Hey not trying to beat a dead horse as I read a few other posts when I did a search, but just looking for real world experience from guys with this kit installed.

I was originally just going to go with spacers until I read into it further.

Technically I have it (although pieced together). I have the front coils set at about 2" of lift with TC UCA's. Man... its smooth as butter. Way better than the 5100/884 combo I had.

the website states it is set between 2.5 to 3 inch. When I got mine they were set to 2.5 inch, so im guessing its random?

How much inches of thread do you have below the adjuster ring?
Doug said its a 3" lift so you shoud have 1 3/4" threads below the adjuster ring, if you increase that to the max 2" threads you will have 3 1/2" lift.

Hi VW, Thanks for the show and tell of your thread!

Like the looks of your lift. I have been researching and planning to do a similar lift to my similar truck.

One thing you stated in your thread ..."The c/o's I got with the silver Eibach 600# springs".
Do I understand that coil spring options are available in the Toytec Ultimate lift kit?

I believe the "red" spring are also 600# springs also. As far as options from Toytec, I do not know to be honest. When I placed my order they called me the next day and told me they were out of the red springs. If I wanted them I would've had to wait a few days. They gave me the option of the silver ones and I thought it might look better so I took it.

You might want to call them and ask if there are more options. I do not know if the red springs are Eibach or not, if they are it just might be a color option.

FINALLY!!!! it just got installed, was really concern about ride quality and vibrations because i have seen a lot problems with lift kits, but let me tell u this Toytec ROCKS, no vibes rides almost as good as stock u can feel the bumps a bit more,but cmon is a truck and now it feels like truck im so happyunfortunatly my digital camera died on me so i wasnt able to take pics but as soon i get it charged ill take some.

BTW the guys from Toytec "great service" same day i order my lift same thay was shipped

DIY or get it installed?

Any one have any thoughts on what a shop charges for install including UCA's?
