What is the best inexpensive 3" lift?

I've seen Toytec's, Revtek's, and the Ready Lift. All under $450. Is there others better then these for the same price?

You could do a cheap spacer lift. If 3" is your goal, your budget needs to include money for an aftermarket UCA. Otherwise, stick to 2.25/2.5".

Another option would be to buy four Bilstien 5100 shocks. They're adjustable to 2.5" in the front. You'll need an Add a Leaf for the rear to keep the truck level.

I have a toytec 3 inch spacer lift comes with everything and shippin for like 367. Its not to bad of a ride. As for the uca if u want to use the stock ones with bigger tires you will have to get aftermarket rims with a small backspacing to move ur tire away from the uca.

He'll need new UCA's with 3" of lift cause his tires won't camber out correctly...trust me I know lol
