Who has the Revtek 3" lift?

I am planning on oredering this kit soon with the AAL in the rear. Does anybody here have it? I need to know if it's worth buying. Do you really get a level 3" lift. What kind of ride does it give you. I'm only lifting for the looks and don't plan on off-raoding at all. Any other info about this kit is appreciated.

I have it and I regret it. If you really have your mind set on it, make sure you get the AAL instead of the block.

I'll be straight up with you...it rides like shit! You feel every bump! I'm getting pretty tired of it and can't wait to upgrade.

Yes, it does give 3 inches. However, your rear will sag.

Sounds just like my past experience. I have since taken the front spacer out, and replaced the stock coils and shocks with the trd OR springs and bilstein shocks. This weekend I'll be installing the 5100s in the front.

I have an AAL in the rear and it has held up fine, but the front rode terribly harsh.

TSB = Toyota Service Bulletins refering to the 3 leaf rear packs switch to 4 leaf rear packs to haul more weight for the 05+ Tacoma's. Check your dealership. If you can convience them, its free to get another leaf installed if you have a 3 leaf pack in the rear.

x2. You keep asking the same thing over and over, and you keep getting the same results. Go with a coilover lift kit and be done with it.
