Best 3'' lift

Trying to decide on a lift, and I am having a little trouble on who to go with. Any suggestions?

Extreme Truck Toys makes a 3" billet aluminum spacer with a Pro-Comp AAL for about $180 shipped.

I just ordered the lift from extreme truck toys. Should be here on wednesday. total was $189, which included the front spacers, front diff drop, rear AALs and shipping. Theirs seemed to be the cheapeast and easiest to install. Only basic tools, a floor jack and jack stands. Thats what they claim anyway. I guess I'll find out in a few days. They're located in So Cal if you want them to install.

Depends on what you mean by "best". If you are just lifting for looks, I can't help. If you want better suspension with the lift for off-road, try Old Man Emu or Skyjacker.

Had the extreme truck toyz 3" on my truck. easy to install. loved it. the stock rear shocks worked but you may consider some longer ones in the rear.

Without knowing your budget, this is a pointless thread.

For example.

If you can spend as much as needed. Icon Coilovers, Darkar Leaf Pack, Bilstien 5150 extended length shocks.

On the cheaper side, Toytec 3" with OME Coils and AAL.

Ask yourself a couple questions....

are you doing it for looks? more ground clearence for offroading purposes? do you offroad at all?

i did it for looks alone, so i went with the "cheap" spacers, toytec, and i love my lift.

if you do some fairly rough offroading, it really isn't a matter of do you WANT to spend more money, but you NEED to spend more money to get a lift that can won't limit your travel.
