Lift Help in Houston

I am thinking about buying this lift kit from Toytec and wanted to see if there is anything else missing from the kit that i would need to install it and more importantly if there is anyone in the Houston area that can help me with the install since i doubt i can do this myself and would rather use the money for new tires.

OME Suspension lift kit
Front coil options: Med_885_coils
Top plate spacers: No_top_plate_spacers
Rear Options: ToyTec_add-a-leafs__Standard
Front Diff drop kit: No diff drop kit (2WD) (- $29.00)
Add Rear shock stone guards (Pair): NO
NEW! Assemble front shocks/coils with new bushings: NO

I would get one of the 3 leaf progressive AALs instead of a 1 leaf AAL if I was getting an AAL.

I agree with his suggestion, I would buy just the front components themselves from ToyTec and then purchase the 3-leaf progessive AAL kit from wheelers off-road >http://www.wheelersoffroad.com/05uptacoaal.htm

It's a better alternative, I am running them on mine and they work great, plus you get some increased payload capacity.

That sounds fun. I don't expect much interest in the Super Bowl the next day and with a stock 2WD truck, i can function as the "cooler on wheels" somewhere along the convoy. Let me see what i have going on and then post to that thread.
