I have looked at all the options for toytec
and I was wondering what everyone recommends.

I was also in the same boat w/ my DCLB 4x4. I couldn't afford a fancy lift and wanted to maintain the stock feel for the first year or two, but needed something to help prevent the bottoming out at one of my favorite hiding spots. I went with a 2" spacer up front and a 1" block in the back.
Super happy with the results for now. No more bottoming out or scraping mudflaps, all with a nice stock feel...and installed for well under $3 bills. It's nice cause it is functional for what I do, as I won't be wheeling too crazy just yet in my brand new truck...cost way too damn much money for that right now.
This is not the end goal, however. A year or two down the road I will graduate to some 3" coils and a new leaf pack. Just trying to save for that...so the real fun can begin.
Here's how it looks with the spacer/block set up.
Hope this helps your decision either way.
