    I....have a dream....that one day I will have....my lift....


    anywho. Alright trying to save money right now but I also really want to blow it on a lift. So with that in mind here are my three options....

    A) Buy Users current lift since he's selling truck, which includes:
    ICON 2.5 ET C/O's, DSM UCA's, AP Leaf Pack, AP U-bolt flip, walker evans rears and diff spacers.
    $1500 Shipped.

    B) Billy 5100's adjustable lift by toytec, which includes (need i say):
    4 Height adjustable Bilstein front 5100 shocks, spacer for correction of drivers side lean, Eibach/Toytec front coil springs 620lb spring rate, Diff Drops, & AAL.
    $700, not incl shipping

    or...

    C) Buy a used set of ICON 2.5 ET C/O's with (cam, ic, tc, dsm) UCA's and put a block or aal in the back until I get more money to buy rears with an AP, or Dakar leaf pack.
    Aprox 900.


    My dilemma: Im leaving the army in 2 weeks, coming home and starting school. I have 800 in the bank right now and will get my last 1600 on the 1st.
    As i write this I think I know I should just wait and save my money but fuck it, I already wrote all this so lemme get some opinions here. There's always new stuff to lear like how option C is probably not a good idea. I can hear it now...:rofl:

    I would do what you want done the first time. With that said, I would consider building up your leaf pack with some American steel leaf's (like Old Man Doug is doing) for cheap.

    But school is $$$ so I might consider waiting.

    It depends if he's using the stock coils , or has the one with the lean spacer on the wrong side

    " The toytec " doesn't tell me much

    Anyway , I'm going to bed

    sorry didn't mean to thread jack....just voted with what I had and mentioned my issues to help you decide......also deleted my post just a little too late.
    so my mechanic wasn't aware the ULK Co's were side specific either...guess I'll be calling him and toytec tomorrow to solve this bs!

    Save your money to buy a nice house.

    Since that will likely not happen, go with A. Never half ass a vehicle project if you can avoid it.

    ULK c/o are not side specific unless they installed a top plate lean spacer in one of them

    Not with the GI Bill :D

    OP I didn't read the options very thoroughly, sorry, but I will say don't "settle" and lift twice. Wait till you have enough for what ya want. Having something in mind you're saving for saves me more money anyways because I spend less on other junk. GL

    Well unfortunately you don't get your education benefits with a General under honorable conditions discharge so I might have to be paying for those $$$ anyways. Thanks for the advice though and your right about that, I do save more money when I have something in mind. Hmmm...
