    Being that this is the first lift Im gonna do, need a little help on what to do. First, I dont do any off road except if you count occasional forest service roads and old 105. That being said, I drive it to work a couple days a week (120 miles round trip) and am wanting the look and best ride quality. I was looking at the Toytec Ultimate, but have read several people saying it was a waste of money and to buy the billys and and OME coils instead. The back does not have the TSB, so dont know if I should do AAL or get a diffrent leaf pack like deaver or alcan. Gonna run 265/70/17 Goodyear duratracs on 17x9 enduro wheels. Anything else I need, UCA's, diff drop kit, any better options for my needs? Dont wanna go cheap, but dont wanna go extreme. Thanks for the help. Wanna do it right the first time. :thumbsup:

    I think the full OME set-up would be perfect for you. Or the 5100's with the OME coils, but the OME shocks I think work/ride better when there paired with the OME shocks.

    But yeah, Def. get new UCA's like Light Racing, to help with allignment. And if you have 4wd then do the diff. drop. Also in the rear, a 2" AAL will do just fine. Also get the 3* degree shims for good measure.

    What he said^^ you can also look into the kit I did... Eibach springs with bilstein 5100's. U can set the front 5100s to .85 and you'll end up with about 2.5 inches. I fit 285's with minor trimming. I think it would Still look great with 265's.

    Ride and performance is great!
