    First of all, just figured I'd say hey to everybody bc I haven't been on here in about 3 months or so. Ok now that's done, just thought I'd get some opinions on a toytec 3" suspension lift or something thats relatively cheap but will get the job done. Not looking to spend a ton of money on this either... but anyways, any opinions will be greatly appreciated.

    haha..... not spending a lot of money...... you're gonna spend money, trust me. If you just get a lift you're gonna end up wanting aftermarket rims, mud tires, etc. How much do plan on shucking out???? Look at the pics of my truck and see if that is what you are trying to do to yours. My profile will let you know what is on it. If you want something similar to my setup, you will spend around 1800-2200 bucks altogether. Hope this helps and I will do my best along with everyone else to help you out buddy.

    well im fine with my stock rims, and I can sell the tires I have now for $700 (had a guy offer the money to me) but I haven't dont it yet. I know I saw either a fabtech, toytec, or revtek lift at one point that was around 300 or 400 but I cant find it anywhere...

    hey brotha.....................good to hear you are wanting a lift. check this one out man..................would be a good one for your truck................

    http://toyteclifts.com/index.php?pa...ategory_id=63&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=53

    you'll get good lift with it, and the ride will be good. either this kit, or the one with the medium 882 coils will be good........although the 882 may be a bit too stiff. im running 881's on my double cab....and thru wheelers offroad, they are considered to be "medium" coils. and whatever kit you get....be sure to get a diff drop for the front too.......they are cheap bro.

    Hi,
    Darrick here from Toytec Lifts.
    That would be a great kit just over the spacer lifts we sell. The ride is great, plus good articulation. Will put a smile on your face both on and off road.
