    I just hate Pro Comp in general. Most of their pruducts, and tires I have seen fail horribly on the street and trail. And their customer service SUCKS. I have seen their shocks pull apart when wheeling, and seen MANY of their tires blow to peices when just driveing down the street. My Buddy had one blow out and beat the liveing shit out of the side of his truck (tire was actually the 3rd replacement that pro comp had given him), and it took almost a year for them to reimberse him for the cost.
    BUT, as their lift is a spacer type, there is not much they can do to screw it up. :)

    I have no experience with them. If they are a short AAL, they will ride harsh. If they are long, then they should have a good ride. I cant remember who makes the AAL for Pro Comp.

    that is nice!!! Thats exactly what i'm looking for. I saw that u put a toytec 3'' kit with the aal. Did u get the tsb for the rear suspension. If so....was it hard to put the aal.

    I'm drawing a blank with the "tsb" acrynim. I've heard it a ton but can't remember what it stands for. Refresh my memory.

    Tsb= technical service bulletin. Its kinda like a recall but i guess they don't want to call it that. I've read alot of posts that said once they had the new spring put in, they had trouble putting on the new aal. Did u have modify the brake lines at all? Also, why did u pick the aal kit over the block kit?

    The block would make the ride stiffer. Plus, Toytec offers a short or long AAL. I got the long cause it produced a softer ride. I haven't got the trb done either. No modification for brake lines is needed for 2005 and up models. Just install and go. I'm super satisfied with the lift.

    Thanks for the replies. I'm trying to get the lift put in before the year is up. I gotta try to sneak it by the wife too. Maybe she won't notice.:d

    It NEVER works. I can't sneeze without her noticing. Last time I bought new tires, she said "Wow, I bet these were expensive!" Only difference between them and my old ones was they were an inch taller. WTF!
