    Has anyone installed the 426 kit on their 05 thru 09 (4x4, TRD) with 285/75/16 tires? How is the ride/alignment? Will I need spacers to avoid UCA rub if I use the stock wheels for a while?

    Thanks for the comments. My offroading is mild, but I still want a good setup. I think I'll keep reading/researching before I decide.

    Don't want to jack this thread too much, BUT what would you say a reasonable install cost of the 5100's would be?

    Good idea. I liked my Revtek until I took it offroad. Drives great on the street but offroad feels like something is going to break.
