    Alright, I think I have decided... I THINK. lol (08 DC PreRunner)
    So, I want a full 3" out of this deal. I'm going to go with the OME suspension kit probably off of Toytech unless someone knows better prices!? link : http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.ph...tegory_id=113&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=72

    Personal specs: 885s, Top plate spacer, 2" AAL, and no diff drop (2WD)and rear N182 shocks.

    Is there anything else I HAVE to purchase for this lift? and Shouldn't it give me the 3" im looking for? Thanks TW!

    I'm glad you posted that. I am about to cancel my order with wheelers and have them do it. It'll save me a bit. Wheeler's kit is cheaper, but coil installation and shipping are rediculous. So toytec will save me a bit and keep me from having to have my truck down while I have somebody assemble the coils.

    Shipping is $78. A stinking carrier bearing drop kit costs $13 to ship. The price for the kit was $65. In total, I am spending $1328 after my TW discount. About $70 off of the price without mentioning TW. I paid about the same as I would have without the coils installed from wheelers and now I wont be down for a while while getting them installed. I would have been paying about $1482 from wheelers if they installed the coils.

    Maybe I'm not following you

    You are getting your kit , to your door , cheaper from Toytec than from Wheelers for the same kit ?

    Yes.

    Toytecs kit is more expensive, but the shipping and coil assembly are much cheaper. Toytecs OME kit is 1215, bearing drop kit is 12.5, coil assembly is 100, and shipping is 78. Grand total of $1392.50. Minus thier discount, that should come up to 1328.63.

    Wheelers kit is much cheaper(1110) and bearing drop is included, but assembly is $200 and shipping is 172. This makes it $1482.

    As far as I can tell, it's the same kit. Then only negatives of both is some is out of stock. Wheelers is out of the rear shocks til sometime this week possibly and Toytec is out of dakars until sometime after the first of the month. Toytec is going to ship what they have and send the springs when they get there. No seperate shipping.

    Toytec's shipping is only $78 to ship the whole kit including the Dakars ?

    I found the same thing. Without shipping and pre-assembly costs, wheelers kit is cheaper, but they wanted $200 to pre-assemble the front shocks, vs. Toytecs $100 pre-assembly. As far as shipping goes, it probably just depends on where you're having it shipped to. I live on the east coast, so toytec (Colorado) is considerably closer to me than wheelers (Oregon), hence the cheaper shipping costs. I went with toytec and couldn't be happier, and everything was at my door within 5 days.

    That's right Oz. Imagine that! Big differance. I was just a little pissed cause it cost $13 to ship a $12.50 item that doesnt weigh much..... But otherwise, looks like a good deal.

    I think the shipping deal is just how they choose to ship it. They cant be looking for the cheapest method. I would rather save the money and wait longer to get it or have the option for faster shipping if I had the money and needed it now.

    I'm glad this thread made me take a look at toytec or I would have been out some extra money or had my truck down longer than neccesary.

    I had a discount code for toytec that save me close to 80... so free shipping essentially. And I do like the Bilstein set up, but a lot of people I know have gone with the OME lift and are very pleased so i'm leaning that way right now. And OME is a little cheaper... But cheaper could come back to haunt you.

    OME is only cheaper because it is not adjustable in height
