    Im thinking of lifting my 2012 double cab and wanting to probably do a 3in lift and am looking for ideas that would be the best as far as cost and reliability

    I am and have burned this site up doing my research for the exact same mod.

    Search these forums and spend some time reading the dif view points, but stick with the points that relate to actual ownership of the suspension as opposed to hear say.

    Contact Down South Motorsport to get specifics answered and use their pricing as a solid spring board for comparisons.

    After you do your reading/homework, you may find your suspension concept changing as to what you want your truck to do.

    I am gravitating toward this Icon stage 4 kit, but if not happy with the leaf springs, will upgrade them again.

    I am also directly in contact with my local Fab crawler shop for their pricing and advice.

    I am also going broke in my virtual money world...

    If you are a do it yourself type, your options are endless!

    Best example I got for that is this guy!
