    It is just a cheap Rough Country spacer lift up front (the type that goes above the coilover). And Icon 3 leaf add a leaf in the rear. I wanted to keep the stock shocks. Maybe at some point I will do a coilover setup in the front. But this setup seems to work and ride and all very well. I know it is often frowned upon. But in my experience so far, it works great. Take it as you will as I do not bash it off road. It is too new and expensive. But for what "I" need, it is perfect. I would have liked more lift in the back. As it is almost Bro like and seems nose high. I may do a Deaver spring set in the back at some point. I am trying to decide between a truck cap or box or even a rack in the back. And I want to decide that before I decide on what I need to change spring wise. For now the truck rides and drives amazing. No rubbing anywhere at all with the tires which measure over 33 inches (they did rub body mounts in front before lift). I am sure they probably will offroad flexed out. But I pushed the castor cams forward when I installed the lift which helped. It is a second vehicle for me so it doesn't get daily driven. I am happy with it.

    Well you sound like me. I don’t want to take mine off-road like a lot the guys on here. I just like the look of bigger tires and lift. Yesterday I delivered a package that fedex mistakenly left on my porch. It was a rural road that turned into a muddy road. It was the worse road my truck had been on. I honestly could’ve driven my wife’s Camry on it. But it was quite muddy and now my truck is.

    So the ride quality didn’t suffer that much with the lift? I would like about 2” up front and enough out back to make it level or a little high.

    It actually rides amazing. I think the rear feel actually improved. The front is the same as nothing much changed there. If there is any change in ride or drive, it is mostly unnoticeable. I think the most noticeable change overall was the extra stopping distance. I equate that to the fairly heavier and larger wheel and tire combo. Power is not to me anyway, changed. I am basically very happy with the mods and especially the price to benefit ratio. When these shocks wear out, I will probably do un upgrade. But for me, there would be no benefit to spend the cash for a King or Elka or whatever setup. The stock shocks work very well. I do have a diff drop and carrier bearing drop and ECGS needle bearing to bushing parts all here for if I need them at some point. I have no vibes as of yet. So I am not putting them in until I feel I need them. All of it is fairly inexpensive stuff. So no biggie if I don't use them. The thing I am closest to wanting to change is to raise the rear height up. Measuring wise, it is basically level. But to me and my friends, it seems a little nose high. Many people like that look. I prefer the rear a nip high. I may try putting the stock overload spring in (instructions noted to remove it). That would give a little lift. I know some people have done that. I just like the ride so much now that i am hesitant to change anything.

    Thanks for the honest review. Yeah if it ain’t broke don’t fix it goes a long ways. I read the negative comments about that type of lift and think I should avoid it but at the same time I want the ride height and the looks. I need to check with my mechanic and see about the bearing to bushing swap. If I install a lift I may go ahead and do that at the same time.
    Considered the toyota lift but the best quote I got around here was $2k installed. Seems a bit high for shocks and grill. But now with the stop sale order it may be off the table anyway.

    Front lift: https://www.roughcountry.com/toyota-leveling-lift-kit-744c.html

    Rear lift: https://www.headstrongoffroad.com/store/p95/Icon_1.5_Inch_Progressive_Add-a-leaf_-_51100_(PAIR).html

    So about $285 for what I have done. ECGS front needle bearing to bushing replacement (not installed yet) as well as the install tools is about $150. And carrier bearing drop and front diff drop are about $60. So total is about $500. Much of which may not be needed. Granted I have a Pro model and the shocks are different. But these parts fit both models. The Pro models are a bit higher in the front, so It will change lift heights a bit. I know there are other factors to check. Such as if you can run into shocks bottoming out with stock bump stops. I have read where some have damaged front shocks from this. From what I have read, it was with "Off-road" models with the shocks that come with it. They are a lot thinner where the body meets the bottom stem that attaches to the A-arm. If you bottom out the shock before the truck engages the bump stops, I could see how this could be an issue. Maybe adjust the bump stop in some way to avoid. Many people forget the importance of properly set bump stops. I am going to be cycling my suspension and check for how things go soon. I was just diagnosed with Vertigo a couple of days after installing the lift and it has kept me a bit out of the action. So I am going to get back into things when I can. I like to do things in stages and see what the actual results are, instead of just taking things off of "word of internet" for granted. There is so much bad information and wrong opinions out there.

    Awesome thanks a lot. I will look at the parts you used and go from there. I doubt I would be bottoming the shocks out as I’m rarely off of the pavement and at 50 yrs old I just don’t drive like I did when I had my 1990 toyota. Shew the crap that that poor truck went through wasn’t even fair. I ashamed of the way I treated it back then but man it was fun.

    Sorry to hear about the vertigo. Hope you feel better soon. My wife had it a few years back and it sucked. She was sick and messed up for a bit but the dr gave her something to slow the bodies reaction to movement and it helped until it was gone.

    Keep posting as you make mods to yours and I will do the same.

    Warmer weather is just around the corner, can’t wait for more road trips so I can stare at my truck in different places.
