    Build thread coming soon!
    Those tires are a nice compromise between ability and quiet, and not to far removed from what come on the Off Road models anyway. That little leveling kit is all I bought for mine, too. I didn't want to get too crazy with height, and it certainly helped in the snow!

    Ok, So I got the Autospringcorp spacers, and had to get a 1" block in the rear to level her out.

    After getting here to Guam, I have realized I wanted to go a little higher. Also, when I pull up to most Tacos, I seem MUCH lower. I realize this is tires as well I am running P265/70R17 Nitto Dura Grapplers. So again I throw myself to the mercy of the TW knowledge base.

    I will be getting my own X-mas gift of a lift this year, and am trying to figure out will this lift

    http://toyteclifts.3dcartstores.com/3-lift-kit-with-Bilstein-5100-Height-Adj-Coilovers_p_364.html

    even give me any higher ride?

    Or should I go with a Icon stage one kit? (Don't know what stage one is) They are going to be on sale for cyber Monday.

    Also, what height will I need UCAs, and new brake lines? I have heard 3" is the cutoff before you have to get crazy with things.

    Thanks in advance.

    honestly if u have the money id go icon stage 1 but instead of the rear blocks get the rear leaf pack. but i have OME and its a great lift kit for the price. Love it so far. but if i had the money i woulda gotten the icon.
    but as far as ucas, brakelines, etc....if your stock UCAs rub then you will need new ones. for instance if u get the OME kit w/o the top spacer (what i have, only 2.5" of lift in the front) then you will not need new UCAs because they will not rub. but if you were to go icon or even toytec 3" then you would need new UCAs. because after 2.5" of lift they will start to rub. and depending on how much off roading you do will depend on if u need new extended brakelines. because if u go serious offroading and flex out tour suspension to the max then yes you will need extended brakelines.

    Great info. Thanks. I dont plan on doing any real offroading. Just driving to dive sites, going over logs mostly.
    So, anything over 2.5" buy UCA's? Also will the stage one kit keep me level?
