    Any opinions on rough country 3" Suspension lift? I need to know if anyone has any experience with these. A friend recommended them to me. Seems inexpensive and good quality. I just don't want to do anything to mess up my truck in the long run. I just bought it new, a 2010 trd off-road mgm dc 4x4, and plan on keeping it for the next 10 years at least. I want a small lift that won't mess the truck up over time. thanks for all the advice.
    Is there anything else I would need in addition to this?

    if this is the one your talking about i wouldnt go with it if i were you. spend a few more bucks and put a nicer lift in instead(Bilstein,OME,Coilovers such as Icons,Kings,Camburgs,Fox,etc),youll be much happier trust me.Your choice though.If you plan on keeping your truck for ten years then it would be worth it to have a nicer more reliable lift.

    also stay away from blocks in the rear, they will cause premature sag of the leaf springs and a bad ride.

    i had the rough country lift, i hated it!!! horrble ride quality, my rear leafs sagged like a mother on top of axle wrap/hop. front suspension felt like i had 2x4's as struts. believe me spend the extra money and get bilsteins or an ome lift from toytec!!

    dont know how they cause bad ride coz they are just spacers in front, well maybe the rear but i didnt notice any change in ride quality.. if not just a bit better. I have 5100s shock in front though. But i think other than the premature sag in leaf spring its all good. Once the oem leaf spring goes then im gonna upgrade to full leaf. For sure this is not the best option though but will work on a budget.
