    There's quite a few threads on the forum with many reviews on them.

    What are your intended uses for your truck?

    Ya, I just did a very quick search last night and I didn't find much. I'm planning on doing quite a bit of off-roading and I don't want to go to a 6" lift.

    Are you going to add a lot of armor (plate bumper, skids, winch) to the truck? I would put Old Man Emu on your short list also, they make some good stuff. Also, the 3" lifts are better for off roading, the 6" lifts actually have less ground clearance because of the drop bracket.

    No, I am not currently planning on adding a lot of armor to the front. I will be putting on the TRD skid plate on the front, but other than that no plans. Here is the setup I am currently thinking about:

    Front
    - Coilovers (see post 1 for current options)
    - Differential drop kit
    - Front Swaybar relocate kit

    Rear
    - All-pro expedition leaf springs
    - Pro Comp MX6R Reservoir Shocks (http://www.topguncustomz.com/Store/Gen2ProdDisplay.php?iview=212341896)
    - Pro Comp Loop-to-stem conversion kit (http://www.topguncustomz.com/Store/Gen2ProdDisplay.php?iview=208905776)
    -Pro Comp Urethane 2" Res to 2" shock body mounting kit (http://www.topguncustomz.com/Store/Gen2ProdDisplay.php?iview=250936886)

    I am looking at extending the rear brake lines due to the 4" rear lift. The one thing that I am not sure about is the UCA's. Would I need to replace these initially too or could I do the rest and then replace them later? The tires I would like to run are the 265 or 285/70R17 Toyo MT's.
