    i don’t think you are going to get anything for $300. i don’t even think spacers are that cheap. but the “cheap” lift is not going to be any good!

    Toytec site has many options - from $199 to $1400. Maybe someone who knows what he is talking about can give a short synopsis of the different options listed and what the pros and cons are. I am also looking for a lift kit, but don't want something stupid, but at the same time do not want to pay more than I have to - I don't really go off road that much - more a look thing, without compromising ride quality.

    The bilstein set for $899 looks okay to me.

    Similar setup is $999 for the 1st gen - not sure why $100 more.

    I also like this Old Man Emu set for $735 (1st and 2nd gen)

    2.5" lift, ARE Shell, Ducks Unlimited Rubber Floor Mats. ROGUE badges,
    Don't listen to these guys. You need to go out and get a 2.5" top plate spacer for up front and leave the back alone. Then add a 2" body lift so you maintain the nasty bro lean while also having over 4 inches of lift on stock shocks and ucas.

    What's it for?

    After you lift it aren't you going to spend 1500-2000 on tires and rims?

    So why would you cheap out on the suspension that's just as important or more important?

    I don't know anything about you or about your truck other than that it's a 2011 - but hey, that won't stop me. I'm going to tell you just what you need:

    You can't get a good 3" lift for $300 since new UCAs alone are around $400. You can get a decent 1.75" lift for ~$500: Bilstein 5100s all around and AAL in the back. New coils and UCAs are not necessary for this setup.
