    Hello everyone. Just wanted to ask for everyone opinion and or advise. I have a 2011 DC long bed 4wd sport edition on 17" stock rims. I plan on installing a 3" lift in the near future. I would like to get everyone's recommendation as to what I should go with. Specifically which coil over kit, uca's, and rear shocks. I had the TSB performed so as of today the rear end is a little higher. Definitely a rake that I would like to level out. So thanks in advance to all who respond, very much appreciated.

    Welcome to TW man, first question everyone is going to ask you is what you will use your truck for, that will help us recommend a lift for you. You could also search the subject you will find endless threads with the info you are looking for.

    I'll be using my truck as a daily driver with some offroading on the weekends. I try to go out to Ocotillo a couple times a year to camp, ride dirtbikes and wheel around there. My budget will probably be capped at or around 4 thousand. But we'll see what the wife says. ;) I've been trying to read up as much as I can before posting or asking any dumb questions. Anyhow let me know what you guys are thinking on lift options. Thanks.

    Welcome! Do you plan on getting larger tires too? Because that will take up a decent amount of your 4k. But there are many routes you can take.. Coilovers of your choice and no UCA or ext Coilovers and UCA, matching rear shocks w/ Res I if you like, rear AAL... or you can do something simple yet effective like an OME setup..

    I'm no expert. Bit if you have 4 grand to play with and you don't wheel that often or that hard.

    1. OME all around with rear Dakar or All Pro leafs. Then your choice to UCAs: icon, camburg, TC or LR for UCAs. That gives you roughly 2000 to spend on wheels and tires or what ever else you want.

    2. If you want adjustable coil overs then look into Fox, camburg, race runner, or icons. Rear shocks to match.


    Honestly I wouldn't spend the cash on remote resi shocks unless you want the look of them. It just doesn't seem like you would use them to what hey were built for.

    You will ask 10 people the same question and get 10 different answers. Until someone says icon, because it seems like those are the cool shocks to have.

    I'd save the cash for something else. Go OME and spend the rest on a supercharger

    You have a great point, but wasn't mentioning Icon because they're "Cool"! It's because they're superior in my opinion! OME to Icon is apples to oranges but you're right if he wont use it??

    I agree on the Apples to oranges. You can't compare a strut/coil spring to an adjustable coil over built for racing.

    This is what i was looking at. http://www.demello-offroad.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=27_25_30&products_id=98 What do u guys think about this setup? I will probably pick the total chaos uca's with it. If anyone has this same setup then please chime in. It seems like a really great deal. with a 3" lift do i need a diff drop kit still? FYI i know it says 05-06 on the website but i found out that was a typo and will work up to 2012. As far as wheels and tires, i do need to include that in my budget :mad: apparently.

    According to a lot of peeps on here that's a perfect set up. I bet that's gonna ride nice. Post pics when it gets put on.

    Yeah i really hope so. I will definitely post some pics. I still need to put some up of my truck stock lol. I have some on the iphone now but they were taken when it was kinda dark out. I'll put those up in a sec. Im thinking i might have to run the stock rims for a few but with new tires it shouldnt look that bad.
    ok so i have to wait on the pics until i get home this evening, apparently you cant upload from the iphone directly.:(

    IMO, like someone said above, the ICONS/FOX is probably going to be a bit overkill for you. Save some money and go with OME and even the Toytec ULK is nice. You can use the extra cash for armor and what not. And from what Ive learned on this site so far, the Diff drop on the 2nd gen is worthless, dont waste your money on it.
