    so i just read through 3 pages of the this forum trying to see if anyone asked a similar question to what i am going to ask.
    all the posts were great. origionaly i was going to go wit ha 6in lift, but its not practical for what i intend on using ir for. The most off road action i will see if maybe the beach and my stock ride can handle it. But i want a lift that looks good and i wont have issues with. as far as money goes i'm willing to save and spend for what i choose. looking for a 3-4in lift. can anyone give some advise or suggest any parts to give me what i want. thanks!

    don't mean to be rude, but everyone asks for a 3-4in lift that will ride well and won't kill the wallet... and everyone gets the same answer:

    OME 3"
    5100s all around
    toytec ultimate

    any lift over 2.5" will need new UCA to keep alignment in specs but many choose to not install them (myself included)

    To add: OME and the 5100's are a 2.5 to 3" lift. If you want to go higher, you need a drop bracket lift.

    Prerunner or 4x4?

    If prerunner, spindles will give you 4" lift without changing the stock suspension geometry.

    if you want 4 inches go with the rcd. you dont get a ton of ground clearance due to the drop bracket but your cv's will last for ever.
