    i would chose Toytec over sky jacker any day. Toytec specializes in Toyota's and from my experience there products are top notch for your money.

    toytecs are adjustable and ome's are not...so if later down the road you want more or less lift you have options...but they do cost more

    OME is adjustable. You can add trim packers to the shocks. You can add as many as you would desire.

    Ya I've been looking at toytec I like there products I was trying to decide on the aal or the complete rear springs I'm not so much worried about the ride as I am towing with the lift.

    No you can't. That'll preload the springs WAY too much. Not to mention the suspension geometry won't allow it.
    Adjustment is handy- but not worth it imho. I've got tires that won't fit under the truck if I drop the lift down much at all...I don't see any sagging after almost a year....No reason to pay extra for some threads.

    yeah i guess if you want a 3" lift and are gonna leave it there get the ome...as for me i'm only lifting the front about 1.75" and not lifting the rear....to level the truck out....i can look at it and if i need a lil adjustment i can lower it down or up or if later i wanna go bigger i can raise it to 3" and aal in the rear
