Did I buy to much for my lift?

    Toytec ultimate lift kit with Dakar rear leaf springs. 3"NFab's
    I have spent many hours on this site researching my lift. This is what I ended up ordering. Toytec ultimate lift with Dakars. I also added the diff drop kit, carrier bearing drop kit, axle shims and the sway bar relocate kit. What are yor thoughts? Did I miss anything? Didn't go with UCR yet as want to see if my shop can get it aligned without them first. Thanks for your input. I plan on pulling the boat out of the water before the lift to get some good before and after shots with weight on the back. Not sure if anyone would find that useful or not.

    I just installed the Toytec Ultimate w/Dakars a couple of weeks ago along with Total Chaos UCAs.

    Did not install the diff drop, bearing drop, or shims. Figured I'd wait to see if they were needed. Absolutely no problems.

    Do the UCAs. When I had my truck aligned, the toe was the only item out of spec.

    the bigger benefit of the UCA's over the alignment help is the down travel you will get back. IMO 3" lift coilovers that max out the stock UCA is really only half the lift kit.

    Axle relocate plate or longer bumpstops to keep larger tires from contacting front of rear wheel well under full compression. Cab mount chop plates up front.

    Thanks for all the advice. My rim and tire set up will be the 16x8 Ivan Stewarts with 265x70x16. Do you think the cab mount chop plates and the axel relocate plate would still be necessary?

    No, that's a stock tire size.

    You won't need to chop the cab mount unless your running 285's. Only thing I install with my 3" OME lift was the CB drop. No vibes at all. I did install the LR UCA's though. Truck aligned perfect.
