    You should just do bilstein 5100's front and rear with an AAL in the rear and add eibach springs for the front struts...should be right in your price range.

    Sometimes it is a bit difficult when you have specific information that your looking for and there isn't just one thread for it. Sometimes it is just easier to post a new thread with all the questions and concerns you have....

    I know this a little off topic but I am wondering how to even start a new thread from the home page. I do not see any link or button in my Safari browser. Tia

    Thanks, I knew that but to clarify, Start a new discussion topic. Which I suppose is limited to moderators here on this site.

    " I failed to look at a single one" Actually i did, sorry there wasnt a thread about a first gen on 31x10 craigers and duratracs, i am basing a 600$ investing on what i learn from here i wanted specific model advice. But on a good note thanks everyone else! VERY appreciative !!

    As with all the other thousands of threads, you really didn't need model specific advice. You basically have a First Gen 4X4 that you want to lift about 3 inches. That is all that is needed. Specific model, wheels, and tires have nothing to do with the lift, as you never mentioned if you were lifting to prevent rubbing, etc. Lifts for the First Gen tacos fit about 99 percent of all First Gen Tacos. If you have read all the threads, then you should have seen the same advice in nearly all the threads. The main thing that would vary would be if you have an aftermarket bumper and winch and would need stiffer springs to counteract its weight.

    Don't get me wrong, it is easier to ask, but this topic has been thoroughly covered.
