    So I finally got around to lifting my truck. I installed the lift a little over a week ago even though I ordered my lift in the middle of June :cool:. I also tinted my windows and added vent visors. I'll post up pics the next day I have off work. :D

    The lift specs are toytec coilovers with 5100s in the front and 5100s in the rear with a dakar leaf pack. I did the install myself with some help from friends and the biggest problem we had was the eye bolts on the front of the leaf springs did not want to come out so we spent alot of time cutting both bolts off.

    I believe they are eibach springs (its whatever comes with the toytec ultimate lft). I'm not sure on the exact amount of lift I forgot to measure the height before the install :eek:. the 5100s are set at 2.5" of lift.

    Yes it does need bigger tires :D. I'm looking into getting 255/85/16s in the near future hopefully.

    nothing, all stock expect got a OE replacement air filter K&N.
    looks sweet. hows the setting at 2.5 on the shocks? how do they ride? stiff?

    i want to go 3' inch and set it at 1.75 but i'm worry about the stiffness. so i'm just asking hows the ride at 2.5.

    I think its a nice firm ride at 2.5 and I like it way better over the stock suspension.

    Thanks :D. The rear is firm and feels way more stable than the worn out leaf springs I had before. I do have some vibrations around 70 mph but i think it might be that my tires need balanced...
