    Depends on how much you guys want to spend and how much off-roading will be done or even at all?

    dont get spacer lifts.
    the bilstien 5100's are the cheapest (0.85", 1.75", and 2.5" lift)
    the OME lift is next in cost (replaces the stock coils and shocks - 2.5" lift).
    the toytec coils are probably next in cost (1-3" lift).

    you will need a lift option for the rear. typical solution is the add a leafs with the 5100's.

    at 3" you really should get after market upper control arms that add in camber.

    the toytec ultimate lift kit inlcudes everything for a 3" lift except the UCA's.

    Ya that ultimate lift is pricey but I plan on keeping my truck till the wheels fall off and then replacing them I was hoping there was a moderatly priced kit that was pretty good seeing as how I do want to get into some off roading adventures thanks for the tips hopefully there are more to come

    I would go with the ultimate lift kit. Then buy some Camburg or Total chaos Upper control arms if you want to do some fairly good off road or wheeling...

    If you just want a lift and want to stay on the street more than the dirt you can get the light racing Upper control arms... I just personally dont think the Light UCA are as off road capable as the Camburg or Total chaos

    Nice looking rig!! Yeah either way you go with a suspension lift, its going to get pricey and theres no way around that. But like you said, you plan on keeping that truck for a long time so you might as well do it right the first time.;)

    Exactly, I heard thats a great kit!! I went with the OME 885's w/top plate spacer, 2" rear AAL's, 5100's all around, diff drop kit and TC UCA's. I do some moderate off-roading and I love my setup!!:D

    No it does not unless they can prove that whatever you broke or damaged was due to the lift itself. Theres some right we have but I forgot what the name of it was.:rolleyes:
