    Ugh, I hate spending so much money... but i the end I'll be a lot more happy with this set up then my current set up. Plus I'll have a lot less to worry about maintenance wise.

    So, do any of you guys know good local shops... that have decent rates? Most the places around here charge ridiculous labor rates.

    ordered it thru wheelers offroad cheapest price by far... plus no sales tax (thank you Oregon)

    do what i did when i first needed work done on a vehicle, take the money you would be spending on labour and buy tools instead and do it yourself. Needless to say i have quite the collection of tools now.

    damn you mark. i wanted to be the first one with the RCD lift! I still need to save up more. Ill be running almost 6" in the front and 5" in the rear when i can get it done. Right away with the lift you will get 4.5" in front and 3" in the rear. Good luck with the install. cant wait to see it all.

    I think I'm gonna leave the TSB extra leaf in with the lift...that way I have a little more lift in the rear for rake (don't want to look like Jacob :))
    I will however be removing the Toytec leaf

    you should contact armor tech and get the shackle flip kit which adds i think 1" of lift and then run your toytec aal with TSB leaf and then get a 1" block for the rear Youll be sitting around 3.5"-4" of lift in the rear. 4" block is horrid especially since you hit the trails sometimes. Just my 2 cents.

    lol I didnt see that...

    they don't have the shipping quote online... but they use UPS published shipping rates, so depending on how many packages its probably wont be more than $100 considering they are located about 400 mi away in Grants Pass, OR

    I have to call on monday to get the quote

    HA, got mine for $1600. Lift is done and looks great. I WILL NOT be taking any pics till after Tuesday when the new tires get here. Looks pretty stupid with 3 Mickey's and a Michelin road tire. My mechanic loved it. Easiest one he has ever installed according to him. Good luck with yours.

    thats a good idea, I am hating the idea of a block in the rear. I want the rear to be a little higher than the front though

    yeah well not all of us can get special hook up prices... can you take a quick pic so I can see the stance? is the rear a little higher than the front? I like a little rake.

    I'm still looking for stock coils though too... kenny650 says he has some but I haven't heard back from him yet

    I took out my toytec AAL and just have the TSB. It does have a SMALL ammount of rake to it now. Not very noticable though. Rides GREAAAT!!!
