    good price? What else do i need to make this up to 3" setup? I plan on off roading a bit but mostly daily driving. I will be eventually getting a small camping trailor to pull as well. What is better for my needs, the OME Dakars? or the toytec AAL? I really want a 3" setup so should I save the money on the dakars and put that towards new upper control arms? OME Lift Kit would come to around $758.00

    If you need to save some money- Then yes- Get an AAL and forego the Dakars. But if you can swing it or save a little longer- Do both. Totally worth it IMHO.

    So if I go with the Dakars do i still need an AAL to get a 3" lift in back? Does the AAL in the ome lift kit w/out TSB get me 3" in the back? I definately dont wanna sag while towing. Also would front spacer with the lift i posted give me 3" up front? I've been researching but I think i'm on overload from everything i "think" i learned

    IIRC the Dakars are like 2.5 to 2.75 inches of lift- I wouldn't try to throw an AAL in there. Depending on what you tow- Sag is going to happen...Maybe not all the way to the bump stops- but it will sag some.

    You can put a small spacer (like 1/4 inch) on the front to get the full 3 inches.

    Ok so with the front spacer and dakars would the front and back be level? I'm not into the leanback look. If I decide on the cheaper route with the 1/4 spacer and the AAL would that be level?
