    my kit is nothing more than a leveling kit as well. Its spacers, but 3" in the front, and .25" AAL in back.

    I'm just finishing up the $1,000 worth of stuff to make my truck look the way I want, and I said I would be done for a while. Every time I see a taco with the 3' kit and 33' tires on it I know it won't be long before I'm dishing out another $2k to buy the Toytec Ultimate and a set of 33's.

    Here is mine when I had the bigger lift on. It's close to 3" using DR coilovers up front and Deaver 10 leaf springs in the rear with DR resi shocks. Tires are BFG AT.

    Thanks! You're truck is sweet. Keep up the good work. I've thought about adding the black vinyl strip on my front bumper too and a Satoshi grill. Looks good.
