    ReadyLift makes a good 3/2 kit.

    I like mine.

    I used the Rough Country 2" front level spacer and a 1" tapered rear block from Amazon. I believe the rear block was from "Heavy Metal Suspensions".

    Thanks for all the advice.

    Would it be bad to use a 2" rear block? I want to keep the factory rake. Or should I go with new leafs? Also will I need or be better off getting new UCAs or is it not necessary with only 2" front lift?

    For those of you that are running the spacer kits from Toytech or LowRange. Are you using the diff drops?

    I m about to get the exact same set up on my 3rd gen. I'm going to be running a 285-70-17, wheels 17x9 -12 offset. Did you have to do the body mount chop?

    As shown in my picture, I’m running factory wheels with 265/75r16s so no body chop or clearance issues.

    This is actually exactly what I was looking for,but was seeing all the hate for spacers so I never considered it. I just want something to make it look a bit beefier and more level without breaking the bank too hard,especially since I probably won't be doing any off roading lol

    2” front and rear with new Bilsteins and Dakar leaf packs. Went with 17x8.5 wheels and 275/70

    Might be more than your looking to do but it rides great, I didn’t have to cut anything, and it handled full stuff out on the trail.

    So if I did a


    I thought about getting that lift from Amazon. But I’ve heard rough country sucks. What have you experienced with yours?

    Looked at there site for the 3/2...didn't see that combo...was it a specific brand ? sorry I am probably overlooking it. I do like the idea of leveling truck...I don't wheel my truck just everyday driving plus hunting/fishing. last truck was an old Ranger that I just cranked the torsion bar to level.
