    Havent been on the site in a couple months but have decided to get myself a nice little xmas present and want to get a 3 inch lift, the only problem is that i have no clue what all i need and am starting to get a little overwhelmed with everything that i am reading. i want to get the toytec 3" with the medium coils with the AAL and then the OME 140S shocks. is that all that i need, now i see that they have the coil over kit for the billy 5100 would that be better and then just get the AAL for the rear.
    I guess that my question is what else do i need other than the lift kit and the OME 140S shocks for the front?

    thanks for the help.

    i was told that i should stay away from spacers and blocks though just because of how stiff of a ride it makes it.

    Check out Toyteclifts.com, there verry popular here. Great lifts for our trucks. And yes, try to stay away from spacer and blocks, they will make your ride stiffer. I got a front spacer and am going to be changing it to a Toytec coil lift with new shocks.

    yeah i was looking at those coil overs and i was debating on them i have the billy 5100 now which the coil overs will work on but i am debating on the med duty lift kit with AAL and then the OME 140S, any one have that set up and how is it. I am currently emailing back and forth with toytec about if i am going to have to change out the UCAs as well.
