    I am thinking about buying this lift kit from Toytec and wanted to see if there is anything else missing from the kit that i would need to install it and more importantly if there is anyone in the Houston area that can help me with the install since i doubt i can do this myself and would rather use the money for new tires.

    OME Suspension lift kit
    Front coil options: Med_885_coils
    Top plate spacers: No_top_plate_spacers
    Rear Options: ToyTec_add-a-leafs__Standard

    I would get one of the 3 leaf progressive AALs instead of a 1 leaf AAL if I was getting an AAL.

    Too many to list

    I agree with his suggestion, I would buy just the front components themselves from ToyTec and then purchase the 3-leaf progessive AAL kit from wheelers off-road >http://www.wheelersoffroad.com/05uptacoaal.htm

    It's a better alternative, I am running them on mine and they work great, plus you get some increased payload capacity.

    I live up in Spring. Do you have a shop or somewhere down there we could use? I dont mind driving once everything comes in. My driveway isn't flat and i dont have the jacks and probably some of the tools.

    That sounds fun. I don't expect much interest in the Super Bowl the next day and with a stock 2WD truck, i can function as the "cooler on wheels" somewhere along the convoy. Let me see what i have going on and then post to that thread.
