    I'd recommend heading over to Toytecs website and checking out either one of their kits with 5100's or the OME kit which they also sell. Both of these options are good setups for the money and will come in under $1000 (not including UCA's if you need to go aftermarket). Naturally there is much more higher end stuff you can get, but that will cost a lot more. Alternatively you can go with a cheaper kit like the Pro Comp or the cheapest route of going with a spacer lift (don't do this).

    Tons of people go with Toytec or OME though and I've been happy so far with my Toytec kit.

    Do I need UCA's with either package of the 5100s?

    You may or may not. Some people can get their alignment close to spec without new UCA's, some need them. Personally, I'd recommend just going ahead and getting them. I got them right off the bat to avoid any potential issues. Light Racing are the most affordable ones and work fine. They look stock though so if you're going for aesthetics some of the more expensive brands look nicer with powder coating, logos, etc.

    Thank you everyone. What do I need to pic in the option drop down menu and what's the difference between the 3 5100s packages the have?

    A good 3" lift for a 4wd Tacoma under $1,000 is tough, you either need to increase your budget or go with a lower lift. At 3" of lift, you will need new UCA's which will run you $375 at a minimum and that doesn't leave you a lot left over for the suspension components.

    For 3" of lift, one of the best deals going is the OME kit with 885's, top plate spacers, Light Racing UCA's and an AAL for the rear. You can get the OME kit through either Toytec or Downsouth Motorsports and the control arms through the current Metaltech 4x4 group buy. Read through the link that ColtsTRD sent you on suspension, it should explain quite a bit and at least help narrow your search.

    Icon stage 2 kit with non-ext travel and keep the lift where Icon has them pre-set.....no UCA's will be needed! Best ride on/off road hands down!

    I've had a spacer lift and Toytec's and these are night and day difference! Your not paying much more BTW!
