    So im still kinda new to the 'lift' world and im debating on what to get and want to here from real users. I have done alot of searching on here to learn but still cant find a totall answer. I looking at a 3 to 5inch lift. I do offroad and i want it setup for expeditions. I know i want a new leaf pact in the rear not blocks, but for up front not sure, I want a 33ish tire im debating between a toyotec 3in lift or RCD4-5 i read that a 3+ is hard on CV joints but you get more travel/under clearance for ruts etc but the RCD looks good aswell but the whole drop bracket deal looks like it could promote problems and if it breaks out in the no were the you would be stranede and not even able to 'limp' home, im trying to stay around 2k in price. Thanks for any advice :)

    Grey wire MOD, deck plate, diff breather MOD, 2nd gen. OME 883# on Tundra 5100's, OMD custom 3" leafsprings, rear shock relocation, Ivan Stewart TRD rims w/285/75/16's, '02 bumper MOD, Famous Fabrications sliders , LED interior/exterior lights, bed bar, Custom tube bumper, Old school KC day lighters,Red Ring 8" HID flood, Kenwood vhf 2M.. umm some other shit I'm forgetting right now
    You could go with the Bilstein 5100's & either the Eibach/ToyTec 3" coils in front or OME 883#'s (thats what I've got) on Bilstein 5100's both give 3" & sadly not advised to go over 3" with IFS because you'll lose the alignment specs,& increased cv angle which will wear things out pretty quick,also you willpossiblyto go to a drop bracket, I guess if someone has to have 4"+ maybe body lift (better than spacers anyway)

    But for getting 33"'s under , with the 3", the right back spaced rims & some plastic trimming, maybe knock down a pinch weld you'd have minimal rubbing when off roading
