    Lifted and bigger tires
    Ok, So ive been thinking/wanting a lift (3 inchish) since i bought the truck, but really dont want to replace the tires, since they only have 6k on them. Ive worked 130 hours in the past 16 days, so i have some extra cash coming my way and I have a few questions (im not too informed on lifts and such)about my options:

    1. Toytec Ultimate lift kit....expensive, but i dont want to have to redo anything, so id rather do it right the first time. Do i have to get UCAs also?

    2. Billys all the way around?? AALs

    3. any other options????

    Im obviously not to informed about them, I have been reading threads about different lifts, but have no clue what do decide. I will be keeping my stock 265/75/16 tires until they wear out, but really dont want to have to do anything else at that point besides upsize to 285s if possible.

    Will my truck look goofy with a lift and the 265s on it? an pictures of that may help, but im still up in the air. Basically i guess im wondering what the pros and cons are of each lift "system." Also if anyone has any experience with doing it youself, ease of intallation would be helpfull. Thanks in advance and sorry for the long post

    ps i put this post in the suspension thread also, so admins feel free to delete it if it is in the wrong spot. Thanks
