    3.5' lift in the front w/ Bilstein 5100 Shocks & Eibach Coils, 1.5' in the back with blocks & billies. Tinted windows. Tinted Tail-lights. Blacked out corner lights. Uws tool box. Whip Antenna. 2nd gen 16' wheels. Flowmaster 40 dual exhaust. 1.25' Wheel spacers all around.
    Hey guys I'm looking to lift my 2002 ext cab prerunner and I'm wondering whether to go with the 2.5 bilstein set up in the front and 2 inch blocks in the back, or 3 inch suspension rough country lift. And you think I could fit 33's with the billies? Thank you!

    nothing, all stock expect got a OE replacement air filter K&N.
    yes you can. but it will be a rough ride. 33 will need trimming. why not settle for eibach springs with bilstein @ 0 and add a leaf to the rear instead of the block. dont go cheap. you will regret.

    How high will both the billstein and the eibach springs do? That's true, add a leaf's quality is much better than blocks.

    fox extended travel remote resivoir coilovers, 14" eibach 600lb coils, All Pro tubular chromoly 1" uniball upper control arms, All Pro expedition leaf packs, 10" bilstein 5150 piggyback reservoir shocks 265/75r16 Goodyear wrangler MT/R kevlars wrapped around 16" Helo 791 gloss black, Mini H1 retrofits with 6000k bulbs, 18" magnaflow w/custom exhaust reroute various decals, Sockmonkey retro hood stripes
    setting the 5100's to "0" and letting the eibachs do the lifting will get you around 3.5" of lift.
    they will also perform much better than the 5100's at their highest settings.

    33"s may rub, though.
