    Hey, I was just looking for some suggestions on a moderate lift (2"-3") for a single cab 4x4. I was thinking about getting a Toytech TAC3-AL-9000 kit but I've heard some bad things about spacers and add-a-leafs as far as ride comfort. What are some setups that provide a 2"-3" lift with good ride quality? Bilstein 5100? Coilovers? Another thing, what are your thoughts on wheel spacers? I'm looking at getting some oversized Goodyear Wrangler MT/R's.

    Bought the truck 3 months ago with a total of 67 miles on it and dealer installed 16" Ultra Baja Champ wheels.Since then I have also installed a K&N cold air intake and a Westin bull bar.

    Hook it up bro, research research research. And get rid of the bull bar, a small hit to the front will end up making more damage with that thing on there.
