    Eibach coils. 5100's all around. AAL. WickedFlow
    Whatever the lift says, is ballpark to what you'll get.

    So if the procomp lift says 3 inches... Your gonna get +-3 inches. Same with 5100's you'll get about 2.5 inches at the 2.5 inch setting...

    Go for 5100's and eibachs.

    5100 on all four corners, fronts set to "0", OME 885 coils, Toytec 2 in AAL
    I was in the same boat as you. Looked hard at the Pro Comp lift, but it got some really poor reviews here. The shocks are what is the weak point. Those that had this lift really didnt like the ride. For about the same money you can do the 5100 with teh eibach coils and an add a leaf for the rear. Its a proven set up and one I will have installed soon. Just waiting on that tax return.

    Even with the 2.5 lift (some get more with the eibachs and 5100's set to .85) you can run 285 tires. I have researched forever here which to go with. This seams to be the one that gets the best return for your money. Next step up would be full coilovers or a spindle lift if you have a prerunner. Plus there is always the 6 inch lift if you want to go that high. I have never been a fan of body spacers on a truck. They just make things look out of wack.
