    ...... If your going to get a drop bracket lift go ahead and get a 6" fabtech or procomp. 3" inch lift will fit 33s just fine if thats what your going for. Drop bracket lifts (the two your looking at) are not exactly the best way to lift our trucks.

    I definitely wouldnt go with that pro comp lift. That's a lot of dough for what is included. If your willing to pay that much, I would go with a good set of coilovers, new UCAs, a leaf pack, and new rear shocks.

    King 3" lift C/Os-$975

    LR UCAs-$450

    Rear billy 5100s-$170

    Deaver Leaf Pack-$230

    Total:$1825 for a damn good lift

    what would i have to get for a 4-5 inch lift or are those coil covers adjustable. 3 inches would be enough room to fit 33x12.5 with little to no rubbing right???

    I'm running 33x12.5s on my 6 inch kit. It all depends on how much you wana trim. I would imagine offroad they would rub like hell. You could always just go with a 33 that is narrower like a 285 or 295...

    And if you dont wana spend that much money you can get something like fabtech for around 800... still better than spacers.

    Or you can do billies and eibachs. There are a variety of options. If your willing to spend 1500-2000 lifting your truck, i would say piece together a kit that has the best from everywhere...

    Just my .02

    I have the Toytec Ultimate Lift kit and I really like it, it's very easy to adjust imo. An add a leaf or full leaf pack will be better than shackles
