    It just depends on what you wanna spend. That is a great option. There are less expensive choices but why cheat yourself?

    Try to stay away from a spacer lift. Go with coilover lift. The Toytec ULK is pretty solid for what you pay. If you got a little more coin in the bank get some Icon's, FOX's, or Kings. Maybe think about getting some new UCA's also, Total Chaos, Camburgs, or Light Racing to help out with alignment. Not really needed but definitely recommended.

    Pretty much just search the forum and research each kit. Ask other members what they like and dislike about their setup.

    Hope this helps. Oh yea welcome to TW!

    I have an 01 4Wd and i just put the tuff country 3in lift on my truck and i like it alot it was cheap and not that hard to put in. Its the spacers in the front and blocks in the rear. The only thing is when you do the front you have to compress the springs which is not very easy if you dont have the right tools. Me and two friends put mine on in a day.

    Glad you came check the site out. Welcome Jake. In my pm I said the kit was a great idea but honestly if you don't plan on wheeling it I would go a little cheaper and save some money for your other hobbies. I Have a basic 3" lift from toytec and the ride is great, hell when I get home come drive my truck. I'll be home in a week or so.

    I wouldn't do the spacers but a simple coilover and AAL. If you get the rear spring Tsb you will have the TRD shocks. Which would be a step up. I have the TRD shocks on my setup and haven't had any trouble yet.

    I got to have the front bumped up another 1" though as the springs settled a little. The ride is GREAT, lots better than stock.

    if you are not wheelin hard there is absolutely nothing wrong with a spacer and a rear block. I have the low range off road kit and love it. 1'' rear tapered black for driveline angle correction, 3'' top strut spacer, and a diff drop. stock ride, sweet stance.

    To be honest ive done a good amount of wheelin with this set up and everything is fine.

    also, OME lift is nice. I put mine on with some LR UCA's and love it. Great stance, nice solid ride. Quite a bit cheaper than the ULK and everything is pretty much the same with the exception of the adustability. (No adjustable front COs) .... but then, i don't see any reason I'd ever want to adjust my front end.

    Edit: damn I hate when I get tricked by reallllly old threads.:D
