    Ok, I've been pondering on what to do. First off, I have an access cab 4x4 4cyl. 08. I want a lift But dont want to go 3" with stock 245s tires.I want to wait till they wear out then get 265/75s. then go 3". But I could go with the 5100s at 1.75 I all ready have tsb. So my question is, should I go ahead and get the 5100s on all 4 corners now then add coils, aal, and ucas when I get bigger tires? Or dont do any thing till I get bigger tires then get ome stuff? Or go with the 5100s and keep that set up since it's a 4 bangger ?:confused: I would like to hear y'alls opinions.

    Do it once and save yourself some cash in the long run.

    If you get some good coilovers you'll be able to adjust the amount of front lift anywhere from 0-3", so you can keep the coilovers low for now and crank them up after you get larger tires. One purchase, and you'll benefit from an improved ride right from day 1.

    Are you talking about the toytec coils or other? I might do that now. What coils do you recomend that I can adjust, and what shocks?

    It's hard to go wrong with Icon, Fox, and King, and those options are infinitely adjustable.

    What will work best for you all depends on what kind of wheeling you'll do. With that in mind, how do you plan on using your truck?

    Most of my off roading is at the deer lease very rocky terrain. This is why I want the extra clearance. I dont plan on doing any thing too extreme.
