    i can only speak on 3" revtek and AAL lift, it was a ok lift when i had it, it rode stiff in the front and couldn't really tell what the rear felt like. I do some off roading and the spacer adds more load to the spring making it stiffer= rough ride. if your a mall crawler and don't take it off road its great for looks but if you do offroad and you want a soft/better ride get a suspension lift, re: toytec, kings, fox's for the front and the back i think a AAL would be just fine.

    I am by no means an expert on lifts but after reading a bunch of threads on here the spacer lifts are not a good idea especially if you are doing any kind of off roading even mild off roading. However if thats what you want by all means go and get it but I think there are better options out there for a little bit more money.

    Here is a link to another thread about spacer lifts that might help your decision. Also hopefully others who are way more experienced then I can chime in and give you some solid advice.

    Good luck with what you choose and looking forward to your build.:cheers:
