    I know to be repetitive bc ive seen like one hundred threads about lifts but i just got a 2008 4 door prerunner and id like to fit 33x12.50x20s i dont want to spend $1000 on a lift. I had the toytec 3" spacer kit with aal on my 05 prerunner which was suitable for my needs. Anyother suggestions? 5100s? I thinki need a solid 3" of lift and from what ivebeen readingthe 5100s only give 2.5" aanyone running 33s with just 5100s up front??

    5100's with OME 885X coils plus spacer for driver side lean and AAL in the back, you can either set the billys at 0 or .85 IIRC

    IIRC with the billy set at 0 you get 2.6 something inches of lift, so some people set them at .85 to get the full 3 inches...

    Call DSM (888) 973-6967 they are really popular on this site, they have great customer service and will help you out alot. They also have the best prices and give discounts for TW members :D and yes if you have basic knowledge of how to do the install, you will have no problems at all :thumbsup:

    Edit: should be in the 400-500 range
