    Hi guys,

    I know there has probably been a hundred threads about this, but I'd like to get some opinions about modifications for the truck (DCLB Magnetic grey TRD Sport)

    I pretty much have 2 options I'm thinking about going with, and your opinions are much appreciated. (Options are in no order based on preference) I like the look of the 4+ inches of lift on DCLB's, but not sure if I should spend that kind of money.

    Option 1:

    Camburg Spindles
    OME Dakar's
    33" BFG KM2's (or Duratracs)
    XD Addicts (or Ballistic Jesters)
    Ext. brake lines
    Bilstein 5125's (rear)

    Total cost: $2795 not including shipping

    I'd have the option down the road to add 5100s up front for more lift.

    Option 2:

    OME Complete kit
    Light Racing UCA's (or Built Right)
    33" BFG KM2's (or Duratracs)
    XD Addicts (Or ballistic Jesters)

    Total cost: $2538 not including shipping


    What do ya think?

    Option 1 without the block and keep the 5100's at stock height.

    Option 2 if you don't plan to upgrade later, I love the look of lil lifts personally, but if its not your thing and you'd want to upgrade later then start big and you'll save more money in the long run.

    Just wanted to bump this up...

    Option 1 would be updated to:

    Camburg spindles
    Rear 5125's
    ext. brake lines
    OME Dakar leaf pack
    BFG 33's

    Total cost would be $2795

    Option 2 would stay the same at the same price. The difference in price would be ~250... Any input appreciated!

    EDIT: OP has been edited also.

    You'll want to regear after installing the taller tires.

    Definitely, thanks for the suggestion... I've been researching gears and what all I would need. What would you suggest as a good est. as to how much I'd be spending on a regear on a Prerunner?

    Prerunner regear shouldn't be bad. Parts are cheap, labor is where the expense is.

    If you're handy, there are places that'll send you a complete 3rd member to drop into your truck. They ship stuff to you, you bolt it into your rear axle, and you ship them your old stuff. Core charge and all that, but it's an efficient option.

    Can't give you an estimate on cost, unfortunately. It's still on my to-do list. :eek:

    Option #1 you may need UCA's also. Talk to some people with that set up already. The spindles because the ride height can vary so much, you may not be able to get proper alignment with the stock.
    Just FYI. ;)
