    Ok, I am sure some of you have seen my thread of what I should do with my $500. Well I ended up having a bit more money available ($900). I was looking at doing a UCA upgrade and then started to look at doing a UCA and Toytec coil over upgrade. Keep in mind I all ready have the adjustable 5100's on my truck. I also thought about doing a skids upgrade. I decided to put this poll up to see what what some of the TW folks would do. Thanks!!

    exhaust system with headers since it looks like you already have a modified suspension

    snyper since you allready have some lift I would do full bub builts. Then again maybe I would go with TCs or coilovers. Thats why I'm gonna do the same poll in about a month I have just about 3000$ to play with and I can't figure out what suspension to buy.

    I skimmed the post and didn't see anyone claim it, but if you get coilovers from toytec and get rid of your blistein adjustables..... I'll take em'. That is I will buy them from you, depending on what you end up deciding on.:D

    Wish I could help you man, but I would be getting the Toytec CO kit for $430. I use my existing 5100's and turn them into coil overs.

    On a side note, I still can't make up my mind as to what I want to do. I had started leaning toward the Total Chaos UCAs, but now am back thinking about the Toytec/LR upgrade. If I do the Total Chaos upgrade I would have enough money to get a Scangauge II with blend mount. If I do the Toytec CO/LR upgrade I am no money left. This sucks:frusty:

    UPDATE: Well I worked on the truck this weekend and got everything installed. I also got the truck aligned, which I must say I am a little unhappy with. The shop used the Hunter laser table to align my truck. My caster and toe are fine, but my camber is off. I should add that everything is within spec. I watched the tech work on it for like two hours straight, but still could not get the Camber where he wanted it though. With the added camber in the right side the truck pulls to the right a bit which is very annoying. Here are my numbers:
