    Trying to decide which 3" lift to go with. Was thinking about Revtek. Just looking for thoughts and opinions on this brand or another brand. I plan to go off roading every once in awhile and looking for a brand that will still give me a smooth ride. Also, are there any other mods that I may need on top of getting the lift? Not looking to go crazy on the money though.

    I have the Revtek and I really like it, it is a bit stiffer than stock though. If you are dead set on ride quality you should look into something like the toytec's..

    What was the gain of adding the 5100's? I'm assuming you kept them at the lowest setting?

    I see you are in AQB, I lived there before joining the Army and coming to WA. I got out and stayed here. How you like it there?

    Personally, I would never go this route again. I installed the Revtek kit on my truck about 8 months ago. Ever since the ride has been horrible. Yesterday I took the lift off and couldn't be happier, even though my truck is 3 inches lower to the ground.

    If I could go back and do it all again, I would have saved the money and invested in a good pair of OEM struts or some coil-overs.

    I'd go with the Bilstein 5100s, not much more $ and much smoother, quality
