    Ok so here's the situation. I am about to order my lift. I have enough money to either get the lift and do the group buy on the LR UCAs. Or I can get the lift, get a Hi-lift jack, and get a set of weld on sliders and keep stock UCAs for awhile. Just wanting another opinion. I think I can get more for my money with option 2 and I would like to have the sliders for the gulches meet in May. So let hear what you guys think.

    Yeah it's a 3" toytec. I had a 3" on my 07 and left stock UCAs on and it was fine so I figured it would be ok for this too I will get them in the future but I thought more for my money at this moment in time.

    then you can see if you'll be wheeling hard enough to need sliders and the hi-lift later

    "slight" tire wear? Your outside tread is 4/32 less than the inside! :p

    option 2, rocker panels are hard to replace-fix, and hi lift's come in handy if u are gonna wheel it, if its a dd, or mall crawler go with the uca for a better ride, tire wear, and corect alignment..kinda depends on what u are gonna do with it
