    whats up guys? i want to put some BFG 285/75/16 KM2's on my 05 prerunner but i don't know what route to take. I cant choose between the bilstein 5100's or the pro comp lift kit. Here's the description for the pro comp lift i was looking at:

    Part Number: EXPK5075B
    Lift Height: 3 Inches
    Front Lift: Steering Correction: Rear Lift: Add-A-Leafs
    Shocks: Front/Rear ES9000 Shocks
    Shock Boots Not Included
    Max Tire Size: Wheel Size Range (Inches):Wheel Width Range (Inches):Min-Max Backspace (Inches)

    the max height im looking for is 3" ..something to make the truck look more aggressive.

    i'm new to all of this so ALL input is welcome and appreciated. THANKS! :D

    Fabtech Lift on top of 3 inch body lift. 34s trail grapplers on 18inch eagle alloys. KRFab Rear bumper, BHLM with HIDs, TRD seat covers, Hood scoop, N fab tire carrier, black valence, TRD intake, 40s Flowmasters, Foglight mod, best for last and thats my 4.56 gears, and much more too come.
    if you do the 5100s your definitely gonna have to trim your fenders to fit 285 km2s but thats about it. I couldnt help you with the procomp lift dont know much about that one. Good choice with the km2s tho thats definitely wat im getting next but 35s. Overall I think it the long run itll be better if you go with 5100s smoother ride, better quality, alot of people run this setup, and it the list keeps going.

    ProComp 3"lift, LR UCA's,Destination 285/70/17's, 1.25 spidertrax, K&N drop in, 2nd filter removed, Dynomax catback, Weathertech liners,Toyota bed mat, Silverstar Ultra's, reverse lights,Wet Oklee's,bedlights and other small stuff.
    I have the exact lift in question. My ride is firmer then stock but not rough. For what I paid, I'm satisfied. I don't go off road much but wanted better then spacers. The quality is ok. I know from other vehicals I've owned that Blisteen makes a better shock. Either way you'll be happy. Def get some uca's. I got the Light Racing and am very happy with them.
    Good luck.

    Be aware that the springs that come with that Pro Comp kit are VERY stiff.

    Not really recommended unless you're running a bumper and a winch.
