    After many hours of careful reading I thought I knew exactly what I wanted but after a visit to Four Wheel Parts in Riverside, and the salesguy's phonecall to ARB, I am back to research.

    What I want: 2-3" lift, leveling, 32" tires likely on stock rims, spare to match and it must fit in original location without rubbing. My goal was a combined 4-5" lift from suspension and larger tires.

    What I thought would work:

    OME front coilovers with light coils (no intent on adding heavy bumper or winch)
    OME Dakar leaf pack
    Either TC or Toytec UCAs
    BFG ATs in either 285/70R16 or 285/75R16

    However, according to the salesguy and ARB, this kit will raise the front 1.75" and the rear 2.75", adding 1" to the stock rake. ARB had no solution for leveling. It would seem to me that most people willing to install a replacement leaf pack would also want the rig level.

    I thought that numerous folk here had installed essentially what I outline above and ended up with a level rig. So what am I missing? With the basic plan I am pursuing, what are my options for ending up with a level truck? Or should I look in a different direction?

    Regards,

    Patrick

    For me it was 50/50. I bought an intake for my Ranger and I got it with no issue. Then I went for shocks and they gave me the wrong ones and it took forever to get the correct ones. I have read a lot of negative reviews here and other sites of them just being horrible at doing anything. Most of the people that work there are gnar Monster bros that don't have a clue what a truck is other than the front should be higher than the rear and that shocks are badass.

    Thanks for the feedback, I truly appreciate it. Your truck looks great - I would be happy with that.

    I'm still having trouble with the math. Here is a link to ARB's vehicle specific guide for Tacos. It shows 1.75" lift front, 2.75" rear with the lights coils and leaf pack. It lists 5mm spacers for first gen tacos, but no spacers for 2nd gen. Even with a 10mm spacer, their kit would increase factory rake.

    Perhaps my problem is that I'm relying on this PDF for a package instead of piecing it together. Other than this PDF, ARB's website was not very helpful. I was hoping to be near the end of my research and I guess that's not the case.

    Regards,

    Patrick

    Check out http://www.downsouthmotorsports.com also for the UCAs. I just ordered a set from them and they are on sale/group buy for 525 this month! They are also starting to sell OME stuff also. Just giving you another option and place to look. Wheelers, Toytec, and Downsouth are IMO the best places to get parts
