    Enough modifications to piss the wife off!!

    The 4/4.5" kits look good with 33's. And if you are towing alot, the 4" might work out better. Not sure about the 4" kit set up but the 6" kits use a block & an add-a-leaf to achieve the rear lift......which will sag eventually if you're towing major pounds. Add-a-leaf just can't hold up to heavy weight over time.

    OP, newbie questions like this will get you a lot of grief and little read help. It is helpful to be specific about what you want. What you will be doing with your truck (off roading, mall crawling, etc.). What is your current set up. How much money do you have to spend. Do at least a little research before you ask for others opinions because you will get a whole mess of different answers that probably won't help.

    BTW, sorry to hear you're at Ft. Lost in the Woods. I've suffered in that place in a past life. Good luck. :)

    I hear what your saying. The truck will be for looks, I will not be offroading it. Just some camping trips, I will be doing some towing with it as well. The truck is the stock trd off road. The Wood isn't TOOOO bad, I have been in worse areas....LOL. You in the service?

    Go with the bds 6 inch lift comes with better coilovers and it doesn't look that bad with 33s.

    If you just want looks go with a big lift. They "look cool". Not in the service but worked with the Chem school at the Wood helping them with chemical and biological warfare detection.

    the RCD lift is a nice option i think, then you can add a proper leaf pack to the rear like the all pro expo which gives about 4 inches, nice level truck with slight rake that can still hold some weight in the back and tow without sagging and riding like junk. not too tall for 33's at this height. if i were to do it all over again this is how i would do it.

    If i had to do over again, I would not get any DB of any sorts. I guess people have to make the purchase them self to relize that the DB lift are worthless.

    have you experienced issues with your DB lift? good thing my full OME lift is less than a yr old and i don't have to do it again but am curious to why. i understand what these lifts consist of and the shortcomings. is it because you wheel your truck that you would rather not do this lift again?

    well first of all You do not gain any wheel travel when you put these lift on. You lowering everything to Stuff 35's tires. Yes i wheel my truck my truck. If you do light off roading or no wheeling this lift is great because it makes the truck look bitchen. But if you need to be beast off road it has it short comming because their's no travel and stiff as hell.

    I will not be offroading with this truck, I have a jeep for that, I am just looking for the look, but still want it to ride well. A full coilover setup is crazy expensive, thats why I was interested in the RCD kit, I have had experience with Bilsteins on my jeep and they are great.
