    stock for now but plans for toytec 2.5 front lift
    ok guys the shops tells me this will work but want an informed word on this going to go with a Revtec 3" lift and some 285 70 17 Safari tsr... on stock rims.. will I need wheels spacers? I wish I had the money for toytec but I hope this will do for some mild to semi wild wheeling
    Thanks:eek:

    don't the revtek unless you are going for looks only. i had it before i got the rcd. the revtek rides really rough especially if you offroad.

    rcd is badass, but it's double the price of toytec

    if you want to go with 4.5 inches of lift then yes but if you want 2.5 inches then go with the billy 5100's.

    I was also thinking about skyjacker but, I think I am going to just wait until I can afford the toytec even though the RCD looked B.A>!!! but, for now I might just get a set of 265 70 17 and roll until I can $$$ the right lift instead of just going for the cheaper option
    :cool:

    the OME lift is a 3" lift that's decently priced, about 700 for parts

    So from this I will just suck it up and wait until I can do a decent lift I figure with the toytec or something else around 800 to 1200 will get me a better ride with a real dual purpose truck that will be better on and off road I will just have to wait... thanks everyone

    good call. much better to do it right the first time rather than rush and do something you're gonna end up hating
