    i am going to put a 3" lift on my 07 tacoma. i am torn between the cheaper tuff country lift and the more expensive revtek lift with diff. spacers and a few other goodies. can anyone help me decide which is better?

    Toytec is another option for around $240. They use billet aluminum for the spacers so they won't crack like the Revtek ones might. IIRC, the Revtek ones are some sort of plastic/polymer.

    Don't know anything about the Tuff Country one. HTH! :D

    does anybody recommend the 3" coil plate extension by toytec as opposed to the replacement 885 3" coils from toytec? (pro basic kit vs lift coil kit?)
    i just need to make sure i get a solid lift that won't destroy my ride and handling

    Yeah... i talked to a guy at toytec.... they and revtek are billet aluminum. i think i am going to go with the toytec 3" spacers and the add-a-leafs and the diff drop kit. thanks for the help i'll post pics when i get a chance.... it already looks sick with 285/50/20's which nobody said would fit..... but they do!

    no coils, just the front spacers and rear add-a-leafs, diff drop kit, axle shims.
    the toytec rep talked me out of new coils.... said they would be too stiff, and with only a 3" lift, the aluminum spacers wouldn't be an issue.
