    I've got a 3" RC kit on my 98. It consists of blocks that go under the leaf springs and a spring compressing spacer for the front coils.....It will "roughen" the ride though.

    Don't waste your money. Billy's and an AAL is your best bang for the buck.

    what year is your truck? I hate when people ask about their trucks and dont have any info on it:rolleyes:

    Edit: I just looked at the site and see its only for 1st gens. Ive seen these kits in person and they seem pretty cheaply made. I had a spacer lift at first and it was one solid piece of billet. these are a weird machined piece of metal.

    Sorry I left out some info. My truck is a 2009 double cab 4x4. As of now im not planning to do any off roading. I live in North Carolina and we have several dirt roads that ill be driving on. Im just looking for something that will give me a 3 inch lift to improve the look of my truck for the best price and is a quality product. I dont and wont buy anything cheap. I hate cheap products. Im new to this whole truck thing so my knowledge on lifts, suspension and 4wd is very limited. I was told about rough county from a friend and was just following up on it.

    Would I be best to go with one of these?

    I have the exact same truck. And yes, it would be better to go with bolt on coilovers. The rides a lot better and they just bolt on so, they're plug and play. Whereas you need a spring compresser to put the spacer in for the rough country. I have a rough country 3" lift for my truck and wish i would've gone with the toytec lift instead.
