    No kidding? that's awesome, I don't think I drove through Jacksboro, but I remember seeing signs for the exit that takes you there. I drive Harper>Doss>Brady>Brownwood>Breckenridge>Graham>Wichita falls

    Lots of backroads, I try and avoid the big hwys

    Is anybody selling some UCAs? I might need some for my lift. The shop that is installing them says they dont need them, and that they can get the alignment done right without them, but only thanks to TW do I think I should get them. So...anybody selling some?

    Would these tundra ones work? https://www.ebay.com/i/292847313880?chn=ps Im only asking because some AALs work for both trucks...

    How do these Tuff Country ones fair? Ive heard some "elitist" type of comments about this brand's lift kits

    People swear by the SPC UCA's but I've read they're a bit tricky to adjust. The same people say if you can get the techs to read the instructions and do it correctly, you can get a really good alignment done. I've also read some good reviews about Light Racing.

    I can speak for Camburg, they were alright. Did the job and the MOOG balljoints would be cheap and easy to replace. I get much better travel, a better ride, and much better alignments done with the TC UCA's but they are pricey.

    Total Chaos $800
    Camburg $600
    Light Racing $550
    SPC $550 (I've seen as low as $450)

    If you plan to go off-road I'd stay away from a spacer lift and go.with a coilover

    But if your building a mall crawler then go right ahead with spacer lift

    If you plan to drive work and home and not hit any trails then a spacer lift works fine

    A stock truck is suppossed to get 3" with the 888s I got, but I have that SOS slim bumper that will probably bring it down a bit.
