    I've been looking around and i cant really find any complete lift kits that really are catching my eye and i dont know enough to create my own. I wouldnt want to spend anymore than $1200 but from what ive been looking at making your own setup is the best bet, any suggestions?

    Check out toyteclifts.com. A bunch of us bought lifts from there. They have complete kits or you can build your own.

    Toytec is what ive really been looking at. i heard complaints about the ultimate lift kit and lift kits in general, i just want to be able to put bigger tires on, be comfortable and do some offroading but nothing crazy

    I have the OME kit with the Dakars and the LR UCA's , I'm very happy with it .

    There are lots if guys on here that have the Toytec ULK and are very happy with it too , I just don't have any experience with it .

    From what ive seen everyone is all about the total chaos lifts but for one, i dont see a price so im automatically turned off and im not a hardcore offroader so i see no point in it. i dont really know anything about suspension so im having a friend of mine help me install it, just looking for the best bang for my buck and the ome kit looks to be it!

    I personally have the Toytec ULK. I love it! No complaints at all.

    The Bilstein uses an Eibach coil plus the .85" setting to get lift. I believe the Eibach only lifts 1.8XX" so you would still need a small top plate spacer (10mm) to gain the full 3". There are a lot of members that run that combo also with no complaints or issues.
