    Nice! Looks good. A bit cheaper then the toytec ultimate kit, But you get new UCA's in this one. The toytec kit you get the adjustable Coilovers that I got. But I like the fast that you get new UCA's. Nice choice!:)

    no...

    make friends with some lifted prerunners in your area and see up close and personal what your options are...

    if you plan to wheel that truck, your wheeling options and terrain are a full 180 degree difference from someone with a truck in the mid-west or back east...
