    I have been looking at lifts for the past 5 months and now i im just confused on what one to get. I have this stupid 3" spacer lift sitting in my room that i do not want to use. Now i am looking at the 3" ome lift, pro comp 3" lift, or saving and waiting until this summer for some icons. I really dont want to wait to lift my truck but if i have to i will. Thats all i hear about the affordable pro comp lift is that its crap. but on the other hand i have spoke to 2 people who have the pro comp lift and they so no problems so far. Then there is the ome lift which is affordable and its suppose to be durable. Or i can waitttt until summer and put on some icons. The only thing i like about the pro comp lift besides that its affordable is that it lift the back a full 3"s. All the other kits are usually 1 1/2 inches or 2. Help me make up my mind.

    you can always add more to the rear with other lifts. I added an inch using lift shackles from toytec. and lifting the rear a full 3 inches wont leave your truck level. it will be tail high

    Right now im leaning towards the ome kit. I originally wanted to install it myself. But this kit has a diff drop kit included. Is that hard to install does anyone have a tutorial on how to install?

    are you going to be offroading any? either way the ome complete lift kit is your best bet! a diff drop is very easy to install. im sure there is a write up for it somewhere on here
