    I won't be wheeling my truck that often, lots of play in snow in winter however.

    Should I go with the 3" lift kit, or save my money for the Ultimate lift kit both from Toytec???

    Any and all advice accepted, thanks everyone.

    Anything worth doing is worth doing right. I will either be going with the Ultimate or full OME setup with leaf packs.

    To get your alignment back to where it needs to be, yes you will need new UCA's. But you don't "have" to. There's many people on here that have 3" lifts and run their stock UCA's with no issues.;)

    You don't need new UCAs, take it to a Toyota dealership and have them set it for a lifted truck. The new tacos have any of adjustment. I only replace UCAs on 4.5" or bigger.

    You realize you bumped a nearly 5 year old thread. Second, you can't go over 3 inches with 2nd gen Tacomas without doing a drop bracket. Third, it has pretty much general consensus is 2nd gens require UCAs to get full 3 in lift.
