    So I've got the money now for a suspension system and narrowed it to two. I've read through a ton of threads and that's how I got to these two choices.

    My use is mainly daily driver, occasional trail rider and hauler.

    I'll be adding Timbrens to either setup to save the leaf pack from the heavier hauls and a 1/4" spacer for taco lean. Will need to save for LR UCAs.

    Let me know which one you guys would pick or if there are others kits in the same price range.

    1. ToyTec Ultimate $1,149 - http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.ph...ategory_id=64&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=53

    2. OME NitroCharger $1,015 - http://www.autoanything.com/suspension-systems/73A5935A0A0.aspx or http://www.trdparts4u.com/Scripts/prodView.asp?idproduct=-8415 - Thanks mpleitez

    Personally I am leaning towards the Leaf Pack plus NitroChargers.

    It comes down to adjustability of toytec front coilovers vs beefier leafs & shocks with OME.

    Good point Steve. I'm thinking the leaf pack is a clincher, both should put me around 2 to 2.5" I believe.

    Followed your link. Trouble with the "auto anything" kit is it doesn't specify exactly what's different between "heavy" and "light" -- are they giving you 885 for heavy and 884 for light?? or 886 for heavy and 885 for light?? If you deal with Wheelers or another small shop suspension specialist, you'll get exactly what you intended.

    Reading this has helped me out, going to go with the OME. Emailed Wheelers, had an answer 24 hours later, can't beat that.

    I went ULK with Dakars and LR UCA's and am very happy with it all. LR UCA's are a must in areas with a lot of salting or sanding going on. I would plan on it for a "perfect" alignment!

    Good luck with your choice!

    Thanks everyone for the quick feedback. I'm shopping OME at Wheelers today.

    Wasn't planning on the UCAs at first but it seems like they'll be helpful to keep the stock ride. We'll be taking the truck to Moab and Cali several times a year... and if I can get it in the schedule maybe up to Yellowstone. So I want to keep it aligned and a good ride.

    Are UCAs really needed or should I wait and see first then spend the money later if needed?

    You need UCA's when you go over about 2 1/2" of lift up front , I would suggest you install them at the same time as the lift , you will save on labour if you are paying to get the lift installed , and it will save you a second alignment .

    I originally installed without UCA's.

    After six months, I've ordered some. It's not the off-roading that drove me to make the change -- it's the highway driving with zero caster.

    I vote OME check here I believe it is a bit cheaper http://www.trdparts4u.com/Scripts/prodView.asp?idproduct=-8415

    talk to Jacque and see what he can do he certainly hooked me up and saved me a bit more money than the online listed price.
