    02 4x4. ToyTec Ultimate Lift
    I have an 02 4x4. I was originally thinking about the Fabtech 6 inch lift, but have decided to go smaller and cheaper. Has anyone experienced problems with the Toytech ultimate lift? would I need new wheels or is the Factory backspacing going to be ok?

    Thanks for any input

    I've heard good things about the toytec ultimate, the factory backspace will be fine on stock tires. if you go bigger you should shoot for 4" backspace, that will make the tires stick out causing less rubbing. **disclaimer** I am completely stock but i've read HOURS on lift kits for this truck.

    Heard good things about the lift. Search the site and you'll find reviews on it.

    If you want to run 285 tires you'll need new wheels with backspacing of 4.5 or less. Or get wheel spacers.

    Pro Comps 3" Lift is no where near the quality of Toytecs ULK IMO

    Thanks for the advice everyone. I had done some searching around and I think this will be the most practical option for my style of driving. Seems like the first gen. options are very limited compared to the second gen. Hopefully get the lift next week and add the new wheels and tires sometime after that. Most likely going to go with KM2 or Toyo Open country mounted on black ATX Mojave. Any other ideas out there?

    I have the Toytec Ultimate 3" and think it is a great kit. I installed the kit by myself with no problems at all. I had to do a little bit of trimming to run 285/65/18 Nitto Terra Grapplers on 18x9 Monsters (nothing major). The kit will ride a little bit rougher than stock, but I think that this is the best 3" kit route to go. I am looking into going with the RCD 4.5" kit now just because I want a little more lift to run 33x12.50 tires.
