    I was looking at that kit today. 3" with 1.5 blocks in the back, also comes with drop diff in the kit. They wanted $600 installed if I let them do it. $350 purchased outright.

    It had steel spacers unlike some other kits.

    If a leveling kit is what you want I think its a good kit. The toytech is a little better priced for a similar kit i think it was $269 outright but you had to buy the drop diff seperately.

    good luck

    If you want to just level your truck I would highly recommend getting a set of Bilsteins the front are adjustable up to 2.5" I believe. You can get these for around 279 from DSM on eBay.

    Don't take it personal, everyone was just having some fun. I think you would find most everyone agrees that spacer lifts are not a good way to go. If you let us know how much you want to spend we could probably help you out. It ranges from a few hundred to well over 2 thousand. Are you looking for performance or looks? Look at Toyteclifts.com and try Downsouth motorsports as well, they will have just about everything you are looking for in every price range.
