    I've seen Toytec's, Revtek's, and the Ready Lift. All under $450. Is there others better then these for the same price?

    Is $450 your budget? Are you planning on off roading with your truck, or is it going to be a street queen?

    I have a toytec 3 inch spacer lift comes with everything and shippin for like 367. Its not to bad of a ride. As for the uca if u want to use the stock ones with bigger tires you will have to get aftermarket rims with a small backspacing to move ur tire away from the uca.

    Those two shops are dead wrong. It will wear your tires.
