    I plan on ordering my lift kit today and I've been toying between the OME lift kit from toytec and the ultimate lift kit with Radflow coilovers since it's on sale.
    What would you suggest? Is the extra $450 for the ultimate lift kit worth it?

    A body lift and some bigger tires will give you the same amount of lift.

    I think you have to add a top plate spacer to the OME kit to get a full 3"

    I was going to go with the Icons that were on sale but after much debate and research I've decided that the OME fits my needs fine and I can get it with Dakars in the rear for right at $1k. Depends on what your plans are but I think you'll be happy either way. I don't need the adjust-ability so I'm going OME.

    Now I'm thinking either the pro comp kit or the OME kit. I don't really offroad so really i'm just looking for on road ride quality and the lower price of the procomp appeals to me. Is there anything else I will need with my kit? Like extended break lines etc?

    Eibach coils. 5100's all around. AAL. WickedFlow
    Go OME. Or bilstein 5100's on all four corners. With eibach springs up front. Set your adjustable 5100's up front to .85. You'll end up around 2.5 inches up front. Then throw on a 2 inch AAL.

    Very good ride quality for the daily driver.

    I have 5100's on all 4 corners and the ride is better than stock but still rough. If i won the lottery, or had more money, i'd go with the OME kit-cheap and reliable

    If you want ride quality stay stock.. Suspension lift = stiffer ride due to AAL, block, spacer, stiffer springs, or however you achieve lift. Soft rides are for cars.

    and there's Total Chaos. I'm sure there's others out there but some are long travel which are different than stock. Most people run Total Chaos..

    I have an OME kit with Light Racing UCAs. The UCAs are great for street use, but if you plan on offroading, go Total Chaos, you get what you pay for, and they're only about $200 more.

    So last night i drove my buddy's truck with the procomp lift and it was exactally what I wanted. Is there anything extra i'll need to complete my lift? Other than UCAs. Also, what type of specialty tools will be needed to install the lift? i have the essentials like sockets, jackstands, jack, etc.

    Awesome it says that it includes all of that. One last question.... It came with an aal but I have the leaf tsb so it won't be level. Can I take off my 4th leaf from the tsb and then put on their aal for the right amount of lift?

    The 885's on prerunners gives 3" lift after they settle.
