    I'm driving an 04 extended cab prerunner 6 lug and I'm planning on doin a lift soon. I know for sure I'm goin thru toytec and choosing the 3 in lift, I just don't know which one or which options. I definitely want to eventuality get the full OME kit, but that's down the road. So right now, I'm tryin to decide between these options:

    Front: new coils, new shocks and coils, 3 inch spacers

    Rear: new extended shocks are a given, so...
    Aal's or shackles?

    Please, any help and opinions. Thanks!

    F: shocks and coils
    R: AAL, those stock leafs could definitely use some support.

    zip ties and scotch tape (duct tape is too expensive)
    or new leaf packs.

    I'm guessing the green is good and the red is bad? :confused:
    I'd love to go with the Dakar pack but that's bookoo money

    To much to list...see sig for more...
    Rear leaf will be easy to install later down the line when money becomes available cause it doesn't require a spring compressor or alignment but I always tell everyone to save up and do it once.
