And some other crap
    I'm wantng to get rid of my Revtek at some point, maybe this year and want to replace it with coilovers. The more you crank up coilovers the crappy'er the ride gets. So out of these, which might give the most decent ride quality offroad at 3"?

    I think you left out probably the most popular and cost effective one...ome set-up. Every raves about this set up, for ride quality on and off road. I think i am leaning this way when I decide to upgrade. You can get a full 3" with the top plate spacers, probably about 2.5" without. The only downside is that they are not adjustable like some of the others you mentioned.

    2.5, 2.0, etc. refers to the diameter, not the height or travel of the shock.

    I have the Toytec COs with the Eibach 700lb springs due to my front bumper and winch. They are a little stiff, but it rides great! :D

    I used Toytec's Ultimate lift kit and had them cranked up almost to the max. I also had LR UCA's on at the time as well. The ride was great, but I started to blow CV boots because of the angle. Therefore I took everything off and went with a 4.5" RCD kit. I have to say that with RCD's kit the ride got even better and the handling was better than stock. I have pics in my build page of the CV axels with the Toytec kit and the RCD kit. Check out how much of a difference there is. The moral of this is, if you're going to crank up a CO to a full 3" or more, keep an eye on your CV boots.
