    Trying to decide the best way to level my truck. Do I go with Bilstein's on the front or go with the Toytec 3 inch lift. I am familiar with the Bilstein's but don't know much about the Toytec lifts so I have a few questions.

    How difficulty is it to install the lift? Or best shop in DFW to have this done at? (not 4WheelParts)
    What size tire can I go up to with the Toytec lift vs the Bilstein's?
    Ho bad with MPG suffer with the Toytec lift? Currently averaging 14.2 MPG

    With the Toytec, youll be getting a half inch more lift as the top setting on the 6112s is only 2.5 inches. That is what i am currently running and with a BMC, and standard plastic trimming i am running 35 x12.5 18s. As far as install goes, they will both take about the same amount of time. Being slightly mechanical @HornFrog and i, put his Kings on in less than 6 hours.

    I havent done a speedo recalibration so my miles are off therefore my MPGs are, as well. At best guess though i would say 11 or so.

    At the bottom of the Discount Tire calculator is a speedometer conversion. It uses your OE tire size and compares it with your new size to give you an approximate speed conversion at different speeds.

    I mean i havent done one on the truck. My miles on the truck arent right in comparison. Therefore i cant calculate properly.
