    Bilstein 6112/5160, 3 CB front shims, SPC UCA's, CB +3 rear Shackles, total 3/2 lift, Dif drop, CB Carrier bearing drop, Fortin Evo One remote start from Tech12volts PnP, AMP research Powersteps PnP, Vent shades, Tinted windows, Black/Red lined cupholder inserts, Proclip USA dash phone mount with Scosche Magic Mount wireless magnetic phone charger, Stock wheels/tires for now.
    Not sure if this belongs in general or suspension, feel free to move if needed.

    I just recently completed Bilstien 6112 maxed with spacers for 3in front lift and Coachbuilder +3 rear Shackles for 1.75in rear kift.

    About to drive 500miles to the beach next week.

    Can I change a tire in a roadside emergency with the stock Toyota jack stuff still, or do I need to get something else asap, and what is a cheap recommendation?

    I don't want to be caught short, literally lol.

    Thanks everyone!

    Just get some wood boards or blocks to allow the jack to reach. Without a boost it won't work.

    I carry a chunk of a 8" 4X4 board in my swing case.
    Even nailing a couple pieces 2X4s or 2X6s together would work..

    Knock on wood (get it?) I've never had to use it..

    The rear should not be a problem since the location where you put your jack should still be the same distance from the ground. The front might be a concern depending on where exactly you place your jack - I know some people have different preferences.
    As others have mentioned a piece of 2x6 would work.

    Thanks for the ideas everyone!

    I will grab some wood for now and look into that highlift jack plate as a better fit since I also 4x4 in the OBX beaches yearly.

    You guys rock!
