    Just got the toytec boss front coilovers with the toytec long travel rear shocks, and shackles at top setting. Just ordered nitto tires 295/70/18 and method standard rims 18x9 +18 mm offset. Will be here Wednesday
    Ride is awesome!! I highly reccomend these coilovers

    Nice. Would you say it's day/night difference from the stock on the streets? More comfy ride?

    That looks fantastic! How much lift did that give you? Got the same truck, curious about suspension options. Can you tell much difference in ride over stock?

    I haven't measured but the ride is MUCH better over stock. I was a bit skeptical when I read other people's post when they bragged about how much better the ride is with the boss kit. But now I know what they are talking about. It's definitely much smoother going over bumps. The UCA's are a little louder but not crazy loud where it's a nuisance. I'll measure when I get back home and let y'all know.

    Ok I'm home and I measured. My mechanic did NOT make any adjustments to the coilovers this is how they came. And my rear shackles are at top setting. Before the lift my front end sat exactly at 22". Now I'm at 25.50". I didn't measure the rear before the lift but now I'm at 26". So .50" of rake. Here are pictures
    (Measurements are from center of hub)

    And I promise I do not work for toytec or I did not receive anything free. I paid 2 grand just for parts. Had I done it again I would have ordered the SPC uca's. But I went balls deep in my wallet. F it. If you don't wanna spend 3 or 4 g's on fox or icon I would not hesitate to get these.

    @ToyTec Lifts or anyone else,
    Will I mess anything up if I drive my truck without carrier bearing spacer? I ordered one but it won't be in for another week. And I'm expierencing light vibration when I accelerate from a stop.

    Looks great! And no, you won't mess anything up. I went 6 months with a 3" spacer lift without a CB drop and 2 months with my BOSS kit set at the preset height of 3". You'll be fine and it's such an easy install. Just crawl under and keep the driveline steady with some jack stands, remove bolts, install CB drop, put bolts back on and drive on!

    I put some loctite blue (the non permanent one) just as a precaution.

    Looks good! Good choice on UCAs too! If you're gonna spend the money might as well go with uniballs. A little more maintenance but totally worth it!

    Truck looks good, I've been debating about the toytec boss kit or bilstien setup, what part of Texas are you from.

    I would honestly go toytec. I've driven both and prefer the toytec. Absorbs bumps better it feels like. And I don't work for toytec and they don't give me anything for free. Just my honest opinion

    I went with method nv 18x9 with +25mm offset. Tires I went with the nitto ridge grapplers 295/70/18. Minor running but I think an alignment will fix that issue. As far as road noise, there is none. For as aggressive as this tire is I figured there would be some. But there is no change from the stock Michelin that came with the truck.

    Thanks. The only downside to leveling out a truck is having that bro lean when u haul/tow something. But I hear the ladies like the bro lean?
