    6" lift sitting on 20x10x-24 wrapped with 35 MTs
    Typical spacer lift. I have put two of these on for friends, everything was good quality and bolted up correctly.

    Make sure you have the truck lined up afterwards

    DITTO: Pretty decent looking spacer lift/level kit. Appears to have the Diff drop parts too.

    Personally, I would save for a full suspension lift. That's just me though.

    I agree, but then I would have to get married and have my wife save up mod money for me. :cookiemonster:

    As far as spacer lift is concerned, this one is as good as it goes, cheap and does what it's designed to do.

    I personally would stay away from spacers. I've seen enough posts reporting broken struts just going over a pot hole.
    Case in point: truxx 3/1, going over a pot hole. Go with Bilstein 5100 (or Pro Comp Pro Runner). They aren't that much more expensive and much more reliable.

    That's my plan. My truck already had the spacers. Spacer are OK to a degree. A lot of trucks run with them without any issues. I go off road a lot so dumping the spacer lift would be very prudent for me.

    Bilstein only makes the shocks/coil-overs. Bilstein makes height adjustable shocks, if that it what you are talking about. You have a lot of options with your 2WD version. Do you want to only level? Maybe lower? Some folks with 2WD turn their Tundra into a pre-runner which can do a lot of things a stock 4X4 can't do mainly because of major suspension upgrades and engine performance upgrades, Mickey
    Thompson Baja ATZ tires, for example. Let us know what you want to do. There are plenty of guys here from all experiences to help you. Try contacting Bilstein with your concerns too. :http://www.bilsteinus.com/
    It sounds like you want to get a major lift. If that's the case , bite the bullet and go pre-runner. Bad ass for sure. Will cost a few$$$.

    Bilsteins will work fine for 4x2 and 4x4. By the way, a popular option for a 4x2 is the spindle lift. From what I understand, it does not alter the suspension geometry at all and later on if you decide to go higher, you could just stack a coil-over set along with spindles.

    Unfortunately, for 4x4 guys, we don't have such an economical and sound option for lifting.

    What do you think about @Machodiver going the pre-runner route? Sounds like what he may be looking for.[​IMG]

    The pre-runner route will be awesome . . . but his wallet will become very much lighter, haha.

    Though I really like the pre runner, I agree with @chphilo My wallet is light as is. I just want to style it a bit.

    Just go with that Supreme Suspension lift. Your truck will look pretty cool. Price is right. Are you going to DIY? If you do , take a lot of pics to make it easier for our fellow 2WD guys here in case they want to do the same.

    Machodiver, I have 2wd also and I bought my 2.5 leveling kit from Supreme Suspensions and have no complaints. There are well priced and solid billett aluminum. You don't need the differential drop with 2wd. The kit leveled my truck up, but still left a slight rake which is good. I don't need the rear spacer in the back. Hope this helps

    Hey Macho, also look at Toy Tec's 3-1 spacer lift, solid! As a forum member you get a discount. There one of Tundra.Com vendors. With you not needing differential drop, that will save you about $30 + discount. Hope this helps

    If I had no spacer lift and wanted to do the spacer lift, I would go with ToyTec. ToyTec specializes in Toyota only.
