    I am looking to change out my 5100 Bilstein adjustable shocks for something that sit a little more off the ground. Currently they are set at 1.5 in front and 1 inch w/ blocks in the back. I am running 18 inch wheels with 275. What would you suggest to go with? Looking too stay around $1000 budget.

    You can run lift spindles if you are 2wd and keep the 5100s. The rear would need a need at least an AAL but you would still have bro lean. A new leaf pack would bring it up but you might be over your budget.

    For 4wd you are limited to about 3 inches of lift without a drop bracket lift.

    Keep your 5100’s. Get the OME 887 coils and set the bilsteins to 0 that will give you 3” of lift in front. Get the Dakar leaf pack in back. That will be about $1000 and you’ll have a solid 3” lift.

    Ended up ordering 4 inch tough country kit. With alignment, parts and service cost around $1200

    I don't know a WHOLE lot about lifts but after 3 years of owning my taco and a lot of research This is a very good option.. OP will figure it out. I learned the hard way with junk country years ago..

    I haven’t fooled with lifts much that’s why I avoid the threads. I don’t want to post about something I don’t know much about.
    I’ve learned through much advice posted on this thread to avoid Rough Country lifts (or Junk Country as @whippersnapper02 refers to them).

    Nah, he was playin in the grass and our neighbor came over and asked about my truck. As soon as he asked "what kinda spacers did you use for your lift", Dug lost his shit.

    If he did that on spacers he’d have a seizure if someone asked if you had a rough country lift and k&n filter.
