hello i was looking at getting a 3'' kit for my 05 Tacoma and was thinking about the Tuff Country kit with add-a-leaf and strut spacers, but then when i went to order the kit the guy recommended the Skyjacker new strut lift wit the complete strut replacement without the spacers has anyone got any opinions on what would be the better kit? just for look wise ??thanks
would i get the same lift with the strut replacement ?

the coil overs are the red ones :thumbsup:
your looking at the OME coils for 299

I would recommend Icon's all around, with Deaver leaf packs in the rear! :thumbsup:

+1

I had a spacer kit for 3 years and it rode like crap. Recently upgraded to a similar setup Icons in front w TC UCA's and in the back I did OME Dakar leafs w/ Bilstein 5100's and the ride is awesome. If you want good ride quality do it right the first time so that way it doesn't cost you extra down the road.

the best lift is the one that best fits your needs.

if you will be doing a lot of wheeling and/or would like to get the most function out of what you have then i agree with toku & oakley that this would definitely be the best to get...

...that is probably one of the most expensive 3" lifts, but its the lift i may be installing on mine. i would also suggest a front differential drop kit and extended stainless brake lines. Toytec makes both of those as well as a lot of other lift accessories you need for a well functioning lift.


If you will mainly be driving on the streets with occasional light wheeling then you are probably better off spending less. this is a great substitute...
