I am a big fan of my RC 3". It has worked well in all climates and conditions I have put it through. I will be getting a set of 5100's for the front in the near future though, since the front is still a little lower than the rear.

So I am still not totally clear here. I have 5100s on the front of mine. Is this RC spacer lift simple an add-a-spacer additional lift? Or is this aside from the 5100s? My plan is to add some Toytec coils to the rear and be done for a while, but if spacers will gave me a little more lift for cheaper, maybe I should do that instead?

Scott, I had the RC 3" lift before my Icon setup. The kit was a spacer in the front that bolts onto the existing set up. In the back, it was new shocks and springs. In the end, it lifted and levelled the truck. A great set up for the cost!

Scott, correct me if I am wrong, but the bilstein 5100's are adjustable replacements for the front. Those can give you a little lift/leveling for the front. If you are stock in the rear you would be set up pretty well if you added the RC 3" all around.

I am currently running the stock TRD bilsteins up front with the the RC 3" spacers and the RC springs and shocks in the rear and I am nose down about 3/4 inch =/-. I have been contemplating the 5100's up front to finish my leveling.

You are correct. I have them in position 3 of 4 and it gave me about 2.5" up front. My plan was to do coils in the rear and pump the front to position 4.

That should lift and level pretty nicely.

i am thinking about adding a little lift (2.5-3 inches) where did you get your kit from?

it would be a great op for a wrenching day.

Which kit are you thinking about? The Rough Country lift you can get directly from them. Metal tech, Toytec, etc, etc will sell the other kits (ICON, etc).

From everything Ive heard (and read), Rough Country will be the best for the buck. ICONS start around 1K I think.

If you are doing RC, I would go direct. Here is a link... you can go the spacer route or the coils/shocks in the back route. I did the 2nd option ($250); spacers up front (using your current shocks) and shocks and coils in the rear. It was good for the money. And, if you get some help installing, it will be much cheaper as well.

I got mine new but previously purchased in the blue room. Put it on myself in about 6 hours on a duty night.
