    I have a 1972 Fj40 and want a 3'' lift. Only a few companys out there make the complete 3'' kits and I wanted some help choosing one. If anybody knows drop a message please.

    well i can tell you this.
    a 3" lift can be acomplished by a 2 1/2" skyjacker lift with 1 1/2" shackles.or a 2 1/2" lift skackle in the rear.
    ive heard nothing but great things about the ride quality and flex of this system and i wont use anything else.plus the kit comes complete if you get it from the right place.but do like everyone else and use the 4" lift (skyjacker) and duetsch tech shocks and 33's or 35's and youll be happier than ever.skyjacker shocks suck their stiff and dont last.
    hope this helps :D

    I used to run OME 2.5 lift and 33" BFG and OME shackles, it was almost 3". Love the ride until I wanted bigger tires:
