I had the tuff country 3" lift before I got donahoes. It wasn't bad, but you pay for what you get. The ride was stiffer which I liked. The down travel I wasn't to happy with, but it was just a spacer lift. Off road the ground clearence was nice, but for IFS nothing compares to coilovers. Look at this thread if you are interested. http://www.ncttora.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3964. I don't have the blocks for the rear, but you don't want blocks anyway.

If money is an issue, the Tuff Country lift is OK. Here's a link for a Tuff Country write up www.parksoffroad.com A spacer is a spacer IMO! If money is not an issue, but you don't want to spend close to a couple grand, get the Old Man Emu set up. It's a good suspension that serves a dual purpose (lift and twoing/hauling capacity), and is not too expensive. These guys could help you out if you go that route www.trdparts4u.com

Good luck!
