    RSG sliders, Yakima offgrid basket, Pro-Comp wheels, SOS Streamline bumper and skids, Warn VR EVO10S winch + Ultimate Sidewinder, Bilstein 6112 + 5100 + rear lift coils, Rigid Dually SS ditch lights w/Caliraised brackets and OEM style dash switch
    I would go with Bilstein out of those 2. Also check out Eibach and Dobinson.

    I put Bilstein 5100’s on my 2021 OFF Road. I kept the OEM springs and set the adjustable front shock clips for the .85” setting (next to bottom) and got 1” lift in front.

    I am very happy with the ride improvement and the significant reduction in nosedive when braking.

    I’ve attached a pic to show what this setup looks like.

    I am planning to add a new bumper, winch and full set of skids and will be upgrading the springs to accommodate the weight. The build will use Dobinsons springs front and rear and keep the Bilstein 5100’s. I will use Dobinson C59-302 front springs (2” lift with 110-150lbs extra weight) with the Bilstein adjustable shocks set to OEM height. Rear will get Dobinsons C59-599 rear springs (1” lift with stock weight).

    Bumper, skids and springs are all on order. I plan to continue running stock tire size with this set up…

    Sharing to provide a low cost, good quality, lift idea…

    Cheers,
    Bob’s

    I just ordered bilstein 6112s for the front of my incoming 22 ORP. I've got 275 Falkens on the way as well. Will advise once I get it all installed.

    I'm running 1" spacers at all 4 corners from Cornfed. I have a slimline bumper on order from SSO, and Iwill be installing it along with my Warn M8000 winch along with synthetic line.
    I expect to need a bit more in front to carry the weight, I'm thinking of doing the preload collar from Westcott, and will switch to a 2" rear spacer to level things.
    I don't want to ruin the ride, and I don't plan to add more constant weight than that.
    I'll see how it is after the bumper/winch and decide then.
    Best practice is to add the weight first then springs to carry it.
    I REALLY don't want to be over sprung!

    New to this forum. Just bought my daughter a 2011 4runner sr5 4wd. Im looking at leveling it and keeping 265/70/17 maybe 275. Any suggestions?

    Here is my '16 with a Rough Country leveling kit. Very basic lift but does provide me with enough clearance for the 275-75/17's on it. Not a bad $140 spent so I can get my wife used to the idea (she finally gave in) of going up a little higher. After the new year and when I return from deployment, I will be going with a Dobinsons kit, 3-3.5 front and 2 in the rear, along with some other goodies.

    To the OP, I would deffinetly go with the Bilstien kit. While RC makes pretty good products, the Bilstien kit is just a much better all-around than a standard spacer kit.

    Pinstripes, lots of em.
    Eibach Pro Truck Lift and/or Dobinsons over those listed.

    I have the Eibach Pro Truck Lift. It improved the handling on and off road of my 4Runner.
