I am looking at getting a little bit of lift out of my truck in a pretty economical way and thought the truxxx 3 + 1 kit looked pretty nice and affordable, and it says lets you clear 33's no rub.
anyone have any experience with these? also what are the advantages of them offering it with a 1" or 2" rear block option?
Thanks guys

you will be able to fit a 33" with a level kit and without blocks

Its just the run of the mill torsion key kit with blocks... You don't need the blocks either but if you crank them keys up you will need them to level it better. Do a vendor request on here and see what are vendors will do for you.

so you dont think that the truxxx kit is any better than the others offered? i thought that it may sit my truck a little taller being that its kind of a middle ground from a regular 2" level and a 4" suspension, although correct me if i am mistaken, im working on limited knowledge here :)

You pay for what you get, I would say you have to define "economical" because the concept behind torsion keys are just stronger and re indexed keys to allow the torsion bars to be cranked more putting more stress on the torsion bars, than what is ment. If it is leveling you want the cognito makes a good kit, it is like 400 bucks but I believe its a spindle lift... Keys may be economical at the time but they are known to put stress on front end parts which I had keys took them off, they made a horrible ride and I went through a few ball joints so it turned out to be not so economical... If all you want is to fit 33's I would crank the bars a little bit and trim, or buy the Cognito kit

im not entirely worried about the tire size, i just want to make my truck sit a little higher than stock. i want it to look a little bigger but not get a 4" lift mainly because it just isnt in my budget right now. i have looked into the cognito leveling kit a little

its a bit steep at 490, or 700 for the kit with the bracing, but after reading norcals thread on the cognito kit it does seem worthwhile. now i need to find out if there is a spermbank around here anywhere so i can get some extra income :rof
