Toytec 3" lift + 1.5" body lift (fender measurements)

I'm looking to upgrade my 3/1.5 Toytec leveling kit to the 3" Toytec Bilstein lift kit and was wondering if I will gain any additional lift in doing so? I have a 2004 v8 model, I realize that certain years have different fenders.

Current setup:
3/1.5 Toytec leveling kit + 1.5" RB body lift

Current fender measurements (ground to fender):
Front passenger: 39.25"
Front driver: 39.25"
Rear passenger: 40"
Rear driver: 39.5"

Future setup:
3" Toytec Bilstein lift kit + 1.5" RB body lift

Future fender measurements (ground to fender):
Front passenger: ?
Front driver: ?
Rear passenger: ?
Rear driver: ?

3" Lift W/ Bilstein 5100 Height Adj Coilovers FJ/4Runner

I will also be adding a new bumper in the future will the new coils help to handle the additional weight better than the leveling kit?

Thanks,

Depends on how many miles you have if you'll see improvement in fender length. If you're over about 100k then yeah you probably will cause your springs are probably starting to sag. Yes a suspension lift will help with an off-road bumper because they're stiffer than stock shocks and coils but it might sag just a tad. Not enough to make a difference though. I've got a shrockworks and toytec boss all the way around and there's a lot of space from fender to ground. Another thing that will help is bigger tires and going up a size in rim (17"-18") etc. hope that helps

YES, you will definitely see a boost in height. I went from a 3/2 spacer lift on my '05 with 95k miles to the Toytec Ultimate and gained an extra inch. Those spacer lifts actually only have a net gain of 2 to 2.5 inches (depending on the status of your coil springs). The new Toytec kit will give you a true 3 to 3.5 inches of lift as your coil springs are sagging to begin with. You should see at least a gain of one inch.

Thank you so much, now I just need to decide between the Ultimate or Boss setup.
