I had SAW co's on my 3rd gen 4runner and loved them and when it was time to lift the Tacoma the SAW's were my go to coilover. I really like the ride they offer. Much better than stock. Any of those coilovers you posted are a great choice and you cant go wrong with any.

Yeah thanks for the opinion man. I've done a ton of reading on these forums, i just cant figure out exactly what i need for my driving. By the way i'm only looking to lift the truck about 2 inches. I originally had my mind set on icons, but I've been reading that icons are stiff on the road, and kings would be better suited for a more street ride. I also saw where DSM can take some of the low speed dampening out of the icons and that will fix the problem. I just want to make sure that I get something I am going to be happy with before I spend $1,000 bucks.

I know its not one of youre options but I'm really happy with my foxes.

But my advice is to call Downsouth and have them setup whatever color you want to your specs.

Yeah I would go fox. I just haven't seen that many 1st Gen with them or write ups with them on 1st gens. Do you have any pics ?

By the way I appreciate all the replys.

no pics on the truck that I could find. Ill try to get some tomorrow. I had Fabtech 2.5 dirtlogics for years and was honestly happy with them, alittle stiff but not that bad (only cranked 1"). Then I decided to switch to foxes last year and it was a big improvement (cranked 2"). I beat on the truck pretty hard and they do well in the dunes. They also are softer on the road with less lean in corners.

The only problem with them was the ressi mounting. My bumper wouldn't allow them to be mounted were suppose to go. I removed the washer bottle and mounted them there. See more in my build.
