Going to purchase my lift. Anything I am missing. Opinions welcomed.

I am going to go with these tires on my stock rims:


http://www.tirebuyer.com/tirebuyerwi...0255%2085%2016


With this lift:
http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.php...mart&Itemid=72


Is there anything else I need or should buy to complete it? I am thinking upper control arms, but if I purchased this lift:
http://www.trdparts4u.com/scripts/pr...dproduct=-8414

Wouldnt the struts reduced sway while driving and negate my need for a UCA? Im a noob hence I dont really know what I am talking about. Thanks!

Superwhitetaco is selling the OME kit. You might be able to save some money. Search this "FS: OME Lift Kit"

Why the 886 coils ?

Are you planning on an aftermarket steel bumper and winch ?

The OEM UCAs are limited when it comes to alignment adjustability. It doesn't have to do with stability. Also, I doubt you will want the 886 coils unless as mentioned above you plan on running a big front steel bumper with a winch.

I am not planning on a winch or bumper. I just want the extra load carrying capacity and I understand the ride with the 886s is just a little stiffer. I am going to keep the stock rims but go with 33 km2s. Do I have the correct dimensions?

That's dumb

No steel bumper , no winch , no need for 886 , you'll be fine with the 885's and you won't ride like you have Flintsone wheels

Haha fair enough. Any recommendations on tires if I am going to keep the stock wheels?

the price for your lift is pretty low. you are probably missing something. check out this website. that's what i'm planning to go with.http://www.wheelersoffroad.com/05upometaco.htm the total price for this set up is $1069 compared to what you're going to get and yes i'm going with 886's since i have an arb bumper on mine.

The Dakars are a replacement leaf pack , the other option is just an additional leaf you add to your stock springs

what's the pros and cons between the two? is it just that you can put more weight in your bed. I have a 2011 taco, so my rear spring are brand new. I wouldn't need the dakar set up? I also notice the other kit doesn't have the drive line bearing drop kit (carrier drop)

The Dakars provide 2 3/4" of lift over US stock height

You can buy the CB drop seperately , the OME fitting kit is FK29
