just a reminder of what lifting your truck means with this kit.

the spring rates are just over 720 pounds! i trust your front end will not sag idk what bumper/ winch combo you run 720 is a lot on any tacoma. their customer service is terrible, so don't expect much in that dept. as a matter of fact don't expect anything

they sold me this lift for my regular cab and its was not even meant for any 4cyl ever! i firmly believe they could not find their ass with both hands over at 4wp or pro comp for that matter.

if you are lifting 3 inches look into ome they are a quality tough well engineered lift with people who actually off road behind them. plus their customer service from what i hear is phenomenal.

toyotec is pretty nice idk much about them but, a lot of folks run that set-up on here and they seem to like it a lot.

and on a side note even with the correct model tacoma "V6 double cab" you will still more than likely have a good bit over three inches of lift. take mine for instance i received 4.75 inches of lift... and many others have almost all reported well over three into 4's. i'm going to assume you know why thats bad all around.

plus with that high of a spring rate it will ride stiff as shit unless you do one of two things remove the sway bar this helps. or chose to run a "heavy plate steel bumper w, winch" that would help as well.

not trying to rain on anyones parade here just saying.
thanks for the input! do you think it would ride a little better than yours, with the extra weight of my 6 cyl VS your 4cyl?

I have the procomp kit, on my 09 double cab v6. It rides nice and handles bumps well. I removed my sway bar and added camburg uca's and ended up with about 3.75 inches of lift in the front and about 2 in the rear. It sits level. Very happy with product.

3.75 inches is still a little high brother my truck looks the part as does yours i bet but, my truck is missing down travel as is yours the rear will articulate just fine even on my regular cab but the front is where things reveal them selves about this kit.

to answer your question yes it will most likely ride a little better than mine but, consider what feed back your getting here ome and toyotec make nice well thought out lift systems. they can tailor spring rates to your truck and have you in a nice quality set-up. this is what people are recommending with the exception of a few guy's chiming in here and there about pro comp and other brands.

the pro comp on the other hand you will more than likely have a very stiff ride. i sure a fuck do and my sway bar is gone as well. this is subjective but, true non the less just due to the spring rates. the loss of down travel can negatively effect on road performance and off road performance as well and the likely hood of going well over three inches is not advised with out a drop bracket to get your front axles in line. if you ever plan on wheeling this truck this will become much more of a concern and a pain seeing as how you will be missing valuable down travel. this is what keeps your tires on the ground and provides traction. the es9000 shocks that come with the kit are 3 inch shocks when you over extend them you shorten their life span and are putting them at higher risk of failing. they will also top out over bumps be it large or small depending on how high the truck goes.

there is a perfect mix you should strike between ground clearance drivability and performance this kit fails in most every aspect for me it's not what i expected it to be thats for sure. ome and toyotec have a great rep for making very nice lifts for the money the choice should be clear

if you still want the pro comp kit also take into account that a bumper and winch would be correct even with a V6 and it being an extended cab. correct as in the proper amount of weight so that the coils are preloaded in such a way that they are ready to flex and not be so damned stiff.

ask around about spring rates. mention a 730 pound spring rate to some other guy's on here and they will tell you it's alot even with armor and a winch loaded plate steel bumper.

imho the money saved by going with the pro comp kit will not out way the better quality, handling or ride on or off and durability of a ome or toyotec lift period that is reflected in the price. the decision to lift your truck is a big one you are completely changing the way your truck moves down the road. these things where engineered by toyota to be a certain way then you just go and throw some not very well thought out kit with way to much height and your opening your door to let gremlins in

if one thing can be said about ome and arb in particular is engineering prowess and the tendency to go over board with making sure something is as close to being perfect as possible before they think about releasing it for sale to consumers.

take for instance the rear bumper for 2nd gen tacomas christ they had a working prototype last year and then scraped it because it was not perfect then a year later they are still testing in australia before even sending it to the states to be gone over again! thats the kind of company i want engineering my lift not people who can't even sell you the correct part.

sorry for the long post but, good info makes for a smart purchase i hope this helps someone debating these lifts.

Yes, I installed this lift october of 2011. I have had excellent luck with this lift, and it is the best bang for the buck. I have put just over 20k on this lift and had no problems. I removed my sway bar when I installed the lift, and it rides, drives, and handles well. Strongly recommend it.

A lot of hans problems was he put it on a truck that it wasnt designed for. the springs are rated at 720lbs, I do have the double back long bed, V6, so it is a heavier truck, his was single cab 4 cyl.

Thanks for the info, sorry I didn't see it earlier. Did you run aftermarket UCA's with that set up? Gain any travel with the UCA's if you did, up or down? What was your lift measurments? I see you have sold the red truck with the lift, you certainly have had a lot of Toyota's, cool.

I was in the same boat a few weeks ago. I ended up buying the pro comp lift mainly because of price and the good things I heard from other guys with DBC long beds. I should be tossing it on the truck next week and I'll be sure to post some pictures!
