Ok first off let me just say that I hated making this thread because there is about a billion of them, and trust me I have searched and read and researched for months. It is now getting down to the wire where I will have to make up my mind and as money doesn't exactly appear in large quantities to me I want to be sure about my purchase. I get home from this deployment within the next 2 months which means I should be ordering all the parts within the next month.
Budget: I will say an even $2000 but if I can stay under it without a loss in performance that would be best. I will be doing the install myself for the most part so the $2000 really is for parts alone.
I have a 2008 TRD Off-road Double Cab, it has a ARB bumper, with a wench eventually to be purchased and put on.
I want a good 2.5 to 3 inch lift with great performance.
This is my daily driver, also a part time weekend trail blazer. I tow a 19' wake boarding boat during the summer, but not enough to justify any change for extra towing performance.
My driving style really is fast, I have a led foot. When I do drive off road, its really just a little rock crawling with quite a bit of fast driving rough terrain.
Ok now that I think I have covered my basis on what I am looking for, I have already decided on Total Chaos UCA's. They seem to be hands down the most recommended UCA's out there.
Up to this point I have been pretty set on OME 886 kit, with the full Daker leafs in the rear. (886 because of the double cab weight and ARB bumper)
So, here I lay out the real question: Is OME the right choice for what I am looking for, or should I turn my attention toward FOX or another higher end Brand? (I say higher end because of normal reputation through out the off-road world) If that is the case, Should I be waiting a bit longer and saving so that I can put a little more money toward something better? Or is the extra money not going to impress me so much more than its worth spending.
Alright thanks people. And again sorry that there is another damn thread on Tacoma world titled which suspension blah blah.
Here is how the Truck sits currently, with something extra to make this thread actually better than others with the same theme haha
