A question: I have decided to go with the OME kit. In the future I have designs on and ARB or similar front bumper. Should I just go ahead and get the 886's now, and if so what adjustments do I need to make to the back, if any? (Also, I do plan on adding air bags in back-also in the future, so take that into consideration, but I need the truck to drive well and look good prior to ARB and or/air bags, because you never know, the future can be a long time)

If you are going to get the ARB bumper I would go right ahead and get the 886 coils. Without the bumper it will be a little rough but with the bumper it will be just right.

As for the rear hopefully someone with more knowledge can chime in and help with that. I got the Dakar springs and love them. I have the access cab and with no weight in the back it is a little rough but with weight it is a dream. Good luck and looking forward to see what you do.

Hope that kinda helps.

Missed this back when you posted. Looks bad ass!

I like the look of 265's with 3" lift.

bjboucher truck looks good, like to see some more pics on level ground!

Shock relocation


Works ok.
Is the shock relocation to aid in articulation? I thought about doing something similar, but didn't know how well it would work

Did you look through my build thread? I think there's one or two in there. I need to take more pictures of it one of these days.

Looks good! You could've saved yourself $30 on that diff drop, don't need 'em on the 2nd generation Tacomas. If you're having rear drive line issues, look into a carrier bearing drop kit as well.

Thanks! I've read so much about the OME stuff and it seams like people are split on installations and getting driveline vibration. I didnt have any issues before and I dont have any issues now after install. I had a friend put it in at his shop so he threw the drop in while it was up on the lift, he said it took like 10 minutes.
