886's w N90000's in the front. Dakars with N182's in the rear. Not really sure what I got cause I've never taken any measurements. Curious to see how the 886's do when I put my Allpro front bumper on that is sitting in Calgary, wish it was in my garage.

Upon initial install.
What did you put up front & what did you get?
885x on 90000 Sport Nitros gave me 2.5".
What did you put in back & what did you get?
1.5 AAL gave me 2" with shell.
Are you running trail armor & how much lift did you loose or what did you do to regain/maintain lift?
Not yet, I have a Relentless front bumper on order. Sliders and skids arent far off though.
Tire & wheel specs & rub or what you did to eliminate rub.
265/75R16 Toyo AT II on stock wheels. No rub & no trim.
Are you still running a sway bar?
Not yet. Next days off, if its above freezing.

As it sits today(6-21-13)
What did you put up front & what did you get?
885x on 90000 Sport Nitros gave me 1.5" after armor and winch.

Keith - looking to go to pretty much that exact same height (although 885s will probably do for me). A couple of questions for you:

  • Did you get new UCAs?
  • Did you get the spacer plate?
  • What tire/rim size you running?
Thanks!

Any other PreRunners with OME lift? I need some suspension travel numbers. I'm only getting 1.5" down travel and 1" up travel.





See: no front suspension travel...


I'm running 885x coils on nitro shocks up front, no spacers and AAL in rear (rear flexes just fine)

AZ Mike- yes I got LR UCAs, I didn't get them right away and it was awful. Truck felt really weird on the highway, Caster was out of spec. Also I would jack the front of the truck up by the frame and the stock UCAs were resting against the coil springs-not good. Some say they can get alignment specs in with 885s, great , but your down travel is next to nothing with the stock UCAs. Also I'm not running any top plate spacers and I have 17x9 rims and 265's. I would definetly go with the 285s next time around.

Please post here. I'm gonna take my swaybar off Tuesday and see how it works out at shoe creek. I'm thinking my truck is just too light without a front diff. Would like to see another PreRunner with the same lift.
