Those are not for you. Go to downsouthmotorsports.com and look at their "Build your own MidTravel kit" for the Tacoma. You'll have everything you need

I would call Downsouth Motorsports and talk to those guys. They know their stuff and will help you pair products that work well together and valve them properly for you. What you have there is a nice setup, but call them still, it'll be worth having the conversation before dropping that kind of money. You'll likely need extended brake lines, possibly taller bump stops for the rear, axle shims and a CB drop kit.

Definately call DSM. from what ive read on here, you actually arent supposed to run any rear lift with the king shocks. Apparently there too short. People who do run leaf packs with there kings usually have some custom extension made for their shocks. Just thought id let you know.

I found this out because i plan on running almost exactly what you want very soon. Because of what i heard about the rear kings, i decied im probably gna run the kings in the front, with icon in the rear paired with icon aal.
Once again...just thought id let you know.

On the build my own mid travel set up on DMS there is an option for the kings to fit with the Dakar leaf pack so im guessing it has some sort of extention on it

The option your talking about is a 1" longer rod on the bottom of the shock. This gives you the ability to run a full leaf pack with King OEM shocks. DSMS did this to my rear shocks.
