I had a 3' leveling kit in the front of my 08 = the ride sucked.
SO I dicthed those and went with the adjustable 5100/coilover set up from ToyTecLifts = killer. very high quality product, nice lift, and it gives a better ride than stock.

Look sup Neubs on this forum - he had a group buy going.

Good luck, and keep us posted with pics!

So far i hear only good things about that lift bro but im looking at the mtoo right now and i think im liking the OME 3" lift better for a few reasons its cheaper which is nice .....well thats basically the only reason get the most bang for your buck right but the toytec has a great warranity lifetime is a long time lol and it is also adjustable another great feature maybe look into the OME as well see what u think

I have the OME and I am happy with it, at first i bought the add-a-leaf which sucked. I ended up getting the OME Dakars and I am stoked on them.

So what I've gathered the differences are that the Toytec Ultimate has better warranty(not sure what the OME is), is adjustable, and has shims for the rear, and a sway bar relocate due to coil over design.

I'm having trouble seeing the $450 difference between the 2 systems.

OME is a limited 2 year warranty.
OME's have no adjust ability.
OME's require assembly, ours does not.
With the shims, we needed to throw in longer U-bolts
Bilstein 5100's shocks vs. OME shocks.
And our's will out live an OME coil over 2 to 1.

Sounds good, what about performance both on and off road? Smooth riding, absorbing bumps, and ability to flex?

approximately the same. When it comes to IFS, there is not much room for improvement with articulation..

Appreciate the honesty, you guys should get into the install business now.

PS what UCA and wheel set up are your running?
