I have done a lot of searching/reading, and have learned so much from this site. Thanks to everyone who has contributed. I still have a few questions though....
I have a 2010 trd offroad access cab with a canopy on the back. It will be my daily driver for my sales job, but It will also take me on fishing trips on a regular basis. When going on these trips, the truck is fully loaded up with gear and has a 140lb boat on top. I will be doing moderate off-roading to get to the lakes, but some of these roads can get reaaallly nasty with huge ruts. Because of this, I want to get a 3" lift, and better tires. Now here are my questions about getting a lift:
1. OME 884's or 885's? Will 885's be too stiff for around the city? Will 884's be too soft for off-roading when im loaded up with all of my gear, boat, etc? I don't plan on any aftermarket bumper, but maybe a light off-road bar.
2. If I go with coilovers (toytec ultimate lift), what are my advantages? where do they slot in regarding ride stiffness between 884's and 885's?
3. Why does the toytec OME package get a 3" lift up front and 2" AAL lift in the back? won't this create an uneven lift???
4. The guy at the off-roading store told me the OME lift only does 1.75" of lift? I thought it could get me 3" of lift without spacers?
Thanks for your help guys!
