pro comps any day.
edit: not a fan of the center caps though. I'd pass on them.

The raptors are a little flashy for me but they are unique, alot of tacomas have the pro comps. I would go with the raptors for that reason

And a question...

I am looking to level my truck out, I've read that I should get bilstein 5100 and set them at 1.75 and then call the dealership and say my truck is bottoming out with a heavy load in order to get the rear TSB.. is this right?

or can i level it out just by the bilstein 5100 and setting them at .85

I have the 7089s and like them. A lot of people on this site have them, but I've never personally seen them on anyone's truck where I live. Both wheels look good, but I like simple on a truck.

I really like the way your truck looks! Did you use bilstiens 5100s or what?

Theres no guarantee that the dealership will give you the tsb leafs. How many miles on your truck and what year is it?

Any idea of what I should say?

Thanks for all the help btw

You're outside the factory warranty so they probably will tell you to pound sand unless you have a good relationship with your service advisor, who may still tell you to pound sand. If you have the extended warranty I'm not sure if that would cover you. You can get an add a leaf from toytec fairly cheap and they are fairly easy to install. Probably less headache than trying to battle the dealer.

X2 on the AAL from toytec, probably the cheapest option after blocks which will just make your leafs worse. I have heard a better option would be wheelers 3 leaf AAL, which also comes in a HD version if you want a little extra capacity for hauling. Next step up would be a new complete leaf pack, old man emu dakars are nice for about 3" of lift, ironman makes a leaf pack for about 2" of lift. All pro makes leaf packs for 3+" or alcan and deaver make some nice $$$ leaf packs.
Or skip all that, leave the rear alone and set your 5100s to .85". I am guessing at 1.75" you would either be perfectly level or a hair higher in the front, depending on how much your stock leaf springs have sagged

Thats just a guess really. Park on a level surface and take some measurements, you can even throw your bottle jack under the frame up front, take a measurement, jack the truck up exactly .85" and 1.75" and see how it looks

Damn that looks good!
3 leaf is stock right?
