    Got my truck lifted Friday, alignment Saturday, and took it off roading yesterday! Went with 5100’s, Eibach pro-lift coils, SPC UCA’s, and ToyTec mini leaf pack. I’m happy :)

    Thanks! 2”.. they ride great. Night and day difference from stock coils. Easily worth the money.

    I decided to go the cheap route and used my stock coils with 5100's at the 3rd notch(1.55") and im not too happy with the ride, i feel EVERYTHING and my kids hate being in the truck now. I may have to switch out to either Eibach's or OME's.

    Can i ask what made you go the Eibach route? Most people here seem to love the OME's.

    I had stock coils on 5100’s set on the 3rd notch as well and the difference is definitely noticeable. The guys over at ToyTec said the OME coils don’t play nice with 5100’s. Something about the notch placement and/or inconsistency in lift height reported from customers. New coils are on 1st notch (lowest setting) in case you decide to go this route. I don’t remember but I think they also mentioned something about the Eibach coils being less harsh on paved roads vs OME. Am I talking out of my ass or does that sound about right @ToyTec Lifts

    I bought them off Amazon. I found out they were sold by Right Toyota in Scottsdale, AZ

    Genuine OEM Quality Toyota Tacoma 2016+ Premium Tailgate Letter Insert Inlay TRD PRO Satin Black https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MXT8KJ4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_h.UPAbW1NHVFN

    $100 but they look OEM badges. You can find Tuffskinz on Amazon for $50 but from what I’ve seen they don’t look as good. They’re a lot more flat than the ones I put on my truck. Speedy but worth it IMO.

    if i were you, i'd try Bilstein 6112/5160 with HD Dakars.. that might change your mindset. they are already pre-designed to function well.
