    I just left the back piece a little large to screw thru, I'm not sure if he used like 1/4" bolts or what, but just a couple of holes and bolts, adjust the cant however u want and torque that sucker down

    I really don't want to screw through the console if I can avoid it. Is there a way to design it so a clip goes over into the cup holder section?

    I can max my travel before my shocks max out with my OME + using my stock lower control arms which I am sure you are too... without a long travel kit all that extra travel you have really isn't even being used anyway.

    Your Kings are nice, I'm sure their quality matches their price but don't make OME seem like it's the "wrong" way to go. Not everyone's budget, needs, or bragging rights desires are the same.

    oh no I don't disagree with you. I don't know much about OME, I'm simply going off of what Justin and Chris have said about theirs, and that's with them doing the same stuff I have.

    r u kidding me? u put a hole in your fender that's over 4" haha jk. I had actually thought that self adhesive Velcro would work but it might not for u off road too well, I can prolly come up with something with a little bit of time

    I think a lot of time people get bitten by the "one upper bug" and just want the cooler shit when they don't need it. Let's switch trucks next time we ride together and see if you can't keep driving the OME.

    haha hey...the snorkel was a necessity that people don't understand. I also don't plan to move the snorkel. I'd like to be able to move the holster if I wanted to. velcro may work, I would just be concerned of any residue left behind if I ever remove it but that's another minor issue. I take better care of my interior than the outside lol

    is that about where u want it (or on the console anyway)? I have looked at a few designs for steering columns too, and the trim on the seat that covers the hinge may also be an option

    This is the holster I use for in the truck stowing. It's from Walmart and the clip on the holster fits perfect here.

    I meant to add, I don't like the quality of the Walmart holster and that's something you could think about while you're building yours. :D

    Too many to list. No different than any other Tacoma out there
    Since everyone else is bickering about who's is best. I will say this...... Any shock for the most part in the categories that have been discussed whether it be Icon, OME, King, Toytec, Bilstein any of those are a upgrade over that factory shocks when the truck is lifted higher than setup from the factory. Does King Off-road make a great shock? YES! Does Icon make a great shock? YES! So do all of the other mentioned in this thread. However there are different levels to everything different stages OME make a shock that is on the same level as KING or ICON with their larger bodies their valving and reservoir for cooling the shock quicker and holding more oil for better dampening. bilstein now makes them, OME has the BP-51. All of these guys make great stuff. How you couple them with the correct springs to suit your build is what will make the biggest difference. Having a true Coilover Assembly will be better because of how you can dial them in to your specific vehicle setup. @stronghammer your shocks have more travel than the OME? Sure they do but how far can you flex that CV shaft? Unless you have a long travel Setup with longer CV axles and limiting straps your setup and mine are on the same level as far as travel. Does anyone here in the southeast not desert or pre-running need Remote Reservoirs? Hell no! you will never get your shocks warm enough beating down the roads we have the ability of driving on close to us. Are they an upgrade to a larger shock body with extended travel? that is up for debate again as we don't live in the desert and are not jumping and running our trucks over whoops at 70mph. Lift kits and how you want the truck to perform is a personal choice. I drive my truck to work everyday and i wheel the piss out of it! almost every single weekend I am going somewhere off the beaten path! I have taken my truck through water up to the hood wheeled on rocks and mud up to the fender well with no issues. I run ome 886 coils on bilstein 5100 shocks and they serve great! I am running wheelers off-road 8 leaf pack with the OME add a leaf D29xl. i have a bed rack rooftop tent awning steel bumpers front and rear with skids. and no issues! except my fuel mileage is a smooth 16mpg
