    I am about to pull the trigger on the Relentless bumper, however I am not looking for a huge lift. Will getting a set of billies help out with the additional weight of bumper and winch. So many options out there for suspension. I nice set of coilovers would be nice but spendy. OME has a complete lift for about the same as a set of coilovers. I have a brand new set of 265/70/17 toyo's so I don't want to go to high. I just can't stand having a normal tacoma. Will the relentless bumper work with a bud built IFS skid? I believe the stock one will still work. Do you still retain the sway bar with the relentless bumper? I guess I need to do even more research.

    I think you will need heavy duty coils. Some guy smarter than me will chime in.

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.

    The 5100's are not going to change much if you keep the stock coils I recommend you getting some beefy coils the bumpers are heavy and I don't think stock coils will cut it.

    Can I run OME N182 NitroCharger Rear Shock Set on a stock rear end? All I am looking to do is level out the front end and put a bumper and winch on it. As it sits right now 35.25 inches in the front and 37.5 in the rear. If I get OME 886 Tacoma Front Coil Set which is said to give a 1.75 inch lift.It should level it out and give me the strength needed to hold up to the extra weight. So if I leave the rear stock other than the shocks and put new coils and shocks up front....should work Right??
