    Yes the 2.5 diameter shock vs the 2.0 will both achieve the same lift heights.
    Yes add a leafs in the rear.

    So I have the Boss 2.5 complete lift installed in my 2016dcsb. Over all I'm pretty happy with it. I have added mobtown skids (a complete set), as well ass an sos bedrack, and CVT tent to the bed, and I am loosing lift as I add more weight. I expected this, but as I look into adding plate bumpers front and rear, with a tire carrier in the rear I am afraid I will loose to much. So my question is what are my best options to add some strength to the rear springs, and when I do so can I just crank up the front coil overs, or should I be looking into 700lb coils up front as well. I am building it more as for overlanding purposes then hardcore off road, but when doing the prior, one sometimes encounters the later.

    Thanks in advance

    The 2016+ Tacoma's are a bit heavier of a truck to start out with. If you do plan on adding some weight to the front of it you definitely could upgrade to the 700lb coils in the front to help keep a firm ride and less pre-load. If you plan to keep the front stock you can stick with the 650lb coils. I do have 700's in stock but I do only have silver coils. As far as the rear, is the weight going to be constant? If so i would say going with a full OME leaf pack in the back WITH the OME add a leaf to hold the extra weight and keep the lift. The OME in the rear ride very nice and would match well with 700's in the front.

    If you plan on towing getting one of the kits with the full leaf pack would be the best for towing, unless you wanted to put an airbag system in the back.

    I’m deciding on which rear shocks to get. Toytec boss 2.0 with resi or the toytec boss 2.5 without resi. Beside the diameter, Is there a difference in performance?

    The 2.5 rear shocks will be a Completely rebuild-able shock. The resi 2.0 will not be.

    Shoot me a pm and I can get you squared away on pricing.

    The progressive 3 pack AAL will be better for longevity of your rear leafs along with giving you the proper lift and maintaining proper payload on your leaf pack.

    The block will not change your ride quality but will, overtime, flatten out your leaf pack. Especially if you are going to be loading down the Tacoma.

    I have a 2012 4door Tacoma, with all pro apex bumper (aluminum), steel skids, and warn M8-S 8000. I'm currently running the OME front (887) and rear, with Dakar springs. Happy with the set up, but its starting to sag in the front with everything I have on the truck. I see that toytec carrys a lot of different brands of coilovers, so I'm hoping to get some feedback on what to get.
    My truck is a DD, but I do like to trail ride on the weekends, but I don't bash my truck.

    thanks

    Just need more $$$ and time!
    Is there any noticeable performance gains by going with the 2.5 resis in the rear vs non reservoir w/ OME leaf pack for a daily driver that will only occasionally be offroad? I also tow frequently so just trying to get the best on road ride with decent off road performance.

    none yet, and I stress YET
    I think the OME 886 springs are heavier rated and should get your front back up. Check the web site for spring ratings and specs

    I have a 2010 DCLB with 130,000 miles that I am thinking needs original suspension updated. Since I’m going to do this I thought I might as well add some lift also. Nothing drastic as I rarely go off road but would like maybe 2”-2.5” of lift. What suggestions can you give me Toytec?

    Thanks

    I am new to owning Toyota’s. 2019 Tacoma trd off-road. It’s only got 40 miles on the odometer. I drive Toyota’s at work. I had some question about getting the right lift. I was looking for 2 to 3 inch lift. I will be getting a shell. Fiber glass. I will be trailering a flat fender Jeep 2300 lbs. along with a pop up trailer. Don’t know weight. Not rock crawling, With 4 wheeling. The Jeep Willys be doing a little more challenging.

    Do you recommend AALs? Or new springs? Or blocks? Not lookin to put big tires on. Maybe 31 inch max. Without needing to modify.
    Also with upgrading with you lift will I void my warranty? I do know there is a forum about it. Just wondering if you might know. I do know the risk of raising it with tss.
    Was thinking you might have a recommendation and more questions.

    Toytec- some questions for ya..

    Truck is a 2010 DCLB TRD SPORT with 3” Procomp lift. Coils in front with block in back. I have no complaints on this kit but want to upgrade to your product. BUT I’d like to keep the procomp front coils to save money. Would you recommend a shock to use with the current coils I have and a rear leaf/shock set up?

    If the idea is a totally stupid one let me know

    I’ve had the rear leafs dealer replaced last year. I have a MobTown front recovery bar and winch goes into the front receiver when needed. On the bed I have bed bars that hold my tent axe shove hi lift etc year around with steel trail gear tube bumper. It’s also my daily driver. Tires are 255/80/17 coopers
