    Sorry that wasn't clear. Yes I was referring to 5100s.

    For coilovers, I was referring to Kings, Icons, Foxes, etc. Any of the performance 2.5" setups will be worlds better than OME.

    Regarding the cost - I was in the do it right or do it twice camp. Or even three times. I had 5100s, OMEs, three different coils, and eventually ADS coilovers. I think I spent more money and time messing around with all those lower cost options than just buying the expensive one in the first place. Of course, it depends on your application, which is why I started by asking how you would use your truck.

    Depending on where you're located, there's usually several members willing to help with the install. There's a few more nuances wrenching on a 15 year old truck though. I.E. I can almost guarantee your front leaf springs bolts are seized, and your alignment cams may be as well, making it impossible to align afterwords.

    How do you deal with those? Cutting torch? Impact wrench? Do any of the "siezed bolt loosening magic liquids" work -- or help? Regarding the alignment cams... does that mean will probably end up needing UCAs?

    Thx.

    Cleaned the tires off so i could make sure they get balanced this time. And figured the truck needed a little love.

    Have some lovely gum looking splatter down the passenger side but that'll just add to the topo scene.

    Keep in mind that Lambo has no top or a soft topper and we have heavier fiberglass shells...

    If you're up in Boulder, you're welcome to stop by and check out my truck with OEM bumpers, no sliders, Snugtop with full OME suspension: (881 coils up front; Dakar rear with no AAL installed yet).

    Did you mean to say AAL on (stock) old leaf packs is too much for OEM shocks? I ran that for a little bit and didn't have problems, but that's because I was still pretty much riding the bump stops with that setup.

    Sure, but it sounds like your rusty truck is going to be a pain to work on... So pick up some Liquid Wrench (or make your own homemade penetrating oil) and apply it to all of the bolts several days before the job.

    Yes, my old roommate had to use a sawzall to cut the front bolt out of his Tacoma that had lived in Utah. I was fortunately with my California truck that I was able to install the entire suspension by myself with just hand tools and the longest breaker bar I needed was 10" long. No penetrating oil needed for me.
    So, I would recommend adding either new front Toyota bolts/nuts to your order or, even better, get the greasable front bolts: Daystar KT02017BK.

    I agree. Also, on topic of the OME lift for @steve2267, here's how my truck looked 6 months after installing the OME suspension (881 coils and Dakar leafs) and having a full camping load in the back of probably 400 lbs including the 100lb commercial ARE shell. You can see it's sagging a decent amount with just that, so I would DEFINITELY start with the AAL installed to the Dakar leaf springs.

    [​IMG]

    FYI - @steve2267 With the OME suspension, there are only one type of Nitrocharger shocks available for the front of our trucks, the 90004.

    (I just learned this) For the rear, 60062 and 60065. I *think* you want the 60062, which is what I have due to the travel difference and the higher unloaded height with the AAL:
    60062: 587mm (23.2 Inches) Extended
    60065: 581mm (22.8 Inches) Extended​
    Both are 356mm (14 inches) Compressed

    Edit: Now I'm unsure about the 60062 vs 60065 because I see "FIRM" associated with the 60065...

    I may ask Adam over in Utah what OME rear shocks he was running on his Box Rocket build. He had the D43XL extra leaf on his Dakars and regularly overlanded with 450+ lbs in the back. I suspect 60062's are what he ran, and what I think most everyone runs. With comments regarding length of rear shock popping up, I also suspect 60062's are the way to go. No one seems to be complaining about them. Other than the coilover (Fox/Icon/King) snobs. :boink: (Wish I could afford to be snobby to... but...) :rolleyes:

    So about to pull the plug on some Dakar HD's (Tax return money :spending:)

    I currently have about ~250lbs on my rear end with RTT and bed rack. More weight will be coming with bumper/swingout etc.

    On the OME website it says the HD's are meant to have 660lbs+ on them at all times. I don't know if the GVW is included in that or not, nor what will happen if I don't have that weight on there.

    The Dakar SD's are supposed to be up to ~330lbs, which I am already almost there with my current weight.

    Both packs say they provide 2" of lift at their specified weights.

    Opinions on how I should proceed?
    Get the HD's or SD's?
    Consequences of not having the "specified" weight?
    Also what additional parts will I need, (Ubolts and bushings is all I can think of)?

    I’d go HD regardless. Weight always seems to add up and regular packs seems to sag quickly.
    I would do a flip kit at the same time, but that’s up to you.
    Depending on what shocks you’re running, I’d look at possibly longer brake lines. (If you're running shocks that allow for noticeably more down travel than stock it’s worth looking into)

    Where’d you end up going? We are going to try the delta Toyota tomorrow.

    What I was thinking as well with the Ubolt flip. @YamaDirtrider said we'd have to weld the bumpstop somewhere else I think.

    I do have "extended travel" front and rear, thinking 10" total travel maybe? On the Hacket gultch run we thought my leafs were limiting my travel so not sure.
