    I dont know anything about the OME Dakar Leaf Packs other then I hear they are a better alternative to AALs. How true is that statement? And which do you recommend as it looks like there is quite a few variations on the ARB website.

    Thanks dudes.

    I have Dakar springs on my 1st Gen, and I love them! Don't know what to tell you about the different choices, because I got the only ones they offered for my year. Maybe someone else has had experience with this?

    So this kit does look like it has the Dakar packs in it...
    COILS OME 886 2
    FR SHOCKS N140S 2
    REAR SHOCKS N182 2
    D/S SPACER FK29 1
    TOYOTA BUSHES 90389-A0003 4
    UBOLTS OMEU53A 4
    REAR LEAFS CS047R 2


    Is this all I need to get a full 3 inchs? And are those the actual shocks most of you run? You can get this kit with 885 as well... Nt quite sure which one I need, 885 or 886?

    OME coils paired with OME shocks is a great choice! It's not what I run, but those who do rave about them...

    Regarding the 885 vs 886, since you have a double cab, the 885s should be fine. 886 might be a little too stiff, unless you plan to run a really heavy bumper (200+ lbs) like the road armor, iron bull, etc...

    The one thing that this kit doesn't include are new upper control arms. They're not absolutely required, but they'll be necessary to correct alignment issues after lifting it 3".

    Do the Dakars with the OME shocks give you enough lift for 33's or do you have to add the extra leaf?

    +1 on the Dakars, there is only one spring pack for our trucks, CS047R is the correct number! You won't get a full 3" in the front with the 885. maybe 2 1/2" or so? I have the 885 with OME shocks and there great, stock UCA isn't ideal but it works for now. You will not be able to run anything bigger then 265/70/16 without a new UCA and wheels. I plan on getting the light racing UCA when the dollar looks better!

    Really? I was under the impression you could fit 285s with 885 and OME shocks.. So you would have to use 886 to fit 285s?

    I'll add to that a bit...

    If you run 285s on STOCK rims, even with new UCAs you'll rub them. You'll need spacers to clear the UCAs.

    Ahh stock wheels... Ok. So its all in the offset. So does that kit look like it includes the shims to even out the "taco Lean"?

    Yep, it's all about the offset. The stock offset is ~5.5" I believe. If you look at aftermarket rims, look for 4.5" or less.

    So this makes me wonder- Will it all be level front to back if I go Dakars and 885s?? I'm not so hung up on 3 inches-but it does need to be level and higher. (I'd like the full three- but it's not a deal breaker)
