    Pretty new here, and just got my lift done. It's been sitting in my garage for a few months, and I finally had some time on sunday to get it installed.

    I can't express how incredible this thing rides now. These Tacos should come from the factory with a ride like this. Maybe not with Icons (it'd drive the price upwards of $40k, i think) but definitely with shocks like these.

    Total install time was around 4 hours including clean-up and test drive. Not my first time lifting a truck, but my first time lifting a Tacoma.

    My complete lift contains the following:

    IVD 2.5 Coil-overs (w/swaybar relocate)
    Wheeler's AAL and OME N182 shocks for the rear
    OME Bearing Carrier spacer

    Before:

    Day I got it . . .

    Then 265/75-16 KM2s . . .

    And now, the lift . . .

    I'm going to start a build thread when I get my ARB bumper, bestop, and start doing something cool. I won't bore anyone with pics of the lift install.

    However, I did jot down a full checklist for each aspect of the lift. When my hands are finally clean, i'll do up a spreadsheet and get it uploaded. One of those things I wish I had on-hand when doing my lift. Ya know . . . torque this nut to this; ensure this is in place; etc. Also, the rear brake lines were a total bitch. I'll pay someone to mess with them if they ever need attention in the future.
