    Just to play devil's advocate, if you're looking at the 2.0 fox's, have you also looked into the bilstien 6112/5160?

    Yeah I've looked at that setup, and ran 5100's on my first gen for over 6 years. Mostly curious in trying another manufacturer, I also remember the 5100's being pretty stiff (Eventhough the 6112/5160 would probably be a little more forgiving than the 5100's.)

    The 6112 have a 60mm piston vs what is probably around a 43mm piston for the fox. Plus paired with the 5160 in the rear with the resi might be a better route for that price point.

    Fox will try to push the ifp but it's still a 2.0. I think a lot of that goes to brand at that level for them. It's stuff over recently looked into for a sole purpose trail truck.

    Those and the dobsons.


    I don't think I'd go fox until their 2.5 line. Just a personal preference.

    Thanks for the points you provided, all makes sense. I believe with the type of driving I do the 2.0's would be more than adequate.

    Still curious for answers to my original questions!

    Won't need a duff drop. A carrier bearing drop is used at higher lifts

    @Tyler Andrews the 2.0s are a pain to adjust because a spring compressor is needed due to them being aluminum and will destroy the shock without compressing the spring. If your looking for adjustability i highly recommend the 2.5s being as you can adjust them easily on the vehicle and get them right where you want. I am a bit biased seeing as I have the 2.5s but a big reason I went with them was to be able to fine tune the suspension to the height and ride quality I am looking for at any given time. My truck sits pretty level with the setup I have and where I have it set and the ride is amazing. I have some pics in my profile album if you wanna check it out or would be happy to post some more on here if interested. Hope whichever you choose you are happy with it and enjoy it as I do mine :fistbump:

    Hey there boys and girls, I thought I'd join the party. I'm in the process of getting a FOX 2.5 kit together. Tell me I'm making a fantastic choice... I'll be combining them with Dirt King Uppers and Lowers in the front.

    I only offer opinion based on my hrs of research and reading on this forum but if it helps I'm happy. Also thank you on the compliment. I have spent alot of time along with put a hurtin on the wallet:rofl: but all well worth it in my eyes:notsure:. It is slowly becoming all of what I wanted it to be from the day I bought it so it feels pretty good. Just know whatever you do go with we all wanna see some pics of the newly lifted taco :thumbsup:

    @419DewMort17 Fantastic choice :fistbump:. What made you want to go with the dirt king upper and lowers out of curiosity? Also like I said to @Tyler Andrews make sure you post up pics when you get the everything installed. Always enjoy seeing all the different setups and sharing the joy of having the best trucks on the road:bananadance::rofl:

    Jumped in on a group buy I found on this forum. Also, I had Total chaos uppers on my 3rd gen 4runner and I absolutely hated them. Going with dirt kings and fox because, you know.. go big or go home.

    Gotta love this forum for them group buys for sure,helps us all save money :D. You say go big or go home does that mean you are going with the dirt king long travel kit? I have seen a few long travel setups and it seems kickass but was a bit out of my price range for everything needed to put it together. If you are going that route props to you and that is for sure gonna ride smooth over the whoops. What size wheel and tire are you planning for your lift.

    Anyone know how much , if any, additional lift the extended coil length coilovers with the Fox Suspension Level 2 kit provides? Is it a 600# spring?

    You already got advice from us on that subject :thumbsup: If you have any more specific questions we're still available.
    Extended length Fox 2.5s are rated for 0-3" of lift, non-extended are 0-2". The spring doesnt allow you to go taller, you always be limited by the total travel in the shock.

    Hey guys, sorry I hope that didn't offend you, I was just making sure that the extended coils were synonomous with what we talked about in terms of spring length and # rating .... I know it seems like that's a no brainer, but I didn't know if extended coil possibly meant something different than spring length lmaooo... bear with me here, I'm NOT the sharpest mind mechanically speaking at all LOL ... I greatly appreciate your conversation in PM!

    :) Not offended what so ever! The "extended length" is referring to the overall shock length, the springs will be the same between extended and non-extended. Feel free to message us if you cannot find an answer you need.

    No, I'm not doing Long Travel. I live in Colorado and would never use it. I'll be doing 80% of my off-roading in Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, Montana and Idaho. As for tire size i'll start with some 285/70/r17 and then go from there.

    OK I just wasn't sure but either way the fox 2.5s will be badass and the ride is great. Im running a 285/70/R17 which is about a 22.88in tire from bfg and they fit really nicely with no chopping of my truck. What kind of wheels you gonna slap on? Are you going 2.5s all the way around with dsc?
