    Hey guys, just wondering how much sag to expect(if any) with an all pro type bumper. and wich lift would combat this the best. we plan on towing a trailer with 1 or 2 sleds so what i guess i am asking is wich lift doesn't sag too much under weight

    ome 886 coils with ome shocks. I couldn't be happier with this setup. I think it rides as well as my stock trd offroad did. I talked to several of the colorado guys who had the setup i wanted and it seemed that the ome setup was the best for a heavy plate bumper and winch

    ome 886 coils are made for carrying a lot of weight. I dont know the pound rating on them but they are stiff and heavy duty. Does anyone know the pound rating?

    I believe ICONs are 650# for comparison

    The OP didn't say he was getting a winch and the Allpro isn't as heavy as the ARB that the 886 coils are designed to carry .

    He may be better off with 885's .

    885's, OME shocks front and rear, and if you really want to be able to haul get some All-Pro expedition leafs. Do expect 4 inches of lift in the rear unloaded.

    How do I know all of this? I've read way too much about too many products. Do some research.

    he said all pro type not all pro so i assumed he wanted a plate bumper and why would you get a plate bumper and not at least eventually add a winch.
    I guess we need more info from the op about which bumper he is really looking at not a type and if a winch is planned.
    Also i think the big scare about ome 886 coils being so stiff and unforgiving is over inflated hogwash. My DC even for the couple days before the arb went on rode great. I think a lot of people are trying to go a cheaper route on the shocks than the ome ones that are designed for the coils and they are blaming the springs instead of a poor purchase decision.

    He could also get Dakars and not get such a large rear lift , more like 2 3/4-3"

    are the dakars really stiff? I never heard much about them being used to to increase payload, or really just not sag too much under a load.

    Technically , neither the Dakars or the Expos increase payload , they just change the way the truck reacts to loads .

    The Dakars are not overly stiff snd do flex pretty well .

    Not mine they are great. I still get a full 4" on my ex-cab and the have a better ride than my stock mush leafs. I have about 7K miles on them. I drive rock fire trails, sand mud log trails & was just out clearing some ATV trails for dear hunters. After the lift I could not beleve how flat & stable my Taco was on the road.

    wow thx guys! it will more than likely be an all-pro bumper with a superwinch 8500 in there as well. I may try and make my own truck camper out of aluminum 1x1 tubing and skin it in aluminum sheet to keep the weight down. but this is more info than i could have asked for. I tried doing research, but this shtuffs kinda confusing and over whelming to a new to toyota kid like myself :D

    thx again
