    OME up front, Dakar in the back, Elite front bumper, Warn winch, Tactical rear bumper with tire swing/jerry cans/hi lift, Revenge Fab. sliders, Tundra brakes, Camburg UCA's, Safari Snorkle, FJ TRD wheels, Truxedo, Bed Rug, Lights, CB, Switches, skids, LED's... OH MY!
    So I want to make sure my list includes exactly what I need because those buying it for me won't know...

    I've decided to go with the Toytech 3" lift w/ OME coils and toytec AALs. One day in the distant future I will get an ARB bumper (or something similar to that style) so should I get the medium or heavy coils? is it ok to drive around with the heavier coils but not have the heavy bumper yet?

    I will also get the Billy 5100s all the way around. The toytec website says that longer shocks will be required in the rear... will these shocks suffice?

    I want to get the 1" front diff. drop, does anyone know if this particular lift comes with one? Or where I can buy one individually? I read a lot of people not knowing they were getting one and it surprises them in the box.

    So as far as getting this kind of 3" lift on my 02 Taco DC... am I missing any components?


    Thanks for the help guys - let me know what you think of my choice...

    go ahead and get the heavy coils...yes, its ok to drive around with them now. 5100's wioll be ok for the front, but you may need the 5125's for the rear.....they are a little longer. not sure if the kit comes with the diff drop, but you can buy it from toytec for cheap. if it comes in the kit....sell the diff drop here, or send it back to toytec. if you buy one and need to sell it.........i'll probably buy it from ya.

    i meant which length? it looks like the 5125's come in 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 inches and several half inch sives too... they also come in light and medium valving...

    which goes with my lift?

    hey there TacoMan! I got a diff drop kit just sitting around. been wanting to get rid of it, seeing's how my kit came with one. The only thing my diff. drop kit didn't come with is the skid plate spacer, that i geuss toytec has in there kit. I belive I got mine from RevTek.
