    Westin bullguard, Steelcraft 3" Nerfbars, Bilstein 5100s all around -front set at 2.5", toytec 2" AAL, Wickedflow muffler, 265/70/17 Destination ATs.
    After lurking on these forums I think I finally have my setup. Bilstein 5100s in the front and back with rear 1.5' add-a-leafs. I would like to get 285/70/17 tires if they won't rub or should I stick with 265/70/17s?

    With the add a leafs coming should I get the rear suspension TSB? I need it, I had my truck loaded up with only about 700 lbs (passenger +cargo) and hit a rut - my truck bottomed out so hard I thought it was going to explode.

    ANY tips/suggestions are appreciated. I've tried hard to figure all this stuff out but I really don't know what I'm doing.

    The TSB's in the rear will stiffen your ride a little but they are well worth it. I had them done on my 2006 plus the AAL and was very happy. The 5100's are a great way to get lift without breaking the back. It will probably take a good bit of trimming to fit 285's with a 2.5" lift. I had 3" and still did a lot of trimming to fit 285/70/17.

    That's the same lift that I'm going to do. The only difference is that I will also be adding Eibach coils up front. I will be setting the Billies at 0 since the Eibach's are longer than my factory coils. I should get a little less than 2 inches of lift up front from the coils without having to compress them with a higher 5100 setting.

    I was thinking about doing the same.
    Which springs are you planning on buying? (link, website)
    Where is the best place to buy the shocks?

    I'm going to get my springs from http://www.toyteclifts.com. Their is only one set of Eibach's for 2nd gen. For the rear, I'm going with the 1.5 inch add a leaf for TSB springs. I don't have the TSB springs, but these will still work. Toytec is an official vendor on TW and they offer members a 5% discount. You have to PM them to get the discount code.

    Am I alright without new coils? The Bilsteins are backordered at toytec. If I order them now, any idea if they will come in by August?

    The Bilsteins are a great way to go! (we have them in stock for 2nd Gen Tacomas) The AAL will stiffen up the rear end and help prevent bottoming. But for when you do bottom out, to soften the blow, look into a set of rear Super Bumps.
