    I'm installing this lift kit to my 3rd gen Tacoma.

    Fox 880-06-418 (w/ 14" 650 lb spring)
    Fox 883-26-006 (Tundra rear shocks w/ DSC)
    ICON Delta Joint UCA - ICON-58450DJ
    ICON Multi-Rate RXT Leaf Spring Kit 51101 (configuration #2)
    ICON Hydraulic Air Bump Stop Systems Rear Hydraulic Air Bumpstop System - 56103

    ECGS Needle bearing

    Any advice or good tutorials?

    I've reading and watching some videos and I think I'm ready. I'll be measuring from the middle of the hub to the fendor at ride height and at full droop. Then I'm going to go for 2" more of lift for a total of 3" of lift (2" lift + 1" stock lift height).

    Dive in and ask for help as needed. Make sure you have a vice to install bushings as needed. Also check to make sure all the parts are ready to be installed.

    You got it, search for plenty of videos on YouTube to install everything. That includes the shocks and coilovers, the UCA and how to remove the bolt, to grinding off the rivers for the hydraulic bumpstop mounts. Having a visual reference really helps for guidance on what to do. My suggestion is watch those videos and then make a quick list of questions you may still have and throw them up here for clarification or some tips

    Any idea how many threads I should have showing on the Fox 2.5 coilcovers (w/ 14" 650 lb springs), if I want to achieve 2" of additional lift? I know it will take some fine tuning based on my measurements but if I can get it close before installing it will be less of a headache.

    Call me silly. I know the 3rd gen sits about 1” higher from factory then the 2nd gen. But if you remove the factory coilovers your basically at 0. setting you new coilovers at 2” is just 2” of lift not 3 because all the factory stuff is gone.

    I'm adding 2" of lift based on my measurements. For example if at stock height I measure 21" from center hub to fender, then I want to measure 23" after my lift.
