    I finally sold some race truck parts and now i have the money to put a lift on the tacoma.

    what i am planning is OME setup,
    886's and Dakars, carrier bearing drop shims,
    stainless steel extended brake lines front and rear,
    U bolt flip kit for the rear (What brand should i look into)
    Built right UCA or the one offered by DSM. (anyone run the DSM UCA?)

    And for bump stops, is there a significant difference from stock bumps to timberns or something similar?

    also, does OME offer a resivoir shock for the rear?

    is there anything else to consider for the lift that is needed or beneficial in some way?

    truck is a '11 double cab short bed.
    (sliders are coming soon, and possibly full skid plates, no plate bumpers yet, but the truck will have a high clearance tire carrier rear eventually and some plate bumper up front with winch.)

    Coils, shocks to accommodate the lift, all pro u-bolt flip is good & only $50, brake lines aren't needed but good to have nonetheless, new UCAs, and a leaf pack. You can re use the stock bumps with the flip kit some how or run without them.

    3" OME lift 885s & Dakars riding on 33" KM2s Click the sig pic to see the build thread .
    886s with no plate bumper & winch is going to be a verry stiff front end.

    toytec. I got my rear brake lines for like $60 total. and yes, you should replace rear brake lines if your are swapping out your leaf pack.

    why do you want rear resi shocks? Do you know the benifits of them? do you want them for looks? What type of driving/offroading will you be doing and will the extra cost be worth it?

    What model Tacoma do you have? 886's on a 4 cylinder would give you too much lift without a heavy plate bumper and winch. Even on a V6, it will be rough riding until you get armored up. The 886's are designed to have over 200# hanging off the front end so you might want to hold off the install until you get some of that armor ordered up at least.

    OME does not make a remote resi that I'm aware of but you can pair the Dakars with any shock you choose.
