    The spacers should fit the TRD Off-Road models. There is no difference in models other than the progressive coil in the coilover assembly on the Off-Road. Make sure you adjust your front bump stops accordingly to compensate for the spacers, or you may snap a strut.

    Link to the product? Not exactly sure why it wouldn't fit, but who knows. You're not going to like the spacers, but that's a whole other story :oops:

    Whenever I had my spacers, the ride was extremely rough. Plus, they made my truck sit nose high. You can try them out, but I wouldn't pay a shop to put them on. To me, it would be worth the wait for the 5100's.

    I am running 5100's all around with a one inch block in the back. My current leafs are shot, so I didn't want to spend $125+ on an AAL when I could get a block for $60. I'm currently deciding on whether I want to upgrade to some Dakars or wait for the Toyota recall that "should" be coming up within the next year. You'll like the 5100's as long as you don't max them out! :thumbsup:

    Yeah would be pointless in aal now that I think of it. Until toyota resolves the leaf spring issues that is.

    Yeah, those spacers may create some alignment problems. Considering they are advertising for a full 3 inches in lift, your UCA's might not like that too much.

    None yet.
    oh another $65 lift on a $xyz dollar truck... ditch the spacers and save up to get the 5100s, coils and AAL... take it from a lot of people on here you won't be disappointed...
    spacer lifts are like stuffing with a rolled up tube sock... she will find out you have stock suspension...

    Found a kit with 5100s all the way around and new UCA's for around 650 should I just wait for tax season to come around and do it that way?

    To be honest with you, I wouldn't even fool with that spacer kit. You're going to spend a lot of time and work for something that might cause you a lot of headache. I would wait it out and install something that would be worth your time. I did the same thing and ended up regretting the spacer kit. The 5100's are worth the wait over those spacers.

    Uhh yeah let's not ruin your ride and waste your time. Do it right the 1st time. I would suggest saving for something better quality.
