    To be as up front as possible, I know nothing about lifts. I have read through about every lift inspired post on this website and have decided on the following:

    OME Suspension Lift Kit, 885 Coils, Top Plate Spacers, Complete Rear OME CS047R Springs with U-Bolts and Light Racing Upper Control Arms

    With that said, is there anything else that I should add? For that matter, would you change anything out?

    To give you a little information, this will be my DD but I do fish and hunt so off road capabilities, although not "wheeling" are important.

    Thanks!

    What are you putting the lift on and what's already on it? (ie, double cab, access cab, is it armored, skids, plate bumper, winch, etc). That info would be useful.

    Haven t picked the truck up yet but it will be a 2007+ Double Cab Short Bed, no armor, plate bumper or winch. Maybe a pre-runner looking light bar up front.

    Does the rear kit come with shocks, drive shaft spacer and shims? They may not be needed but they're good to have on hand if you develop vibes and they're relatively cheap if you buy them with the kit.

    No, it doesn't have those included but I will definitely pick them up. Thanks for the heads up!

    My plan is to take the vehicle straight to get all of this installed the moment I pick it up.

    Install the OME CB drop ( fitting kit FK29 ) when you install your lift , wait on the diff drop

    Did you put this on your truck? I bought the CB drop kit and haven't installed yet because it looked like it would make straighten out the shaft between the CB and diff, but create a new issue between the transfer case and CB :confused:

    I'm assuming yours is working out well though?
