    A plate bumper would squat the front springs pretty bad on a stock tacoma. The Eibach coils are taller and much stiffer than stock so they'd support the weight fine. If you want to run a plate bumper on stock coils, you might want to consider aluminum to save weight. With the right tires, I'd imagine it'd look fine, no pics though, sorry.

    Yah I might get some eibachs in the front and then get a plate bumper. No plans on lifting right now since I dont have the money for tires. 3 inch lift with stock tires looks goofy IMO

    I wouldn't waste your money doing the suspension twice. I'm assuming you off road if you're considering a plate bumper for protection or recovery, if so, you might want to go for the Relentless Aluminum version. That can be run with stock suspension and you can then save up for the lift you actually want (Not a short lift now only to scrap it and do it again later for a 3" lift). Just my $0.02.

    Well, I dont really off road but I'm mainly looking for protection against deer/hog. Within a month of owning my truck, I have nearly clobbered a deer on three different occasions. Maybe an ARB?

    Eibachs and an ARB. You'll sit just above stock height and will be a deer crushing battering ram.

    Win! or OME 884's or Eibachs with 5100s set at .85? I will be getting the TSB in the rear so I will try to get a mostly level look. Hell, if I could find a good deal on a Ranch Hand that would work but a replacement bumper would be WIN! :D

    I ran my Relentless at the URE meet last year with stock front suspension on 1/4" spacers with no issues. It's far from ideal but can be done.
