    Missed this back when you posted. Looks bad ass!

    I like the look of 265's with 3" lift.

    bjboucher truck looks good, like to see some more pics on level ground!

    Is the shock relocation to aid in articulation? I thought about doing something similar, but didn't know how well it would work

    Did you look through my build thread? I think there's one or two in there. I need to take more pictures of it one of these days.

    Hey All, I'm finally able to add my rig to this thread! Huge thanks to everyone else who posted as TW is where I did all my research. Thanks Lodi87 for answering my questions. I'm really pleased with the OME stuff, my truck rides even smoother than it did before.

    885 coils and LR UCA's up front
    Nitro Charger shocks all around
    1.5" add a leaf out back
    Diff Drop installed

    Looks good! You could've saved yourself $30 on that diff drop, don't need 'em on the 2nd generation Tacomas. If you're having rear drive line issues, look into a carrier bearing drop kit as well.

    Thanks! I've read so much about the OME stuff and it seams like people are split on installations and getting driveline vibration. I didnt have any issues before and I dont have any issues now after install. I had a friend put it in at his shop so he threw the drop in while it was up on the lift, he said it took like 10 minutes.

    Anything more than just a spring compressor needed to assemble the fronts? I can't see paying Wheelers $158 for assembly unless there is something I'm missing.
