    Ok, I need a picture request. Does anybody have a pic of the OME kit installed without any spacers up front 885's for DCSB and 265/75/16 tires?

    I have 885's and 265/75/16's, but I installed the top plate spacers, so this pic is close to what you're looking for...see my pics for more

    I have 886s with a front bumper and the same tire size if that will help you at all, check my pics.

    now is it harmful to the truck if you have 886s up front with no bumper or winch?

    A slew of pricey stuff my wife hates me for.
    Not IMHO. If you were running the wrong shocks it could be at full extension, but that isn't any issue if you bought the kit. I didn't run a bumper or heavy skid for a year, but I kept it on the pavement.

    ^^This. I imagine the ride was a lot harsher without the extra weight.

    If I'm going to put 882's on a 2000 Tacoma PreRunner do I need new shocks as well? I will most likely be putting an ARB bull bar on soon after getting the suspension sorted.

    I started a post , but I guess this is were I should have asked.I don’t want to lift my truck. But I would like a better ride. I know I can use the 5100 Blisteins , but I would like to use the 90000 OME. What coils can I use with them to keep the stock height ( or as close as possible). Thanks for you help.

    No. I ran 886s for 20 months before getting an aftermarket bumper.

    I have basically same question, i want to level out front and keep rear factory height but am going with full OME suspension. Only have a lightweight bull bar and lights. So maybe 881's up front. About how much lift after settling with those.
