    I think that is a dumb reason. Function>form. You'll never notice once they get dirty. Here is what ome from, 5100 rears looks like :rolleyes:

    Just go full ome. Worth the money. I've been very impressed with my front suspension.

    I have no experience with it but I have talked to a couple people who have paired ome coils with 5100s. They say it rides on the rough side. But how a truck rides is subjective. With no weight up front you should see ~2" of lift out of the 881s on nitrochargers. I'm running 883 and the older shocks so it rides great on the road and soaks up bumps very very well but it doesn't flex out very easily.

    If your gonna go OME in the front just go full ome don't mix it up trust me. Ome are made to work with each other there not built for 5100. Rather go full ome in front or get a set of sway aways or icons for the front with dakars in the rear

    OME Lift, 285's
    I have an 01 4x4 double cab v6. I do plan on adding an off road bumper in the future. But not right away. One big purchase at a time here...

    Is there a standard in which people seem to go with in terms of 881's, 882's and 883's for this type of truck? I'd like to achieve somewhere around 2.5-3 inches of lift.

    From what I've read, full OME seems to be the way to go. Any advice or suggestions?

    Looks great! Are you running top plate spacers with the 882's?

    It's funny, in 09 when I first joined getting the 5100 fronts paired with OME coils was THE THING to do. Now that consensus seems to be no more. I wanted 5100 fronts but they were sold out when I bought them so... I guess I'm glad I went with the nitrocharger but.

    Nah. Looks close mine when I first lifted. Before it settled of course.

    I'm actually looking for a way to lift the rear more. Even with the AAL with the dakars, I'm not really sitting level. Leaning toward new shackles at this point.

    Hmm that's interesting, maybe because it's a double cab...my extcab doesn't look that high and I have 4inches in the rear and 3&1/4 inch of lift up front

    Except your on 265/75s in that pic and he says he on 285/70/17 tires which are roughly 1.5" taller than your tires.

    I thought the exact same thing when I saw those pictures. Looks really high for 285s.

    Oh whoops. Didn't notice that. They are more like 1" taller so yeah, it is pretty high. 882s are taller than my 883s and he's got a 10mm spacer on top. With no heavy bumper that will sit pretty high.
