    Im goning to buy the OME lift from ToyTech in a couple of weeks and wanted to get some input on the options that I can add to the kit. I can't afford both the rear leaf pack and uca's right now and was woundering what one you think is most important. thanks

    UCA are not necessary to get a perfect alignment. The kit comes with diff drop, cb drop and trim spacer. You will need top plate spacer and 885 coils to get full 3" lift for Double Cab. If you develop vibes, take off the diff drop and see if that helps. You will also need 2" AAl in the rear. Check out wheelers off-road, they have great prices as well as Toytec. If you had to choose, go with the AAL and UCA, or just do the Dakar Leaf Pack and ditch the UCA.

    There is not enough Caster in the front geometry to allow for 2+ * of caster after lifting 3". You need aftermarket UCA's to get the alinment back in check. Also, the 885's are giving 3" lift without the top plate spacer.

    OP, DO NOT install the diff drop. It does virtually nothing to change the angle of the front CV's.

    If you plan on mostly onroad driving (of course you are you got a 2010) Light raceing UCAs are the way to go ZERO maintance....That's what I plan on doing along with 885 coils, and a Toytec TSB AAL, OH and don't forget extended brake lines.

    Are you planning on putting on an aftermarket bumper? If so, then get the 886 coils.

    +1 on Chris4x4's knowledge of the Tacoma. Second to none IMO.

    You got almost 3.5" lift right out of the box. Im still hoping they settle a little bit ;)

    Do you plan to add a heavy bumper and a winch ??? if not ???
    I just replace the Icon's with a set of 884 EMU and I still clear the 285 Revo's with a Relentless bumper.
    Are you planing to do some serious off road ?? If not are you looking just to fit some bigger tires ??? then 884 are not a bad choice and definitely more comfortable then the Icon's. But the will not take a winch.
    Few questions that you have to answer before you decide what is right for you.

    I have the 886 coils and the rear Dakar leaf pack. Save your $$$ and for the time being use the factory UCA's. I do have a ARB bumper and winch. By the way are u a sprinkler fitter?
