    I am new to TW and just bought an 09 Tacoma Off Road 4x4 to replace my 1999 4runner. I am in upgrading my Taco for expedition hunting trips in NV and Calif in a simialr fashion to the way I modified my 4runner.

    I want a 3 inch suspesion lift. On my 4runner I had the medium OME kit that was installed at 4wheel parts. I really liked it. I am planning to have the 3" OME heavy kit installed on the Taco so that I can install a winch bumper.

    What do you think? OME or something else?

    I am listing the 4runner tonight in the for sale section.

    Sounds like OME is perfect for your application. Congrats on the truck! and Welcome to TW!

    For the price range the OME kit falls into, it's a tough setup to beat. Plus you've already had it once so you know it performs well.
