    If you take a forum wide census, you will find the the majority of members will either recommend the OME or Bilstein set-up. Truthfully, it all depends on how much $ you want to spend and what you plan on doing with your truck.

    Check out the vendor section. Toytec, Wheelers and Downsouth all sell OME lifts (although Downsouth doesn't have them listed). The OME kit is around mid $700's with an AAL, around $1,100 with the dakar leaf pack.

    Check out www.Toyteclifts.com or www.wheelers.com

    There are several different configurations of OME available. If you want the kit with the shocks, about $750. If you want the kit with just the springs, about $300.

    pay attention to spring rates as the pro comp has 730 pound springs that can be a problem for some if you choose to not run a winch bumper and armor.

    the pro comp lift frequently yields more than three inches on V6 models of tacoma's in stock form. on 4 cylinder tacoma's like mine it yielded 4.75:eek:

    so its not a matter of is it a good lift for the price or if it is the right choice it's a matter of what your going to do with your truck like others have stated.

    on any model i would think a plate steel bumper and winch combo would be in order. if you where to call down south motor sports they would not even recommend that high a spring rate even with full armor and bumpers front and rear and a winch. that is some thing you would have to ask for special.

    The ride is too rough for me.

    You get what you pay for with the ProComp lift.

    If you do get the ProComp, def get aftermarket upper control arms!!

    I have the procomp 3 inch, and on the road its not bad. I can't really tell you much about the off road capability b/c I haven't had it off the highway yet.

    I also have the ProComp 3" lift and honestly, I don't see why anyone hates on it. Yes the ride is a little stiffer at first, but for the price and amount of lift, how could you go wrong.

    Seems to me a lot of people bandwagon when they see something is good or bad.

    All I have to say is good lift at a good price.

    Procomp 3" lift here too.. no problems. Drives surprisingly well on the road, and amazing off road. It goes everywhere all the other tacos go plus some. But thats because of the amount of lift it gives compared to the 5100's, icon, etc. Which is another reason i like the kit. its all personal preference really. If your gonna hit a trail every once an awhile.. its great. If your gonna hit trails every weekend, Its still great.

    I am happy with my 3in pro comp lift. I think it rides just as good as before I lifted it. that said:
    what kind of off roading do you plan to do? That will really determine what kind of lift you should get. Everyone has an opinion! In the end it's really only yours that matters.
    Pro Comp will give you a 3 inch with no spacers need like OME and the 5100 will only give you 2.5 inches. I do not have a replacement bumper or winch in the front. Well good luck! I am sure you will be happy with whatever you get! Let us know what you choose.

    ok. that being said... would i need to get stiffer springs in the front because i do plan on getting a plate bumper in the future.

    UCA's yes?
    stiffer springs yes?
