    Pretty cool to stumble across this old thread. I'm running the same suspension as the OP except with 285/70/17's on FJ wheels and I get many compliments by passengers as well as randos so that's cool. I've got about 100,000 miles on the suspension and it's still running solid.
    @CrashN'Burn definitely did some homework and I'm definitely following this thread now (even if a bit too late lol) and going to go back and read through all the pages to compare and contrast.

    Was finally gonna install my Pro kit in a couple of weeks but now I’ve got a rear leaf failure on the pass. side. Really debating on which springs to go with next. Definitely not goin’ with the stock POS springs again.

    I had the Icon AAL before my Dakars. With a fiberglass leer canopy they sagged, without they were great.

    See that’s just it. I’m waitin’ patiently for a good quality used topper to show up eventually but for now just the usual 2-3 hundred lbs. of work gear. Things is I wanna get this kit on & I need springs now. Suppose I could go big & take leafs out for now. But which brand to go with. :notsure:

    Hello,

    I know this is an old thread but I'd like to have the benefit of your experience and knowledge to help me evaluate an OME Lift Kit I am considering. My goal is to shore-up against any unforeseen 'gotchas'.

    Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

    Cheers

    May be a bit older, but all the info is still relevant. I responded to your post in the light weight wheel tire thead. :)

    Washed my shocks today, a year later they are doing well, they still look like new. I used Eastwood's 2K AeroSpray Clear (two component paint)on the shock bodies prior to installing, and also Fluid Film before last winter (Utah uses a lot of road salt). My truck isn't my daily driver but did see a lot of winter driving last year.

    Using a clear coat was a great idea, thanks for the advice.

    This thread has been extremely helpful to me so I wanted to post my 2012 V6 on here as well. I’m running TRD BAJA setup as well as the ICON AAL with overloads taken out. Truck handles and performs like it’s on rails. 9F0317C5-AC36-48BF-B26E-8827A593075F.jpg

    Clean looking truck! Those FJ wheels look great in that color combo.
