    2004 Tacoma 4x4 sr5 TRD off-road
    Hi this is my first post. I recently purchased a stock 2004 v6 5speed TRD off-road; it's black and has about 60000 miles on it (if anyone cares) I'm ready to put a suspension lift, bumper and winch on the truck.

    I've chosen a Arb bull bar and a 8000 warn winch. That was the easy part. The suspension on the other hand I need help with. I've been looking at the icon coil overs for front. Does anyone have first hand experience with Icons on a 1st gen? Any input would be much appreciated!

    Will they be fine with the added weight of bumper+winch?
    Also, should I go ahead and install new uca's?
    What is the benefit of new UCA'S over the stock one?
    Do I need to get a diff drop kit with the upgraded suspension?

    Im probably going to replace the entire rear leaf pack. Looks a little saggy. Any reccomendations on new packs? Also probably going with the icon shocks in the rear.

    Pretty much I need help/reasurance on spending my money the right way.

    Thanks in advance!

    I went with the OME full lift from Downsouthmotorsports.com (Marco). 882 coils with the ARB and winch is a great setup. Take a look at my build. I just added a 1" daystar body lift to run 305/70s. Hope this helps.

    Welcome to TW, Dino! If you haven't already done so, I recommend you spend some time in the Suspension forum. Specific areas of interest include the Tacoma Lift FAQ/Guide and Suspension Lift Info Stickies.

    In the meantime, I'll echo Mark's OME recommendation. (I'm very happy with mine.) In addition to DSM, you might also check with Wheelers Off-Road and Toytech. All offer competitive pricing and good customer service.
