    2013 White Tacoma TRD Sport 4x4 Double Cab
    Hey TW, I recently came into ownership of a 2013 white double cab, extended bed TRD Sport 4x4. [​IMG] [​IMG] From searching through the forums myself I decided to order ARB OME 886, ARB 90000, ARB CS047R, ARB 60091, and ARB FK29. I also ordered OMEU53A(ubolt), OMESB108(spring bush kit). Everything should be here in about a week and I'm pumped.
    I plan on getting a arb bumper and winch with the tax return soon as well, hence I went with the 886's.

    I've seen posts where people get 3 degree axle shims and spacers in the front, I don't care about fitting 33's but I do want the driver and passenger side to sit even. Are the shims a good investment? Maybe thinking about UCA's but from what I understand that what I'm using won't be needed. Input is greatly appreciated and this is a San Diego truck! HMU!:fistbump:

    Install the lift first, with the trim packer if you want to get rid of the Taco lean, and then decide if you need the FK29 and/or the axle shims. Plenty of threads on getting your driveline angles right, and only necessary if you get vibrations. Also look into getting a swaybar relocate kit (Wheelers Off-Road has one) because your swaybar will likely scrape up against your 886 coils. Mine had a little wear mark after only ~6k miles.

    FWIW I ended up with no trim packer (I don't care too much about Taco lean...it's gangster) and the FK29 plus 3 degree axle shims.

    Good choice on the suspension, though. I went the same route but switched to 887 coils because no bumper and 886s were way too stiff. You should be OK with a bumper and winch though. It's gonna look awesome.

    What are you thinking for tires?

    When it comes to tires I'm a BFG fan. I'm running 285/75/16 all terrains on my silverado now, just transitioned from 315 KM2's(which have been the best I've owned so far). So right now I'm leaning towards BFG KM2's on the YETI. I'm really digging the look of the Bronze TRD wheels, granted I haven't looked for a set long, I'm feeling they must be somewhat scarce.

    If you're looking towards a mud terrain tire, I'd recommend the Goodyear MTR with Kevlar. I hear nothing but good from that tire. If it's all terrains, I'd stick with BFG or Cooper. Ultimately it's your choice, I just wanted to throw out my opinion.

    Are you saying you did or didn't go with the FK29 and 3 degree axle shims?

    Wheeling out west I would go with an MT-R over the KM2. the KM2s don't have a super stong side wall. The MT-Rs are a great tire until they get wet/muddy and you need to climb a rock they have almost no grip. At least that has been my experience.

    Good to know about the MTR's, I've actually ripped wide open the side wall on my KM2 front diver before I think on a curb...

    After 2 short(well shorter) deployments the wife and I decided to finally PUT THAT OME ON!
    Well the front was a huge pain in the neck but it rides great even without the plate bumper yet! Love the height increase, not too high where the wife can get in and out easily without steps (until I can swing the cash for a new set of wheels and tires).
    I haven't had any vibrations while driving, I didn't use axle shims or the FK29?!? Anybody else have that experience?
