    Installed my lift Saturday. 5100's on all 4 corners with OME 886 coils and a single AAL in the rear. Fronts are set at zero. I also left the sway bar off.

    I forgot to order a top plate spacer to account for the notorious taco lean, so I zapped one out on the plasma table, 1/4" aluminium. Drivers side to passengers side are within 1/8" of each other, pretty pleased with that!

    Center of hub to bottom of fender is 23" in the front and 24" in the rear. On 265-75-16's I'm 37 1/2" from the ground in the front and 38 1/2" in the back.

    Impressions one day in:
    Handles the bumps a "little" better, It feels very similar to stock as far as this is concerned. There is a noticeable but not excessive increase of body roll when cornering.

    This is a good reference for me. I've got the same model year and tires as you, with 5100's all around. I kept the factory coils on the top notch and did a 1" block (I know, I know) in the rear. Lately I haven't been satisfied with the height and am looking to do almost exactly what you've done. Are you worried about the AAL squeaking or giving you other issues? I was and that's why I went with the block, but now I think it's leaf time.

    If they start squeaking I'll turn the radio up! I personally went with the AAL because I wanted a little more hauling capacity but didn't want to spend the money for a whole new leaf pack.

    We did one side of the rear leaving the pack in place using ratchet straps. I can see why this might be quicker of you were practiced at it. Effectively tho it was way faster to just rip the pack out, throw it on the tailgate and install the AAL and then put the whole assembly back in. This is how we did the other side and it went much smoother IMHO.

    That’s how I do them all now, instead of leaving the leaf pack in. Much easier that way. It’s so hard getting enough room between the frame and axle to get the new centering pin in.

    I wish I could do that myself, would be a fun project. I don't have (a) tools, (b) work space, or (c) talent.

    What brand AAL did you buy and do you need longer 5100's in the back with that set up? Why did you go with 886 coils and not 887 or 885?

    I joined the knob crowd today. They fit really good. I had to get pliers to pull one off to see if it would fit on the radio knob. They fit but not very pleasing on the eyes.20180108_123503.jpg

    This was exactly the issue, we had to use a ratchet strap to pull the top leafs up and it was honestly a giant PITA.

    All the parts were from @Wheeler's Off-Road Inc including their own house brand AAL, BIL 24-239370 Front Bilstein 5100 shocks & BIL 24-186728 Rear Bilstein 5100 shocks.

    I told them what I wanted to accomplish and they gave me several options to do what I wanted.

    I had them install the springs on the shocks because spring compressors scare the shit out of me.

    I went with the OME 886 coils because I'm adding weight to the front in the form of a bumper, winch (future) and 3/16ths steel skids. I wanted to get as close as possible to +3" as possible, knowing things will settle a bit but not going over because I didn't want to invest in upper control arms (yet).

    There were no special tools required, I did have to run and get a ball joint puller because I didn't want to risk damaging my rubber boot using a pickling fork. Having a warm, dry place to work on vehicles is nice, I spent too many years laying in a gravel driveway working on stuff! I don't think there is any special talent involved, just lots AND LOTS of forethought and research. This forum in honestly a massive repository of information on our trucks.

    RC nerf bars, OME 887's, 5100's, Allpro Expo Leaf pack. Patches for extra 5HP!

    Front lift is here, waiting on rear shocks and u-bolts. 887’s and 5100. Should be an upgrade in ride quality over the pro comp lift I’m running now. Plus the addition of the all pro expo leaf pack. Can’t wait to get it installed.

    Did you get a 1/4" top plate spacer?

    Installed the Decked system yesterday. Not the best idea I ever had installing it in single digit temps in a ingested garage but I couldn’t wait. I couldn’t be happier with the ease of installation and the increased storage space AD5CFDC3-9137-48DE-AD02-001DEE39390B.jpg79392684-3816-4354-BC2D-309F8005303F.jpg 1BD05C57-DC1E-4AF9-978B-39D65E5AAE8A.jpg

    So in preparation for commuting a lot this semester (gonna be ~12,000 miles by the end of it) I decided to change my spark plugs, clean my MAF sensor, and clean my throttle body. Most of it went down without a hitch, besides a bolt to a coil boot that snapped in half. This was my first time messing with anything in the engine and I have to say it was much easier than I anticipated. From start to finish it took about 3 hours. I like to think that I'm mechanically inclined, but made sure to read a bunch about these processes first.

    Started on the passenger side by taking the air intake out and eventually the whole air box out and then cleaned the MAF sensor.
    IMG_2516.jpg

    This was the throttle body before I cleaned it. Didn't think it looked too bad until I looked past the butterfly. All black and nasty back there.
    IMG_2519.jpg
    After I cleaned it.
    IMG_2520.jpg
    Definitely had some nasty shit back there.
    IMG_2522.jpg
    This is the bastard that snapped in the engine block. I about had a heart attack when it happened cause I can't have my truck down for maintenance. Thankfully enough of the end was sticking out to where I could get some needle nose in there to get it out. Went to the hardware store and got a replacement for only 88 cents.
    IMG_2524.jpg

    There she is installed. Hopefully not having the little flange piece isn't a big deal.
    IMG_2523 (1).jpg

    So after all this, I go to start the truck and it takes a few seconds to crank up. First attempt was nothing and then the second time it started and ran high for a little while. About 2500 RPM. I'm assuming this is due to excess throttle body cleaner so I'm not worried about it. What I am worried about is the engine code I'm getting now. My Ultragauge is telling me I have a pending P0300 which is a random cylinder misfire I believe. Sometimes when I start the truck the maintenance light flashes, and sometimes it doesn't. Have any of y'all had this happen before? I drove ~5 miles around the neighborhood and didn't feel or hear anything funny. I read sometimes the truck will shudder or knock with this code present, but I didn't notice any of that. Just wanted to see if y'all have any advice on what I should do about that.

    Ignore the maintenance light. That's just a light that will become lit every 5,000 miles to remind you to do an oil change. It's not linked to any systems in any way. As far as the code, I would clear it with the UG, and see if it comes back. Did you gap your spark plugs before installing them?

    That was my first thought too, but I changed my oil less than 2,000 miles ago so I thought it had to do with the spark plugs. I did gap all of them to be within spec before I installed them. Forgot to mention they were the factory Toyota ones (90919-01235) that I bought from the dealer.

    If you gapped them and your truck is running fine, I'd clear the code and see if it comes back, and then go from there.
