    Just threw Bilstein 6112s on the front and 5160s on the rear. Also, did the Totec progressive three leaf spring to get 2.5 in the back. It's 1/2 higher in the back and exactly what was looking for. Pics to follow.

    What ring did you set the shocks to and how much lift did you get?

    Looking for your opinion here guys... I have a ´16 TRD OR I´m looking to do a lift on. My plans were to do the Boss lift kit with the 2 inch add a leaf in the rear. That being said, I would also like to add a winch up front which is going to add 100 pounds give or take. I imagine the extra weight up front would cancel out some of the lift up front, and leave me with a lot more rake than planned for. Any thoughts? I´d like to keep about the same rake or even level out a bit while still lifting the entire truck about 3 inches.

    Okay someone school me on leveling kit. So after doing some research, spacer is not a best way on getting truck level as it will not maintain a smooth ride. So I found some Fox 2.0 Coils on Auto Anything site as they are doing 20% off

    http://www.autoanything.com/suspension-systems/fox-2-performance-series-coil-over-ifp-shocks

    • Anyone running IFP Fox 2.02 (front part #985-02-002 and rear shocks part #980-24-670)?
    • Is this a good deal ($900 out the door with free shipping)?
    • Should I be concern of anything before I commit to these?

    ^^^I had fox 2.0 shocks on my truck. They were good but nothing special. I could not tell a difference between them and bilstein 5100s. I dont know if that really correlates to the same performance for the tacoma though.

    FWIW you can get bilstein 5100 struts with OME 885s for 365 from headstrong offroad (+100ish for them installing the coil onto the strut). That would save you quite a bit of cash, unless you just want to run Fox. And it would give you a little adjust-ability on ride height

    The wheels you chose, do you know the backspacing on them? Did they rub with the 285's without a cmc?

    This is the option I was looking at for my 2016 TRD OR, did this change your ride quality, as far as the truck handling on the road and daily driving?

    Your Warranty from Toyota? Yes and no. It will not void the entire warranty just by lifting it. But if something happens and they can pinpoint the failure is caused by the lift you installed, that will void it. They can't, for example, deny you warranty work because your headlight fell out just because you lifted it.
