    What's up fellas, let me start by stating "just my opinion"

    I had the same question and got the same recommendation.

    It all depends on what you do with your ride. Do you go offroad/trails or only see paved roads?

    If only paved roads this is a good way to go. You should purchase an extended rear shock to accommodate the lift. For a better ride quality. Or equivalent to how it rides now.

    If you hit trails/off-road do not go with this lift.

    I feel like most people will say an OME lift gives a great cost / benefit.

    Sure, some like Icons or Fox or Kings better. And in certain instances each of them are likely better (racing vs rock crawling vs daily driving etc etc).

    I do think OME, however, is a cost effective choice that can actually handle off roading, instead of just street riding. There's a bunch of guys here who know specifically which springs / setups to use, ask around, but that's probably where my money is going with my Tacoma or 4Runner when it's time for a lift.

    A few things here and there. Still dreaming up stuff
    I just looked at there stuff. My .02 on this matter. Get something from a company that specializes in Toyota only or really know them. It looks like they just sell mass amounts of kits for everything and I bet you its all china crap too. Just from looking at it. I was not impressed really. I would go Toytech Etc on that one man.
