    The price for the kit with 1 inch rear block (it seems they don't offer aal for $10 any more) is $840.63. The price seems to have really gone up in the last year or so. That should still get you under your budget with installation. If you plan to have a shop do it, don't get the front strut/coils pre-assembled. Shops could do it cheaper and include it in the whole installation price.

    OME is a good lift. Go block or add the rear shackles. AAL is too stiff from what I've heard.

    The AAL is recommended for Tacomas but too stiff for tundras.

    i had a deaver AAL on my tacoma and while it was aesthetically pleasing caused my rear end to buck hard over small, abrupt changes in the road. speed bumps were especially bad.
    the other negative to them was the after i got my leafs apart, the AAL installed then everything greased and reassembled it was a matter of time before the leafs started squeaking over every bump large or small. it isn't an uncommon issue i eventually found.
    if i needed rear end lift i would definitely go with a set of coachbuilder's shackles and some new urethane bushings.

    Yep. Not the best ride, but OME is built solid.

    Just depends on what you're looking for in a setup. I've had my boss kit on for just over a year with zero issues or complaints. The boss shocks were specifically tuned for the Tundra.

    I got the carbon fiber insert deom Toytec, but @AFM Graphics makes them.

    The one above mine is a RI grill, correct.

    Anyone else notice the price difference on this lol...

    I have an AAL and it is a slightly stiffer ride but it creates a smoother ride when towing or hauling which is the main reason that I have it.
