    Going to install the OME full lift tomorrow, which includes new front coilovers, diff drop, 1.5" rear blocks, and rear shocks. Does anyone have any tips or valuable info that would help me out? I have installed a couple of lifts on Jeeps, but never a Tundra.
    Thanks

    Not that hard. Hardest thing is trying to get the front strut/coilover in. You have to push down really hard on the lower control arm to get it seated. Second person recommended for that part.

    What Brian said sums it up really, that should be the hardest part the rest should go smooth. As if you wont but please post pics with specs as I am looking at that kit as well but with the Dakar pack for the back.

    Thanks for the info guys, it made things easier.
    Got everything on last night at about 1am. Front end aligned this morning.
    Cleaned it up today, got dark before I got any pics. Will post some tomorrow.
    I am VERY happy with the way it all turned out.
    Going to put on the hypertech speedo calibrator tomorrow.
    Here is one pic from yesterday eveving when I started.

    Here are a couple of pics.
    The front view shows how much tire is outside the fenderwell, which turned out the way I wanted.

    I will take some measurements and post soon. Been very busy.
    The OME full lift made the ride 10x better. Instead of a leveling kit, I recommend getting this. Several hundred dollars more but very worth it.

    OME= Old man emu

    Go to http://www.toyteclifts.com and search by your year truck. I believe what he got was the complete kit. I got the ultimate kit.

    Yes, Complete Lift. I got 1 1/2 blocks for the rear. I also paid the extra $110 to have them to mount the coils on the shocks. Thats a lot of money but I hate trying to compress the springs.
    Mine is not a TRD.

    Can you describe in detail how the OME full lift mad the ride 10x better? I am interested to hear your thoughts?

    Thanks!
