I have been looking around this site for awhile and am finally getting around to posting. There are some really nice trucks here and I am very jealous. I have a 2002 Toyota Tundra V8 Access cab TRD 4x4 with 50,000 miles I have owned since new (got deployed to Iraq, hence the low miles). I was going to get a new truck, but really don't want to spend the $20,000+ on a new vehicle and I own this so insurance is cheap and no car payment is nice. It is stock with the exception of an Amsoil bypass filter and a set of FJ Cruiser steel wheels. I am going to get an ARB Sahara bar and want to lift the truck no more than 2". The 265/70-17's have been a decent size for me and will eventually go to a more aggressive tire in that size. So I am trying to decide how to get there. There are the Bilstein leveling shocks, the Bilstein coil overs BTS-7514, IVD Coilovers, or the OME shocks (mixing shocks and springs from various years) from the Tacoma I have seen people running and will probably do the tubular upper a-arms. I am leaning towards Bilstein coil overs because they are half the price of the IVD's (Donahoes), but am concerned they aren't very good and won't support the Sahara bar. I also like OME stuff, but they aren't actually made for my vehicle and I won't be able to adjust the height. Will get custom rear leafs at some point too. Basically looking to make my vehicle more sutable for light four wheeling (fire roads etc.) and highway travel while loaded with camping equipment, dirt bikes, scuba gear etc. Price isn't really a limiting factor, but if I can get the same result for less, I am all for it. I hope this makes some sense and any info would be great.
