Bought my 16 off the lot in Oahu, Hawaii in June of 16. It stayed stock for a while since shipping to Hawaii is outrageous. Once I moved back to the mainland (Florida), I started my mild, weekender build.

Bone stock, wheeling at Kaena Point, Oahu.

Suspension: OME Nitro Chargers F&R (Soft) 886 coils, Dakar Standard Leaf Pack, SPC UCAs, SpiderTrax Spacers, 285/75/16 Falken WPs, CBI T3 Full Hoop Bumper. I've got a 9k winch that's going in too.

I would go steel over aluminum. If you’re that concerned with weight you should’ve bought a Miata

Added a 9k winch today and cleaned up those horrible cuts from the original install and added trim to them.

Installed an UltraGaugeMX 1.3 to monitor the vitals, especially the Trans temps while towing..

I’m looking to add some height to my TRD off-road and are looking at OME. I was wondering if they are comparable to the stock Bilstiens or even better as far as ride goes on and off road. Also what kind of lift did you get out of it?

Sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you! As far as ride quality.. it rides like a caddy even with the 886 springs. I had 5100 on my first gen tacoma, they were nice, but the stem is very thing for a bigger truck like 2nd and 3rd gens. The OME stems are way bigger. I went with OME NitroChargers (soft valving) 886 springs NC if my bumper and winch, Dakar Standard leaf pack in the rear and SPC uppers.. I'm love the ride.. just with the front coil over were adjustable.
