I usually get 15-17 mpg depending on the amount of city/highway driving.

I didn't install extended brake lines and haven't had any problems. Maybe some of the others on here have more insight on this.

You could easily run 275/65/R18 tires, which are about 32" tall without any major trimming. It may be worth picking up a set of 17" FJ wheels to cut down on the cost of tires though. Tires for 18" rims are generally more expensive. A lot of the guys run 33" at a minimum and have to trim a little more from the inner fenders.

Also, here is a video from this weekend. You can see that the OW kit performs well.

Nice driving! I think I may be sold on the OW/2.0 kit. The lift looks and performs great! Thanks for sharing!

How long do you expect to keep the 4runner?

If a few years only, I recommend not to spend much for the lift and second hand would be OK.

If you expect to drive it till the doors fall off, then invest in something your really want.

I like to anticipate those years w/o a car payment as an upside to justify investing in upgrades now. For instance: In 5 years you will probably need new shocks all around. Why not invest in what you really want now instead of what you will need to get later? When you get an upgraded package now you can shop around and get the best price because you are not under pressure to fix a current problem.

Now you need to practice this over and over until you can say this with conviction to your wife so she will say "That makes sense". Flowers help too...

I tow a boat that's about 4500lb tow weight and need rear suspension that won't be "nose up" with a few hundred pounds of tongue weight... how will the OW 2.0 setup handle this, or would EMU medium be better?

One option - You could add airbags to the coils - Airlift1000. Keeps the butt from drooping when you add weight. That way you can have a softer ride when unloaded and air up when towing. I have these bags and they have worked well for me when towing or just loading up the back.

I have a single air stem to fill with and the articulation of the rear axle doesn't seem to be affected when I tested it on a ramp.

Do you already tow the boat with stock suspension?

Yeah and it's fantastic but people flash me at night, it squats too much.

I know about air bags, maybe a temporary solution but it'd be too much hassle to always inflate deflate as I tow frequent but short trips with lots of no towing in between. I dunno, maybe i could find a pressure i could just leave it at....The OME suspension on my Montero Sport was perfect - little high unloaded, little low loaded but no one flashing me thinking my high beams were on. Wondering if anyone has a setup they've had this experience with...

The 2.0 full kit comes with everything needed. Just tell us you order # and screen name and we include the coilover adjustment wrench. Our price even includes free shipping in the US48 for a complete experience.

The 2.5 kit shocks are valved a bit better for heavier loads, but the 2.0 is a nice step up from stock and will improve towing experience over a stock setup. Our coils are firmer than stock, but not so firm that with no extra weight in the back the ride gets harsh.

You can adjust the front to not lift as much with the OW coilovers. We can also supply rear coils that are taller for people with heavier loads. With our coils the rear only sags 1" with 400-450 lbs of rear axle weight, which is a nice step up from stock.
