We have two 100's, both with OME 2.5" heavy lift and no issues

MTSN was talking about rake, not lift and that you should adjust it(Torsion bars) so it sits lower in the front than the back

that is actually the lift I would like to go with eventually.

was also talking about the rake, I don't want to eliminate it completely as I know its needed. I wanted to make it just a little less raked than it appears to be at the moment while I have the stock suspension. I figured if I can lift the front half an inch or so using the torsion bars without causing any issues it would work for a little while.

However I have no first hand knowledge on this just what I have been reading on MUD so if you guys think this is bad idea for any reason please do let me know. thanks.

Looking good! I've got the white belt line too..



Though I saw a white 100 that did black from the beltline down and thought it looked really sharp. I also like how you did your emblems, I need to do that as mine are still goldish.

Nice! I'll swing over later this week and park next to you so you can get a feel for the OME lift and one size larger tires. I'm not really fond of the OME shocks unless you plan to run a good bit of extra weight, but the ride stance looks much better slightly lifted in my opinion.

your 100 looks sweet! exactly what I want to get to eventually. I saw the one that did black from the beltline down a few weeks back or so and cannot find it again but it did look good. Emblems turned out pretty good considering how easy they were to do. really made a difference.

cool, it will be good to compare. I slapped on some tundra rims with 275/65/18's this evening which gives it a little more height.
