Lift advice - Ironman stage 2

Hi guys - been a while since Iíve posted. Iím looking to lift my 2016 trail - nothing crazy. I would like to go off-road a few times a year and I love the look. Iím thinking of going Ironman stage 2 kit (with UCA) for $1600 - any thoughts?

My original plan was Bilstein 5100, old man emu springs and some UCA but Bilsteins are back ordered and I would like to get this done this summer.

Anyone have experience with Ironman or should I wait for Bilsteins? My plan is 2.5 front and 2 in back if that matters.

Thanks in advance!

"off-road a few times a year"

Honestly that's too generic to tell. Judging from the wording and the picture, looks like a solid overlanding setup is what you are after. Maybe throw Dobinsons into the mix, they have a variety of shocks from twin tubes to monotubes to monotubes with resi and adjusters. Given your desired height, Eibach is out; you cannot really run their rear shock with a 2" lift and expect good results; it is a short shock.

Btw, I am not sure 5100s will play well with stiff OME springs. They are designed to work with soft stock springs.

They have KDSS and non-KDSS versions, and nitrogen or foam cell pro versions. I have the KDSS foam cell pro with new UCA kit. Been very happy with it. I think the latest kits they sell with a new panhard bar and KDSS spacers to optimize KDSS/alignment. You can buy them separate if you end up needing them to make alignment.

Ironman Foam Cell Pro

Check out this thread I started. I have had mine for over a year and have been off-road a lot. Just ran into an issue the other day with a blown driver side front shock. I emailed Ironman yesterday and they immediately covered it under warranty and are shipping it out. I love the ride quality and so far have no complaints on it. I am a bit disappointed in the shock blowing, hoping it is oddity.

Hi I'm new with the forum but had several toyotas in the past.

I just installed stage 2 ironman foam cell in my 4R off road 2021. Very happy with it. Got about 3 inches. I also got dick cepek 285 70 17 which will be installed nxt week. Need to get rid of those OEM dunlops => they really suck on wet conditions (FL)

I'll be posting pics soon!
