2005+ Toyota Tacoma OME BP-51 Internal Bypass Suspension System

Complete 2005+ Toyota Tacoma BP-51 Suspension Kit (OMETAC16BP51B)

Complete 2005+ Toyota Tacoma BP-51 Suspension Kit (OMETAC16BP51B)

Old Man Emu is pleased to release the latest application of BP-51 high performance bypass shock absorbers engineered specifically for the Toyota Tacoma.

Although there are subtle weight differences between the last generation Tacoma and the new generation, with the adjustable nature of the BP-51 the OME engineers have been able to tune and design the BP-51 package to suit both applications. This package consists of 2 front coilovers, 2 rear shock absorbers and 2 fit kits.

The front coilovers have been tuned in both length and feel specifically to the Tacoma and are capable of accommodating setups with and without accessories (bumpers, winch, etc). Specific reservoir brackets have been designed for application specific reservoir placement and also relocation of the sway bar to allow clearance at the spring seat. While the coilovers are adjustable in height, the system has been designed for a 2″ (50mm) ride height increase and a minimum of 2″ (50mm) down travel.

Rear shock absorbers have been tuned in length and valving specific to the Tacoma. To accommodate the large body size of BP-51 a specific lower mount bracket has been developed to provide clearance to the axle. Specific reservoir brackets have also been developed and are included in the rear fit kit. The rear dampers are tuned to match the existing range of rear Old Man Emu leaf springs.

Recommended compression and rebound settings can be found in the supplied fitting instructions for the various spring options available. The fitting instructions include detailed information for correct installation of the shock absorber and reservoir placement.

Never heard of the ARB Off Road Icon’s project? Here is the story – To celebrate ARB’s 40th birthday, the ARB Off Road Icons project was launched. Fans in Australia were given the chance to vote for the 4 most iconic 4x4s in Australia. What were the results? The Toyota 40 Series Land Cruiser, Nissan GQ Patrol, 5th Gen Toyota HiLux and a Land Rover Defender.

After the vehicles were chosen by the voters, the marketing team set out to find the 4 iconic vehicles to purchase, restore and outfit them with the full ARB product line in preparation for touring the Australian 4×4 show circuit and lastly crossing the iconic Simpson Desert!

Of course the USA office didn’t want to be left out of the fun, so we opened up the polls in the USA for everyone to vote for their iconic 4×4. With the results in, the Jeep Wrangler TJ was the clear winner and we set out and purchased a red 2004 Jeep Wrangler TJ. The Wrangler will also be restored, outfitted and will attend 4×4 events around the USA and then shipped to Australia next spring to take part in the trip across the Simpson Desert with the 4 iconic vehicles of Australia.

The Jeep Wrangler is a compact SUV that was designed to uphold the historic legacy of the Jeep brand, while offering a fun, ‘go-anywhere’ vehicle that was well received by enthusiasts and the everyday public.

While Jeep Wranglers and their CJ predecessors never presumed to be luxury vehicles, the TJ generation was a big advancement with additions like coil sprung suspension, safety air bags and a redesigned interior that brought this 4×4 up to modern standards. The 4.0L was the most popular engine choice, having been used by Jeep from 1987 through to 2006, pushing out around 189 hp.

Changes to the TJ’s chassis, suspension and axles greatly improved the Wrangler’s off road capability. The solid front and rear axles, coupled with the highly articulating Quadra-Link suspension setup, allow these vehicles to flex and crawl over almost any obstacle.
