So here I sit still waiting for my OME lift to be shipped. I ordered it almost a month ago now. On the other side I just purchased a 1st Gen Supercharger. I will be getting a hold of URD to order the 7th injector kit next and possibly beefing up the transmission before that mod goes on. I will keep updating pics as the build goes. WOW is this site costing me some money. All is good...

Here is the 1st Gen supercharger. Talked with Gadget today and I will be ordering the 7th injector kit by the end of the month.

Marco from Downsouth Motorsports shipped out my OME kit as well so I will be putting it on soon (hopefully this weekend).

Finally got the OME kit in today. Hopefully will be installing that this weekend. Went out tonight and started rewiring the control plug for the winch. I am mounting the control box under the hood and the plug for the control in the cab in front of the 4-wheel drive shifter. Looks good so far, just hope I can get it done before this weekend. I will post pics when complete.

Well today I finally got the winch control box and plug rewired, spooled the rope on and painted the rear bumper. The only chrome left is the fairlead on the front bumper and I will leave that alone.
Got the OME kit sitting in the garage waiting for a couple of days to install that.
Took some pics of the mods but now I can't locate the usb cable to download them. I will keep looking and post as soon as I can find the damn cable.

Got the lift finished today. Looks great.

Took me and a buddy about 4 hrs and 12 cold beverages. Very simple install, even without destructions . The only thing I don't like is that the front is still sitting about 1 1/2" lower. So I guess I will be calling Wheelers and ordering the trim pack kit. I did order and install the longer studs just in case it did come up short on the front and of course it did. As I am sitting here typing the UPS man shows up with the bushwackers so I guess I will be up tonight to install them.

I'd say the rear end will settle down to a level stance after some time.

Judging off your Cv joints, you definitely have room to bump up with a trim if you'd like.
