Thanks! Yeah so far the OME is quite nice. It was very stiff at first, but even after putting only a few hundred miles on it, it has softened up a ton! The front really does soak up things in the dirt a hell of a lot better. And the rear is actually softer than stock. Even with the AAL. But it holds more weight, so best of both worlds!

Thanks. I like them a lot. I thought they would be brighter but they are a hell of a lot better than stock. And easy to install as well.

Hey man REALLY like the truck and the mods...thinking of getting an '02 without a reciever hitch, recommend any specific brands for the reciever? Id like one that has a shackle attachment...mind posting pics of yours?

Thx

Yep! It came with a locking pin. Although I don't really like the way the lock feels/is sealed up. I'm probably going to use my own nice locking one or just a standard pin without lock. I'll only have it on when I'm offroading, otherwise I'll have a 2'' ball in there.

So today I found out my truck might look good with bronze wheels. What do you guys think?



...In all seriousness, I had to get towed out of some mud by a decked out subaru hahaha. I slid into a deep rut and was immediately up to my bumpers in mud. Time for some meaty 33's I guess

Thanks! Although after washing it today, I realized why I don't like going through mud...

And for those of you who were wondering about the receiver shackle, here's a picture. I know I don't have the pin in all the way. I put it in just to take the picture.

I'm not sure which brand it is. I got under it and looked but the only words I saw on it was the weight capacity.

More than likely it's Reese, that's what came on my 02 and what the body shop replaced it with when I had a fender bender

Sway bar on or off? My 883s were firm at first but now they are perfect. I hope yours are the same.

I have no clue haha. I think it's supposed to be a grab handle. It flips down. It was there when I bought it. There's a little indentation in the shell that its molded into.

And yeah I'm lucky to be up here. We've had 3 weeks straight of 70-75 degree weather which is not common so I'm loving the summer so far. We had I think 10 days last summer that were over 65 degrees so this is awesome.

I left it on. I'm thinking of taking it off but The truck still feels a little unstable while turning with speed and I don't know if ill like more of it without the sway bar

The ride has softened a little. But I've only put around 500 miles on it so far so it should get better.

Really? Man mine feels level in turns. I don't go fast around corners so maybe my driving style is part if it. Mines off and I'm glad it's off. Best supporting mod to the 883 s I think.
