It had the Revtech (spell) lift from the factory which I think is about a 3 inch lift. I know you can't really tell from the first picture but my ass was sagging pretty bad

i love my set of ome's. I did not install the shims that came with them. I have not had a vibrations or problems at all. Glad you like em... my 2010 with 5k also looked like the springs sagged way too much. I love the height it added and now am able to load the bed up with some heavy stuff and able to handle it.

How do the Dakars stack up vs. the Stock leaf packs? Is there increased hauling capacity? I would love a set of these vs. blocks or an AAL, but don't want to lose the ability to haul stuff. Thanks!

I think these springs increase your load capacity. I know they come with an overload spring for when you load up the bed. Someone please correct me if I am wrong.

Hell yea gear! It looks mean man! We need to hit a trail soon. Me and Cortland were talking about that today...maybe a Sedona trail. It'd be nice to get outta town for a day and soak up some scenery
