Just ordered OME 3"

Hey gang,

Just ordered the OME 3" kit from Toytec for my '11 DCSB. Had a few questions, Ben at Toytec hooked it up with some good information. OME shocks front/rear, 885s, top plates, and 2" AAL for the rear. Pretty stoked.

I'll be getting light racing UCAs as funds allow, and eventually 285s with an aftermarket rim of some sort.

Should be here in a few days. Hoping Santa doesn't bring me any vibrations/shudders!

I'll keep everyone updated. Thanks TW for all the valuable info! Truck should be looking BA in no time!

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

As long as everything is torqued (U bolts to 80#, etc.) you shouldnt have any vibes. Post pics when you get it all installed!

Awsome. Post us some before and after pics. Just received 1 1/2" aal from toytec myself to level the 2" front lift. Got my BHLM ready to install also w/powdercoated stepbars. Man my wife nailed this Christmas. Same as you wheels and tires next. What are you leaning towards there?

285s for sure. More than likely duratracs as they have gotten good reviews and look pretty aggressive for an all terrain. However, a friend said he can get "the hook up" on Toyos. They are a heavy tire and are pretty expensive, so if "the hook up" means the same price as duratracs or even BFG ATs, I'll stick with the latter.

As for wheels, leaning towards XD addicts (anyone ever seen those?!). I was originally thinking pro comp 7032 but from what I've read a lot of pro comps are on backorder.

My wheel decision changes weekly, so whatever is black and looks good (TWSS) at the time I'm ready to buy is what I'll go with.

What are you thinking about?

Ask and Ye shall receive! The U bolt torque is listed incorrectly. It needs to be around 80 lbs-ft. Not 37

Like the XD Revolvers and unsure about tires. Saw powdwecoated stock wheels like the ones i have on ebay for 499.00 still thinking about those. If Toyo's are offered in white letter i might look into them. I dont have a hook up though.

Pre-lift height measurements (center hub to fender):
Front driver: 19 3/4 in.
Front passenger: 20 1/4 in.
Rear driver: 21 3/4 in.
Rear passenger: 21 3/4 in.

Post-lift height measurements (center hub to fender)
Front driver: 24 1/2 in.
Front passenger: 24 1/2 in.
Rear driver: 24 1/4 in.
Rear passenger: 24 1/4 in.

It is 4 wheel drive. It does look a little nose high at the moment. I am hoping it settles a fair amount. CV's aren't looking too bad. I did not install the front diff. drop included in the kit. I also have the OME CB drop, but didn't install it. I wanted to see if there were any vibes without the drop, which there are, right around 55-65 mph. I'll be installing the CB drop soon, but the vibes really aren't that bad.

Front lift numbers seem high, but I did buy the shocks/springs/top plate spacer/lean spacer (driver's side) pre-assembled from Toytec, so I am confident they are situated correctly.
