Pic of OME 885, Billy 5100, 2 AAL

Hi all,

Couple months ago I've got the OME 885, Billy 5100 @ 0, and 2 leaf Wheeler's AAL installed and I replaced the OL with a deaver AAL, 3 total. I've said that I'll put them up and I'm finally getting around to it. It is perfectly leveled not like the pic since my camera wasn't perfectly horizontal.

I've put about 10k on it and it rides firm but very composed when the road ends and extremely smooth on the freeway. At 5k, I "thought" it was broken in, but it rode completely different at 10k.

No UCA, but anymore lift beyond this is a must have for UCA. No issues whatsoever with bound and rebound.

First 3K, very rough. Kind of like a lowered import. Over speed bumps was harsh enough for me to regret it at times and praying it'll break-in faster.
5K: I thought it had broken in since it was livable by then. Still quite bouncy on highway, borderline unacceptable when you know you need to make a quick maneuver in a "just-in-case" situation knowing that the truck might give out on one corner.
10K: I'm positive it's fully broken-in with care. Very supportive and composed when you travel at speed off road. No float on highways to answer your question. Bound is supple and smooth, rebound is quick and strong. Confident on turns when you push it, very predictable when the back is going give.

Excellent so far.

I thought that 5100 @ 0 with 885's gives about 2.5" of lift. Is that about what you have because your truck looks higher?

885's should get a DC around 2 1/2" of lift , AC's seem to get a tad more

Right after the lift I was getting 3" exact. After the break-in, about 2.8".

eh, .8 sounded good, certainly a fart above 2.75 and under 3" . I'm sure if a bird landed on my hood, it'd sit at 2.75

Sorry to revise this thread, but I am having trouble finding anything about access cabs. My truck is the same as yours but is a 4x4, do you think it will make much of a difference?

No problem at all. It should sit about a quarter to half an inch lower on your 4x4 on the front end because of the weight. Not sure what other mods you have on there that might affect it. But I have a shell. Mechanically, you'll be fine. Hope that helps.

As an update to putting another 60k on this setup with occasional hauling: ride is still great, no sag. The durability is excellent.

Now that I reread your post, you should be sitting at most quarter of an inch lower than mine since its the same 2.7 manual! Nice.
