Total Choas or Tires?

Ok so I installed my 885's and OME shocks. I don't have enough money right now to buy tc uca's and tires wih spacers. Whats best to buy first? Also take into consideration Im goin on an offroad trip in a month or so. Will not having the tc uca's limit my offroading such as down travel and what not?

My alignment seems to be the same as stock.

What should i get first?

Not tryin to change the subject, but how do you like the ride of the OME coils/shocks. Im going with that set up this summer. I'd say tires just cuz theres a lot of people here with that lift and no UCAs that think it rides great and dont have allignment issues.

I love it. Im glad I listened to everyone. It rides awesome. I havent been offroading yet but looking forward too. You know the little gutters that run across the street in housing tracts? They are also they when you enter a housing tract. Just the little dips the water flows in? Well with my stock setup, when I would be turning as i go over one my truck would kind of rock me back and forth. You pry know what I mean. Its normal. But with this setup, I rock way less and the shocks soak up a bunch of the hit. Just a small example of why I like them and how Im gonna enjoy them

I went the other way around. I did tires after lift because I wanted to get off-road asap. The stock Bridgestone H/Ts just would not cut it. I do plan on replacing the UCAs soon but I personally thought it could wait.

What kind of wheeling are you doing?? I haven't had any issues the HT's taking the trails and obstacles I drive.

i say tires, caster is not a tire wearing angle especially if you do a lot of straight driving. t/c uca's correct caster and will only wear your tires in extreme turns for long periods of time.

There is a good mix here in New Mexico; mountainous, deep sand, rocks and that could just be on one trail. I like to do a little bit of everything. I was actually surprised as to how well the HTs did I just felt more comfortable putting a good set of ATs before UCAs.

Fair enuf- I just had some issues with my HT's and some 10inch deep mud today. 15-20 mins later and some creative driving my truck is dirtier than ever and I'm free.
