Any one running OME 3"?

Im getting my finances in line to get my lift and let it sit until im ready to buy the wheels and tires for my transformation.

I have seen the toytec 3" alumimum spacer lift and for some reason, i think that that would kill the ride quality of my truck.

I did come accross this kit and it seemed logical that it would keep a good ride by replacing everything but adding 3 inches.

My question: am i correct in this assumption or not, what are some alternatives that i should consider when looking to maintain the factory ride just 3" higher

Im planning on running 285 75 16s on 16" steelies (soft 8s) if this makes any difference.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Thats a good kit. Any lift is gonna increase the firmness of the ride. The stock springs are a 540# spring rate, and the OME are 590#, so they are softer than any other lift coil.

so as far as the budget 3" kit goes, this is the way to go?

id venture to guess that the OME kits are a GREAT lower budget suspension setup

The 884's are for the ext. cabs, and the 885's are for the double cabs.....Your choice, though...depends on how much lift you want.
