OME 3" lift kit

Hey guys! i keep on hearing about an Old Man Emu (OME) 3" lift. Is that an actual lift kit that OME makes or is it just a combo of OME struts, OME springs and some top plates (i think Toytec offers this set up). If it IS just shocks/struts + top plates, would the top plate affect the ride or add more stress to other components. I really want to go with Old Man Emu but i'm not sure how to get the 3" i want . I'd really appreciate any suggestions/answers and thanks in advance!

It is an actual lift that combines OME products. You get the 3" from the coils. In order to get the full 3" you are supposed to run the top plates. However I have ran mine without the top plates for almost 10k miles. I can fit my 285/75/16's. Its a great setup.

Thanks man! How does it ride? Did you ever have the top plates on? Do the plates cause any issues?

Rides great! No complaints. I never ran it with the top plates. However I recently bought the top plates to put them on just for the heck of it. But I just sold my whole OME setup because I bought some Fox coilovers.

Yes I ran the trim packer. Truck sat perfect.

I'm adding the spacers to my rig TOMORROW to make sure I clear my new rubber....=)
x2 on the trim packer. I can clear 285/75/16's without the top plates.
