    @Scott B. How's the ride with the 700# on the top clip?
    How much lift did you get?

    End of the month I'm putting in 6112s with the same springs as you.
    I have steel bumpers, winch, extra battery, steel skids, Rock sliders, shell, even a dual fridge/freezer in the back seat.
    I'm looking for 2.5" to 2.75" of lift.
    Thinking top clip might be a harsh ride so one clip down, 4th clip and 1/4" spacer on each side.

    I think it rides fine. Others have been in my truck, and no one has said anything. But, I'm used to driving a truck, so it may be harsh to some where I don't notice it.

    How much lift? More than with the 600 lb springs and stock front end. I have some droop travel left, but not much.

    I have never used spacers, but you have an interesting idea. 4th clip would have less preload, and the spacer would add in any lost lift (not sure there would be any.)

    I'm interested to hear how that setup turns out.

    What do you guys use as a baseline for the lift? I've got 22&3/4" hub to fender now, but thats on eibach performance coils, so not stock. I forget what my stock numbers were.

    No worries. My stock numbers for the rear were 21 3/4” and 22 1/4” now I think I’m at about 24” with an AAL and the overload in.

    Soooo just finished installing the 6112s. They are really nice! Took off my camberg ucas, stripped cleaned and regreased those as well.

    the icon rxt stage two in the rear has me at 24&3/4” hub to fender, and up front with the 6112s I am now 24&1/4”. Absolutely perfect! I am stoked. I know there will be settling but that is awesome. I’ll post up some pics later this evening.
