    Oahu, Hi
    I have a 2018 OR dcsb and want a 3" front and 2" rear. What kit would I need to order or would this be achievable on a 3rd gen? Will it settle over time? Won't have any weight on the front.

    I would reach out to Eric from Mainline Overland. He is really good to deal with, and he will answer all of your questions.

    An update... I have put about 500kms on the truck, and I am very happy with the ride of the truck. I would say now it is comparable with the OEM ride.

    @Dobinsons Mike I’ll second this. I’ve been reading about and looking at the Dobinsons kit for some time. Would be very interested to know what type of discount you offer. Thanks!

    Finished installing my Dobinsons suspension last weekend. I have to say, it rides like a dream! The only debate is whether I should’ve went with the extended travel.

    I cant recommend these dudes enough. One of the best riding suspension setups for the money I’ve ever seen.

    How big are you guys going with tires with this kit? Mike said 275's but I'm curious what you guys are actually doing?

    I took Eric's advice from MLO... I went with 265-70r-17s. I really like how they look

    I ended up going with 285 70R 17s. They look awesome! If I could go back I may have gone smaller just to avoid the rubbing though.

    After a cab mount chop and a little plastic trimming, it’s not a problem anymore. Definitely really makes the truck look more aggressive in person!

    Top of photo is 285s, and the bottom is stock with the lift.

    No rubbing with the 265-70-17 and set the truck off nice.

    I went 285/70/17 and have no rubbing. I did the CMC just as a precaution but I am not close at all to touching there. I could have left it alone.
