    Was it that bad installing lift I've my got my OME sitting in my shop wondering what I'm fixing to get myself into.Did you compress the springs yourself or have any tips or want to install another one :D.Yours looks nice what size tire and wheel are you running.

    It wasn't THAT bad....read all the threads on here and look at all the pics. I compressed the springs myself with the loan-a-tool strut compressor from AutoZone.

    Make sure you have a couple of floor jacks and we had 4 jack stands.

    One tip....make sure you lift the rear end fairly high to get the axle lowered and have some 6" or bigger C clamps to compress the leafs. Was a pain with 3" and 4" LOL The rear is what was time consuming for me. The front took about 4-5hrs. The rear about 6-7. Now that I've done it I figure I could do it in about 8hrs if I had to do it again.

    Take your time and follow the directions and it's all worth it in the end!

    I'm running 16x8 Mickey Thompson Classic Locks and 285/75R16 Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs

    Good Luck!
