    Finally got my OME 3" lift on. I was going to wait till I got new tires to post pics but I can't wait. I also wanted others to see the difference more or less with the added lift and stock tires.

    Want to thank Bakerla, Nightwar, and Samsung for all their help and guidance. I could not have gotten this done without them.

    OME Complete lift with top plate spacers
    885 coils
    Toytec AAL in rear
    OME shock on all 4 corners
    Light Racing UCA's
    Spidertrax 1.25" wheel spacers

    Sorry I didn't take any specific before pics and didn't get to take measurements. So far the ride is awesome. There is alot less body roll when turning and the truck seems more "sure footed" if that makes any sense. Alot less sag when the bed is loaded. I never got the TSB done so I know that does not apply to everyone. So far Im happy with the results. Will post more picks once new tires are put on.

    Looks good I went with OME also but got the Dakars instead of the AAL.
    I'm also still running stock tires. Won't get my new ones (265/75/16) until next year.

    you'll have to do some serious trimming if you don't have a bumper. correct me if i'm wrong.

    I know I will have to trim inside the front fender on the front bumper and eventually do a cab mount chop. That should be about it. Anyone else want to chime in?

    looks nice! Looks just like my truck. I might try to put 255/85's on mine if they will fit. Got to get rid of the stock tires.

    Beautiful truck man.

    I noticed you put a sheet of paper over your license plate in one pic but missed it on the last one. Just a heads up.
