    Well, after weeks of reading, stressing, and reading some more, I concluded that the OME lift was the best option for me. My objective is to lift the front approximately 2" or so and have an off-road capable rig, with a good ride. Not wanting to go into major front end changes, I felt the OME was gtg.

    I have had the TSB done on the back end, and as of right now, I am damn near 3" high in the rear. I could have some sagging on my front end, but these bad boys should take care of that.

    My local shop is going to assemble the front coils and struts for $76. Then, I will install the rest.

    Before and after pics are in short order... More to follow....

    I got the complete kit from Toytec. I ordered the 885 springs with it.
