    Anyone know who makes a leveling spacer or lift spacer for my 5 lug with a matching AAL?
    I don't want one in the spring I would like to keep the front ride comfort.

    The readylift is pricey but seems to be my only option. Is their any way to keep the factory shocks? If not I guess I will get some OME's.

    I wish the fat bobs lift was cheaper and made of different materials and they gave you an option of different shocks since I have a preference to the OME's.
