    I have a OME 3" lift that was on the truck when i bought it, now I want to go 6". What would be the best way to achieve it with out complely buying a entire new lift. But I dont want to sacrifice the ride quality and travel i have now unless for the better. Is there a way to achieve this. I appreciate any help with the matter.

    If there is now way of doing this I will probably just stick with the 3" lift. I just wanted a little more clearance to go wheelin, but as is its quite capable to get through anything around here besides a lake lol.

    Oh don't give me the "Uncle Sam" speech. I'm in the same boat you are. I'm stationed at Cherry point. All you need is a half day on Friday and you'll be back on Sunday. You can swing it. :D

    I am in the same boat. I have the OME 3" lift and want to go more in the future. I am looking at some spindles. They are a little expensive but nice since they are simple and cause no harm to your current geometry.
