    What exact kit did you get? Could you post a link to it.

    Please post PICs of before and after.


    I'm pondering getting 32" tires along with a 2.5" kit.

    BTW, what does OME stand for? I know AAL = Add A Leaf.

    alright guys finally got it installed today and took some pics. heres some before and after shots. btw its the 3" spacer in front and 2" aal and rear shock in back. just gotta wait and give the suspension some time to settle for the best look but i love it so here it is in case anyone is wonderin what a 3" lift with stock tires looks like.

    before:

    after:

    so i love the look now. just to throw this out there, it might be hard to tell in these pics but the rear sits a little higher but its just from installing the leaf springs and once they settle down itll look awesome. really nice purchase for the price and i definitely recommend it.

    btw i read about spacers stiffing the ride and what not and when i drove it today after installing it i didnt really notice any stiffness in the ride. personally it rides smoother i think and dont find the "stiffness" unbearable. just my 2 cents. hope you enjoy casue i do :headbang:

    Cool beans. Looks perfect. How long did it take you to install? Was it easy?

    Thanks for posting....:D

    I thought the exact same thing, that it felt "smoother" right after I installed mine. It does actually ride that way on a full tank of gas. But you will notice over about a month or 2 that it's definately stiffer especially when your down around a 1/4 tank.

    Looks Awsome though !!

    Did you go with the pro comp shocks for the rear and stick with the stockers up front?

    This should be what he got. I took some pics of the installation last year when I did mine.
