    Wow....what a wait.....got my complete OME kit from ARB Canada the last week of August. For 7 weeks all I could do was look at the parts because the D6XL AAL's were on backorder from Austraila.

    So....Tuesday is the day it goes on....my saggy ride issues should be gone!

    This wait was was toooooo loooong even for an old Taco owner like me

    Just hoping my lift is not too high and my new 31x10.5x15 BFG AT's do not look too small and wimpy.

    I do alot of my own wrenching but leaving this job for my mechanic cause I will probably hurt myself!!!

    I will take some before/after pics.

    Then I will put on a 500lb load and do some mild wheeling to break the little truck in.

    881's and new pacs with AAL might be a little stiff for this tiny truck but it is my work truck so we will see.

    When I need a comfy ride I take the Tundra!

    We got the 885s & Dakars with out AAL and gave us 3" front & rear. Great ride on & off road. Will be putting on 265/75/16s (31.65" x 10.43") a lot of members run that size and they look good.

    Great ride much better than stock. Feels fine at 85mph with stock UCAs (professional driver on closed course)

    Still need new wheel well fillers.

    Lift install done...loving the OME suspension...great control, responsive as well as comfortable!

    My front went up 2" which is fine.

    Rear went up 4"...bit high but should settle

    These #' are for a reg cab with very worn out stock suspension.

    Pic right after the lift...no load in bed

    Some pics after 150 miles with 500lbs in the bed and a bit of flexing!
