    Yes, another thread about lifts. :)
    I know a lot of you swear by the billies, but how does the OME 3inch lift kit compare? better ride, worse, no difference.
    I am also considering doing either Icon or FOX coilovers up front
    Any input would be greatly appreciated
    Thanks, Jared

    Most love the OEM kit. It is all designed to go together so everything is compatable together.

    OME springs have a higher spring rate than the stock springs, so the ride will be firmer than simple shock replacement.

    As always, how do you use your truck? OME is better suited for heavily laden truck venturing far off road. Bilsteins will fade sooner in heavy off road usage.

    I love my OME kit. The ride is a lot firmer on road and works is awesome offroad except for the really big hits. It's all about what you like because everyone's opinion differs, read read read and then make a decision. I was on here for 5 or 6 months researching before I finally pulled the trigger.
