    Great thread, keep 'em coming! Seeing all these pics in 1 spot is a huge help! I have been lurking for the last week or 2 reading and learning about the 3" lift options and the OME kit is what I am currently leaning towards.

    keep the pics coming... im deciding between full OME with 885/dakars or 5100's with 885's and 3in progressive AAL (and 5125s). These pics are great to see.

    ^ Very nice!

    How is the ride with the icons vs 885, particularly over washboard type stuff? I'm assuming you had the 885 on 5100 at the 0 setting? Also, did you get the advertised 2.75" lift of the OME dakar?

    Sorry for all the questions, but your truck looks great with that setup.

    The Front Driver's side is 5/8" lower than the Front Passenger's side depite having an OME trim packer installed. I will be installing a 1/4" top plate spacer to the driver's side, which should give me approx. 1/2" additional lift. Hopefully that will even out the front:

    How is the ride with the 5100/885 at 0" & 1.5" AAL compared to stock driving on normal street and washboard roads/rough terrain?

    I have an All Pro bumper (130 lbs.) and a ATO front skid (70 lbs.) on it now and am putting a Superwinch Talon 9.5i 9100 (100 lbs.) on within the next week, so i think i need to upgrade to the 886's.
    I want to see how much it drops with the winch, i know it dropped with the bumper and skid.
    What do you guys think?

    Yeah you're right. 886 is the way to go with the added business. I have 886s and it dropped when I added my bumper and winch.
