    Work in progress, but installed so far; 265/70/17 Duratracs, Spidertrax, OME885X coils with OME lean spacer, OME N140S and N182 shocks, Wheeler's 1.5" 3 Leaf Progressive AAL (kept the overload), LR UCAs. TP14 spacers
    [​IMG]

    What did you put up front & what did you get?
    LR UCAs, N140S shocks, 885Xs, trim packer, and TP14 spacers = 2.75" lift
    What did you put in back & what did you get?
    N182 shocks, Wheelers 3-leaf 1.5" AAL with overload installed = 1.25-1.5" lift
    Are you running trail armor & how much lift did you loose or what did you do to regain/maintain lift?
    No armor
    Tire & wheel specs & rub or what you did to eliminate rub.
    265/70/17 Duratracs on Sport rims with Spidertrax wheel spacers. Very minor rubbing on the mudflaps at full lock in reverse...not enough to concern me
    Are you still running a sway bar?
    Sway bar is still installed. If I was going to offroad more I would consider pulling it.

    FWIW, I had stock UCAs prior to installing the spacers (e.g. <2.5" of lift) and my truck handled like crap because the caster was only 1.3* which is still "in-spec". Alignment numbers after the LR UCAs are in my build thread....handled 100% better. Never regretted investing in them.

    It looks a little "bro'ed" in the the picture because of the slope of my driveway. I wound up with about 0.5" of rake.

    My 4Banger AC is lighter than your V6 DCSB Pre which is why I get 3" from 885s.


    Jonny nice looking DCLB, the light almost makes it look like a DSM.

    If you have OME post a pic or two & tell us what you got.
    tons more pics in my build thread. :)

    What did you put up front & what did you get?
    > OME 90000 NitroCharger Sport FrontShocks
    > OME 885 Coils - no top plate spacer
    > Light Racing UCA

    slightly less than 3" but I didnt measure that close.

    What did you put in back & what did you get?
    > OME N182 NitroCharger Rear Shocks
    > OME CS047 Dakar Leaf Spring Set -coated with ez-slide
    > OME FK29 Driveline Carrier Bearing Drop

    somewhere around 3" but again, havent measured that close.
    also have a slight rake still, which I like.

    Are you running trail armor & how much lift did you loose or what did you do to regain/maintain lift?
    no armor.

    Tire & wheel specs & rub or what you did to eliminate rub.
    > Stock Sport Rims
    > LT 285/70R17 BFG AT T/A KO
    > 1.25" Spidertrax Hubcentric Spacers

    trimmed the plastic alot and removed the front flaps. skipped the cab mount chop. no rub 99% of the time on-road.

    Are you still running a sway bar?
    yes, with a relocate. felt weird with the bar off.


    if you have specific questions, pm me or ask in my build thread. :)

    i have very minor rubbing towards the rear of the front fender (near the cab mount) it only rubs in reverse, or if i go up my drive way on an angle too fast. no rubbing on the fender or wheel well towards the front of the truck. (my alignment specs are not what i want them to be at my caster is at 1.4 and will get them to move that up to 2.8+++ probably this coming weekend, that should alleviate some the rubbing issues near the cab mount in reverse.

    i trimmed very very very little to hold me over till i get my second alignment. trimmed small pieces off the fender and wheel well lining near cab mount so far

    havent wheeled it yet so i dunno whats gonna rub off roading

    I think that will make it rub more becaues it will move the wheel farther back.

    I agree but some just do the front for UCA clearance.
