    A slew of pricey stuff my wife hates me for.
    I did the lift almost a year before I did the bumper and skid plate. The truck sat dead level. It handled a little stiffer, but who really cares? The upside is that it corners like a champ.

    I experienced some settling after the bumper and skid were installed, and IMO the springs are compressing as OME designed them to. Keep in mind I'm running the 4 door w/ 6' bed and over 400 lbs of armor, so I've got a lot more weight distributed to the center than the standard cab. I'm also planning on a rear bumper as well.

    If you've got back problems or hemorrhoids sell the truck immediately, and certainly don't think about lifting it :D Very rarely will ride quality improve with height, and if it does it cost you a small fortune to achieve it. That's my $.02

    Would you recomend getting the 3 degree shims and the sway bar reloaction bracket with the kit? I am going to order the kit today!

    Yes on the swaybar relocate, shims would have to wait to see if you get vibes post lift.

    OME lift 4x sliders 4x skids
    it's this easy:

    1) measure transmission output shaft angle (@ bearing cup, yoke ect.)
    2) measure drive shaft angle near output shaft
    3) subtract smaller # from greater #, this is your angle. 1 degree is optimal.

    Do the same at the pinion (rear). easiest way to adjust this angle is using shims.

    Lol, whats you hub to fender measurement now? Compare that measurement to the ones in OZ's dakar thread and there ya go. You can remove leafs from the dakars also if you don't want to much lift
