    Is the ome really worth the extra $4-500 for a .5 more of a inch? It seems like there aren't too many people on here with the ironman? Seems like its pretty solid kit to me. Suggestions?

    idk ive only heard great things from OME kits, but aren't they made by the same company?
    you may get more components from the ome lift system, higher rated springs, etc.

    GO OME!!!!

    a buddy of mine has ironman and he says it blows!

    he got it early this year and he's already looking to switch...

    i've had OME since 2006...just recently swapped my rear for fox resi's, but still running OME nitro with 886 coils up front and my dakar leafs from '06 in the rear...new shocks in the front but coils are going strong still


    don't mess around and do it right the first time

    :woot: Yes I am. I like the IronMan. I haven't rode in a truck with the OME, but I love the ride it gives the truck. Very simple to install as well. Problem is you have to get it put together somewhere unlike the OME you can order it built.

    no...even with the 886 coils my alignment specs were fine within range..

    they can help, but are not needed

    "Within range" is somewhat of a broad statement. I had shitty alignment with 885's and stock uca's.

    don't have numbers...always had my buddy who works at toyota align my truck and he never noticed any reason for concern....given i have an arb and warn m8000 in the front of my truck pulling it down, but the alignment numbers he was able to get were within the factory ranges

    so maybe not everyone's truck is the same, but i had OME on the truck since '06 and never had alignment issues...just recently went with camburg ucas but that was not because alignment issues

    and before i had the 886 (moved up when i got the arb and winch) i had the 885 coils (see my build page...first post has some before pics)
