    I would keep away from a spacer lift if you can afford it. That said I am running an OME setup and don't mind it. I Have never heard terrible things from revtek but don't know about trux.

    spacers arent as bad as most say but for the same amount, you can get 5100s and have a much better setup

    one thing i also see in common is the stock billies... maybe the shock shaft on them is a weak point:confused:

    that top one is OME


    EDIT: and the middle one is busted in two different places. but yeah, maybe stronger shocks with spacers would work better

    so someone went ome and top spacer? no wonder its destructed...

    still the 5100s are best for the money. DSM quoted me less than 300 for shocks front and rear
