    Bracket should work fine. Personally I would go a bit bigger than 1" tube for the crossmember. Doubling it up like you said would take care of that, but why spend the effort to double it up when you could just use something a bit bigger to start?

    Running 33s w/ 4.56 on a manual transmission. Stepped up from 4.10. Will be doing some testing later today but driving across town, speedo says 40mph, nav unit says 38mph.

    When I had the 4.10s, speedo would read 40 and the nav unit would bounce between 41 and 42.

    Well mainly because I have 2 20' sticks of 1" already laying at my house. If I decide that it won't look good or it doesn't feel strong enough then I could use the bender at work and make it out of 1-3/4" heavy wall round tubing, but its more of a hassle to go that route.

    All of this. I ran 882s with stock bumper for awhile and everything was fine. CVs had some angle but nothing bad, to be expected when lifting a vehicle without dropping the front diff.

    When I added an Elite bumper to the front, I added 10mm top plate spacers to account for the new sag. That's when the spindle started hitting the coil. Fixed it with aftermarket uniball UCAs. When I add the winch and skids probably going to replace the 10mm top plate spacer and add the Toytec 1/2" one then call it good.

    Somewhere in there, I have to start weighing down the bed to keep it level. :)

    For the gasket sealer on the deckplate mod, sensor-safe sealant is recommended because the fumes when curing can interfere with the MAF sensor and cause rough running. However, if you leave the AF box and hood open and let the sealant fully cure before running the truck, you should be fine.

    Read it on a bunch of sites and places when i was looking closer at OME stuff about 6 months ago as Ben as looking at picking a new front coil.

    Many sources said the 882 is no longer recommended as the coil is so tall it prepossesses so much that it pulled the shocks basically to the max. Maybe they changed the shocks now but either way everyone was saying that the 883 coils where the better option to go. they were the same free standing height at the 881s but had a much higher coil rate to take the weight. Add the 10mm trim pack and you'd get 3'' no problem as well.

    Just what i found when doing research on all the coils. :notsure: I do also know that lots of people still have run 882s with no problems. And some have had problems. Either way, i am pretty sure that OME doesn't recommend the 882 anymore now that the 883 is available.

    I really think that the 882 vs 883 debate is redundant. I'm very happy with the 883 on the N91s shocks but if I had been shipped 882s by mistake would I know the difference? No. Taking lift out of the equation, since I run no sway bar, the extra stiffness is nice to have.
    I think Monte is referring to a case where a guy had the 882 and for some reason they had apparently maxed out the length is the nitrocharger shock and so it rode like crap having no travel. It was an odd case that I don't recall the resolution too but I think it was user install error.

    I think part of it Monte is that the 882 is first gen specific and the 883 was originally for the fat gen but people began using them on these trucks any ways. Add a heavy plate bumper, winch with steel line, and even though the 882 are plenty tall, you might start pushing the limits with the spring rate. Key word, might ;) perhaps the 883 overall has had fewer issues with weight capacity.

    I found more then one case where people had issues with 882s and several where they said they called OME and they said they didn't recommend em..but who knows..

    Either are fine i think.

    Aaaaaaaaaaand that's a great argument why to buy rebuildable/revalvable coilovers with springs that are available in every 2" height and 50 lb spring rate. :)

    I got a few years on you, but it's really not that complicated.
    Be self driven, college education (and keep shit in moderation), and keep the drive through a career path. Handouts only get you so far.
