Re: LIFT: Pulling the trigger soon.. advice needed

Yeap, that all should work just fine. Plenty of people have been running a similar setup including me. I have the OME HD with 255/75r17 BFG mud terrains and Spidertrax wheel spacers. Just make sure you do the pinch weld mod up front. You will rub with that size tire if you don't. If you plan to wheel it at all I'd do the rear fender mod while you're at it. Plenty of tutorials on it if you do a search. It doesn't take long, I did both mod's in a couple of hours.

Re: LIFT: Pulling the trigger soon.. advice needed

I know of people running the bilstein 5100's or the monroe load levelers for the rears. Idk about the 5125's though. Most just run the OME struts up front. The load levelers might give you a bit more rake because of the coil around the shock to help with sagging while towing. I'm using the OME shocks/struts and they've worked great for me. The ride quality is excellent and I believe they have a bit more extension than the bilsteins. Nick(Kolak) is a dealer for both OME and Bilstein. He's very knowledgable and has the best prices around for our lifts. I'd definitely send him an email and see what he has to say.

Nick's Email:
