In the near term I figure I'll look into the RRO leveling kit (when I need an alignment) to get another inch or so.
I guess I'm just a little frustrated that I have the factory ORA skids and it looks like as soon as I get in a tough spot, I'll smash up the front plastic sump cover (assuming I actually take off the lower air dam.) I point this out because I'm an more of an "accidental" off-roader than "on-purpose". I hunt and fish a lot and go to unscouted places, that may or may not be tough terrain. Just a little venting...
You guys in the States will be happy to know that the arse has fallen out of the Aussie dollar. Not long ago it was about parity but now it's worth only about 73¢ USD. My plastic belly pan ripped off just driving on sand a bit too hard. I now have the Chief products. I've taken the front air-dam off so many times the lugs on the side have break off. Anyway, it is now so damaged I'm not using it anymore.
