OME lift results with new wheels

So, I recently added the OME lift HD and new wheels on my Commander. The rims are 17x8 XD Spy series rims with +18 offset and the tires are 265/70/17 Nitto Terra Grapplers. No rubbing and no pinch weld mod. I also added the 3/8" strut spacers and Matt's 1/2" rear spacer. Overall I'm definitely happy with the new look of my Commander. No more looking like a mini van and finally looks the way it should of out of the factory. Another reason to be exited to return home.

To be honest I'm not sure if it was leveled without the spacers because I got both front and rear spacers put on with the lift. From the research I did for most people it did level, but some claimed the front to be higher. I added the spacers because I wanted just a little bit more cushion for the tires and the wheel wells without getting the 4 inch lift.

Thank you. Why I am curious is because I ordered same lift and the main reason was is to get my xk leveled without adding any extra items. I am aware of what other saying about that left an some says it level the xk and some no. Anyway. Congrats for your xk it looks great.
