Finally pulled the OME trigger

After having our Commander for 8 years I ordered a OME MD lift. Need new tires and want to replace the shocks so I figured it was now or never. Pretty excited and a little anxious about installing it. But this forum has a wealth of info. Should be here in a week or so and I will post some pics.

Well parts are starting to show up. Springs and shocks are here. Hypertech 52001 (used) is on it's way. I was going to go with 245/75r17 but decided to go with 265/70r17 so just ordered some Spidertrax spacers. I've been research the install procedure as well as the pinch weld mod. Hoping to get to it this week while it is still warm up here.

I ordered them on Amazon. Found one set for $77 (open box but look new) and a brand new set for $95.
