My Commander lift OME and 5100

So I just completed my lift and I thought I would share my specs because there seems to be so many combos. Here is what I have

OME HD springs all 4
5100 Bilstein shocks
Front set on minimum lift
1 1/4" wheel spacers
Nitto Ridge Grappler C load 265/70/17---These tires are the most aggressive quiet good riding tires I could find that are excellent in the snow too
Pinch weld modification

Not installed are the JBA A Arms I am ordering because the camber is to far off

Forgot to mention 22" center of wheel to fender opening up front and 21" in the rear

I couldn't agree more, I plan to commute a bunch in it so I didn't want to go crazy on a lift and I also have a vacation home in Lake Arrowhead where it snows and they have off road trails and fire roads to explore

So you went with springs and not the RRO spacers? Why?

I decided I wanted the ride to stiffen up and my front springs seemed to have quite a bit of sag
