Well, my original plan was to do the complete OME setup front and rear with 614's and UCA. Didn't want to drop the $$$ for that setup so figured I'd do a little at a time.

Order the Ebay SpringForce 3/2 billet kit w/degree shims, add a leaf and diff drop. Picked up the rear OME shocks from Sierra and ordered Coach's +3 shackles.

Product impressions:
Spring force kit seems to be solid. Nice finish. The factory U-bolts will not work with this kit. I had to run out and buy new, longer ones.

Coach's shackles are built like a tank. Finish is excellent. Packaging was beautiful.

OME shocks are really yellow. Attaching pics.

Oh yea, the tires are big. Removed mud flaps and did inner fender mod. Slight rub on body mount in certain downhill 3/4 lock turns. Ride is excellent. Alignment coming Monday.

Still planning on doing OME fronts eventually. I'm sure I'm forgetting something but here goes.

Edited to add - I guess title should say level kit and not lift.

Very nice. Looks like you still got a little rake with the AAL and shackles. It looks nice and aggressive.

A lot of rake. Can't remember my measurements but got approx 4" lift in front with lift + tires and 3.75" in rear.

This is kind of what I was going for. A factory look, just better. Maybe the OME up front will give a little more lift.

Truck looks awesome.

OME (Old Man Emu: Old Man Emu - 4x4 Suspension by ARB)
This is an excellent system: I am planning eventually to go this route.

Rake: from factory the rear of the truck is about 2 inches higher than the front. Some people hate this rake and 'level' their truck by raising their front end.

Yea they rubbed the front inner fender at 3/4 full lock and the body mount. Trimmed front liner so no more rub there. Adding coach's shackles helped with body mount rub and now only get that when turning downhill. If I had another .5" of lift up front it looks like it would clear body mount.

Also, it depends on the dimensions of the Mickey Thompson's. I believe my Nittos are 35.5"
