I just installed the DPG OME Ultimate kit with a mechanic friend. Everything worked out great and I love the ride.

One question I have is does everyone else really torque the body bolts down to 30-35 ft pounds like the jks and rokmen video says? The jks pucks are bulging more than I would have expected. On the original install anti seize was used. My rig is not rusty at all and the factory bolts were pristine. And we used my mechanic friends super expensive torque wrench from snap on so I know the torque values are accurate.

I torqued mine to 30.. It seemed like a lot on a few of the body lift pucks, but everything worked out
