I dont do much serious offroading mostly cruising down beach trails and some light medium trails. What are yalls opinions on these or do you know of something better. I just want something thats going to last and I wont have to worry about if I have to pay more than so be it although I would like to save money thats why I am leaning towards the RC anyway lets see what you think.
OME is high quality stuff. RC isn't. The price reflects the quality & longevity.
I run the OME kit. I saved my money till I could afford to buy the quality stuff, with spring rates tailored to my rig's setup. A downside for the OME kit is it doesn't include the necessary 1.25" rear bumpstop extensions, it only includes 0.8". But don't worry, setting the bumpstop extensions will only cost another $10 or so.
A 2.5" lift alone is a great setup for 31s & gains a lot of suspension travel. If you want to run larger tires, you'll need some other mods...body lift and/or more bumpstop extension.
Also, check out the RCD kit. They offer a 3" lift kit thats about the most complete i've seen, and with the included Bilstein shocks you can't go wrong.
