I think sliders, bumpers or anything that will come in contact with rocks should just get painted with some Rustoleum spray paint. So much easier to touch up and so much cheaper.

Perfect, I can handle that.

I gained 2 inches in the front, and an inch and a half in the rear.

There are even a bunch of less expensive options out there. I must be missing something... Please help me!
I run the Dietech brackets as well. They're awesome. I used to run the a pillar mirror mounts and hated them. The mirrors were almost useless for me.

It has 3.5" MC Dualrate springs and the JKS ACOS to get rid of a little bit of a rake that it had. 5160 reservoir shocks, Synergy Tie Rod, Drag Link, Drag link flip kit. Artec truss, Synergy c gussetts. It is close to about 3.75" of lift. 4" of lift and it would explode so I wanted to make sure not to go over.
