Nice! How does it drive?


Drives great :)

Still gotta center the steering wheel as it's off about an inch, but can't find my tie rod tool set and don't wanna mangle the drag link with a pipe wrench :hmm:

With the added travel, I was able to hit 30mph on the beach with ease (only 10mph tops previously)


Let's talk about that exhaust in the first set of photos. What's going onthere! I like it!


Replaced the muffler last week and didn't want a tailpipe, so I just hacked the output pipe and made it a turn down using an adapter sleeve and a couple of clamps

What exhaust is that and how does it sound? There's stuff rattling around inside my LX's muffler and it's starting to annoy me.:bang::)

It's a typical Bosal replacement, however, I've had a few of these and this one seems to be of much better quality than the previous ones :hmm:

There are slight differences and fitment was actually very good this time around :oops:

It's tight and doesn't rattle (for now), but only time will tell :meh:

On the others, the brackets were in the wring place and I had to cut and weld for it to line up :bang:

Great thread with lots of good info! Blew an airbag at some point and just ordered new. Didn't know or try to get replacement from Airlift.
My OME 2" heavy is old and probably a good 10-15 years old and needs replacing. Like you I have a lot of weight in the truck. Have liked the OME and leaning toward the J setup for the weight.
