Thats what I thought, Qudratec under-rates the OME kits at a height of 1.75 inches, but in reality when I installed mine (medium load duty) , it really is 2.5 inches (depending on what comfort level you want) the heavy duty version is 3-3.5 inches. But apparently they also do sell these "Trailblazer" kits that go up to 4 and 5 inches for around $800. I am not sure what it comes with though. If it doesn't come with the Old Man Emu shocks, you definitely want to spend the extra to get them haha!

Heres the link to the "Trailblazer Kits"

go die in hell, i hate you now

So many people to thank here's a start to the list
Spidertrax, Yukon, rustys, warn, branik, PSC, advance adapters, Bad wheels, interco, essentially off-road. And many more

Most of all thanks too Ian Johnson and the xtreme off-road crew for all their work, and 4 wheel to heal for their part in it too.

Also if this is what I think you are saying, no they are built in Australia actually, in my opinion it is the same quality as the US, if not better hahaha!

That is fine lol. If I had money I'd drive down and get it.

Not sure, next time I lift something I'm probably going to use wooden blocks and zip ties.

im really liking the BDS 6.5 LA.

its gonna be clean.... very clean. i like the look of jeeps with a good bit of room between the tires/flares. a 33 will go anywhere i need to go with the jeep lol i do mainly mud so i gonna do 6.5 just for extra height to keep it out of the water and what not.

i forget the person on here, his name was like aaroom or something like that, i know he won cheroke of the month... he has a marron on it BW flat flares and 33s... it looks sexy!!!
