Personally I'd stay away from Optimas now adays. Ever since they are made in Mexico, there have been a lot of quality issues.

So far my Die Hard is treating me right, but it is a bit pricey.

There are other ways of adding belly clearance without lifting your vehicle off the axles...like 40s, 42s, 44s, etc

Carrier bearings while you have the front end apart, well if you run 33" or bigger tire.

It's 3 bolts + axle nut. Not hard at all. Only like $50 a side. And if one is still good, it's not a bad idea to keep in in your trail tool box.
