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

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.
