PM Kolak- basically installing the lift and changing the bushings are the same process- so while doing one project, I'm doing both since I'm getting near 90K miles. Its not a lot of stuff, and it was very reasonably priced. I couldn't justify not doing it since I'm already doing the lift.

Mind if I ask how much the bushings are? I'm ordering the superlift from kolak, hopefully, on 5th. If it's not to bad I might do them both as well. I know I can PM, but I'm pretty sure I bug him enough

Congrats, dude! I love my OME. Kolak is the guy to go to for that kit. And I highlighted the most profound part of your post...............

Just talk to Kolak when u order your other stuff. The deals he gives us feel so low that I don't want to quote a price he can't match later. That's his business and how he pays his bills. I wouldn't want to do that to someone who helps us all out so much. He is such a nice guy, he wont mind talking to you at all. Lets just say the bushing are costing me less then the amount of gas I burn in 1 week, and since I was already doing the lift it made sense to do them too.

Oh, and special thanks to Kolak for even asking my mileage and pointing them out, or else I would have never known until something failed and I had to uninstall and then reinstall the lift to change them then.

It looks basically like the bushings are the rubber isolators that sit on each end of the springs. Which is great because 3 of mine were in BAD shape when I changed shocks/stuts last fall. Will be very easy to install too since I'm changing all of the springs anyway.

Thx for the suggestion Kolak!

After some hassle and drama with a different programmer, Kolak is also now sending me a Superchips Programmer to complete the start to my build. I honestly cant thank him enough! His level of customer service and depth of knowledge is far beyond anything I would have expected. Thanks Kolak!

Phase 1 of my build will be completed once all of the parts arrive later this week, and I get to install.

Phase 2 is already in planning, and hopefully will include a new front bumper/winch, skids, some lighting tricks, and a long range CB solution- all being designed for emergency first responder duties and situation support for post disasters (I live in Oklahoma- think Tornado debris clearing to allow real emergency vehicles into effected areas).

Has anyone fully Rhino lined their WK yet? I already found a place to get mine done with factory-like results.

I would love to see someone rhino line their wk. My dads friend had his old original bronco completely rhino lined and it was seriously bada$$!

I work with a guy that drives a fully rhino's new tundra- his dad does it along with some fabricating for a living. It looks so good, you would think it came from the factory like that. I'm really considering it due to the amount of scratches and dents I tend to accumulate on my vehicles running 1st Response. He said is stupid tough stuff, he has had all his windows cracked from hail, but zero dents or marks anywhere on the truck.

I'm looking into it. Oh, and they can color match! Means lots of options on color
