I would have gone this route but I down own a OME lift :/ I opted for the RC 2" spacer lift. Kinda glad I went this route as I don't need to get 6" coils for the rear. I will most likely swap the coil and spacer out later on down the road for the JBA 6" coil for a better ride.

Been on CL more looking for some tires. Found a set of (5) 315/70/17 BFG all terrains for $325 and the guy lives right in my area. 2 of the tires are about 80% tread and the other 3 he said are about 50-60% left. Hopefully the guy still has them!

Went and picked up my 35's today! (technically 315/70r17) but same thing haha. Now I'm ready for the rest of my lift and install! Ended up getting some BFG all terrain KO's, all 5 for $325 and they have plenty of tread left!

Has anyone installed the RRO Supersliders? I have been looking at them more and more lately but can't really find any pictures of a set on a WK.

Looks like you have most of your lift. I know the waiting is killing you

Oh it is! In the beginning it was worse but lately I've been finding things to distract me so it's not as bad. Still killing me though haha!

Are you going to do the install yourself or take it to a shop or a hybrid?

This is a question for the people with RIGID Dually lights. I found a set locally on Craigslist and the guy is selling them for only $70. The problem is though that one has condensation between the inner and outer lense. Had anyone had problems with this before? Would I be able to seperate the lense and wipe it out?

I've heard/seen that the seals do this on some dually's. Never had any issues with mine though. I also read somewhere that Rigid doesn't recommend opening them yourself. If you do open them, they will prob just do it again. Rigid has great customer service and probably would warranty the lights for ya. I'd say get them!
