Best 2.5" for my needs?

So am finally getting around to buying my lift, and am dead set on a 2.5" I plan on weighing it down a good bit (hard top, bumpers, winch, full corners, rockers, flat fenders + gear inside) and running 33s or possibly 35s, either at 10.5 wide, with some trimming of my rear full corners.

The impression I've been under is that the OME 2.5" HD kit would be my best bet as it's designed to be weighed down a good bit, and rides quite well under load. Opinions? Pictures? Anyone done this themselves?

I'm trying to keep it as low as possible to retain my DD capabilities, while still maintaining a well built, and rugged rig. Any recommendations of other lift kits? Would like to make sure I don't drop 800$ on a 2.5" lift that I end up hating, so yea, thanks in advance for any input.
