    What are you planning on doing with the rig? Old Man Emu has some nice lifts that aren't going to break the bank and can take you some awesome places. Fox, King, Walker Evans with progressive valving (softer on road and harder at speed offroad as shock shaft speed increases) etc shocks paired with some Total Chaos or Camburg UCA's can be pricey but will net you more strength, travel, durability and the ability to rebuild the shocks. Icon makes GREAT kits that run Digressive valving (tighter on road and softer offroad) and have all different levels of lifts ranging from light mod to heavy mod and are well worth the money. I run Icon on my 5th gen and have loved every second of them. I would buy them again and again and again.

    I'm sure I'm missing a few options as well as some more input that I'm sure other will chime in with, but those are some pretty solid options in my opinion.

    as said, it really all depends on what you want to do, if you want to do light crawling, desert blasting, play in the dunes or the mud, or just for aesthetics, the options are all different and tailored to your desires.

    Bilstein 5100 Shocks for 2.5 inch lift and less up front and Daystar Suspension parts,2 inch coil spring inserts, with once again Bilstein 5100 Shocks for rear. Works well and if you have the X-Reas suspension, loose it, as this combination provides a better ride. Bump up to 31 inch tires.

    I'm on the fence about adding OME 3" lift as it's purely for looks as I do not off road. My local shop in Golden tells me the ride will be "firmer" so it concerns me a bit on just how much firmer will be.

    Not really wanting to compromise comfort or have to worry about possible issues from lifting it, but looking for feedback, please.

    Attached is parts & labor (I'm not much of an auto wrench). Thanks!
