Looks interesting. Is it actually for sale or is it in development? I wonder if he's using the same caster correction bushings as everyone else?

Default Thread Hi-Jack!

Just a heads up for those considering a 4" lift in the future....I will be selling my rear Slee 4" mediums in a little while so it might save someone a few bucks over new springs. I'm undecided about the fronts at this point.

Hi-Jack over.....

I read Nay's write up on MUD. I'll like to get a ride in a rig with it installed. Sounds like a good match for what I'm looking for.

According to the website its in stock and ready to ship. I have not called to confirm as I need to wait until our house is done to start the mods on my 80. So that give me time to do my research.

There are a LOT of threads and a LOT of discussions on MUD about the FOR lift vs. the OME lift. A lot of back and forth and some heated debates. Nay is definitely a vocal supporter of the FOR lift.

FWIW I went with the OME setup from Slee. Seemed to be better suited to my plans and also seemed to have much more long term history compared to the FOR lift. I'm sure Christo could add a lot of thoughts but if you search MUD I think you'll get the basic drift
