Well, I figured there would be something like that in the stickies. I bet there is, but wading through all that can be a pain. I get it. The good news is you’ve clearly got my attention and I’m willing to help. I won’t get pissy with your questions, so long as you listen or more so, make an effort to comprehend what I’m saying. Not just get pissed and get testy when you may not like the answer.
Moving forward. You’re clearing grasping the basic concept, when it comes to for show, light duty, and high end high performance.
Just slapping on spacers and shackles with give you lift, the ride quality will depend on the shocks you choose. Both other things like weight from skids, sliders, and gear are going to make a difference in ride quality as well. Even with good shocks.
I personally didn’t like the Bilstiens cause I thought they were too soft. I like a harsher stiffer ride. But I also had bumpers and would carry a bunch of camping gear. That’s why I suggested the OME set up. You won’t really need UCAs, as youre right at the cusp of max lift we’re you won’t need them. You can add them down the road if you see the need arise. Same with spring rate for the front coils. You can run standard rate coils, when you add more weight from skids/bumper you can move up to HD coils.
Pretty much the same concept it the rear. Add a leaf (AAL), or full packs, and you can even add an extra HD leaf to a full pack. Plus lift shackles.
Couple that with the skids, sliders and good tires, you can run harder more challenging trails, even if you have to drag the skids/sliders over everything. Hell thats what they are for.
