I hate it when people say the "OME 2.5" lift kit"!
The 2.5" lift is a consequence of fitting OME's heavy duty suspension setup: HD coil springs and Nitrocharger shocks. You might as well add an OME steering dampner as well, but if all you want is the lift, I am sure there are easier ways of achieving it.
I fitted the above on my 4Runner (GVM: 2510kg) and have resently completed over 5,000km with it weighing in at a healthy 2,900kgs with no problems (re: butt sag etc) at all. For the first 800km (jo'burg to Bulawayo) we also had a fully loaded 1 tonne trailer hooked up on the back and still had no signs of shock fade etc. Bear in mind though that most of the roads between SA and Kenya are fairly good tar and the shocks really didn't undergoe a consistent and arduous thrashing until we reached Kenya.
Unloaded though you may find the ride harsh and has even be known to cause chassis cracking here in Kenya due to the shock transferred.
