Default 2011 Outdoorsman Readylift

Just installed a 2.5" readylift on my 2011 outdoorsman, and have to say it was money well spent. The truck looks 100% better without that terrible factory rake. Sorry I'm not able to post any pictures.
Hindsight being 20/20 I could have gone to my local Les Schwab and had them install a 2" lift for only 20 bucks more, but oh well, I'm glad I got the extra half inch of lift.
I don't believe the outdoorsman has the longer front struts like the Trx 4's did; I had 3" of rake factory, and still have around 1/2" of rake now.
Labor to install was about 5 hours, and I was moving pretty slow, because I was pretty hungover. I found the install directions available for download on tough country's website were a little more helpful than what came with the readylift, as the tough country directions listed torque specs.
I do have a shimmy in the front end now in 4 wheel drive when under moderate acceleration. I wouldn't really call it a death wobble though, as suspension vibrations from most dirt roads / uneven surfaces would make this shimmy pretty hard to feel. Since I'm not in the habit of driving in 4 wheel drive on the pavement I'm not too worried about it. When my cv axles grenade I'll just replace them.
I know i've read a lot of questions about some of this stuff, so hopefully some of this information is useful.
