VC's 2" lift kit for their 35" tire setup includes the needed hardware to lift the front end. The sumo spring isn't a lift. You can't lift the front end with the factory suspension in place, which is why their Striker 2" lift kit has the 2" front strut spacer needed to do this.

If we somehow arrive at the idea that we need 35" tires, absolutely. VC kit all the way with no regrets.

Due to my length restrictions I need to avoid aftermarket rear bumper and additions. That means keeping spare tire in OEM location and all tires no larger than spare. I still will get the lift, however, simply for clearance and ride improvement.

Gents, sorry to get us off topic from aux fuel tank on this thread but yet again it has generated a great amount of good info on VC vs. Agile suspension systems. Thanks to all.

Aux Tank Fuel Guage

Agile Offroad recommended the attached fuel gauges from Autometer. 3316 and 3616.

Not bad, you answered my question before I asked it! Where do they typically mount the fuel guage?

Also, the VC rock sliders were not on your list. What is your plan there? Nothing, SMB install during the build, something else?

Fitz, I believe gauge typically mounted underneath dash on left hand side for wiring. I'd like to have it mounted in the small storage slot in our Sprinter, just above the dome light, along with the transfer switch. I'll discuss with Agile when I'm there to see if that is possible with wiring.

I'll do sliders later or perhaps have them shipped to Agile for install there, depends on timeframe.
