    I am assuming that your truck is a 4x4. Definitely OME. It's been used and abused by various off roaders and has proven to be very reliable. I don't go off road either but I do feel much more comfortable going through pot holes, haha. But the ride if actually quite good (614 with aal). If you go with 612 with Coachbuilder shackles, the ride should be awesome.

    Coach builder (site vendor) makes some of the best shackles around. You could get one inch block in the rear with stock shocks, but it would be better to get 3 inch shackles (gives roughly 1 & 1/2 inches of rear lift) with OME shocks. OME rear shocks are designed for 1-3 inches of lift in the rear.
