As of right now, the only additional weight that I will have on the vehicle is the hard top. Otherwise no after market bumpers for at least a year. So all in all, what parts come with the OME 2 inch suspension lift kit for the 2014 JKU and should I get the Heavy or Light.
PS: This is an everyday rider with offroading on the weekends.
I have been running the OME HD spring lift for the last 4.5 years. I went with the HD coils for the added weight (bumpers & winch) and I netted out over 3" of lift with bumpers/winch and still no sag from the springs and the ride quality is nice! Mine is also, a DD and used for weekend off-roading.
If you are not going to add much in the case of weight you may want to look at the MD or LD springs as the HD coils will make for a stiffer ride for sure!
As for kit at the time OME did not offer a full kit and thus I pieced my kit together with TeraFlex lower front control arms (get my caster back to stock), Adj rear swaybar links, JKS quick disco's for the front swaybar, JKS front and rear Adjustable track bars to center the axles. I did't like the thought of trackbar relocate bracket...heard too many stories of the bracket snapping/breaking and the JKS Adjustable track bar is beefy!
Then I went with the LT (Long Travel) OME Nitro shocks, longer brake lines, 2" bumpstops. You will need to add 1.5" Wheel spacers if you are running stock rims to avoid wheel rubbing on the suspension components.
As for what is included in the kits...best to call Northridge4x4 or other dealers that deal with the OME kits.
