New jku, ome 2" hd

Well I made the jump. Here is the new JKU.
3.73 w/Rear Differential, Alpine, and Tow.

After a ton of looking we decided on Old Man Emu Heavy Duty. I could not be more impressed. The springs are very beefy, as compared to the TF I had on the 2 door. I netted 2.25 inches all around on their 2" kit. These shocks are super heavy! I drove it off and the beast rode amazing, this my 3rd lifted Jeep and it is by far the best. I have nothing but rave reviews for OME. Their marketing department even sent me a US mail pkg with about 20 stickers, key chain, etc...(SWAG) I took some pictures of before and after, and the Synergy grab handles installed if anyone had been pondering it. The wheels are the same MB72 33 X 12.5 X 15's from my last JK. I miss my 2 door, but this feels like I am actually driving a truck now, so awesome.

Looks good! What were the spring numbers? Did you go with 2617 / 2619?

I too went with OME 2.5 HD. I also added the OME stealing stabilizer and the JKS Quick Disconnects. Very impressed with the ride and will be able to take the the weight of the bumpers as soon as my wallet recovers. I chose the Grabars for handles.

Gonna go ahead and resurrect this thread. I installed a winch/bumper and want to get rid of some sag. I am thinking of the Mopar HD or OME 2" HD springs just for the front as I dont want a full lift right now. Do I need to get a whole pile of other parts like an adjustable trackbar and swaybar links if all I'm doing is removing sag?
