Old Man Emu suspension systems

I was wondering if anyone had any opinions on these systems? I am looking at a 2.5" lift with possibly a 1" bl to run 33s. I just want to know pros and cons with this setup vs 3.5" full suspension lift. Thanks!

OME is good stuff! I wouldn't hesitate a second in deciding to use their kits.

I run a hybrid of the kit. Just what your looking at 2.5'' ome lift and 1.25 jks bl. Love it.

The heavy coil net around 3'' of lift.

Give Dirk a call at DPGoffroad.com. He is a OME guru.

linky....

Thanks! Can you send me some pics? Did you have to make any modifications to that setup or was it cool right out of the box?

I have a hybrid OME kit..."not off the shelf". But I ordered what I needed for "MY" wheeling needs. The ome kits are great with what they come with all you need for that kit. But you can add what you need to suit your wheeling needs down the road.

All my component are ordered from Dirk at DPGoffroad. He has several different OME kits and hybrid OME kits for different levels of wheeling/lift height.

I'll get some pic's posted here in a little bit bud.

Thanks! That is a great looking Jeep! I checked out Dirk's site and once I get enough pennies together I will be placing the order!

I highly suggest giving him a call and talk about what you want for your jeepin needs. It is to late now as it is about 6pm at his shop and he closes it at 5pm but give him a call.
He will not sell you anything you don't want or push any purchase on you either.

Here's my OME 2.5" kit. All I have so far is the rear HD coils and Medium fronts. BL will be on the way soon hopefully.
