OME lift/ 2in lift advice

Spoke to a friend of mine about his OME lift. He said good things about it and if it rides as good as they say then I can justify the $.

Can I run 32's with this? (it says 31's)
Is this lift superior to other 2"?
What other mods will improve this lift?

thanks for the feedback

x2 on calling Dirk.

I LOVE how my OME runs offroad. I've run trails with bigger jeeps, including those running LA 5.5" lifts, and I was able to do all they did. Even in places where they got stuck, I was able to go (likely due to a slightly different line).

To improve the OME lift even more, JKS components go well with it (BL/MML, control arms, quick disconnects for the sway bar, etc).

I can comfortably say that I am VERY comfortable and satisfied where my OME-suspended TJ will take me and how it rides day in and day out.

-97 TJ with a few mods. PM with questions.

Well since no one else mentioned it I'd call Dirk @ DPG.

Keepin the peace.

The difference between sport and combat is that in combat you bury the one who comes in second.

i test drove many different suspensions before i decided to buy an OME. in my opinion it´s the suspension with the best offroad AND onroad capabilities at the same time.
most others were good off the road and not so good on the road or vice versa.

on my TJ i have 32x11.5x15 with the OME HD suspension (after installing it was 3.25" high and now after a month it didn´t sag only a bit) and an additional 2" BL. i didn´t extend the bumpstops and at full flex (with disconnected sway bars) there is about 1" room before it would rub.

so i think that it´s true that 32s fit with the OME suspension and a 1" BL. i think if you extend the bumpstops 1" there will be no rubbing with only the OME suspension and 32s and no BL.

OME is one cushy ride, built for high speed unimproved roads down under.
