OME lift & BL

So I'm getting ready to purchase the lift for my TJ. the only thing I'm wondering is after I install a 2" OME lift and 1" daystar BL will 33's look silly? and how is my 4 banger going to move 35's? here i a pic of my TJ on 33's with no lift also with no winch winch now is on it and makes the front end sag.

any imput is helpful
Thanks,
Dan

it won't look silly. It will look like it can flex those 33's easily. I really like the way my OME and 1" BL look with 33's.

Do you have a picture of your Jeep? are you running 33x12.5 or 33x10.5?

35" tires might be too much for a 4 banger without regearing.

I put on a 2" OME suspension lift and was going to put a 1" BL on but instead put in about 3/4" spacers in the front. all said and done it's a little over 3" of lift with 33x11.5x16 Goodyear MT/R's. It really turned out great and I'm very happy with it.

Thanks. I'm pleased with how it turned out.

Tony, yours is looking good. Black is my favorite color, but I'll never own a black Jeep.

I had original MT/Rs and hated them so much that I couldn't take any chances when replacing them. I drove a friends rig with Duratracs and was sold.

(My original MT/Rs were extremely loud.)

Yes, you should call and talk to Dirk at DPG Off Road. He'll talk to you about your rig and plans and then tell you what springs you need. I bought my OME lift from him and was very happy with the service. Dirk is first class.
