set up, sound right?

I'm putting the OME 2" lift on my '02 TJ and I'd like to go with the Goodyear Duratracs. Will the 33X12.5R15 tires and the 15x10.5 Mickey Thompson Classic II wheels fit with this lift?

I've heard the Duratracs run a bit smaller than advestised size and they don't sell a 32"

thanks and if anyone is running this, I'd love to see pics.

one more thing, can anyone tell me the differences between light, medium and heavy loads on the OME lift kit? and why you would choose one over the other?


thanks!

Have you already bought the lift? If not, talk w/Dirk @ DPG: dpgoffroad.com |
- I left him an email and he called me the same day.
- He will walk you through the whole process

thanks, he emailed me on Friday and I owe him a call, I'll do that, it seems to be the way to go from what everyone says, he's great.

and no, I haven't purchased yet but was going to through his site.

Go with 15x8's rather then 15x10's.... unless you want the L@@K of fat tires.....

I think you will rub with only 2" of lift. I ran 31's with 2".... now I'm on 4" 33' DuraTracs and Mickey Thompson Classics ( ol'school) 15x8's

For what it is worth......I have the OME but not from Dirk....got it over a year ago and didn't know about Dirk. Was installed by a local shop that has been around for about 15 years. That said.

I was told that I "can fit" 33"s of any tire as long as the BS is correct.....however I was cautioned that "to wheel" it I "should" add a 1-1.25 BL as well as 1" MML.

SO far nothing to complain about the OME. And Dirk will answer your questions, about HD but basically if you are going to or already have loaded up your Jeep with heavier bumpers winch spare tire etc, get the heavier load springs.
