What will best compliment my OME lift?

After months of trying to decide, I went with the OME 2" lift. Before I install it, should I use my extra money to buy adjustable track bars front and rear to avoid drilling holes and to get a more precise axle centering, or should I opt for front and rear lower control arms.

Thanks

If its a DD I would say trackbars, but if you plan on going offroad the controlarms are a benefit.
Any plans on disconnects?

I would go for the trac bars. You don't want to have to start drilling holes in trac bar mounts. You can always upgrade your control arms, and add disconnects, later.

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!

Thanks,
Thats just what I needed to hear. JKS Disco's are already on the way for the front with extended links for the rear.

I run a 2" lift and you'll be fine with quick discos up front and adjustable track bars. Black Diamond bars are heavy duty and priced well. I think I paid about $120 each. I'd then look into rocker guards before control arms on such a modest lift.

What kind of wheeling do you do? What size tires? Body Lift?
