The OME lift rocks!!! I absolutely love it. Yes, I rode other lifts, and while it's difficult to compare the performance on the trails unless you have the 2 jeeps back to back for comparison, I can tell you that the ride is soooo much smoother. It handles very well, and absorbs a lot more that the other lifts, including the stock springs of course.

Filoo Oh, and be careful if you bleed your brakes, brake fluid is harsh on any paint job!!!

Painting the springs

When I received my 2.5" Old Man Emu new shocks, I had a lot of trouble removing the 20 year old rusty stock springs, so I took my time, and since I had time even more tile to kill, I decided to paint the springs red to match my '93 Jeep color. Since I was at it, I went ahead and painted the front differential cover. Ha!

Here are a few pictures. I think it looks awesome. Yes, it's purely cosmetic, but it's amazing what a few cans of paint can do
