Old Man Emu bump stops w/35" MT's

Just wanted to share my experince with the new OME JK bump stops. We spent a good 8 hours wheeling all over Tahuya ORV park Saturday and even at full flex I'm not rubbing the fenders anymore with the larger tires.

I was have some rubbing issues with my 35" tires and decided to go with the OME route. Stock tires were fine but the 35's rubbed the underside of my front fenders really bad. The OME suspension has been great. I have the 3" HD springs and nitro shocks.

So installing the rear stops is a breeze. They sit on top of the axle and bolt right in. 5 min per side.

The fronts require removing the spring and drilling a hole in the center of the spring perch.
I just put the frame on stands,unbolted the bottom of the shock, jacked up one side put spring compressors on the compressed spring and lowered the jack. spring falls right out. Drill hole, put spring back in, jack it up and remove compressors.

Sounds complicated but it really isn't. Build quality and fit is they typical OME/ARB top notch.
I'll post up some pictures as soon as I find my damn card reader.
