I would need the heavy duty spring kit because I plan to put a winch up front when funds allow for it lol
An XRC bumper and winch up front is about 150 pounds I'd say. So I want the least amount of sagging possible.

Here is a quick shot of mine with 31's.

|530ktm||DPG Off Road is a place a lot of members recommend. They are very helpful with info too, from what I have read. I personally got my parts from 4wheel parts but you need to know what you are doing with those guys.|

|99white4.0||What's the best price you guys have seen on the 2-2.5 OME lift? And where?|

|tlarm139||well i mean i dont go wheeling much. and when i do, its nothing big. would i be better off with like a Rubicon Express, zone, or skyjacker budget boost?|
|12-28-2010 01:56 PM|
|530ktm||I agree with all the above as this is what I have done to mine and I love it.|

Also, I too went with the MML via new, taller mounts. It kind of defeats the purpose of a lift (as far as ground clearance) by doing a T-case drop. The MML wasn't all that difficult, just kinda tedious- but then again I was working alone.

Australia has laws that limit the amount of lift that can be installed on vehicles. As a consequence, OME has developed a very refined product working within those lift limitations.
I am running the 2.5" OME lift with 35's and highline fenders. No rub. As illustrated above, OME works excellent offroad. My experience on road is that it handles better than stock on the pavement. I have only good things to say about OME.

I got my parts from DPG offroad. OME lift, 1.25" jks BL, 1" MML, bump stops, quick discos, and traction bars. it wasn't cheap, but after doing a lot of research I wanted to do it once and do it right. I still have my 31s on, but 33s are perfect. Dirk (from DPG) said that you can run 35s if you do something with the fenders and the right backspacing. my rims are 3.75 I believe.
I may be wrong, but if you do the body lift, get the motor mount lift instead of the transfer case drop. after I did the body lift the fan was not centered on the radiator and was nearly bumping the shroud. the MML took care of that. I'll post some photos later today.

I'm running a 2" OME lift on an 03'. I have factory rims so I had to get spidertrax spacers to get enough offset for 32" Cooper STTs. No body lift nec. Just be sure that they give you the right year kit....they gave me Tcase drop from a different year and I was short a couple donuts - as a result the drive shaft hits the skid plate on lift. I don't jump my TJ so I don't worry about that too much. Def - get the right bumpstops though ! that is a must. Fairly easy install except for the springs.
So, if you have the right kit, bumpstops, and the right backspacing on our rims, then you should be able to fit 33" tires tightly and not rub. If you want max articulation, then stay with 32"s to be safe. No body lift nec.
Rides smooth as good, if not better, than stock susp.

2.5" OME (933 fronts+ 0.75" spacer/949 rears), 1" bumpstop extensions in front, 1.5" in rear. Rokmen control arms, custom track bars & modified diff covers (to avoid contact at full bump), JeepMedic tummy tuck and AA SYE. Works great for me, suppose its considered a "hybrid lift".

|hound2005tj||sorry but did you guys had to do anything with the sye /cv driveshaft?|
|12-27-2010 09:37 PM|
I usually try and hit up 4wd or 4wheelparts when they have their free shipping sales like right now 4wheelparts has the complete kit for 10% off plus free shipping.

|Bigstonz||Northridge had the best price a couple years ago|

|Lowrollin12||Im looking to get this lift in the next month... and price shopping. List the best price you find if you are looing to buy the OME lift.|
|12-27-2010 08:42 PM|
I've got OME lift, 1"BL and 33X12.5X15 rubber.
No rub issues but that's due to rims with 3.65" Backspacing.
|12-27-2010 07:41 PM|
|tlarm139||thanks. ive been hearing good thing about OME|
|12-27-2010 06:38 AM|
I'm also running the OME lift (springs and shocks) with a JKS 1.25 BL and a MML and have no rub issues with 33x12.5x15's.
It's a nice ride, you can't go wrong!
|12-27-2010 01:39 AM|
|cavediverjc||I'm running the OME Long Travel shocks and I love them. They're awesome offroad and nice and firm (but not too stiff) on the road. I won't buy anything else from here on out. I'm not running an OME lift (it's a Full Traction), but I've heard nothing but good about their springs. I don't think you'll be upset with ANYTHING that has OME on it.|
|12-27-2010 12:22 AM|
|tlarm139||looked good !|
|12-27-2010 12:09 AM|
|Jp90Talon||Thats my old jeep (kinda miss it since it felt "zippy" next to the LJ) but it had the popular JKS 1.25" BL and M.O.R.E 1" MML with the OME suspension|
|12-26-2010 11:55 PM|
|tlarm139||JP, how much BL do you have? 1 inch? and thanks guys|
|12-26-2010 11:13 PM|
|12-26-2010 11:05 PM|
Just make sure you have the right bump stop length
|12-26-2010 10:47 PM|
I run the OME lift and a 1" body lift and I don't have any rub issues at all with 33x12.50 tires... check out the flex
and here's how it sits on the road...
|12-26-2010 10:29 PM|
|tlarm139||okay. But do u think ill get any rub? thats the last thing i want. im debating 31s or 32s. i want that nice squatty and wide (i guess i could say) look to it.|
|12-26-2010 10:20 PM|
|Jp90Talon||Yes you will love it! I ran 32x12.5x15s with a 1.25" BL|
