The ride is absolutely worth the money.

But it's all about getting the correct spring rate. No shock in the world will have a smooth ride if you get springs that are too stiff. I was actually a little disappointed at first with the ride but then remembered I got the HD springs in the rear from Dirk. After finally getting my tire carrier and spare tire on the back, the ride has greatly improved and is smooth enough now that my dad (who has some pretty bad back problems) enjoys riding in my Jeep and it doesn't leave him gritting his teeth when he rides with me anymore.

Im installing my OME HD springs & lift this weekend. Went with the 2934 fronts & 2949 rear knowing that im throwing new bumpers front and rear & fullsize spare.

Should probably do the bumpers sooner than later because Itll probably be a bit rough ride until i can add some weight.

I have the HD springs as well but haven't gotten around to putting on new bumper and rockers. I can't wait to feel how the ride is supposed to be.
What do you think of the dirtworx bumper you have?

I absolutely love it so far. No rattles yet. But only had it on for about a week and 100 miles worth if driving. But I do not expect it to rattle at all. I posted a thread about it with tons of pictures. If you want to see some more pics of it I'll go get the link for you.

Some are scared by how low the hi-lift mount looks in the pictures. But three things to remember, 1) it's a custom mount so not the way he usually does it and 2) he has multiple configurations he offers with the possibility to customize all of them so you can truly get exactly what you want and 3) the picture makes it look like the mount is sticking out much further than it actually does. In reality, it sticks out slightly less than the tire and is only about 1-1.5 inches from the bottom of the tire. And for me, the jack being there doesn't bother me. When I take it off road, I'll probably put the jack inside anyway to keep the mud off of it as we don't have rocks to smash things on in Mississippi, just mud to sling around.

But to answer your question, his bumpers are worth every penny in my opinion. If I was buying another tire carrier tomorrow, you could bet your life I'd be emailing Robert "Dirtworx".

10-4. I love mine. Sometimes it's red, sometimes it's purple, sometimes it's orange! Can't get enough of it

Not a problem man. He got me my bumper in about 3.5 weeks. Which isn't bad when you consider it's a custom, hand-built carrier. But good luck with your purchases. Let me know if you have any questions.

P.S. One pointer, put the swing out on the bumper and install it as one piece. You can do it one at a time, but it's pretty tight squeeze with the taillight.

Here's mine. Rides very smooth.
