I went ahead and put on the BWoody Extended Sway Bar links too.

I'm working tonight and am up too late already, so I'll post some more pictures tomorrow. Since I put the wheels and lift on at the same time I don't know the exact inches of lift, but I got about 3" between the two. Again, I'll post more tomorrow. Here's a video with a little more detail
Looks good!

This looks great. I'm currently prowling the forums trying to decide between the OME and RRO setups. I have looked at the Eibach and Icon systems too, but It looks like they provide a disproportionate amount of lift up front.

A gold patch on a rusty beam doesnt help. And in this case doesn't look better either.

To each their own bro. I would ask why someone would buy a 'Jeep' just to lower it and put ghetto 22s on it...

Definitely agree with this. I always thought people bought jeeps to go higher not lower...

Yea your logic used to make sense before grand cherokees became glorified crossovers... They are no longer a platform to lift. It actually makes more sense to lower them now than lift them...

Re: Old Man Emu 2" lift finally available to buy!!!

FYI everyone...2016, Jeep added a bracket to the front strut that attaches to the sway bar. The OME lift kit will not work on the 2016....any kit that replaces the strut up front, will not work on the 2016.

OME lift with 275/65/18s. When I get back from deployment, I'll decide on wheels, and will also be getting the RRO winch/mount and prerunner skid.
