I need to find a way to add an inch to the back part of the lift, then I'd go ahead with the install.
I'd like to know that too. I have been recommended monroe load levelers and more than that the ones for the F-150. I like my bilstein shocks though...

Jay, I really like the trimming you have done to your front fascia. I wish I had the balls or the skill to pull that clean of a cut off.

I hear ya. I hated the way the Superlift first turned out with the rear appearing to sag. That's why I raised it another two inches.
I'm sure there's a set of longer rear coils out there you could grab!

You could pull it off EASILY. Just mark your lines, use a dremel, then sandpaper to smooth it up well. It's all balls and no skill for that mod, haha

I know I can buy the OME rear springs that will give me 2 inches of lift, and I can add my spacer for a total of 4 inches of lift. Which I personally think would look fine with the 2 inch lift in the front. I love rake. Obviously I would have to buy new shocks.

I really wish there were images of somebody's ride who has already done the OME coil with the 2" spacer.

Re: Jay's 05 WK Build Thread

Now that I'm thinking about it, I think 2for3 put the OME coil and a spacer on his.

Jeff, I think just a rear OME coil with no spacers will be a good place to start if you are going to run the BB. That will give you an additional inch in the rear. I that doesn't end up boeing enough, you can cut down your rear spacer to one inch and throw it in there.
That's the route I would take. Either way, don't let your lift just sit around in the garage, put it to use!

Re: Jay's 05 WK Build Thread

When I said spacer I meant the 2" BB spacer. The coil alone will make it look like crap. I really don't like the front looking higher than the back because of the fender.

I'll get something together one day. To be honest, I still haven't fully decided on whether I want to lift it, or get some 22's, lol.

That would be a LOT of rake! We only used 1.5" spacer with the OME and that was with 1" extra lift in the front as well. With that combo I was sitting dead even.

Re: Jay's 05 WK Build Thread

Its not that much rake actually. It makes the Jeep look better because of the way the front fender is cut.

Personal preference I guess! I prefer the Jeep to be level and with the body lines of the WK it still looks like it has rake.
