Any before and after lift pics?

Hey everyone. So I think I'm going to lift new (to me) 08 wk. I've had older cherokees and wranglers. Does anyone have any before and after pics for a 2"-4" lift and bigger tires. Trying to figure out what way to go. I've been getting everything I want so I can take a week or so off and do nothing but work on my ride.

Re: Any before and after lift pics?

Man I can't wait to put my OME lift on. Did you guys guy with the MD or HD? I have a hemi with the stock armor. I highly doubt I'll ever add 4x skids and stuff but do I need the HD bc of the Hemi and stock armor?

Re: Any before and after lift pics?

Go with the MD if you want a little better ride comfort.

It really depends on what you are going to be doing with your WK.

What are the rear spacers that some people are running with the OME? Is there a specific brand that people are using, or just any old ones from a BB?

When you throw the spacers on, does it make the front of the jeep look lower again?

I used RK spacers. I cut them to 1.5" Just make sure whatever you use is equivalent to 1.5" so that you don't need too much further suspension modifications to accommodate the extra lift.

By adding the spacer back there, I got the factory rake back and it looks so much better.

You might not need to add spacers back there. I only have a V6 and the OME lift was design for V8 engines. By me only having a V6, I got more lift in the front than in the rear. I got 3.2" to 3.5" inches in the front and only 2.2" in the rear. Adding the spacer gave me 3.5" all the way around.

Yep, it's up high. Lol. It's actually a lot higher than in the pictures. The pictures lie.

Re: Any before and after lift pics?

Not a before and after... but it does show the difference between a 2" lift (me) and a 4" lift (buddy at work).... also 31" tires vs 35"
