So im new to lifted jeeps former chevy guy yes i got turned. but anyway i want to lift my jeep now its got the stock 4.7 mostly. i want the ome with the control arms you can replace your ball joints. anyway i hear the ome kit is more like a 3 plus lift does anyone have any photos they can share and any advice on tire size i want them to look good not over sized with the lift
Definitely order the control arms and do the project all at once. I ordered my OME and didn't really think I would need the UCAs, but determined within about 5 minutes of installing it that I did. So I waited well over a month for the OME kit and now I'm stuck waiting for the control arms.
I didn't measure mine but like jlewis said, it's probably right under 3 inches, definitely no more.
It's sitting on stock 245/65/17 I THINK. Tough to rustle up funds for tires and lift at the same time. I'm definitely picking up some new rubber, but probably not until late summer/early fall in a 255/70 or 265/70 probably. Appearance with stock size isn't ideal, but it's honestly not as bad as I thought it was going to look.
