OME Question

Hey guys I'm about to order the OME lift for my 05 WK Limited. I had a question that I don't believe has really been covered before concerning the kit. I'm really not going to be using the jeep offroad, it's going to be a driving machine on really bad back roads. Logging roads, pothole filled back roads, rough gravel roads, the sort of thing that destroyed my stock suspension in the first place. The problem is, I need to do this driving at a fair rate of speed, going up to around 45 or 50 and everything under obviously, which is really pretty quick on rough roads. The jeep is stock except for exhaust and intake and I'm torn between the medium of heavy lift. Logic is telling me the heavy lift would be better suited to absorbing the road at higher speeds, but I wanted a few opinions.

Re: OME Question

id go medium. the HD is for adding weight to the vehicle, i think the medium being softer than the HD would absorb the road better..
