Re: Before & after pics of emu 2" lift

That looks phenomenal. Why did you decide to go with OM Emu over other 2" lifts??

Uh because OME is the shizznit and is the right decision to make when going with a 2" lift. It gives you a full suspension setup (awesome handling) and you can flex the hell out of a wk off road. Sorry for the rant.

Re: Before & after pics of emu 2" lift

2" rough country lift is only $160 shipped so that is the cheapest budget lift, but your shocks will wear out rather quickly.

Re: Before & after pics of emu 2" lift

Ya I'm willing to spend some coin but w/ OME I couldn't justify 2" for the price (says my bank account).

Did you get the medium or heavy duty kit? I mean I know the difference is that the HD kit is for an extra 90-200 lbs... But I weigh 180. And wouldn't the HD sag less and give you more of a lift? Or would it just be the same with a rougher ride?

Re: Before & after pics of emu 2" lift

I thought about going with budget lift but the stock rear shocks needed to be replaced any way, i am happy i went with the emu because the ride is super nice it much better than stock!!

Re: Before & after pics of emu 2" lift

Johnson- Ive heard the MD springs are actually a tad bit taller than the HD ones... If your doing light towing stick with the MD, the only reason to go with the HD in my opinion is if your doing some serious towing.
