Re: Before & after pics of emu 2" lift

What part of the OME lift gives it it's great ride? The shocks or the springs? I already have bilsteins front and back so I don't need shocks.........

Re: Before & after pics of emu 2" lift

These are the pics I was waiting for. Seems you had 32,5" measured to the wheel opening. I checked mine (a 2005 3.0 CRD) . It seems
my
predecessor was a heavy guy, 'cause the jeep leans to the left by 1" . I have about 32" on the left side and 33" on the right side.
I will go for the 2" OME but I still don't know if MD or HD. I think as I don't carry a lot additional weight the MD is the one to go.... if I can find a distributor here in Germany.
What about the tire sizes... currently I have 245/65R17 and I would go for a tire a little taller.. but what about the bolt clearance with stock wheels..?

i have the md kit, not sure if the hd will give you more lift or not but it would make sense that you would get more though as its a stiffer spring.??

Re: Before & after pics of emu 2" lift

Awesome Jeep,

I just purchased a 2006 Limited that looks exactly like yours on the exterior and I've got a 2" Rough Country lift sitting here and I'm waiting on tires. I didn't know what the lift would look like if I installed it without tires and now I do!

To be honest, it doesn't look half bad. Thanks for sharing the before and after photos!

I might just have to install my 2" lift this weekend.

it wont give you more of a lift, but the way i see it, if you gonna be putting on skid plates and adding so many mods to your wk, your gonna want to have the hd to be able to support those extra items. your md kit may sit a little lower, but nothing too much

Re: Before & after pics of emu 2" lift

Do the ball joints, bushings, steering and such get negatively affected with the Old Man Emu lift? I guess I'm not familiar enough with these IFS yet to think how detrimental just adding taller springs & shocks/struts would be to the rest of the angles...maybe 2 (or 3" actual) is not enough? I just don't want to have any issues with premature wear, driveline vibes and all that stuff.
