Re: Finally installing my OME

Nice write up and pics, it looks great. Any other parts rubbing or hitting anything besides the drivers rear upper control arm hitting the fuel tank skid and binding the spring?

Thanks! No, I didn't have any other issues with rubbing. I did do the pinch weld mod too

Re: Finally installing my OME

That is a beastly looking Jeep. NICE WORK!

Just replaced the suspension on my WK with bilsteins all the way around. It did not occur to me at the time to replace the springs, i have now realized my mistake. Can I ask where you picked up your spring set; I'm not having too much luck online.

Thanks

Re: Finally installing my OME

Try contacting Kolak at kolak@aol.com for the OME or stick replacement springs. He will get you the vest prices.

I picked mine up from JeepinbyAl and they were about $800 shipped. Kolak is a good resource too.

Re: Finally installing my OME

Kevin,
I am contemplating your same set up. I have a hemi, going to get the 4x guard skid plates and brush guard also. Did the MD OME level the rake. Are you satisfied with the OME MD after 3 months? I am just trying to decide if I need the HD or MD or HD in front and MD in the rear.
Thanks

I'm still happy with the MD right now. I did install the jba strut spacers up front and I sit level right now. I am thinking of stacking a couple rubber isolators on the rear springs to bring back some of the rake. Although, I've seen tosh's Jeep and am a bit jealous of the Superlift, but the OME is perfect for what I use it for. I thought about the hd springs, but it rides so nicely right now. I'll need to see how it sits after I add the 4xguard front skid.

Re: Finally installing my OME

It won't sit to much different after the armor. Not with the HD springs.
