LIFTING the jeep

well ive changed my mind on which route i was going on the jeep.....so now the new question is LIFT.....which one guys without killing my pocket ,im looking towards the the HD OME lift which i think is 2.25....is this good stuff .....im going to go full armor if the budget(wife) lets me.....and going to wait on rims just going to grab tires and spacers if possible......and also how do i know if i have the QDII .....i have a pretty good offroad background, 2 wheel not 4 so any thoughts on anything would be great, and also im trying to keep the initial start of the build around 2-3k depending on what catches my eye thanks guys.....oh heres my truck i sold last year,there is no way im going this crazy again .....

Re: LIFTING the jeep

I am in the same boat as you minus the budget controller and initial start up money. don't know why the ATM wont just give me what I want. lol.

These guys on here have talked me into the OME kit it seems like the real deal, and won't break the bank. I will prolly go with a RC or RR lift for me right now just because of a few lose ends. My tv broke and the new adopted puppy ate my couch last week. Its hunting season right lol.

I heard with the right tires you get more then the 2.25 lift out of the OME and the ride is suppose to be great on/off road. I'm sure some owners of this kit will chime in. Sorry to hear about the rims by the way.

I think the OME kit is 700-750
then the 4XGuard is nice armour. I personally really like the look of the rock rails and the front guard.

Good luck man your in the right place to get the answers you seek, soon to be lift jeep man lol.

Re: LIFTING the jeep

Great decision to lift her. Unless you want to go bigger, get OME lift. You should contact Omelet a member on here. He is in SD area and has an OME for sale. Plus he has one of the sickest WK on the planet you can check out in person.

What model 08 do you have? With the 5.7 I am guessing limited or higher which would mean you have QDII.

Re: LIFTING the jeep

if there is any possibility that youl'l want to go bigger in the future...just do it now, a lot of us make that mistake, you'll be happier in the long run if you go with the superlift imo.

Re: LIFTING the jeep

you guys are probably right ....im just one of those guys that likes to do things twice.....i wish i could see the two of them in person and or ride in both......also is the performance that big of a difference between the 2 .....and if i end up going crazy like i did on my last truck, it means i will lift it about 4 times ,and in the end i will have a vehicle that is un-usable on the street.......did you guys see the video of my last truck....

Re: LIFTING the jeep

haha no, post it or link it!

ive never heard anyone complain about the superlift and a lot of people with ome eventually end up stepping up to the superlift. i am in the process of switching from daystar to a modified ome lift (buying mrtosh's current set up becuse hes going to superlift lol).
