Superlift vs OME

Long story short, I ended up with 2 sets of suspension lift for the YJ.

Superlift 3.5" heavy duty full military wrap and OME 2.5" 36r all around. Which one is better?

Would like some opinions on this, lift will be used for daily driving and weekend trail runs.

Things to consider:
- reliability
- comfort
- offroad capability
- sag/longevity
- pros/cons

- reliability : OME
- comfort : OME
- offroad capability : OME > SL
- sag/longevity : OME WILL NOT SAG ! SL will after a couple years
- pros/cons : SL is notorious for sending wrong parts, and if parts are not in stock you'll be waiting for them to make thier next batch ( I learned this working at 4WP)

Bwahahahaha, exactly why I ended up with 2 lift kits. Wow, so OME all the way. I knew they were comfy, but never thought they're better in terms of off-road capability. Superlift springs look very beefy, but looks can be deceiving.

Don't be so quick to bash your sponsor.

I'm sure the super lift springs are OK, but if I had the choice I'd run OME.

I've been researching new springs and lift for my 93YJ. Really swaying towards OME. Here is a good link on OME. Their springs look tuff!

Good luck

"Tuff" is what 16 year old girls say.

OME springs are totally not horrible, great springs, just make sure you run shocks, or end up like me, my rear springs sagged a bunch because I had no deniro for shocks, don't skimp and get shocks, you will be happy

Haha, I was planning on running shocks. You mean you had no shock at all or ran stock blown ones? Haven't ordered those yet, but planning on Bilstein 5100s.

No one's bashing the sponsor. I have their 1.5" lift on now and absolutely love it. Going bigger tire, need more lift. It's no secret their delivery times aren't pizza hut, but as far as their product goes, I've had no problems so far. Like I said, the springs look beefy and considering the fact I have both kits and don't exactly plan on trying both out, I figured a poll would help me decide.

Thank you for posting the link, but I already ordered the OME springs last week, haven't received them just yet to compare.

Here's a couple of pics of superlift, I'm very impressed by full military wrap and build quality:
