Lift finally installed!! OME, .75", and some JKS Stuff

Hey guys, well I waited exactly one year before I touched this Jeep. Longest I've ever held out on modifying a car/Jeep of mine. I am so happy with the new stance/loook of the Jeep and think it turned out fantastic. Did the install in my garage yesterday and it was smooth as silk...except for those damn stock shocks up front!!

Only issue to report is a squishy sound coming when i turn the steering wheel left and right. No Death wobble...have had it up to ~80 mph. Got it aligned this mornin.

Parts Installed:
OME Springs (2")
.75" Spacer
JKS Adj. Track Bar
JKS Sway Discos
Procomp MX6 Adj. Shocks
Extended Bumpstops

Parts still on order:
Wheels: 16x8 5on5 4.25 Backspacing Rockcrawler Black Steels
Tires: Bridgestone Revos 275/70/16
Front and Rear Addco Sway Bars

PICS

Before:



After:



And of course...filling up with some yummy 93 octane @ $3.07/gallon...

Wow, $3.07 a gal is crazy. I would hate to have to use 93.

I thought and still think the same thing when i see pics of mine and others who do these 2-3.5" lifts. They just dont look that pronounced in the web pics...but trust me, in person its a HUGE change. Just getting up into it takes a little more of a hop and the radio antenna now slaps into the garage door.

but i will post pics when i get the wheels/tires on as that, i know, will make a big difference.

Looks great, how is the ride? Any death wobble? Also, did you notice any diff with or without the track bar (if you had the lift on before the track bar).

The ride is like stock except the body roll is more noticeable. Sways are on order for that little issue. Track bar went on with everything else.

I see, is the body roll very noticable? The Jeep looks great IMO! I have the same setup as you minus the shocks, and track-bar waiting to go on. I am wondering if I should get the track-bar, or not.

The body roll is much more noticeable now with the lift. I was planning on getting the addco bars whether i lifted it or not because im use to cars that ride like they're on rails so im very sensitive to body roll.
