I run the OME's HD's w/2" spacers on my 5.9...run the Pro-comps (265's) and I had to trim the fenders a small amount. I just installed adjustable control arms all around and fender trimming is not needed anymore....

Did you have any issues with the OME and spacer? is that all you did and new shocks? Do you have some pics of it?

Ome

The spacer worked fine w/the springs. My profile has a picture of the jeep. It had minor fender rubbing (265 Pro Comps) on the front of each fender until I installed the adj track bars.

You have a V8 so you will want the HD springs. Typically these springs net 2.5" of lift.

I prefer Bilstein 5100 series shocks to go with them as they give the best possible handling, ride control, fade resistance and responsiveness.

Send me a PM here on the forum or email me at kolak@aol.com if you'd like to chat. I've been an OME and Bilstein dealer for many years.

You won't need brakelines. Longer Sway bar links up front aren't necessary, but discos offroad are a good idea. The JKS discos for stock should be the same parts as for 2.5", they're adjustable.
