Got bored today and my buddy came over with air tools and we got the OMEs and extended links in. It rides... Amazing. The only damage was I think I popped my shoulder, I was holding the shock boot while my buddy cranked on the upper bolt and literally I heard the loudest pop come from my shoulder and shooting pain for like 20 seconds, then it got better lol. I also skinned a bit of my finger maneuvering around the damn ABS lines. Broke the upper spline thingy off the top of the passenger shock stud so took off from the bottom, when the time comes to pull it I'm going to have to get creative.

21.5" in the rear 21" in the front. (for others reference stock should be 18 front 18.75 rear) Take into account that I do have aftermarket bumpers front and rear and also the springs may settle down a little bit over the next week or two, I will update with measurements later. As of now it looks like I've gained 3" over stock, WITH bumpers and old isolators I plan on replacing those isolators eventually as well, apparently I could be losing up to 3/4" there alone! The OME coils achieve lift through spring rate more than lift so they were very easy to get in and out, actually easier than installing my BB if you want me to be honest.

Ah yes those pretty little things. I ordered my Bilsteins last week but when I checked today they havent been shipped out yet so I think I might change the shipping address to ROC and it looks like they'll just have to wait. I tested the stockers outside the Jeep, no leaks and still feel "right" when I compressed them by hand, maybe a bit too easy to compress. They have behaved fine on the road, havent bottomed them out or anything and gave the Jeep ~50 miles of driving today on all sorts of roads and situations and everything behaved awesome. These coils have literally transformed my handling feel/ride quality you gotta try it out that weekend you come up to the apartment. I dont know about handling limits though being a lifted Jeep I'm not pushing them and I'm kinda worried to figure out what they are. The OMEs reduced body roll significantly so its tempting me to push it but I still dont trust it. I'm sure the proper extended links I also installed have helped.

PS the 32s are back on for this week only, buddys wanted to see what it REALLY would look like. I'll be taking them off this weekend but with air tools changing tires takes minutes at most

I wouldn't be too scared to push it a little, but obviously, keep your head on your shoulders if you do, the limits are certainly lower than stock.

I'm being pretty careful about it until I figure everything out. Trying to take turns around town slowly, hitting offramps slow, etc. Main area I notice it is coming out of turns from stoplights and taking turns theres no more of this nosediving from the heavy bumpers it just feels really stout and supported. IMO drives better than a stock WJ now. Bumps are very firm and sporty feeling with these new coils, which is interesting I figured that'd mostly come from the shocks. Have yet to try it with my street tires but I imagine those will help make the handling a bit snappier, these 32s have always felt kinda wobbly. I bet the michelins have better sidewall support

I also decided to clean my michelins the other day with some deeper tire cleaner and it amazed me how much was stuck in the rubber this stuff pulled it all out. Tires look brand new after the scrub. White balance on my phone was off this is an understatement

Wow that looks great! It is still a pretty mild lift and that is what I was looking for too! Maybe because of your bumpers too! Haha

The bumpers hang down low in the front because I have the air deflector but look at the grille line where the bumper is and you realize it's notably higher than a stock wj... I really like it, just enough to let me run the tire I want and it rides awesome and the stance is awesome
