Pros: Smooth, firm ride Outstanding gas shocks Easy installation
Cons: For stock jeeps - might need spacers if you've got heavy bumpers/armor, etc.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: 2004 Unlimited (LJ). Put kit on in 2006 - that's 5 years ago - still rides awesome!

Got the DPG Offroad Deluxe Kit from Kirk with BL, MML, and JKS front discos. Bought a separate adjustable track bar for front.

Install was VERY easy (except the MML was a pain - you've got to have small hands) - can easily do in a leisurely weekend or a very productive day.

DEFINITELY RECOMMEND OME SPRINGS AND SHOCKS.

My Jeep rides better (still) than a new stock one.

I would definitely recommend to others.

Note: OME lifts are for stock Jeeps - If you have huge bumpers and armor all over, you may want to get spacers or adjustable leveling spacers to get it back to 2.5"

Price: $950.00
Pros: Great improvement and high quality parts. Rides so much better now. It feels like a new vehicle
Cons: Not cheap but worth every penny
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Put this on my 89 Islander 4.2

I didn't buy a "kit", but rather purchased everything separately from different vendors, ebay, amazon and got the rear springs from a fellow member (Scramblered) brand new.

Rear springs ware CS037 with D24 extra leafs to bring them to "heavy duty" rating. Since I don't have a winch, I got the CS014 front springs (medium duty), knowing that I can make them heavy in the future with an add a leaf from OME.

I replaced the entire suspension with OME product - springs, greasable shackles and bushings, nitrocharger shocks, u bolts, t case drop, steering stabilizer and U bolts. Every kit I priced and added the extras not included in the kit, was coming in far above $1200.

For anyone considering this lift, I highly recommend it. The parts are machined unbelievably well and there is no effort assembling into the Jeep. All my blood was lost on tearing out the old.

ARB Dakar, who distributes and make the Old Man Emu stuff, was also extremely helpful over the phone with a bunch of questions I had. Gotta love great customer service.

Do some serious shopping, and remember that most of the "big" vendors will price match if you feel more comfortable (as I do) buying from them.

Pros: Great ride, not too harsh.
Cons: Needed zj front springs to level 06 LJ Rubicon
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This lift was on Jeep when I purchased it. Front end was low and discovered I had an entire OME lift except for the front springs which were original mopar with a 2 inch spacer. After researching and discussing with OME rep decided to swap out the original springs and spacer with OME934 SJ front springs. This leveled up everything and improved the ride. Also added OME SD40 steering stabilizer.

Pros: Good quality, nice ride.
Cons: None
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I went with the heavy duty YJ/TJ springs in a kit from Rokmen for my LJ Rubi.
Everything fit correctly and ride is a little stiffer than stock, however this is what I want since it will loosen up over time.

Comments: I actually have the long travel shocks, they work great. I can't really tell the potential because I don't have any real weight on the front or rear.
