Pros: Nice fit, Nice look for a light suspension lift!
Cons: OME Sport Nitro's provide firmer ride than anticipated. Great offroad but you defiantly get a feel for the asphalt with these.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Very happy overall with the OME deluxe kit. As noted above, the ride is firmer than I expected on the highway but well within tolerances and much better than the worn out factory springs and shocks. Derek at DPG.COM really took the time to make sure I had everything I needed to have a clean install which was greatly appreciated. Kit came with Old Man Emu Sport Nitro Shocks, full leaf packs and coil springs, JKS Adj. Track Bar, JKS Quicker Disconnects, and hardware. Fit was good and other than a few broken bolts to deal with, install went smoothly.

Price: $730.00
Pros: Stock ride, decent price
Cons: no instructions, only two year warranty
Recommended? No

Comments: Installing the rear track bar relocation bracket was a PITA, make sure you have a short air powered drill to drill the top bracket hole. Otherwise, no further issues, no driveline vibes (I have 1.25" BL & 1" MML on my LJ). If i were to do it again, I most likely go with American made BDS with a lifetime warranty FWIW.

Pros: rides real smooth on rough roads
Cons: none

Comments: I did a lot of reading about these kits before I bought and installed the OME kit. Great on-road feel (I commute a lot in my TJ) and even better in the rough stuff. Worth the premium paid, and would recommend to anyone!

Pros: great ride
Cons: little pricey and did not come with instructions.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Easy to install, but I had to call quadratec because it did not come with instructions for the shackles, they had no clue. Call ARB but they were not open on weekends so install was delayed. The lift did not come with any hardware so it had to be purchased separate. New u bolts and spring bolts are a must with an old jeep.
