Old Man Emu OME 2" Suspension Lift

Easy install w/basic hand tools..I went with HD springs and got almost 4 inches of lift..Rides well also..I purchased the lift and JKS track bars in a package deal from Northridge 4x4..

OME, what more can I say. Better than stock ride and handling. Doesen't make give a wow factor though, only a beefy look

So far so good, I am NOT a mechanic but managed to get it in easy enough, I have always wanted the OME kit, got it from DPG as part of the Ultimate kit, it is the way to go... still waiting to get some 33s under it, but with my 30s it rides fine and looks awesome

The kit rides awesome. The shocks are so much better than my factory ones were. My only complaint is that the rear netted about 3 inches and the front was just under 2. I need to install a 3/4 poly coil spring spacer

Great ride, I have not fully tested it yet. I have light springs in front and mediums in back. When towing my trailer (1300lbs) the ride is very smooth, better than I thought it would be. Without the trailer it is firm but not too harsh. Off road it seems very good.

I love this lift kit. It rides smoother than stock and it looks great on my rig. I netted about 2.5inches of lift after it settled.

Excellent ride and handling. Handles weight very well, actually ends up about 3" with the HD springs

I just installed the kit, complete with track bars and upper front CAs - so not many miles on it yet - I will report back in the near future - right now on the highway I will give it a 10 for ride and stability -

Excellent ride, I on;y wish it was a little bit taller, like a three inch lift. I'm going to back in and add a 1 inch spacer.
