Price: $900.00
Pros: Amazing handling Great movement
Cons: Some might consider stiff
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The kit is amazing. On the street the jeep rides like a lifted sports car and off road the jeep can hang with the best of them if not out wheel them. I personally love the stiffness of socks but some would complain. A friend told me their old shocks "OME nitrocharger" are softer than their new "OME nitrocharger sport."

Pros: very good ride for taller/ heavy duty springs.
Cons: kit did not come with adjustable trac bar. go for the 4 inch lift instead. wouldve came with everything needed including the correct length shocks, trac bar and brake lines.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: overall very good. the place i got it from did not put the kit together very well. i opted out of ome shocks and got cheaper ones. ended up finally put some procomps 3000 on it. much better! the kit could've been ordered as a 4 inch kit including much more and correct parts i needed. should've, could've kinda thing. next lift i do i think i might just use the ome springs and still part out everything else on my own. but definatley more research.

Comments: for the price of the lift kit, and the smooth and soft suspension travel, this kit is worth the buy! I would call it the XJ with the cadillac suspension lol

Price: $900.00
Pros: Smooth ride on the road, great handling off road.
Cons: Rear lift is a little high.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The lift is still new but the rear is riding at 4.5", so the vehicle has some rake to it, front to back. I am waiting to see if it will settle. No wobble or vibrations. It included the transfercase lowering kit which is installed.

Price: $700.00
Pros: Better clearance
Cons: I had to have an actual shop do it to comply with warranty, would have preferred to do it myself.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Great lift I think it is better than stock ride, I should have gotten a better SS but I love it, it is solid, make sure you get the HD, which is what I got otherwise it may be a little loose. I got the 3" OME.

Old Man Emu XJ OME 3" Lift
Price: $900.00
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Good lift and ride quality but don't know if it is worth the money if you are wanting a true 3". Mine came to exactly 3" in the rear but makes me nervous if it will sag lower over time.
