Ironman or OME?

Looking at the 1.5' lift kits for both. What do y'all prefer or think is better? I do not do a ton of serious off-roading but like to get out there once in a while and get dirty. Also what springs/strut/shocks did y'all go with if OME is preferred choice

I have had the full iron man setup for a year and love it. Hd springs, 3/8 clevis, 1/4 top plate. Ride is better than new and on trails it inspires confidence. Don't forget uca's from jba. Wheel measurements from center of wheel to bottom of fender flares 23.0" front , 22.25" rear.

If you read through my various posts on here, LOSTJEEPs and JeepKJ you'll see I have ran both and that both are good lifts for the money. Some even think the Ironman ride better than the OME
Ironman shocks are longer both front and rear
Both come complete with springs and shocks
although advertised at 1.5 inches they both give more , the OME 2.5 and Ironman at about 2.25

I bought the UCAs a while ago along with bump stops, don't have a Clevis or top plate though I don't think.
