Let me show you some pictures of my KK 2.8 CRD.
As you know in Europe we do get KKs with 2.8 diesel and 5 gear auto box.

In the snow with Geoloandar AT 235/65-17 tyres





In the mountains with 245/70-17 Cooper STT tyres (much much better, of course)






Some mud with inapropriate rubber







My recently renewed face...










On my ramp-measuring jack

Ok then, "with a liitle help from my friends" who will make my pictures show without clicking, I am posting some comparison pictures of my KK's flex.

All of them have been taken after I had installed an OME 2'' kit.
However, the left ones are with the rear stabilizer bar on and the right ones are with the stabilizer bar removed (unbolted from one side).
The results I measured were not only obvious in the pictures but also impressive in absolute values: 12% more flex!.
Of course, some rubbing did occur in the rear, but... that's OK.
Also the handling became a bit (only a bit) more vague.

Here they go. Sorry for the Greek words showing on them, I understand it is Greek to you...


















The ramp measurement is in cm and was taken just before the rear left wheel lifted off the ground

ThunderbirdJunkie digs it

Yes indeed!
I wanted a second set of wheels for my mud tyres and the local Chrysler shop had the courtesy to give me 4 Nitro wheels for free.

Hello, I'm from Spain, I'm going to buy a 09 KK CRD and are very good news for me that you have a lift kit for your CRD, I was sure that not was possible. I was thinking if you could tell me the references of the components lift kit because I'm going to try to buy it here in Spain. Are you satisfied with it? Any remarcable issues? Thank you very much and best regards from Spain!!!

To be honest when I installed the lift (1 year ago) there was no particular reference in Old Man Emu catalogues for the KK.
So, after reviewng the specs of my new Jeep, I decided to order the part number referring to KJ.
Well, it fitted very nicely with no problems. Because of the heavy diesel engine, I prefereed the "heavy duty" option for the front part.
Overall I am quite happy, but recently I added an additional 3/8'' spacers to the front struts which (I believe) was necessary as the front part was standing lower.
I am sure that by now OME may have a separate part numbet for KKs.
But if you also look in this forum there are now quite a few American shops that offer lifts up to 4'' !!

Great!! I'll do the same setup as you. I've waiting long time my jeep (bad times for the economy but finally I think I'm very near...) so I've spent my time looking and looking for lift kits (Daystar, Revtek, Skyjacker, Teraflex and Jba) but all those are engineered for KK with petrol engine and I doubted its behaviour with our heavy CRD. That's the reason because I became very glad when I saw your Jeep. After a year usage, do you think it should be necessary extra parts like A-arms or it's enough? How it drives on road after lift kit? Thank you very much for your response, it's very very helpful!!! Best regards from Spain...

With only the OME suspesion on the ride was excellent and less bouncy (I am sure you are experience this in your rear axle).
After adding the extra 3.8'' spacers in the front, well the whole handling is a bit less precise, but I am still happy with it.
After all the KK is a very capable vehicle which can take you to places where most "modern 4x4s" don't even dream of going. It only needs some more clearance!!!
