OME 3 Inch Lift Questions

I am sure there are a ton of threads on the Old Man Emu lift kit as it seems to be one of the most popular. I recently ordered the kit from Jeepinbyal.com. I also ordered the extended rear bump stops.

I was wondering If I needed to purchase anything else before I install. Want to make sure I have everything before I tear apart the Jeep. Also, are there any good walkthroughs or a how-to install so I can use as a guide? I will be posting pictures here of the process as soon as I start.

Picture before lift.

You'll need the extended front bumpstops too. In the tech section on lost keeps theres a good write up for a jba lift, same procedure as ome.

I don't think it's a requirement but adding the JBA upper control arm's made a huge difference in the front of the vehicle. The dealership when I went to re-align the vehicle after putting them in said he was surprised with how much of a difference they made the front of the vehicle sit

Also is it a good idea to add coil isolators to the setup?

Hey staubitzk, what site did you get the JK light bar from? Was it hard customizing it to fit on the bumper? What exactly did you have to do?

No, My KK isn't lifted

But I have 2 Hella rallye 4000 on the light bar (because I relocated the tabs to the front of the lightbar so this big hellas can fit)
