so does 245 75 16 on Crager wheels with the ome lift sounds like a good plan?? "not a bad way to spend 2k"
or go 31" on 15"..

This is what I drove before. imageuploadedbyautoguide1367964127.631001.jpg

But this is how it ended up after a van ran a red light.

Careful with the 15's. i was looking into going the same thing to have beefier look from bigger sidewall, but several people here said that you will probably have fitment issues with the 15's do to the brakes.

Ya i found out that most 15" wont clear the calipers. Who thinks 265 65 18 would work with the ome lift? I do like the stock wheels..
Nice stance on that 300c btw. How do you like the new jeep in comparison..?

31.5 inch tall tire,
need 3.5-4 inches of lift and swap to at least 4.10 gears
Then,....sure they will work

Yes, I was just on my way to work that morning. Walked away without a scratch. Build like a tank.

I was looking at the OME lifts and the only lift that I see is the OME 1.5" lift. I thought it was a 2.5" lift?

OME 1.50" lift kit KK
Regular Price: $795.82
Special Price: $750.00
http://jeepinbyal.com/jeep-liberty-2...ft-kit-kk.html

is this the lift that you were talking about and can someone post some updated pictures with this lift.

Thank you

Take the time to read through the 1000s of posts on this
OME with 927s in front gives you over 2.5 inches of lift
1.5 is advertised for insurance across the pond

After hours of research on lostjeeps.com, I am without a doubt getting the ome lift. There are tons of pictures with this lift, including page 1 of this thread.
(Option A) 245.75.16 on cargar wheels. (Option B) 245 65 18 on stock wheels?

245-65-18 is an odd ball size , not many that size to choose from
More options with 16 inch really
if buying wheels and lift, get 16 X 7 with 4 inches of backspacing
