I have the 4" Zone endlinks in rear and the swaybar angle is much better. I have the OEM links up front which ride better than extending them.

IMO, at stock height: the front factory links are too long and the rear factory links are too short.

I'm running the 4" ones but either one will work since we're only talking an inch here.

Yo JimmydaGreek, I am about to install your same lift/tire combo minus the 3/4" spacers...did you encounter a lot of rubbing when you first installed the 3" OME HD springs and 265/70/17 BFG A/T's?

The Jeep is looking great by the way!

Yes, lot's of rubbing on even slight turns and in reverse while turning big time. Those BFG's are meaty as heck! I installed the RC 3/4" spacers in front and OME 10mm spacers in back and that helped a lot but I still need to trim if I'm going to offroad and flex. If you don't want to trim and are going to go with BFG's, I'd recommend sticking to 245's, but I wanted the bigger tire.

Thanks...

Do you think I'd be able to trim enough to run the OME HD set up with the BfG's without rubbing?should I add the spacers? Ive been warned not to go over 3" of lift. This is my daily driver, but it will see its fair share trail time.

That's what I run and I trimmed the front a bit and now only rub at full lock and fully flexed.

You got any pictures of your set up?

I just installed the OME HD springs the other day and it would suck to have to pull it apart to add some spacers. A little trimming is cool with me...

I know what you mean on the spacers. I actually have a set to install but I'm waiting on the fronts so I can do them all at the same time. Original install of springs shocks and trackbar took about 3 hours. Second time for just spacers should take a lot less time.

my buddy is a mechanic so him and i did it at his garage, it took like 3.5 hours. the front shocks were a pain in the a** to get out but we got it. no loss of handling what so ever, she drives like a dream. i was debating between the bfg all terrains or the goodyear wranglers, and im very impressed with the bfg's. surprisingly very quiet ride
