Fargo, if you haven't bought the skidz yet, they make a version for a body lift. If you have, you might could sell them and get the other version.

Guys, I just installed the OME 2.5" springs this past weekend and I love it! It clears the 33's perfectly and the only complaint is not putting the .75" spacer up front to level it out. I havent put the BL in yet its still sitting here next to me. I will likely do that once I get some other things out of the way like a spare tire, steering, skids, etc. The Jeep handles amazingly on the road and it rides better than it did stock. I will get pictures in a little bit for everyone to see!

I already have them. I suppose I could cut the mounts up and rebuild them for a BL if it bothers me though.

RockZJ - you must have a light Jeep if you can clear 33s without the BL. But good for you if you can.

OK back on topic. Let see more pictures as the OP wanted.

How do they work as a step? I've got nerfs now and they work great for my kids is why I ask. (sorry for the thread jack).

I have the Jeeperman skidz with the diamond plate top. They work great as a step for my wife and my 2 yr and 3 yr old. Thats one of the reasons I went with this style. Its also another reason to get the 2" lift plus BL. It keeps the step an inch lower for my family.

I dont know if its exactly that my Jeep is light. Ive got all the heavy goodies on her so far minus the winch and spare. I will be adding the spacer up front and the BL soon enough. Here are some pics!

That looks great. I was actually leaning towards the BDS 2" but if I could do 33s on the OME without the BL that is very tempting. Which springs do you have?

To run 33" with the OME lift, I would definitely recommend the 1" BL. Even with the BL, I have managed to get my 285 75r16's to rub a time or two. Without the BL the rubbing would most definitely be more severe.

Good Luck!

You have a bunch of pictures already, but here are a few more for you. I apologize for the driveway shots.

it looks like you have the front 10mm spacer...did you need to add more? Any spacers in the rear...did you install the 10mm in the back too?

That's what I used. It was a very complete kit and Dirk provides great customer service.
