OME ZJ/LJ combo lift on TJ (Lets see the pictures)

Hi I want to see pictures of OME (Old Man Emu) ZJ/LJ springs on TJ. I am especially interested in seeing someone with OME ZJ front springs without a winch.

why would you do that?

they make the springs specific and the shocks are valved for the winch and not winch...

I want to see too. Do I wait for the bumper to be made and then painted before doing the lift or lift it now and add bumper and winch in about 8 weeks.

Because my front and the rear of the Jeep are getting heavier than the springs original Hd springs were designed to handle. I need firmer ride off-road.

I have OME 934/949 (ZJ/LJ) springs on a non-armored no-winched soft-top LJ. 934's are rated at 180 lbs, 949 at 216 lbs. Rides like an empty grain cart (maybe not that rough..) but handles very well. I knew I was going to be stiff, I like a firm ride and little lean. It still keeps all 4 on the ground from bump stop to bump stop. It is getting a little more forgiving as the miles go by.. Plus, no sag with a load etc and she is ready to gain some weight in the future. I was in a really big rush when I put the springs etc. in and forgot to measure pre-lift height, but it stands pretty tall, certainly over the 2.5" mark by quite a bit. Enough to convince me to buy an adjustable front TB.

Dogs and sandbags make it ride a bit better, Id do it over again the same, like I said, I like robust springs as long as they still handle well. Heavier than stock front bumper at least is in my future.

With out having actually measured the tub for levelness, I would say it is exactly level - for sure not lower in the front.

No pictures yet - sort of pointless in a picture thread... sorry. Maybe Ill get some photos some time.

and to the best of my knowledge, the OME shocks are all valved the same. Spring rate and lengths are the variables among kits.

Yes I do have lot of extra weight. All I am missing is a winch in the front. Once I get the winch, i will have more weight of not only the winch but also the winch plate and warn grill guard.
Here are the pictures of my Jeep as it stands right now. I will put in ZJ/LJ springs as soon as I receive them.
