TJ OME 2.5"+1.25" hybrid lift on 33s

Anyone running this? Been talking to kolak and I'm thinking about going for it, just wondering what it looks like. I'd like to see stock fenders preferably and then some flex! Also list what else you have on the lift (disconnects, control arms, etc.) anything is appreciated!

It's a good kit. Make sure your setting up for 33's and not 35's. Yeah - i said the same thing.
Heres an alternative to the "2.5" ome w/ BL.

OME ZJ/LJ Lift(2.5", just tougher coils to compensate for the heavy v8/LJ rear ends), Long travel shocks and all 8 RE arms (yeah yeah, they work great but should have put my money else where)
I got more than 2.5" initially and still is more. I dunno like 3-3.5"?
Clears 33s just fine without the BL.
With BL i'm thinking i should be good for 35s, but we'll see..

Thanks guys - I try.

No it's not its a different part number.
Its not actually meant for the TJ right. Its for the ZJ / LJ, but when I called northridge4x4 they suggested it.


A lot of guys have to do the 1.25" BL to make sure 33's dont rub. I, however did not. Perhaps that's related to the coils I got in the ZJ/LJ part # I'm not sure.

You can see setup in my profile... No BL... Just Heavy duty (repeat "Heavy duty" refer to LJ not just "Heavy" for heavy/medium load) OME coils and new OME sport shocks and 3/4" coil spacers front...

Works fine even with my Teraflex single rate disarmed... You just have to put some internal spacers in the base of the front coils so to minimise a little bit the flex and keep 305/70/16 (33/12.5/16) tires away of your fenders... I suppose with 33/10.5/16 or 15 there is no any issue

I have OME springs and a 1.25" BL. I really like the set up. The BL allowed me to install a tummy tuck and gas tank skid that tucks up about 1-2 inches, and the OME springs give enough lift to be effective but not go too high.



older pics before tummy tuck...

I forgot to mention that in the pictures above I still have my front sway bar connected. Also, I am running Rokmen control arms, a SYE and Tom Woods shaft, but I only installed those parts because of the tummy tuck. With the OME lift I never had any vibrations and I didn't need a CV shaft or transfer case lowering kit.

Nice. That looks really good. Definitely the route I'm taking with my lift! Did you install the lift yourself?

thanks. I did do it myself, and it wasn't too bad at all. I was able to do the whole thing with the Jeep on jack stands. The most difficult part was getting the axles to droop enough to get the springs in/out, so a spring compressor came in handy.

Well that's good. I don't have a spring compressor but me and my dad are crafty so we an figure something out. I can't wait to get this system, I've got big plans!

You can rent a spring compressor from some of the auto part stores.
