Lift question

Hey all. New to the forum and first time jeep owner! I bought myself a black 06 grand Cherokee 5.7 limited for Christmas and am loving it so far. Used to own a 05 f150. So any way I have been reading on here that OME and Superlift are the best suspension lifts for our vehicles. I was skimming through ebay for aftermarket accessories that I will be buying in the future and came across the 3.5 front and 2 in rear Heavy metal lift for my jeep. I searched for info on this on here and didn't see anything on it. I was wondering if they were reliable and all the other details on it. Since its 3.5 in the front it would sit higher than the OME and sit just shorter than the Superlift for a fraction of the cost. I know you get what you pay for lol, but was wondering if this was good since my budget is tight from buying my jeep. Thank you!

"Heavy Metal" lift? Never heard of it.

Superlift
OME
Rough Country
Rocky Road Offroad
Daystar
RockKrawler

Pretty much in that order is what you wanna look at lift wise.

Heavy Metal is a knock off Rock Krawler. Speaking from experience skip the budget boosts and go with OME or Superlift. I had the RRO lift for 2 months then switch to OME because of how awful it handled.

Oh alright. Thanks ca07wk. I figured I would hear that. I will probably be going with the OME since its under half the price of the Superlift, from the sights I've found!

Rustys makes 2" springs for the WK, I'm sure those with a set of Bilsteins wouldn't be a bad ride

I had the front adjustable bilstein shocks and rear bilstein shocks and they improved my ride so much on my f150! What bilsteins are you running with the OME lift?
