Lift question

Sorry if this has been asked a million times. Im picking up a wk this weekend and want to fit some 14' rubicon wheels and tires. Is the OME kit worth the money over other "budget boost kits"? And if it is not, do you guys just run the spacers with stock shocks or is it better to buy longer shocks?

Get the ome coils either hd or md and bilstien shocks. It's cheaper than ome shocks and a great ride. I currently have the ome hd coils with 265/70 tires.

Yes, the OME lift is worth the money and is not a budget boost. It is a true suspension lift.

X2 the OME is worth it. Haven heard anyone not liking it. The Bilstiens are on back order right now but you can order the OME kit with the Blstiens at Crawl-offroad.com. Just have to wait for the shocks to come in.

Get the OME. If you're getting a Hemi get the HD springs. With the earlier model rubicon wheels you have to run a spacer. Not sure on the 14

I've been an OME dealer and a Bilstein dealer for 18 years now and have both OME and Bilstein on special right now. PM me if you'd like to chat about a lift. I've also got budget boost spacer lifts available if you'd prefer something less expensive.
