Thanks guys. Yeah, they're 285s. Also, went with the Hemi. Still plenty of power here. I'll have to check the measurements tomorrow.

Why are you running OME MD in the front and HD in the rear?

Everyday, something new you want to do. Disease of Jeeps.

The bilstein struts are adjustable and the lowest setting gives you 3/4" lift. I was told if I run HD springs with those, I may have geometrical issues

So with the MD springs and 5100 struts, your getting more height than HD, right?

Hemi limited.

The HD springs yield more lift.

Yep, my first plasti dip experience. Pretty easy and painless. For the rear, I put a penny over the reverse sensors so they'd still be functional

Looks good. How much did the 5100'a cost you? I got the OME MD right now and want to go higher. Did you have to do the pinch weld?

Had to do pinch weld because of 285s. You can keep your MDs in front and order the bilstein struts. They adjust from 3/4", 1.5 or 2. They were around $175 a pair.
Got them from Kolak but I saw someone in the forum had a set for sale too
