That's the big question - are 32" tires where you want to be? Or are you wanting to go taller?

I have the OME kit on special by the way so send me a PM if you want to chat.

Go OME HD - with some massaging you can get bigger than 265's on.

I just installed my OME HD lift yesterday and got 3.75 inches in the front... wow... that's amazing for a 2 inch kit... I haven't measured the rear yet as I got too tired and wet so I went inside to go to bed.

I will post some when I get some daylight and the rain/fog/sleet stops. I had to finish up tonight in th pouring rain then dropped it off to have the alignment done. I won't have it back until tomorrow night so Wednesday morning I will take some pictures. I did measure a gain of 3 inches in the rear.

I just ordered mine from Kolak today. Now to get home and watch the UPS man drive by for the next few days. It took me a lot of reading from individual Web sites (drink it as you may) to several different forms. It seems the happiest of them all have been the OME.

you could go MD or HD. i believe Nate started out with MD coils- but once he armoed the hell out of his WK he needed the HD coils. daily driving id go MD, and that will definitely fit 265s/255s easily. HDs with alittle massaging of the welds will clear 285s nicely. you could even go HD fronts to compensate for the hemi and MDs in the rear for a nice ride.

ive only been in a ZJ with an OME kit and that thing rode great, but hell a ZJ with a 4.0 compared to a WK with a V8.. no comparison in weight.

im planning on going MD when i do my OME- i DD mine so i dont need too much armor.

I'm curious why you would want to go bigger than 265/70s? Are you looking for more ground clearance or do you have 265/70s and feel they're too small? I have 265/70/r17 Duratracs on my WK and they are plenty big to get through some serious muck and I'm never hurting for traction. Keep in mind that the bigger you go = less gas mileage and less performance...
