Thank you all for the replies! I'm gonna stick with my RRO for now. I have stock shocks in the back and bilstien up front. I'm goin to upgrade to the 5100 like Indyblue. I'm okay with 265s so I'm going to start with new tires and shocks for a smoother ride. Happy jeepin

Here are pictures of my jeep with an OME HD lift. It gave me 3.75 in the front and 3 in the back. It seems too high in the front though... I'm actually trying to figure out how to lower the front a bit now! lol!

You could always space the rear up a little more...

I thought of that but it only needs to be an increase of about an inch... not sure where to find a spacer that small. Plus - my other problem is that it looks like the wheel is getting too close to the front of the rear wheel well - like it is not centered - i assume the only way to fix that is with longer control arms (also not easy to find).

Any one know where to get a 1 inch spacer?

Duh, haha. I could have just looked at the rear photo, lol.

Thanks for pointing that out. I've been looking for a pair but they are so expensive.

I like the ride a lot. I drive 50 miles a day so I have a pretty good test between highway and regular in town driving. It rides just like it I feel it should from the factory. It doesn't seem too stiff or harsh - just the right amount of body roll but not too much like the worn factory set up. I noticed with the old struts/coils/shocks that the nose would "dive" on hard braking but it no longer does that. Just about my only criticism is that the front is noticeably higher than the rear. I am not sure how to fix this though. Conventional wisdom would say get something heavy for the front. Well... sounds like a great idea but most heavy things for a WK are bu-co bucks. As for raising the back - that will pull the axle/tires closer to the rear door and I'll need an adjustable track bar.

Anyone know who sells longer rear upper and lower control arms?

So I am not sure what I can do other than just leave it as is. Hopefully the front will settle a bit.

The tires are 255/75r17 BF Goodrich KM1 Mud Terrains from a Rubicon. They are worn though with a little less that 50% of the tread left.
