V6 guys, Which ome lift did you choose!!?? (HD\MD)

Im going to lift my 2009 3.7 WK here in the spring.. going to start piecing everything together now. Im looking to run a 265/70 17 M\t tire on the stock wheels, and im just wondering what kit you guys choose? i kno they recomend the MD for us v6 guys because we weigh less. but im still undecided.. i dont really plan on wheeling it to hard, just some casual off roading for hunting and stuff.. but should i just go with the HD in case i end up adding a whole bunch of stuff to the truck down the road? V6 guys, How does you OME kit ride and what would you recommend?

I went with OME HD on my V6. I'm EXTREMELY pleased with it. I think some might consider the ride a little stiff, but I like it. Plus, as you said, it's nice being able to add to the Jeep without worrying about too much sag. My WK rides unbelievably well off road. I'd definitely recommend it.

HD on my V6. Loving every second of it. Got a little more lift, and just overall feels more stable.

I went with the MD 2 years ago and have had no complaints, it rides firm but still comfortable.

I ended up with the HD OME. Love it. It is a bit stiffer then stock. I like it, girl friend hates it. Turned out nice tho.
