Sliders are plastic. Skid plates and tow hooks were an option on '08 WK Limited. They came with QD-II option though.

I got the OME lift all installed, only to have my new moduflex chrome wheels and BFG Mud tires (255/75/17) not fit

Now I've have to get some wheel spacers :damnit:


Below is the lift done with my stock wheels... They look like donuts

Looks good man, how was the lift to put on. Difficult or any problems that occurred while installing?

Thanks man

The rear is a slightly more difficult than changing your oil, in other words: easy. It took maybe an hour for the entire rear swap.

The front is a whole 'nother story. You're going to need a spring compressor, a lot of time, and some luck. My brother in law is a mechanic (that's whose garage the jeep's in) and it took him and another guy 3 hours to do the front. The problem is this one bolt, I believe it's the lower clevis bolt. That bolt was impossible to get out since it tends to seise and all hammer blows are absorbed by the rubber boot around it.

I wasn't around to install the front but I did take the stock front stuff out. I think we did it a little differently then most do it. We ended up leaving that pesky bolt in and just taking the strut and coil out by using an impact hammer and pushing down where the strut connects. This pretty much assures the stock strut will be useless after this, lol.

I'm not exactly sure how they installed it since I was running really behind and they offered to do it for me. However, that reminds me to ask them how they got it done, lol.
