You can run the bilstein 5100 strut set at .75" lift, which will give you a little more travel, and 2" spacer out back.

That's exactly what I planned on doing but I like the leveled look more than rake. I can deal with a little rake but I don't really like the stock rake

Btw. I like the new website and how you all offer the already modified ome kit. I just thought that was cool

I'm not sure to be honest. I called a local company and asked what they can do. They told me the name but I forgot. I'm away at work. It's 2.5inch front and 2inch rear. I ordered new factory struts and shocks to go in while they do it.

That doesn't really give more travel and it's .25" less lift. Good option though

If I go (for the front) md coils, 5100 struts and .25" strut plate, wouldn't that put me at roughly 22.75" after everything settles? And I'm not too worried about the slightly less in travel because almost all of my off-roading will be around my farm and hunting club, through a little mud and stuff like that. Not a whole lot of rocks, meaning the slight hindrance in travel doesn't bother me. Btw. WieSeL: how much did your strut plates (with longer studs) cost you if I went that route?

$70 for new strut mounts. $60 for 4 strut plates. I decided to go higher after the original OME so went that route. Didn't want the bilsteins because it compresses the springs more resulting in a stiffer ride. Got the MD kit for ride quality in the first place

Today I got some 255/70 Nitro Terra Grapplers put on finally. Now the Jeep doesn't look weird driving around with a 2in lift with 245/65s.

Also looking into why the oil pressure light blinks after the oil has warmed up. Made the mistake of using Jiffylube (I know I know). Never blinked before. Now it does so mechanics are looking into it.

*update- turns out they messed up the oil sending unit. That was what I thought might have happened.

Ordered my Catch can, and got some clear smoke plasti dip in the mail to do my chrome. But it started raining, and it's cold. Project on hold.

Haha. It is only Virginia. It's all good though - below 29, I stop noticing.
