Treblehook, I can also see where I can make this Pro-Comp adapter work too.

We will see.......
Yep, 5/8" is the size you need. I wish you were closer, I have a few of them laying around.


Good luck,

Matt

Scrambler and the OME Springs

Yes they ride real nice. I am really surprised at how much flex these springs can provide. I still need to get an alignment done after the lift before I drive a lot but I am very pleased with this lift. It is WAY better than the old stock sagging springs it had on it. Also, with the rears all around I don't think the WARN 8274 will be noticed at all.

I will post up some more pictures when I get the winch on.

Thanks

Suspension

Do you plan on a lift or just using old YJ springs? I, and I would assume everybody that has posted in this thread would recommend the OME YJ lift. There are others out there but I really like this upgrade. I ordered my kit from Quadratec. They combine the OME springs and bushings with a kit from another vendor. I also used somewhat customized CJ shackles from Jim Crabtree. He makes some solid and beefy stuff and best of all he is a JEEP guy who will work with you on what you need.

Old Man Emu is quality stuff.

There is also a parts list in this thread too.
