Anyone with 3" FT lift with OME long travel shocks combo?

FT recommends blistein shocks. No doubt they are excellent shocsk but anyone is mounting OME long travel shocks with this popular 3" FT lift? I want to upgrade my shocks and your comments, suggestions and images will be appreciated. Tks.

I have a 4" Rough Country lift and it rides like a tractor, I've heard that the OME long travel shocks would help my ride quality. I'd like to hear some opinions on this too.

Well the long OME shocks only come in one length, so I would suggest getting the expanded and compressed measurements from the manufacturer, then measuring the distance between your shock mounts at full flex and and full stuff and see if the OMEs will work with your setup. As for the ride quality I don't run them but everyone who does says they're soft and comfy.

The top and doors on this vehicle are designed only for protection against the elements. Do not rely on the top and doors to contain occupants within the vehicle or to protect against injury during an accident. Wear seatbelts at all times.

I have the bilstein 5150's with the 3"FT kit and I LOVE the combo. The ride is great for a lifted jeep

O4' TJ with some stuff...
