There's a set of built 2.5T rockwells with wilwood brakes for sale by me for 2500 bucks...with detroit lockers and all. REady to install. If only I had money for them and the 44" terra tires I'd need to take advantage of them.
Step 3 should be go to step one, thier customer service is so pitiful wouldn't give them a dime just on principal.
my sentiments exactly, they still advertise a Hemi kit too, try getting one of those.

I have an OME HD 2.5" kit. I also have 33x12.5x33" Dunlop mud rovers on the stock rims with wheel spacers....
When I installed the lift before buying tires I decided I wanted to run 33"s... Well there were two ways to do it. A BL or a grinder with a cut off wheel. One would end up costing over $200 after MML and such and one would be about $4 for some cut off wheels.
Now the first option offers no benefit to me right now since I'm not doing a tummy tuck until I get into my real build. All it would do it make my body a little more sway worthy. The second would leave me with a slightly Lower COG and and a Jeep that looks all my own. Oh and it left me with $196, enough for some used meats, mounting, and some brews
I chopped off almost all of the front fender except the very top, that might go soon All I had to do in the back was remove the flares. I might trim some when I get new meats that are fuller on tread. Took an hour or so and transformed the heep.
During thats not me, it's a buddy
Here are the pieces left over, you can see the parts from the side of the fender are over an inch in alot of places. (Who needs hockey pucks?)
AEV fenders $2000
Vanco Hydroboost $800 (given you don't need a new pump)
Meats (37") $1500
HD steering $400
Axles $2500 (and that's a conservative estimate)
Really, AEV comes out with some really neat stuff, but is it really practical or is just for show? All that loot for raised fenders and a new hood could get you armor, recovery gear, lift, lockers, a night at the bar, etc, etc...
It's just not worth it to me.
