Hey I noticed that the site said that the kit clears up to 31's, is that just being conservative? I'd think that a 2 1/2 lift would clear 32's...

with a 1" BL and bumpstop extensions you could clear 33s

i run this set up (OME springs) with 2" extended bumpstops front and rear and it doesn't rub at full flex on 33x10.5 tires

The site says it clears 31's on a stock rim. It also says it clears 32's on a 4.5 backspaced rims.

although bman isn't wrong, i wish i had saved up more and bought everything i needed at first, because now i'm going back and adding all the parts my lift didn't come with and probably spending more. my axles shifted enough with 2.5" of lift that i'm going to get adjustable trackbars when funds allow
Didnt your OME kit come with the rear trackbar bracket? There is no 2-2.5 kit made thats comes with every part you just listed.

i don't have the kit, just the springs

and no, there's not a 2.5 kit that comes with everything but in theory he's not wrong. i wish i had followed similar advice when i bought my REBB

You dont need much more for this lift. I would add a front and rear adjustable track bar, 1" Body lift and 1" MML with sway bar disconnects. you dont need adjustable track bars but will center your axles to were they should be. but i would lay the pricing for you with this kit I payed about 1200 bucks for mine I have OME lift but you can get a very similiar setup just much cheaper.

RC= $300
Sway bars disco= $50
Both rear and front trackbar= $260
body lift= $120
motor mount lift= $50
total= $780
you can get all this about $780 not a bad price to be very "complete setup" for 33" tires. again I paid 1200 for my setup which I love. but this a cheap and a very simple and very affective way of fitting 33" on your jeep. I also think doing this setup is very easy to install with basic tools it took me a couple of days to finish mine (Im no mechanic) but I learned alot the hardest part will probably would doing the MML, if you have a/c in your jeep but it was to bad just takes some elbow grease. I also did 90% of this by myself.

So i say if you dont want to break the bank go for it

Yeah, totally. probably would have went with this if it came before I pulled the trigger on my lift. Now if you decided to with in sye you can then get the tummy tuck done down the road and that would make it even sweeter!

you can run an 8" lift and only clear 31x10.50's if you run stock backspacing. if you run 3.75" of backspacing you can clear nearly any 12.50" wide tire the stock axles can handle
