Maybe I missed the post about how they ride compared to OME. Can someone compare?

They are different jeeps, but the pics are correct as far as stock and lifted.

Only stock pic I could find of a jeep in our files.

The need for extended bumpstops is based on tire size, not lift height.

If you run larger than stock size tires and you disconnect your sway bar, you'll need extended bumpstops.

I understand that however some springs, like my stockers can get over compressed and damaged. I happily run 31's and love all the flex however my front springs are toast.

Noob questions...

Will this lift provide enought clearance to run 32"s? Also, do I need to consider a track bar relocation or adj. track bar?

Thanks.

You would clear 32's. I would definitely run bump stop extensions.

How long will this price be good for? I am seriously interested but need to take care of a couple other things on my project Jeep before I attack the suspension.
