It's a very good lift, ride quality is great, despite it not being Currie. I have since added Rokmen control arms, but it wasn't because I needed them, it was because I wanted them....again, not Currie.
Quit being silly Jeff...you have Currie parts where it matters. OME 2.5" springs are well known to kick ***.

I've been planning on doing a lift to my TJ for quite some time... other projects and interestes have always gotten in the way. I've always planned on going with OME from DPG since its all I need. Since i've made my choice on kit, other companies (Currie) have come out with arguably better kits, but my needs are still the same. Should I pay more for a "better" kit that does more than I need? Or just save my $$$ and put it in other areas that I need... I'll be ordering from Dirk when the time is right.

Just run Currie links and throw the OME coils in there. Worth every penny.

I do have Currie steering components, that's true. But my suspension is Rokmen and OME, except for the Antirock.

As much as I like Currie, I won't say it's them or nothing, when it comes to suspension components.

Don't the specific Currie mfg'd control arms have one big flaw in them being not being able to adjust short or long enough? I thought I read somewhere that they have an issue with that, when needing to dial in the axle pinion angle.......maybe someone could clarify?

Dude, you have JJ's....you have Currie parts where it matters. You won't find anyone saying that the actual Currie arms are superior to Rokmen arms. They're identical where it matters except that Rokmen uses thicker tubing.

You've been reading old posts. A couple years since they addressed that.

Ah, OK, gotcha.......so the current Currie branded arms are fine and fully adjust like all the other top tier brands then. Good to know.
