How to choose which OME system

Id say most manufacturers that make lifts for the jeep wrangler would be specific enough... I know they wont fit on say a f150... As for a kit for a 4dr vs 2dr plenty of other manufacturers also do. What actually makes them so strong or much better than others.

EMU has a good reputation for springs and shocks. Part of lifting your vehicle and selecting a lift is taking into consideration how you'll use the vehicle, what's in the kit and what you'll need to add that's not included.

Better kits include more of the components you need to look at not just springs and shocks.
control arms
control joint type
track bar
bump stops
sway bar extensions / relocation
brake line extensions

You also need to think about drive shafts, ball joints, tie rods, drag links, diff breather hose extensions.
