Ome

Edwin...
Any complaints with the OME and 35's? I have a '08 six speed that I'm thinking of doing the same combination. Any rubbing, or drive line issues? I see you have the HD, I know some have used the 4 dr kit on the 2 dr.

BTW awesome rig!

Mine is the 2 door HD kit with 3/4 Skyjacker front and 10mm OME rear spacers. I have added the FT control arms/trackbars, crown extended brake lines, JE Reel 1310 HD front and 1350 rear driveshafts, RockKrawler tie rod/drag link, and it's very smooth at 80mph on the highway with 7.1 degrees of caster.
You definitely want 2" bumpstop extensions if running factory fenders, I have 1.5" custom aluminum blocks on the rear and it's nearly enough. Get the OME LT (long travel) shocks (weren't out yet when I built my kit), and if you want more lift, especially if you're going to be running heavy bumper/winch/spare tire maybe the Teraflex 3" coils instead of the OME coils and retainers for the coils on the rear.
A heavier rear sway might not be a bad idea if running more lift than I have (around 40.5" fender lip to pavement) assuming great street handling is important to you.
This setup is near perfect, but is a little limited on articulation, but it's more of a trail runner than a rock krawler.
Substitute flat fenders, stubby front bumper, the LT shocks, and coil retainers rather than the bump stop extensions and it would be more in the rock krawler style we see with so many of the Jeeps today.

Edwin did you ever replace your driveshafts? What what is your gear ratio?

Oh...and thanks for the sticky! Yay!

OK, as a TJ owner and one who's taken a little time to warm up to the JK, I have to say that's my favorite 2dr JK ever. Very nice

PS Where was that? Almost looks like Enchanted Rock area, but that's pretty far south from Richmond...

EDIT: Oh,
. Same general part of Texas, though it looks like it's about an hour and a half from Enchanted Rock. Looks nice

Great, thanks for all the details! I am really torn between 33's and 35's. My thoughts are OME coil kit and 33's or terraflex 3" kit with 35's. Like I said I have an '08 Rubicon (six speed), concerned I may regret the 35's due to power. Only reason I haven't bit the bullet yet on this purchase.
Anyway, thanks again!

You've got the 4.10 gears and 6 speed, if you really want the 35s go for them, gearing doesn't really fix the lack of HP anyway. With 4.88 gears the Jeep is a 6-speed, with 4.10 gears it's a 5 speed with a useful OD.

Edwin,

You have any dirty pictures? All I've ever seen are the spotless brand new bumpers, wheels, and tires that are very shiny. I'd like to see her in action on the trail!!

Good to know! I am leaning towards the 35's, they "fit" really good under the JK IMO...
Again thanks for the info!

Yup, Katemcy. Damn shame that place is closed. Shane is trying find some new property, only time will tell.

ok need help. have a 3.5 lift and getting 35x12.5 BFG KM2's. I would like to stay with a 15 inch rim but need advice on what brand will work (avoid brake rubbing and stuff) and how much backspacing. Going with 15 saves money in a big way!
