They also use adjustable track bars, not sure if they are OME.
As a general rule of thumb you can retain the stock front driveshaft up to about 3" actual lift. The rear on a 4dr can be retained up to about 5". On a 2dr it's about same as the front. Although I have a very seriously set up JK (TF 4" LCG long arm) I'm bullish on AEV adn OME 2 - 2.5" kits on rigs that will be primarily daily drivers. In particular, the AEV kit is very impressive, particulalry when supplemented with their front control arm brackets.
See the thing is it is a dd but when I do hit the trails I wouldn't mind pushing it to its limit ... See in my eyes dd or not I will not put cheap crappy parts on my rig at all if its not a well known brand I will not buy it ... Just like I will not puck lift at all unless I'm leveling the rig ... I am willing to plank money into a good product
