Pros: very complete and well made product
Cons: pricey and install directions are limited (hard copy)
Recommended? Yes

Comments: i purchased a complete OME (old man emu) 2.3-3 inch lift kit from Rocky Road Outfitters. all the components are very well made i have not installed yet on my 1986 jeep cj7 frame as i am starting from the ground up. i will add to review when i have more to report. the directions that came with it is limited and pertains to swapping out lifts not starting from the ground up. i do understand that updating lifts verses starting over new is 2 different process.

Price: $800.00
Pros: Good quality
Cons: HD springs very stiff
Recommended? Yes

Comments: While the components appear to be high quality; the HD springs are far too stiff, and the shock valving is too heavy. This should be called a "CJ Kit" because that's how it made my TJ ride.

Pros: Very easy to install..improved the ride significantly
Cons: Needed rear shock relocation brackets for a proper fit...wasn't a big deal but wish I had known in advance.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Very good suspension..definitely get some rubicon rear shock relocation brackets to keep the rear shocks from rubbing or knocking or rear axel

Pros: Far more substantial than the stock components
Cons: None so far.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This is a great product. Fairly easy to install, however it doesn't come with install instructions. You can easily find a set of XK instructions on this site. Get a good pair of spring compressors… air tools seriously helped with this.

Price: $827.99
Pros: made in USA, smooth ride, looks good
Cons: a few issues installing the coil springs (bump stops in the way, springs are really hard to compress so they fit)
Recommended? Yes

Comments: A great kit, gave me the lift i needed for my 31" tires, plus a smooth ride, and it loos pretty nice as well. Shocks are sturdy and well built, the kit is a little pricy though. Purchased from Quadratec, Made in USA. Only issues we had while installig it were that we had to lift the jeep up pretty high with the jack and jack stands so the axles would drop low enough for the coil springs; we had to use some clamps to compress the springs so they would go on. Not a major issue though, everything else went on easily in about an hour. All in all, Great quality, looks, and a nice ride for the price.

Pros: NICE ride for everyday! Makes the Jeep better off-road too, of course.
Cons: None I've encountered yet.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Tried another brand but it was too stiff, about bounced off a road just because of washboard surface. We don't intentionally go rock crawling so don't need a big lift. The OME lift fits our needs and stretches our off-road limits but can still be driven everyday in town. In town driving is every bit as good as the OEM suspension. Looks good, too!

Pros: Nice lift looks great.
Cons: Could be more comfortable and handle the bumps better.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Not as comfortable and durable as I was expecting. It's still a pretty rough ride. I was not impressed with the fact that my new coils were chipped up in the box either.

Price: $700.00
Pros: durable, full kit, easy install
Cons: none really
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Excellent lift kit - gives the WK nice bold stance, got about 3.5 in front 2.5 rear.. gives about 1'' additional articulation. The cream of the crop for WK folks, my only regret is ill have about 150 lbs of skids and gear bolted to this thing, should have gone with the HD. But it rides amazing and it preforms above expectation offroad. An excellent product.

Pros: Improved stability, firm suspension.
Cons: Expensive
Recommended? Yes

Comments: OME say 2" lift, when i measured it, it was 3-3˝".
The original WK suspension is way too soft for me, with the OME lift it completely changed my Jeep. Now its firm and a joy to drive.

Price: $715.00
Pros: nice complete kit
Cons: expected more down ward travel
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I got the medium duty springs. I was expecting them to be a little bit stiffer but I think it will keep the wife happy for now. It raised the front 2.5 in in the front and 2 in in the back. I measured the down ward travel in the front and it was only 1 inch more than stock. I was expecting 2 inches. There is plenty of threads left on the shock but you need to tighten all the way or you will get clunking in the front.

Price: $900.00
Pros: Fantastic articulation and great ride both on and off road
Cons: no upper or lower control arms come with the kit. Rather expensive for what you get, but it is very well made.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I purchased the OME ZJ/LJ springs with OME shocks. The kit is very well made and installation is fairly easy. For best results, I recommend using a JKS adjustable trac bar and JKS quick disconnects.

I also recommend using sway bar collars to prevent the sway bar from shifting from side to side, which appears to be a common issue with lifted TJ’s

Pros: Good ride (light duty), quality system, lives up to its reputation, flexes well
Cons: Light duty not quite 2", less when skid plates are added
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Not realizing there were multiple versions of the kit available, the shop I worked with ordered the light duty kit. For a stock Jeep it's ideal, but I have many skids and need some additional stiffness. Suspension rides as good as new Jeep did. Quality system.
