Comments: This was a nice kit to install. Looks great too. The biggest problem was the removal of the old units. I had to use a cutting torch to remove the original leaf springs.

Pros Ride improved slightly, holds loads very well, no sagging, flexes very well for SUA and stock shackles.
Cons None so far.
Recommended yes

Comments: Bought it from OK4wd up in NJ, got a good deal and got all 4 36R leafs, new shocks and bushings, but no stickers :( Installed just fine but the bushing kit didnt come with frame side bolt sleeves, i had to re use the old ones,

Pros Complete kit with bumpstop spacer, track bar relocator, springs, and Nitrocharger shocks.
Cons Did not include trim spacers (they are pictured sometimes, but not included).
Recommended yes

Comments: Excellent ride! Restored the front of my Jeep - I have a winch and OBA and it was really starting to sag down.

Pros great ride
Cons little pricey and did not come with instructions.
Recommended yes

Comments: Easy to install, but I had to call quadratec because it did not come with instructions for the shackles, they had no clue. Call ARB but they were not open on weekends so install was delayed. The lift did not come with any hardware so it had to be purchased separate. New u bolts and spring bolts are a must with an old jeep.

Pros Great ride
Came with steering stabilizer
Cons None
Recommended yes

Comments: I did a lot of reading about these kits before I bought and installed the OME kit. Great on-road feel (I commute a lot in my TJ) and even better in the rough stuff. Worth the premium paid, and would recommend to anyone!

Pros rides real smooth on rough roads
Cons none
Recommended yes

Comments: It can be dangerous at highway speeds because it is so soft if you swerve you run the risk of rolling, but it is nice for rough dirt roads

Pros Stock ride, decent price
Cons no instructions, only two year warranty
Recommended no

Comments: Installing the rear track bar relocation bracket was a PITA, make sure you have a short air powered drill to drill the top bracket hole. Otherwise, no further issues, no driveline vibes (I have 1.25" BL & 1" MML on my LJ). If i were to do it again, I most likely go with American made BDS with a lifetime warranty FWIW.

Pros Nice fit, Nice look for a light suspension lift!
Cons OME Sport Nitro's provide firmer ride than anticipated. Great offroad but you defiantly get a feel for the asphalt with these.
Recommended yes

Comments: Very happy overall with the OME deluxe kit. As noted above, the ride is firmer than I expected on the highway but well within tolerances and much better than the worn out factory springs and shocks. Derek at DPG.COM really took the time to make sure I had everything I needed to have a clean install which was greatly appreciated. Kit came with Old Man Emu Sport Nitro Shocks, full leaf packs and coil springs, JKS Adj. Track Bar, JKS Quicker Disconnects, and hardware. Fit was good and other than a few broken bolts to deal with, install went smoothly.

Pros Great lift, especially for a daily driver that needs to retain road handling manners.
Cons It's still only 2.5".
Recommended yes

Comments: Great lift, overall; while only 2.5", it performs as expected. I routinely carry heavy loads in my XJ (camping gear, lumber for woodworking, etc.), and the rear suspension never sags -- stepping up from stock leafsprings, that's a huge improvement.

Pros Easy Install
Ride is awesome
Cons Instructions are a bit suspect...there are none.
Recommended yes

Comments: I did a lot of research before deciding on the OME kit. I have also spent a lot of time in Australia and know these guys have a vast testing ground for some serious off-roading.
Installed the HD kit about 10 months (10,000 miles ago) and have absolutely loved it. I have ridden in friends TJ's with other systems and they might have an extra inch of lift but in my opinion the ride is not nearly a smooth as with the OME. It's a bit more pricey than the average kit but for me...I got what I paid for and more. My next Jeep will have another OME lift for sure!!

Pros Easy install, great ride quality, looks great
Cons Rear track bar instructions were a little confusing, but not a big deal.
Recommended yes

Comments: Fantastic list system. Was easy to install, although getting the old parts out was a different story. Ride quality was improved and off-road articulation was greatly enhanced. Recommended!
