x2i think that they have great stuff, butttttt it may be priced a little high for the amount of lift it gives you thats why we dont hear much about them.
Here ya go. Mine with OME 2" and stock tires:I've not once seen an xj or mj nor any other vehicle running an ome.
I've heard almost nothing about them.
i've looked at their MJ rear suspension setup and rated it at a FAIL rating.
I've looked at their front suspension (as close as I can) and rate it slightly above Rusty's from what I can tell.
NONE of that is good in my book.
Just so you know, I have Old Man Emu AAL's. They are not like traditional AAL you see out there. These aren't thick-as$ springs that you add for lift. They are actually designed to increase spring rate 20%, not lift it, but you do get some lift out of them and they do not sag because it's been over a year and i've hauled a bunch of stuff and no sagging. The OME AAL is pretty much the main leaf with the bushing ends cut off. It's like adding another stock xj leaf to a stock xj pack. OME designed their AAL to compliment their spring packs so they balance them out really well, unlike other manufacturers who just make a regular AAL spring to add to anything and these normally ride rough. I had Rough country AAL as my first lift and it....well.....SUCKED! It rode so rough and I took it off a couple weeks later. When i added the OME AAL to my OME pack, there was no change in ride quality, which surprised me until I researched on what exactly the OME leaf spring is (technically not an AAL ).Muddeprived, nice rig, but AAL's are absolutely NOT quality no matter what. any way you go, a kit coming with AAL's is worth a sack of crap, because it will fail and sag. some have luck, but that's oh, 20 out of a hundred, if that.
Hey dude, how much lift are you running? It seems we have pretty much identical rigs here (lift-wise). I have OME 2" kit, with OME AAL, coil spacers, shackles and still running OME 2" shock absorbers. I have a hard time parting with the shocks cuz they are so darn nice so i found a way to extend them I'm currently at 4.5" with RC's drop brackets. It rides like a dream :thumbsup: Did you keep your shocks or swap em out for longer ones?OME is simply the best kit out there that you can buy if ride quality & durability are your criteria. I've had an OME 3" kit on my XJ for years, and last year we added 2" spacer up front, plus 1" lift shackles & OME full length AAL in rear. I beat the snot out of my XJ when I go wheeling and my suspension has yet to embarrass me or fail me. Flexes like everyone else, maybe better. Then I drive home comfy. Yes, it's expensive and I whined about the price, but I bought it. Dirk at DPG Offroad will give you a great deal.
I'm about at 5" in the back, a hair under in the front. Yes, we're almost identical, but my front springs were the OME ZJ springs which gave 3". The rear leafs were 3" on the manufacturer's site (I might be able to get a part # or link), the AAL gave 1" and the JKS shackles added 1". I'm running OME long travel shocks, though.muddeprived said:Hey dude, how much lift are you running? It seems we have pretty much identical rigs here (lift-wise).
