        With this lift what is the biggest size tire can you have?

        • Hello, I would recommend a 33" tire size just to make sure there is no rubbing or clearance issues.

        Is this kit complete? Do I need anything else to get up and running well?

        • The Old Man Emu 2 in. Light Load Lift Kit w/ Shocks (07-17 Wrangler JK 4-Door) will be a complete kit and no additional parts would be needed.

        Have a 2016 Jeep JKU Rubicon. From all that I have read I Am Confused on the light load vs the heavy load lift. ARB rep recommended light coils for the front and HD for the rear. However, they do not make a kit for that. I have a lightweight AL front bumper w/winch. Think only 65 lbs for the winch. the bumper is lighter than stock. I have a hardtop w/Gobi roof rack. Future rear bumper w/o tire carrier. Will go to 34x10.5 tires at the most. Which is only about 6 extra lbs for the spare. I have added a transmission skid plate. I've read that the HD is quite bouncy if you do not have all that extra weight. I'd like your opinion on which kit, the sport or the HD?

        • Contact Josh at ARB-USA. Sounds to me like you need the light unless you're putting a heavy steel bumper on the front. Josh will get you sorted.

        I've got a 2016 Sahara with Rubicon HR bumpers, 32" wheels, and I'll probably add a Warn VR8-S. I'd like a small amount of lift, 2-2.5", and run this as a daily driver. Would this be a good setup without a loss of streetability? Also, does this kit need an exhaust spacer or anything else not included?

        • This would be a great kit for your Jeep. You will need the exhaust spacer for your 2016 Wrangler.

        Does this kit require the use of wheel spacers if using stock 17” wheels? I am looking at running 285 75r17.

        • You will require spacers with this lift and 285/70R17 tires when using stock wheels.

        I have new 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited (17" rims) and use for my daily driver - almost exclusively on-highway. Do you have a kit that will provide for a much smoother highway ride from this thing? 1 answer
        I own a Rubicon Hard Rock edition. Do plan on getting a winch installed on factory bumper. Currently have full safari rack installed. Should I go with light duty or heavy duty system? 1 answer
        With the OME light kit, do you recommend also adding exhaust spacers and geometry correction brackets? I've read that since the shocks aren't as long flexed as some of the lifts closer to 2.5" (e.g., TF), that you won't need all the additional components like sway bar links and brake relocation brackets. Thank you again. 1 answer

            Review from Old Man Emu 2-2.25 in. Light Load Suspension Lift Kit w/ Shocks (07-18 Jeep Wrangler JK 4 Door)

            Jeep JKU 15 Install...

            I installed this lift on a 2015 JKU. After 8 hours of perfecting every bit of the install it looked perfect. This lift is sitting at 3.25 inches after install on a factory JKU sport that’s got nothing stored inside and has a hard top. Instructions online are missing the pan hard relocation bracket and bump stops. -Bump Stops are installed on the rear.. -Panhard Relocation bracket is installed on the rear.. -Make sure to torque everything down with a torque wrench and get an alignment at the dealer when you are done.

            Install was straight forward on rear you do need to put load on rear to get bottom of shocks to line up front was a little more time to figure out due to length of new springs and to top shock bolt an adjustable track bar would have made putting back together a lot easier ride has definitely improved over stock got ful 2 1/2 inches with steel bumpers on front and rear sons friend had a lift in his garage definitely helped

            Smooth ride with Old Man Emu

            Easy installation with a Good Friend 4.5 hours. Took it on some middle of the road trails here in Arizona, exceptionally smooth ride on the wash boards and dips.

            It took 5 hours to complete the install, you only still on home. Very good ride.

            Great lift.

            Replaced my TF budget boost with this lift and couldn't be happier. Rides much better.
