        Great look and great ride

        I installed this kit on my 08JKU. I already loaded it down with HD bumpers, winch and sliders. I was constantly bottoming out but now I go my Jeep back. After the install the jeep is about 3.5 inches higher but I believe that is due to the pre-install loading on the stock springs. The ride is great and although its a little higher than I wanted I think this is a great kit. My son and I installed the kit in a day but this could have been

        Improved Ride

        If nothing else the ride quality improvement is worth purchasing this kit. I gained the exact height advertised. Install was straight forward took about 4 hours including “beverage” break.

        After 4 months of research

        I had a hard time deciding which lift to go with. Been researching pros and cons, and asking lots of questions. I'm very happy with Old Man Emu lift. Rides higher than 4 inches, but still excellent On Road. I haven't had a chance to take it off road yet. This has been worth the extra $300 of my original price limit.

        Great bang for the buck lift

        This lift is advertised as an 1.5 to 2" heavy duty lift. I was thrilled to see it up around 3" on completion. Even though I have custom steel bumpers, that add a lot of weight to my rig. This lift was the final touch my 2012 Wrangler needed. The ride, and the looks are great.

        Great kit!

        Directions would've been a lot nicer but an internet search provided a decent set. This lift ended up adding 3 or more inches to my ride height. So far I am very pleased.

        OME does it for me

        Got this lift for a 2016 Wrangler, it would have been a little easier to do with basic instructions. Shipped fast, boxes were in drug down the road shape, but everything in good shape inside. The ride is a lot better, bought the heavy load for towing our RPod trailer, should remove the swaying of factory suspension. Wife's not too happy, she has to get a running start to get in :). Overall for the price its a good buy.

        2 inch ome lift

        This is an awesome lift. Overall the ride quality seems to have improved from the stock ride. I will say this lift with stock bumpers etc ends up higher than 2 inches. I did not need brake relocation kits. I do highly recommend adjustable track bars and sttering stsbilizer though. It makes life much easier on the install and helps with the overal stability.

        I got this lift. all the parts a high quality but it came with NO INSTRUCTIONS AT ALL. Luckily i found a write up that was helpful. i was luck the hobby shop where i work on my car had spring compressors otherwise they would have NEVER fit. SERIOUSLY consider brake line extensions this is bigger then 2 inches and my lines are almost always uncomfortably tight. If i did it again get a different lift but get these shocks.

        Excellent but not specific!

        This is an amazing lift, the ride quality is excellent and better than stock. I cannot comment on install since a shop did it for me. However, if you’re buying this for. 2 door I recommend two things, go 37’s and be ready for a high lift. This lift is normally sold as “heavy load” and if you’re rig isn’t carrrying roof rack and winch it will sit higher than 4 inches.

      I keep seeing reference to this giving a 3 inch lift. The 2" lift is exactly where I want to be for my 2017 JKU. I'm hoping to get as large of wheels then without re-gearing - ideally something close to a 34". Does this truly hit a 2" lift?

      • The Old Man Emu 2 in. Heavy Load Lift Kit w/ Shocks will provide 2-2.5 inches of lift depending on aftermarket mods.

      Will this kit affect my electronic suspension control or my front end alignment?

      • The Old Man Emu 2 in. Heavy Load Lift Kit w/ Shocks (07-17 Wrangler JK 2-Door) would require you to upgrade your electronic swaybar disconnects to accommodate for the extra suspension height. As well, after lifting your vehicle, you should have it professionally aligned.

      I have a Jeep JK with steel bumper on the front, stock bumper on back with stock wheel mounted. I plan to install a winch and steel bumper on the back in the future but it may be awhile. Will this kit be to harsh of a ride with my current setup?

      • The Old Man Emu 2 in. Heavy Load Lift Kit w/ Shocks (07-17 Wrangler JK 4-Door) will definitely support that set up and the ride will not be harsh,
