        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,

            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

            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.

            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.

            Lived up to the hype

            Installed it on my own in about four hours. Everything lined up well and went on fairly easy. Gained more height than 2" even though I'm running heavy front and rear bumpers, 10k winch, dual battery etc. Ride is comparable to stock, perhaps slightly better.

            Nice quality lift.

            Had this lift installed on my 2014 Rubicon last week. Added 285/75-R17 tires at the same time. Install took the shop about two hours. Lift appears to be high quality components and the stall was straight forward. I have after market steel front and rear bumpers with a tire carrier and a 10,000 winch installed and I still saw almost 4" of lift after the install. It was a little higher than I wanted (wanted between 2"-3") but hope in will settle a little bit after some more use. I live in Southern Utah so I have plenty of opportunity to hit the trails. Happy with my purchase and Extreme Terrain had the product at my door in just a few of days. Would of gave it five stars but the higher than expected lift height took one star off.

            Great lift at reasonable price

            Installed on a 2013 4 dr. JK with heavy after market bumpers with winch. Mounted 34" T-A TKO2's no rubbing and better then original ride, I researched many other lift kits and decided on the Old Man EMU Heavy Duty. The advertisement said may need steering stabilizer mounting bracket (FK50) but it was not necessary. Even with the heavy bumpers and winch I see closer to three inches with a perfect level. No regrets on purchase.

            This was a real nice lift that didn't really require any speciality tools. Took about 6 hours to do but be aware that you'll need the exhaust spacer for this lift. My exhaust connection bolts were rusted beyond recognition and I had to use a plasma torch to cut the nuts off the flange. That took the most time of the entire process!

            Nice suspension

            Great lift. No directions, but jeeps are pretty easy to figure out even for a backyard wrench turner like me. This is a gentle lift. I got 2 inches of lift. I did not want to have to get into the suspension geometry going over a few inches. The ride on the street and handling is much better. My 33inch tires rubbed on hard left turn to the stops. I got the rough country adjustable track bars as well and this corrected the issue. All and all I am very happy with the stance and ride of the jeep. You will not be disappointed with this OME lift.
