    I am debating on getting an OME lift with leaf pack for the rear. I was wondering how it rode, what the ride height is set for. And can you set it at 3" and if so how does it ride? Any info on tire size ride height quality of ride etc....would be much apprechated. Thanks

    you cant adjust the OME lift, only if you have 5100s. But overall the ride is a tiny bit stiffer then stock but it corners better and handles the bumps much better. I got about 2 inches out of my 885s but I believe that it is because I have the supercharger and thats an extra 100 pounds in the engine bay.

    I'm an OME fan as I have a custom setup on my 84 CJ7 using their springs and shocks from the 85 4runner rear springs if I recall correctly. The wife had an 85 4runner with the OME suspension and it was very, very impressive on the gravel roads with 33s. Slow wheeling was easy too, but man did that thing handle like washboard was your friend, it just ate it up. Some meth heads stole it, joyrode it, and totalled it. Recovered it 6-8 months later in the spring. Didn't want another project, have the jeep already.

    I'll be adding an OME lift to the 09 Taco after these stock tires wear out. I am greatly looking forward to better ride and load carrying capacity. The stock suspension is really weak once its loaded down. Woefully weak in my opinion.
