Default Finally lifting

I got rid of my tj and can't fight the itch to go wheeling, so set up my kj to go play seems like the logical thing. What is the best lift for 31/10.5 mud ta's and an arb bumper with a winch? Don't want to rub or dive under braking with the additional weight up front? Waiting for enlightenment before I order parts.lol oh and what backspacing on the wheels too?

Which OME lift? Iíve got 927/948 with extras running 31s with no problem but you canít run 31s with just the HD springs alone.

What extras? The guys at 4wheelparts said they would fit.

No they don’t know what they’re talking about
Most of them are used to selling Wrangler parts not Liberty..
I have OME 927/948 springs (HD), Bilstein shocks front and back, 3 ring clevis lift up front and one extra iso in the rear on each side
Also have my pinch welds pounded over and it JUST clears when turning fully in reverse so there’s no possible way you’d have 31s with just the springs
The OME springs are marketed as giving 1.5” of lift due to laws in Australia but it actually gives you 2.5”
Still isn’t enough to run 31s though

Oh and to add, you got the ARB bumper? Even with adding clevis lift up front it’d still probably weigh down the front end too much, especially through time, for 31s so I’d get that tire size out of your head if you want that bumper
