      Hi Tom, I am trying to help a guy out on JF who wants an OME lift on a KK plus what it takes to make it 3” instead of 2.5”. I dove in but now I’m feeling like I’m a bit nervous I’m going to tell him the wrong thing. Can you take a look for me? Thanks, Lauren

      Hey Tom I have a question for you as you seem to be the go to guy around here. I have a early 03 3.7 4x4 5 speed. Built in 10/02. I want to replace my headlights. Rock auto has listings for them but there was a change in them in 10/02 according to their listings. Do you know what the difference is? I am having them shipped to Canada so wouldn’t be able to return them if they’re wrong.

      Tom would you be willing to share your plans for the bumpers you previously made?

      i have a 2005 jeep liberty , came with Old man emo coils and 3/4 spacers . replaces with a 2" spacer . put back together and now have a grinding ish sound on acceleration and turning . i did replace both sides with stock over the counter cv axles from Lordco at the same time .
      have read guys using bigger spacers with no problems . stumped as to what's causing this , was not there before the lift .

      I am sure you have answered this many times but I am installing Old Man Emu 927/948 springs and am wondering if I should match them with Emu Nitrogen shocks or Sport shocks. Jeep is an 03 and is my daily driver and lift is for bigger tires.

      Hi Tom. I currently drive a 06’ 3.7l. I just found a 02’ 2.4l at the junkyard with 4.10 gearing in the rear. My questions are the junkyard rear end is drums. My 06’ is discs. Is buying the junkyard 4.10’s worth it to put in my 06’ or should I just wait and buy a locker and gears down the road for the rear? Or is it worth buying it because I’ll need the axles and any other parts to convert to 4.10 gearing?

      I'm mainly just trying to get my Jeep Liberty KK (2011) to sound better on the front end - suspension sounds awful despite some work done to the front struts (i don't trust the guys who did the work anyway) maybe involves UACs?

      Where can I measure from in order to find the vehicle / suspension height?

      Thanks a lot.

      Hi Tom, in the same situation as Steve - looking through previous posts regarding clunking and rough rides on the liberty, unfortunately I don't see JBA selling any econ lifts and RRO seems to be the only place offering a kit. Hoping you'd be able to assist me in setting up my own kit based on ideal prices/parts/performance. Definitely interested in OME's as I see you talk about them a lot but a lot to take in.

      High Tom, wanted to pick your brain on Liberty kk. What lift do you recommend and can you refer me to where I can order one ASAP. I was told you could run a 255-75-16 on them with a three inch? Seen skyjacker said 33”11.5 tire could be ran with there lift. Ran them for years but looking on here old threads seem not good? Seen jba has upper control arms. Thanks in advance for your knowledge and guidance

      Is there any thing I can use to keep the wiring from coming uncovered by the weather stripping?

      And than to get the wiring in to the vehicle(so i can connect the switch),i go through the firewall?

      Is there anywhere to purchase a metal winch bumper for the 05 kj I’m looking everywhere and can not find one? Does some one custom make them?

      what kind of lift are you running if you don't mind me asking? I have a 3 inch RC lift on mine running 265/70r16 and rub s when I offroad. I don't want to stiffen the suspension unless absolutely necessary. I dont mind trimming plastic or metal either since I use it primarily offroad as a trail vehicle/overlanding. any advice would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

      Hello, I have an 05 KJ looking to do an OME lift, some spacers, ARB rear locker, full skid row armor underneath, and 235/75r16 tires. Will I need a regear with this added weight? Thanks.
