2.5” lift with Bilstein 5100 shocks and H&R +1.5” lift springs

Turned out great and the ride is nice. Went from 18.5 inches to 21.
Looks great! Glad it rides nice too. It’s like getting a brand new Jeep.

With a lift like that, some recovery points, and good AT tires you can go pretty much anywhere a wrangler can now. Welcome to the addiction. :p

Edit: but you’ll have a much more comfortable ride!

This was my daughters first car and I bought her something newer. I was going to sell it and get an older wrangler but I didn’t care for how noisy or lack of cargo space. Plus they are overpriced. I’m glad I kept the Liberty.

That’s the height I would like to achieve with my OME lift that’s on back order.

Which part of your ome lift is on back order? I ordered several this week and didn't have any problems sourcing parts. If it's a particular shock pn I probably have an alternative number for the same shock, especially if it's a rear shock

I ordered OME 926 Front and 948 Rear as well as OME Nitrocharger shocks all the way around.
Ordered through Quadratec. Spoke with them last week and they indicated that they should be able to ship them out around October 7th.
Ordered them Aug.25th.
What are the Bilstein shock numbers?
Are they the 5100’s?
Thanks!

What you will get are stock length shocks in the rear

Did you install it yourself, or did you have it installed, if so what was the cost? I did a Rusty's lift kit on my truck and cost me about 250 bucks for the kit and then it took me a few hours to install, I installed it with the help of my dad right here in my own driveway. Only thing I don't like is that the rides kind of stiff with the front. The rear is just a puck so it's smooth. I was thinking to replace the front Springs with the ones that you have, so I wanted to know if they just get put on the strut because my front Springs like I said are a little stiff. Looks good good luck with it.

I had a guy who does automotive work in his spare time do the job. I’ve seen a lot of his work so I knew he would do a good job. He does paint and body also and needed new paint on the roof. He did the lift and paint for $750. I was going to tackle the lift myself but that price was to good to pass up.

I also had the RRO upper control arms installed at the same time. It was a tough choice between JBA and these but I needed them quick and could get the RRO a couple days sooner. The guy doing the install said needed new upper ball joints and he already started the work so I got these quick.

Question: with this lift can I put 245/75R16 tires with no problems?
