    This past weekend I installed my lift. I've been driving it for three days now and I can't believe the difference. It rides so smooth compared to before. I can't see where anyone would describe the OME HD's and Racho's as harsh, or stiff. I also can't see where OME says running HD's on a KJ without a heavy duty bumper will cause problems due to excessive lift.

    My KJ now sits a touch higher than the neighbor's stock H3.

    I'm very happy with my decision.

    I'm not promising great pics because it's late and we live in an apartment complex, but they're better than nothing.

    Front suspension after lift.

    I'll try to take better pics tomorrow after work. These really don't do much justice.

    Yes. 927's.

    Besides the lift, everything else is bone stock. Well, outside the General Grabber AT2's, but those don't count. They're stock size.

    Yes indeed.

    This is the way the Liberty should have rolled off the line.

    I got bored tonight so I took some measurements to compare our '06 Sport(stock) to my '03 Limited. The front is 2 1/4" higher than the '06 and the rear is 3" higher. Both of these measurements were taken from the bottom center of the stock rim, to the fender flare.

    The one thing about mildly lifted Libertys is that they look stock... :(

    Ah well, looks good. ;)

    They do. That is, until you park next to a stock Liberty. That's when you notice the difference.
