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.
