    In order to help those pondering a lift, it would seem beneficial to have a thread showing what the numbers (height and such) look like in real life.

    Please post a few pics, specs (what type/coil/shocks/part numbers/extras like isos, spacers, etc/tires)

    So I'll head it off.

    KJ: 05 LTD 3.7 4x4 in Light Khaki
    Lift: Front: OME 926 with Bilstein part #F4-BE5-6458-H7
    Rear: OME 948 with Bilstein part # F4-BE5-A702--H0
    Hub to fender measurement: 21.5"
    No extras

    Tires: 245/70/17 Nitto Terra Grapplers No rubbing

    I think this thread is a great idea! If I ever manage to sell my car I would really like to get some OME action going on the jeep but honestly it all baffles me :shrug: Keep on keepin' on, I'll be watching and learning!

    245/65/17 on your KJ, right? :D

    Looks awesome, but only 38k? I'm almost at 90k on my 05. :D

    Yes HJ on tires and current mileage. It is low miles as I have sedan that I drive way more. If it stops raining, maybe it will be time to put the bike back on the road again too.!
    With 17 inch wheels, the next series of tires will be 245-70-17, unless I can find 5 new rims, which is unlikely here. I keep looking though for deals on 16's for Rene or others.

    HJ, I like that the Meguiars products are peaking out from behind the driver's side front wheel :D

    I like all of these pics! It really helps as I'm trying to decide how many inches and what tire size I'd like to run with.

    Haven't seen any lift threads in a while.... What's wrong, now that it's warm up north nobody's on the internet anymore?

    What is your hub to fender measurement? I am thinking about the same set up for our 07.

    There ^ it is a hair under 21.75".

    I've just done my clevis and second extra iso and am now at 22.5 in front and 22.75 in the rear from 21.5 in the front and 22 in the rear.

    The extra isos from rockauto gave me 3/4" and the ~5/8 clevis gave me an inch in front.

    If you are going to do this just keep in mind that initially with the new OME springs I was at 22.5 with no clevis and boiler's plates in front. I also started with no extra isos in the rear either.

    It looks like after 16 months the springs have lost an inch of lift. Maybe a little less. The rear springs seem to have lost at least an inch. I really think the rear 948 springs could be stiffer and beefier. I may switch to a stiffer shock, but that will be in a while. I'm going to keep my hands off it for a while.

    my new specs:
    OME 927 front springs
    OME 948 Rear springs
    2 extra rear Iso (3 total on each side) (one pair of rockauto isos)
    Boiler 3/8" top spacer plates in front
    5/8" clevis
    RSX17004 Ranchos for the rear
    RSX17505 for the front
    Jeepin by Al 4.5 A-arms
    Terraflex front bumpstops
    Hockey puck rear bumpstops

    Hopefully that link will be for my album I just loaded up. So far just the front springs/shocks/shims are in. Just waiting on my rear springs, front bump stops, and isos so more pictures will come next week when those are in.

    99,5000 miles (about 30k on the current lift) and still going strong. Full Synthetic Oil for past 63k... The mechanic at the Jeep dealership was shocked when he changed my valve cover seals and said that's the only way the 3.7 woud run that long. LOL
