Jeep CJ OME Lift Kit

This excellent lift system provides a 3" lift using the finest riding lift springs on the planet... Old Man Emu. Our system provides all the pieces you need for a safe and proper 3" lift including...

OME springs
Spring bushings
Long travel shocks
Transfer case drop
Wrangler spring conversion kit
Ubolt skidplates
Rear shackle hanger
Brake line extensions
Heavy duty shackles


The Old Man Emu suspension components are perfect for those who want ride quality over just 'show' quality. They are not always the tallest lift on the planet, but are by far the highest quality. The typical lift achieved from a set of Old Man Emu springs for the CJ Wrangler is about 3-3.5".

Now Old Man Emu doesn't directly manufacture components for the CJ. However, our OME kits come with the necessary conversion system including the spring plates, so you can run the world's best lifted springs on your CJ Jeep. This is the best of all worlds since Wrangler springs ride so much better than any CJ spring on the planet.

With Old Man Emu, your ride quality improves immensely over stock and the plush ride will turn you off from lessor springs sold by more well-known companies with huge advertising budgets or cheap AAL (Add A Leaf) lifts from the moment you try them.

OME suspensions are widely regarded as the best engineered suspension on the market for any vehicle. Not necessarily the best choice for those looking to go extreme with super size tires and huge lifts. The OME system is a sensible lift height designed for maximum highway comfort and excellent offroadability.

Another great benefit of the OME suspensions is that the spring rate is tailored to your vehicle. One spring does not fit all, and OME understands this. This is why there is a choice of springs for folks running an 8cyl conversion up front, heavy winch bar, hard top, soft top, oversized spare tire, etc.

Customize your suspension and get it right the first time!

We also use shocks specific to the Jeep's weight. Fortunately for CJ owners, your Jeep weighs the same as a standard Wrangler. Its not a shock designed for a full size pickup truck that cross-references to your vehicle as well. It is built for the specific weight and suspension geometry of your vehicle for a comfortable ride on and offroad.
