Whilst the development of an Old Man Emu
suspension system for the Jeep Wrangler JK
provided our engineering team with some
unique challenges, the end result has produced a
number of fantastic improvements.
Our engineers quickly discovered that while the
original suspension was well balanced with positive
handling characteristics, a noticeable deterioration
in suspension performance was noticeable when the
vehicle was loaded. Furthermore, some conditions
both on and off road resulted in the unnecessary
activation of the ESP (Electronic Stability Program)
system, which had a tendency to unsettle the vehicle.
When developing the new suspension, OME engineers
focused on creating the best possible range of spring
and shock absorber combinations to increase ride
height, maximise load carrying capabilities, and give the
vehicle a safe and positive feel in all driving situations.
Compatibility with the Wrangler’s ESP was achieved
through the use of OME’s Motec on board vehicle
data logging system, which proved invaluable during
numerous road tests by supplying our engineers with a
range of critical vehicle dynamics data.
With approximately 50mm increase in ride height,
significant improvements in handling and control, and
greatly enhanced ride quality, JK owners will certainly
enjoy the benefits associated with outfitting their
vehicle with a complete Old Man Emu suspension.
OME suspension selections for the 4 Door V6
petrol and 2.8L diesel models, as well as the 2 door
2.8L diesel model, are yet to be confirmed. These
JK variants are being actively sourced for OME
development, and further part numbers will be added
to complete the OME JK range if required.

Sorry about the muffed up format, just copied and pasted from the ARB newsletter....and I'm wayyy to lazy to fix it Wink . Info's at the bottom of the newsletter found Here

Also, the ARB front bumper is due to hit the market soon. Haven't seen any pics of it as of yet though.
Drink more Ovaltine!!!

I have installed LOTS of these OME 2" kits on JK's...perfect if you need a daily driver/occasional off-road combo vehicle. Fits a 34" tall tire very nicely. Even with the heavy-rate springs all the way around, the ride is awesome. Really should be done with the rear panhard kit/bumpstops as well.
Real Jeeps are built, not just bought.
