I was wondering if anyone has had any luck with an Old Man Emu lift on a Grand Cherokee (ZJ). I've already purchased it with the heavy duty/load parts, (I needed new shocks & springs anyway) I'm just waiting until I've got enough money saved up to buy new tires before I install it. In different catalogs and websites I have seen claims of 2" of lift. When I called ARB, they claim that the lift is more like 3/4" to 1". I am also going to install 2" coil spacers that I had previously purchased. I have also seen claims in catalogs that OME recommends the use of 31" tires- if I get a net gain of lift of 3" how tall of a tire would fit and what size tires could/should I run? I am more concerned about the width than the height since I am going to be using the stock 16x7" wheels. My original plan was for 245/75R16's but I have begun looking at some tires with a 255 and 265 tread width. How wide can I safely go? By the way, I actually have 8 of the 16x7" wheels for my Jeep- I may use a set for street driving with the smaller width and another for off road with the wider set if it is still safe to drive off road with the wider tires on the 7" wheels.
