JKS' site says it won't work.. But I know folks have done this, I just can't find any info from google searches and other spots. If you know of any info to help, please pass it my way.

TIA

Did they explain why they do not work with them... I got them and the front conversions for the top and have no problems with them...

You have Rancho shocks Kevo, that's prolly why Wink .

I researched the same thing and found that it can be made to work. I'll try and find the link and post it. I believe you just have to enlargen (is that a word?) the bushing hole a bit for the BPE to slide thru.

The bushings are the issue.. I've read folks taking stock bushings and replacing the OMEs with them, but that kinda takes away in my opinion, I wanna get away from stock Mr. Green

Thanks Drack for the link, I figure, when I get them, there's a will, so there's gotta be a way, and if I don't find it on the net, I'll figure it out!!

Ive been wondering about this also. I would rather have BPE's and now would be a good time to get them on order. We still got about another month of winter/mud season before Im installing my lift.

Did you find a link for this yet 'd?

This is kinda dumb.. JKS has a great product and not many folks carry these, so it's JKS, or make your own.. It's a big need to have them expressed by many folks, and IMO, if you're willing to pay $$$ for the OME shocks, you're a person who should be targeted as someone who will pay for the BPEs, etc.. However, the bushing is a minor issue, JKS should sell BPEs for OME shocks, or maybe sell the new bushings for them, or give special modification instructions for OME users...
