    Installed DPG ultimate kit along with new tires and wheels.

    The pics attached are what It looked like before I started, it had a 4 inch lift with 35's. The suspension wobbled badly as did the steering wheel. Any bump would cause the steering to pull hard to the right. The suspension swap took a while as I was learning as I went. Dirk from DPG was a great resource for advice and information. I would email him with photos and questions and within a few hours he would respond. If anyone is new to this, I would highly recommend purchasing from him as he provides on-going support for your project well after your purchase.

    Did you regear as well, or are you on stock gears. I have a 2005 LJ, but I am still on 30x9.5 with that same OME lift as you, but due to a fear of regearing I have delayed a bigger wheel purchase.
