Ome md vs ome hd

So after buying my commander with 109k miles my dream was to install a Superlift, but by the time I have the cash for that i assumed it would be time to trade in my commander anyway (due to very high milage) and so I wanted to learn more about OME lifts. I have read that when people install the HD lift, the ride gets much harsher, and I wanted to see what other people have to say about their experieces with the HD lift. My jeep has steel bumpers coming and so I was wondering with that extra weight, will I need the HD lift. I know this is a lot to ask but any help is appreciated. Thanks, Coophadley

With the weight of the steel bumpers you will want the HD spings. Do it right the first time lol

What about towing? Would the HD be better than the MD? I'm asking because the load leveling Monroe's I fitted on Large Marge didn't fare well after towing my new trailer. One of the sealas failed on one and the hydraulic fluid spilled. Would the ride be that much harsher with the HD or would the MD be the better choice since I tow infrequently? Cheers. Jorge

I've got the HD on mine... ride is firm not hard. I have the Hemi ...so there's a little more weight. I also tow a trailer, but even without the trailer the ride is much improved with the OME HD.

Has anyone been able to install the OME kit themselves? I'm a DIY guy, and a broke one at that.

How were the MD's compared to the stock springs? I'm looking to upgrade soon, was thinking MD's in the front and HD's in the rear...
