Well hello everyone, just wanted to say hi since I am new here. first up a little background on how I got here...

long story short I have owned jeeps all my life (2 xj's, 1 wj, 1 wk, and 1 kl (its the wifes, I know it doesnt count)). My grand cherokee (wj) was recently stolen out of my driveway by some asshats who cant work a real job to support themselves. So insurance cuts me a measly check that wont even replace what got taken so I figure lets upgrade. start looking at wk's and then I come across a 2008 xk for sale at what seems like way to good of a price. Go to check it out, decide to risk it and BAM! I now own a commander...

So I have a 2008 Limited with the hemi, got it for $6100. I am sure there is something wrong with it that I will find in the months to come but for now its running strong. I have already scoured this website pretty much front to back. but I guess for those of you that are still around I will be asking your help as I build my new baby. lift and exhaust are first on the list and who knows where it will go from there. maybe I will eventually have this thing sitting on 36s like my cherokee is...

Welcome aboard! I just lifted my 2007 limited XK (I've owned for about 1 month). I went with the OME 2" lift w/ new upper control arms (and ball joints). I also added 3/8" spacers to the front for the extra weight of the HEMI, and it is nicely leveled. Can't wait to see what you do with yours!

@heffercow ;

Welcome to the forum.

You need to reach 5 posts; at that point your normal user permissions will kick in and the entire forum / sub-forums will become available to you.

As far as PM's go, you cam PM a moderator immediately (no minimum post count required) if you have any issues.

I already ordered the OME HD, was trying to figure out if that leveled it or not. some posts say yes others say no... you got any pictures of yours with the spacers? also what brand are they?

I ordered everything thru JBA offroad. I bought the OME kit with HD springs, JBA upper control arms, and the (JBA) 3/8" spacers. Excellent customer service and products, would highly recommend.
