FJ Cruiser - 2 Inch Lift

Post by Cloggy » Tue Jul 10, 2018 9:00 pm

Hi , i am currently looking at putting in a 2 inch lift in my FJ. I have decided on Dobinsons spring coils and are now considering Pro-Fender or OME. I have no add-ons to the car and the off roading is mostly experienced level desert driving and the trips in general are on an average about 500 - 700 Km over a weekend, including hard top.

Any insights as to which ones are better, Pro-fender (2.0 nitro 8 adjustable step or Mono Tube 2.0 hgh pressure)) I see hardly any reviews although they are sold widely in the middle east and for OME the reviews are quite diverse. I had looked at ironman, but they do not have the Foam Pro ones here, they also sell Auto-Pro (Chinese Made), but can not find anything at all about this brand. Obviously they also offered the FOX ones, but the prices are more than double which I think is overkill.

One other option that was suggested was a DBS spacer suspension levelling kit, 3 inch front, 2 inch rear, anyone any experience with this kit or knows how these handle in desert driving with cresting and the occasional jumps :) or 80 degree short drops.

Thanks in advance for any advice from your fellow 4X4 rover in Riyadh

In general, OME are considered pretty good by most people. I have Icon Stage 4 with 2.5” of lift, but they may have gone downhill as a company.

In general, in the Middle East, you are best off buying what there are reviews for and you can get serviced. For suspensions, that means Kings, Fox, Icons, OME, and Radflo. Anyone else is suspect. Between these companies, you need 2.5” tubes and probably go up to 2-2.5” of lift.
In the sand, there is truth.
