Well are you going to add a bumper, winch, etc?

OME medium is a safe choice if you're going to add weight, otherwise the OME light would be the choice for you.

I know it seems rare...but I have the Skyjacker 3" and love it. it comes with 2 front struts with raised spring purches, 2 rear shocks, rear lift springs, and extended sway bar links with poly bushings...all for $400! i have a front bumper with winch and looks perfect!

The Pro Comp is not a spacer lift, it is coils/struts, shocks at all four corners. I had one on my last FJ and found it to ride a little nose high and a little stiff in the rear. If you are adding a aftermarket bumper and/or winch it should help settle that.

X2...I think all around the OME is a better product and will most likely be my next lift...or a toytec.

My vote is for OME. They sell quality parts ans specialize in Toyotas. They also have different kits available for the FJ depending on the amount of weight you want to add like a winch and bumper. Check out Camel4x4, they are very similar to OME and offer a range of kits as well.

I've had my OME on for almost 20k miles and I have 0 complaints. I got them used from a member and they were still awesome. I'm probably going to switch out the shocks soon though for the nitrocharger sport shocks. But, I may not get that done till next fall when I get the bring my FJ to college with me haha.

I have owned the procomp 3" lift for a year now, and I am very satisfied with it. yes it has settled some, but not enough to be worried about. Granted i dont have bumpers or a winch or skid plates or anything, i believe that for the money, it rides alright. However, in a year or so after I save up some money, I would like to upgrade to Icons or Toytec, but until then it is a nice medium-grade lift. Just my two cents FWIW

I also have the procomp 3". I added a 1.25 daystar spacer in the rear. in total 4 inches of lift all four corners measured before and after. Rides fine, a little stiff in the back but the front is great. I bought it for around $500 and the daystar spacers were 39.99.

Can't go wrong with OME (In my opinion), I'm contemplating buying a lift from them soon!
