2011 jgc ride height

Hey guys quick question. I have a 2011 jgc laredo with the 18" rims, my dad has the same year gc but the overland with the air ride suspension. I would like to adjust the height of my jeep to be like his, its only a few inches. Will upgrading to the 20" overland rims be enough to lift my grand cherokee to the overland height?

Re: 2011 jgc ride height

The outside diameter of the OEM tires is identical whether you have the 18" or 20" wheels. ~31.5" So that's not going to do anything for your ride height unless you choose to up-size your tires...and there's a practical limit of about an inch more without other modifications. If you want to lift your JGC, there are kits available to do just that.

Re: 2011 jgc ride height

Is there somewhere online that lists the ride height of the '11 overland and laredo so I know what the height difference is?

2011 jgc ride height

What definition of ride height are you looking for, lowest chassis point to ground, fender lip to ground, hub to fender? I'm missing what your looking to use as a reference point. I have seen other WKtoo's that looked lower and higher but mostly one end or the other, load leveling would account for a little. But from 2x4 to 4x4 v6 to v8 they've been pretty similar, and zero difference between models except with or w/out air bags. Overall the only jeep I've seen that looks taller was my friends summit on off-road setting and that's not a direct comparison. Logic would dictate a V8 4x4 spring might be different. It's all an easy fix, OME, eibach, rocky path, etc.
