Re: 275/55/20 GY Silent Armor (pics)

Ok, well that answers the question, thanks! I don't have QL so I quess normal ride height is close to what I would have, but I think the rake from front to back is greater with the coil suspension, so it seems for me that the Leveling Kit with the 275/55 as many have done is the best bet.

LOL. You are seriously doing your homework before committing, Aqua. Good for you. I wish I would've known for sure before I went forward with my setup.

Your not kidding, LOL. I probably sound paranoid, but I just don't want any problems and then my wife saying WTF did you do to the Jeep. (since she drives it on occasion and we need it for long trips.) I guess I'm just trying to get all I can out of it without to much compromise 'on-road'

I totally understand. Better safe than sorry, especially when it comes to keeping the significant others in our lives appeased.

Re: 275/55/20 GY Silent Armor (pics)

I had the duratracs on our wrangler, wifey even said, they weren't loud with the top down, and the grand is quieter...i said as they wear, they'll get louder, so we compromised. Going to have to "wheel" it now, maybe go over a curb or 2 at the mall
I'm on coil, and wanted to level, but wife said if they fit, don't level it. Well, it's going to go in one day for "some work" at my buddy's motorsports store, and come back a little "different".
First I have some other things to take care of...corsa for the charger(hopefully next week), intake for the diesel, stamped concrete patio w/ fire pit and fireplace(cuz we HAVE to have both), trees and other landscaping at the house, a "babymoon" vacation, and invisible fence for puppy, and apparently it all has to be done like 5 minutes ago. Apparently we have a money tree in the basement I don't know about. I do detailing on the side for paying for my toys like firearms and car stuff, not sure where all her "have to have it" cash comes from

You lost me in there somewhere

Curious why doesn't your wife want it 'leveled'. So it sounds like your going to put on the 275s and see how it is.

I was answering/replying to a couple different thoughts. I got the 275's. Wife initially was on board for duratracs, but I knew better because I didn't want to hear about noisy tires later. She also said if the 275's fit then don't level it, but at some point it's going to have "some work" done..i.e it will get leveled at my buddy's shop and he'll make the receipt say anything but level kit. I also have non-QL suspension.
First though have to direct funds to other things. Most of them big ticket items vacation, patio, and tonight she added we should get a shed that matches the house. Oh well, women.

looks, they fit just fine. I had a couple pics earlier in the thread...my IT dept is trying to recover stuff I had saved to my computer. Thanks to wonderful "updates", my computer is now pretty blank. But it's "somewhere" on our server. Awesome

Yep, saw the pics thanks! They look good, I don't mind the rake, so my only concern was the front fender being to close to the tire, not ony functional, but just looking like it's almost resting against the tire, but it doesn't look that way on your jeep.

nope, enough room you can still get your hand in there and wash the trim. I like there's more rubber sticking out to help prevent curb rash on the rims...cost me 120 to redo a rim on our '13 cuz it caught the curb
