Re: any lift kits yet

I haven't heard anything yet...wouldn't be too suprised to see a module to keep the air suspension raised sooner or later though...they make them to keep trucks lowered like on the Range Rover so I can't see why it wouldn't work in reverse. It might be awhile for a true suspension lift though, since a lot of trucks will have airsprings I doubt there will be that many people looking for one...which is a shame because with just a little lift and some at tires they look sweet.

Re: any lift kits yet

You near Utah? Rocky Road is looking to give someone with a WK2 a free lift. Scroll to the bottom of the page.

Re: any lift kits yet

Glenn at Rocky Road Outfitters just sent me this:

http://www.rocky-road.com/wk2-lift-kit.html


It is not yet linked to thier current Grand Cherokee page but will be soon. If you order by 31 March they will take 10% off. You just have to e-mail them and ask for it.


I will be ordering mine as soon as Uncle Sam sends me my money

Re: any lift kits yet

Just get QL and you have a choice! To lift or not to lift.

True, but you can't get much bigger tires because the lift always drops back to normal...

It's all in what you want.

I want my Jeep lifted, permanently

Not sure yet. I put the lift on my ZJ myself, just had to get an alignment and tires mounted, so I know I am capable of doing it as it is entirely bolt-on; no welding or cutting.

But, my ZJ was used and no longer under the factory warranty. I know at Adams Jeep you can order a new JK and have them install the lfit before you even pick it up and it won't void the warranty. If they offer the same warranty for a previosuly purchased vehicle still under factory warranty than I may just have them do it. It would be worth the 4hrs of labor for that piece of mind.

We will see.

Re: any lift kits yet

Got mine Thursday, just need tires. Worried/unsure about the size so I'm installing the lift before buying the tires.

Ya, it's about the same as the lift for the Liberty's.

Awesome, can't wait to hear about your impressions of the lift kit.
