Re: Anyone in UT that can donate their WK2 to Rocky Road for a level kit.....

Ok, I got confused somewhere along the way through the thread.

I get that RRO has a leveling kit that only lifts the front 1.75" and they also have a 2.5" lift kit that addresses the front and back. Where I got lost was understanding if the 2.5" lift kit provides a level lift or if it takes both kits to accomplish this?

Re: Anyone in UT that can donate their WK2 to Rocky Road for a level kit.....

The lift kit is advertised at 2 1/2 but it is not a leveling kit. The front measures out at 1- 3/4 and the back measured at 1-5/8. The leveling kit is an 1-3/4 and in all appearances and and function serve to level the front 1-3/4. So did they just take the front end strut top spacer from their lift kit and make it a leveling kit? Seems so. I measured the the vehicle on a drive-on lift to make it level with about 1/2 to 3/4 full tank of gas I needed just about 1- 1/2 to 1-3/4 to make it sit level. Viola' their 1 3/4 leveling kit fits the bill. I ordered the lift kit first as the had not advertised a leveling kit at that time.

I don't think that is correct. I contacted them before I talked them into making the level and they were going to sell me just the front portion of the lift but that would raise the front 2.5". They did mention the rear wasn't lifted as much as the front to level it out some but I didn't want to raise the rear anymore because I already bought wheels and tires and just wanted to get rid of the rub up front. The lift does help level it out but it does raise the front 2.5".

Now the leveling kit raises the front and the Lift kit raises both front and rear for a level stance Right ?

Again the lift kit that I received measured out at 1 3/4 in the front and 1 5/8 for the rear, so no it won't lift it level for 2 1/2 lift. As I measured the factory rake at about a 4 degree drop which is about an 1 5/8 - 1 3/4 difference between the front and back. So the 1 3/4 leveling kit fit the bill. Again this was my experience with all my measurements and the lift kit, that I modified to acheive my desired results.

I originally had the 2.5" kit and ended up removing the rear spacer, which actually leveled the jeep out to my liking. Handling was also improved around corners and high speeds with the rear not being so high. Here's some pics haven't done any measurements but its perfect IMO

I agree it looks good with out the rear spacers, Question if you were to do it again, Would you get the Leveling kit OR get the lift kit ?

I would get just the front part of the 2.5" kit special ordered because it gives it a slight front rake which I prefer. I have the load leveling shocks in the rear also so it still looks good loaded down.
