Re: Bilstein 5100 + RRO 2.5" lift completed.

Next time I have it up, I'll make a measure. It drops plenty when lifted, and while I'm playin offroad (which I do often). In all honesty , had I planned to get "flex"...I'd be in a solid axle jk with Kings and sway bar disconnects.
Have you ever pushed your rig to its lateral roll limit? I think you would be surprised with what this thing can do without all its tires on or near the ground.

I haven't lifted it enough. My tires get pushed up against the fenders with the bigger tires. I found out today. If my wheels are straight I might get another inch up into the fender.

Re: Bilstein 5100 + RRO 2.5" lift completed.

Is this all the flex you got? Here's mine, before I bumped up the bilsteins from 1.25" to 1.75" and added RRO trim packers and added TJ spacers with longer OMEs to back. I should be getting better flex now. I think you said you can stuff those tires, lets see it.

Re: Bilstein 5100 + RRO 2.5" lift completed.

im really not sure what point it is you are trying to make, and comparing apples and oranges. if you are talking about overall droop, weve already adressed it. if you are asking about how far my front tire is or isnt tucking on the pic of mine you posted, all of my weight is on the passenger front of that shot and is not comparable to the offset dip you are driving through.

pic attached is the turn/dip we were negotiating in respect to the pic you posted (another GC obviously)

I'm just messin with you man. Your jeep is dope, but I wouldn't run the RRO spacers. You said "I stuff the hell outta my tire" and that I got to see cause I'd be surprised if you could with spacers. Do you have any pics of that?

Re: Bilstein 5100 + RRO 2.5" lift completed.

If I did i woulda posted em already. I know, because I'm intimately familair with my vehicle when offroadin and know when I touch or rub. I'll be out again in the next week or two and I'll see what I can lean on to show you.
Still trying to figure your anti rro stance. Short of the Aussie guys on here I haven't seen anyone wheel as much as I do, or as hard and I've had zero issue.

Re: Bilstein 5100 + RRO 2.5" lift completed.

Anyone running the RRO kit with 5100s up front and stock rear nivomats? Would really like to keep the rear load leveling but of course the matching front/rear shocks would give a better ride.

Looking to run the RRO kit with 1.25" wheel spacers and would really like to get a 275/60/20 in there, but have only seen it done with low offset wheels. I want to keep the stock anniversary wheels on the new wk2. Liking the bronze look.

Re: Bilstein 5100 + RRO 2.5" lift completed.

Here is a video I found on your tires. How do you like them? look like an aggressive all terrain. What size are yours? and its your WK2 an altitude?

Hi currently running rro with uca plus 1.25 inch wheel spacer on standard 5 spoke 20 inch rims and 275/55/20 yokohama's. No rubbing at all and fills the guards better than having 265/50/20 on my gc 2014 limited
