Roll limit is pretty far, but Iactually did almost roll it last month a beefy tree limb kept me upright.

Back to the original subject... I'mhere at my shop now, and we're about to test max cv angle with lift. Going for 4" today and if successful...will be sending specs to icon and king to get some custom gear made.

New post coming soon. #wk2project

great thread!! I have a '14 Altitude, would the front and rear 5100 pairs alone be a good starting point for the stock 20's and 275/55/20 TG2s? I was considering just the RRO but the more i read, like this thread, looks like both are best? Along with 1.25" spacers i assume too?

Would I also need new springs at all or stocks just fine?

5100s are a great choice for that setup! Id pull that trigger.

As far as the spacers go, thats personal preference with the stock wheels. those tires will work stock height, or lifted on stock wheels. The spacers just give a nicer stance like an aftermarket mid offset wheel

Nice! So both 5100s and the RRO lift or just 5100s? I don't plan on wheeling as much as you do....yet

good to know about the spacers. I may see how it looks first and then decide from there if i want them or not.

id suggest just grabbing the 5100s by themselves. run the fronts at the 1.5" setting and call it a day. great look, great ride.

Perfect. Sounds like a plan!! OEM springs are fine for now I assume too? I've seen others run Eibachs and heard they may be discontinuing them...

Got my 5100's in finally can't wait to get them on. Not sure if it's CA or what, but labor rates are through the roof. $450 to install just the fronts, $200 for the back!

Re: Bilstein 5100 + RRO 2.5" lift completed.

Does that include installing the RRO lift and a 4 wheel alignment? If so, that's not a horrible price, IMO

Nope. Just straight 5100s with alignment. I'm getting all new duratracs on Monday so I was imagining they would do an alignment there too. Wanted to get the 5100s on first.

Re: Bilstein 5100 + RRO 2.5" lift completed.

Literally just got my jeep back from the shop after having this setup put on. There is still a pretty significant rake to the front end. Is this to be expected, and if so for how long?
