Can't decide Leveling Kit Vs RRO Lift

I really can't decide here... it seems I should do the lift for only a couple hundred more... but I won't be off-roading much and don't want to sacrifice any ride quality.

Eventually I'd like to put some bigger wheels/tires on the car but it's brand new so I plan on keeping the stock tires/wheels until they need to be replaced..

What are folks thoughts, I'm sure others weighed the same decision. what did you decide and why?

I've had both and I prefer the lift, which is currently installed. Looks better and is not affected by cargo weight. The level looks perfect but when you load up the jeep it sags and looks awful.

I would also suggest spacers with whatever you decide, it really completes the look.

CC do you have low leveling? Are you saying when you load up the back the front is higher?

I do not have LL shocks, I installed tow pkg aftermarket. Yes the rear sags with too much weight when levelled.

OK, thanks, I guess with LL it shouldn't sag w/leveling kit.

Do you have any more pictures that you could post, like a regular side view? And those are the stock 18s, correct?

Re: Can't decide Leveling Kit Vs RRO Lift

Yeah like to see more pics as well if you can. I like the look and utility of the 2.5. CityCrawlers ride looks really good.

I like the idea of the lift since it would eliminate any rubbing worries I might have going up in tire size, but a little concerned about how it would affect handling and highway riding since I do a fair share of that.

Nothing to worry about there, the majority of driving I do as well is hwy and if anything its improved particularly with the wider base the spacers give you.

Re: Can't decide Leveling Kit Vs RRO Lift

I willl try and get some more pix this afternoon after work..

As far as ride quality I only saw a slight increase in bumpiness but probably because I was paying attention to it. I am really pleased with the look though.

Correct, stock 18's. thinking of trading my cooper atp's in for some duratracs and then getting spacers, maybe plastidipping these wheels black..
