Ok have fun, and post pictures when you're done. Can't wait to see these lifted Jeeps with 22" and 24"s rolling around.

Arguing over the RRO lift vs. the Eibach, on a vehicle that will be running street tires and never see off-road, what's the point?
So all 20" are street tires. Here's a street jeep with stock size 20". I'm sure with the lift and larger tire yo u could do that much more.

Re: Eibach Allterrain Lift Kit WK2

I wouldn't put 22's +.5" on anything besides a semi. my point was judgmental people on this board are the point of judgment on another. WK2's are glorified minivans, what we call wheeling is a fire road to the off road community.. 70+ years ago on 3" wide rock hard tires with 30hp? People did things Wk's would get stuck in no doubt. It was called the road home.

They did the same thing that takes what? 33's on a $40k modified vehicle, No . There's such a negligible difference in ability between a stock jeep and "modified" one it's funny. Mud being a minor exception. The difference is balls and body damage.
These Jeeps are pretty, and just look that much better when made unique. I saw a lowered WK2 the other day, looked awesome, and I dislike lowered suv's but it sat perfect.
I'll see if I can get a pic... this SoFla there's a guy around Pompano on 28's and they're destroying it, but he likes it. Or should I say he pimps it?

What we think we know is relative, what we like will change, what we accept and respect is our choice..

Re: Eibach Allterrain Lift Kit WK2

Most here are not doing the Rubicon or doing extreme off-roading. If a lift and beefier A/T tires makes the jeep look and perform better on most of the off-road situations they'll run into, what's the problem?

Re: Eibach Allterrain Lift Kit WK2

I apologize this was not meant to be disparaging or disrespectful, the opposite. I love the fact that people are keeping the WK2 off the beaten path even though Jeep is making it harder and harder. What I'm mocking is the all knowing stuff in a community like this is hilarious, a WK2 owner talking about right vs. wrong when it comes to lifts and tire types is like Prius owners debating which drag slick to use.
You're still slow.

We should be encouraging and open to all instead of thinking we know better when "we" are pretty new to this world apparently. My tools, welder, and workspace are open to anyone local that needs a hand. Boca, FL

A stock and a modified wk2 will differ in only 2 parts that affect "ability". Tires and a BB or not, so really, nothing else affects "ability" right? My WJ had a few body panels, most of the interior, and a gas tank left stock when I was done but guys on BB's used to tell me all the time what tires to use. It was the only non stock WJ engine swap ever and it still runs. Just had an awesome time, and so many great people helped build it. Not all of them thought it was a good idea, but their positivity made it work... Be positive even for painted calipers and 22's.

The fact that with that few differences there are so many bad ass looking and individual jeeps is awesome.. Each one gives motivation in some small way.
Next week you may read his reviews and go nuts and buy it..
Which is where my point derails, these jeeps are very capable at what they do, and some will push them into areas they do not belong, only someone with no regard for repair costs abuses a $35k+ luxury vehicle. But that's not wheeling it's youthful stupidity. Anything this jeep will get into comfortably it will get out of, it is a very capable driveline.
Wheeling is different for all. camping, picture taking, goofing off, getting dirty,and seeing things you can't see near pavement. Take a ride around the rim sometimes. Just not in a wk2
Dang I talk a lot.. Sorry I'm waiting for the mail man to bring my light bar for this weekends install..

Re: Eibach Allterrain Lift Kit WK2

I am lifting mine for the purpose of bigger tires. 275/65-18. I'll most likely never take it off road but want tires for driving in snow during winter months and want the somewhat aggressive look. Everybody is entitled to there own opinion some will like it some won't. It's your own jeep do what you want to do to it. I've done the lowered scene with my summer tuner car and will the same with my Camaro SS once I finish all the power mods. If I wanted a lowered jeep I would've gotten a srt. I am interested in seeing the people who bought this kit opinions on it.

Nah that analogy doesn't work at all IMO. Your making it too black and white. The lift and tire types will and can make a stock GC more capable off road and in winter, etc. so the talk is valid. The drag strip is all about speed and the Prius is not, so yeah I get that. Don't get me started on the Prius. I get stock behind plenty of them going 50 in the HOV lane. LOL.

Re: Eibach Allterrain Lift Kit WK2

I liked my analogy, inaccurate but a humorous illustration of stupidity and futility? I'm definitely no Einstein with words even though i use enough of 'em.

I have video somewhere of a Jeep club trip up to Ocala, 10 lifted and locked TJ's and JK's, a doorless WJ on 35" boggers, a long armed Cherokee on 39" iroks. All going 45ish in a 65 behind a Prius. We run a caravan and never push, only pass if we can reasonably, so we have some slow segments. We all have CB's and we enjoy the ride. Our friend drove up the side to video it as the Prius guy rolls down his window and furiously flips off the lead jeep, a local cop.
I think our poorly aligned, gas guzzling, noisy sin wagons displeased him.
To each his own.
If you ever need a lesson in why a Prius is actually bad for the environment, come to FL, and drive a modded Jeep or the like, some Prius owners are nut job angry. I can't imagine California though.

Re: Eibach Allterrain Lift Kit WK2

Wow going to have to retitle this thread aren't we?

I just finished the front end of this kit and am impressed. I cant compare it to the rr kit as I haven't seen it but I went spacers on my f150 and pulled them after 3 months and went with the bilstien 5100s. The main reason I chose the eibach lift.

I am going to start a thread with the pics and issues I ran into. Going to start the back in the a.m. It was BLOODY HOT TODAY! And now im drinking so no more airtools and spring compressors
for this guy today.
