Re: Jeep grand cherokee rubicon

So as I understand it the V-8 and Ecodiesel that have the larger front brakes will not work with the 17" wheel...

So my question is does Jeep make an 18" Rubicon wheel?

Thanks, it's an amazing vehicle, just not the best for long trips. That's why I bought the Grand. Here's some more shots.

Re: Jeep grand cherokee rubicon

Put an off road evo setup on that thing and long trips become fun. Will make the grand Cherokee feel like a stock wrangler

That's news to me. What suspension parts does Off Road Evolution make for the WK2?

He was talking about the JK I'm sure. However, I have driven the EVO Double "blow" down. Not worth the money at all IMHO. There are better JK suspension kits out there for a daily driver and longer trips if that's your thing. As a off road rig only, it's fine, other than the squeak realy bad. I have video from Moab on thatn, not to mention what has come through our shop with those kits.

Having owned and built 4 JK's for myself, I agree having a WK for longer trips. I wouldn;t hesitate to take an 3.5" AEV lifted JK across country. I have four times. Now getting in the WK is much nicer for that.

Oh, I see. Completely misinterpreted that. My bad.
