Leveling Kit for 2015 Altitude JGC?

What are the best/worst leveling kits for a 2015 JGC Altitude? Not looking for a significant lift, just something that will level out my Jeep.

I wouldn't go with the RRO leveling kit. Many say it lifts the front too much than they end up having to raise the back. It also requires you to cut your upper mounting bolts. I recommend Bilstein 5100s and set them at 1.25" of lift for best ride quality. Your back may or may not still be slightly higher but the vehicle is designed to have a little rake anyways. You can measure your vehicle but 1.25" leveled mine perfectly. If you decide later you want to lift it more (like I did) then you can bump it up to 1.75" and add the RRO trim packers for another 3/8" lift then you could add poly TJ spacers to the back for some rear lift like I did. I could even sell you the spacers for $25 with shipping bc I bought a pack of four.

I am thinking about the adjustable Bilstien 5100's. How big of a tire did you go with, with your 1.25" increase? I am looking at using 32" tires

I am running 31.8" tires 275/55/20 bfg At KO2s. I don't know if you have 18"s or 20"s but I wouldn't go any bigger than 275/55/20 although you might be able to run 285/55/20 or 275/65/18s. Its not a good thing to go too big if you actually off road bc bigger tires can impact your fenders at full suspension compression. Another reason not to go much less than 34mm offset rims which I have. I kinda got lucky but I think it has more to do with the fact that I'm running SRT replicas and they were designed for this vehicle. They barely fit inside the fender and only when the wheels are straight but when I'm driving fast, If I ever bottom out, my wheels are usually straight.

They are great. I had them on my last two other vehicles as well. Never had a flat with them. This is my third set in a row. If you get them rest assured you are making a good choice. I kinda like the Atturo AT XTs too but I found a video on youtube saying two of the four would not balance so If I ever try the Atturos I'd get them somewhere that has a warranty so you are garenteed to get tires that balance. I've always been confident buying the BFGs and felt there is alot of risk trying a new AT. Then if you make poor choice you're stuck with it for several years. Duratracs look alright too but I think they have a thinner side wall than the BFGs. THE BFGs have alittle hum you might notice at first but I think it dicipates with tire wear. I don't even notice it at all any more and I've only had them a couple of months. I like them alot and would definetly recommend them. They look great. I also thought about the Nitto Terra Grapplers AT but I think they have a slightly less agressive tread but if you don't off road much they would probably be a good choice as well. BFG does recommend keeping their KO2s in this size at 47psi! and not less than 37psi for road use. I take them down to about 28psi when I offroad and that definetly softens things up a bit. With what I've done to the suspension the vehicle still rides great though.
