Re: Leveling kits & Lift kit specific measurements on your ride, please.

I'm having height envy. At 6'4" this isn't a normal feelings. It looks like the 14s measure higher. They may not be higher, may be a difference in fender.?? I'm gonna remeasure and add some spacers to the rear as well.

Re: Leveling kits & Lift kit specific measurements on your ride, please.

Measured mine this morning with the front RRO leveling kit + the rear TJ .75" spacers + 255/75/17 tires (31.7").

Both measurements are just a hair over 35" up front and 36" in the back. I measured from the ground to the lip of the plastic in the fender well.

Re: Leveling kits & Lift kit specific measurements on your ride, please.

TTT again,

Now I have a 15 Altitude 4x4 and will soon be leveling. Ive already added 285/50-20s.

the difference in 265/50 & 285/50 is 0.80" so, adding these gained me 0.40" in overall height.

As measured today, I am at 34.25 front and 35.5 rear. Technically, with RRO Level I "should" go to 36front and stay at 35.5 rear.

My previous 12 hemi 4x4 laredo as I started with in this thread had 275/55-20s so those were 1.48" taller than stock meaning approx .75" taller ride.
Anyway, the 12s #s on the taller tires are...
35.4f 35.25r

All that being said, my 2015 looks to be (once leveling installed) taller than my 12 by approx .6" even though im using a shorter tire this time. the 14+s simply are a bit higher. At least Ground to Fenderlip, as I expected.

Re: Leveling kits & Lift kit specific measurements on your ride, please.

RRO 2.5/0.5 just installed on my 15, getting aligned now and will take pics and measurements later. sure is sky high right now til it settles.

Driving to the alignment shop was....sketchy.

Exhaust shop after here, and then the wheels and tires go on tomorrow.

Already did. The whacked alignment had it up a bit more.

Ground to fenderlip = 35.4" front 35.25 rear
( I just took it off jacks an hour ago, it may still be a lil up there in the front...it was dead even yesterday)
Alright, so now I have a 2015 Altitude 4x4
RRO 2.5 lift with 285/50-20 Terra Grapplers.
Before:
ground to fenderlip = 33.75 front 35.25 rear
After:
ground to fenderlip = 36.25 front 37.25 rear.

Another confusing result. We will see if it settles. Not sure why the .5 lift rear is actually 2" up. front seems right on. Looks sexy.

Will be going t0 275/55-20 tires tomorow and getting some miles on it and will remeasure.

Is there any reason you are changing from 285x50r20 to 275x55r20? Are the 285s worn out?

Thx

Re: Leveling kits & Lift kit specific measurements on your ride, please.

Front stock struts either failing, or its settled ALOT. im starting to rub on the 33s after a month of driving. remeasured and im way lower than I was after install. Glad I have the 5100s sitting here ready for install get that front back up where it belongs.
