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

havent seen this specific kinda thread, and id like to see the results.

Leveling kit guys, can you post the inches from ground to fenderlip and also center of wheel to fenderlip on your setup. Stock tires, or bigger..just specify please.

Lift kit guys, please do the same?

2012 Laredo 4x4
Im a RRO leveling kit with 275/55-20 Cooper Zeons:

Center of wheel to fenderlip = 21" Front 20.75 rear
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)

Looks good little off topic but what are you're wheel specs and any rubbing at all.. Also any views from the front and back if you don't mind

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

bottom of plastic...

I'll give it a couple of days and remeasure, but fairly sure its going to be close.

It is a '14 and was spec'd with heavy duty suspension, so maybe thats why..

here are before and after measurements..

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

14s may be higher, hadnt heard that yet. pretty curious because thats a huge jump over mine. I did settle down a bit after the first few days.

you should be 1/2" higher front and back than me...which would put you around 36" all around. Again, 12 vs 14 here so may be a diff.

Wish more people would post in here....

The '14s aren't any higher than previous WK2 year models.

The only reason they would be different is because of a heavier engine between the two (V6 vs V8) and/or different suspension, but that wouldn't affect the front if it's entirely OEM. Load level shocks are only in the rear, so I'm not sure what could account for such different numbers.

hes on the RRO 2.5"lift yes. That raises his front 2.5"and his rear 0.5. And im on the 1.75" front leveling. That being said, he should be .75 higher in front than me and .5 higher rear.

From what I understand that makes sense. The rake is there with the 2.5" lift, it wouldn't be level lke yours
