I'm running the 275/55R20 with stock rims. I had no rubbing before the leveling kit was installed. After adding the leveling kit I had a slight rub with the front passenger side tire only when I turned all the way to the right. I have since added 1.25 wheel spacers.

I still have a slight rub but the appearance and handling is a ton better. I have the stock rims.

Re: Rocky Road Outfitters WK2 Leveling Kit

Yes, I just did the install on Saturday.

Thanks for the reply. I'm glad to hear someone had similar results. I always worry that I did something wrong.

Can't wait to get it back from the alignment shop today.

Re: Rocky Road Outfitters WK2 Leveling Kit

Thanks again for the response. That really helped settle my nerves after the install. I got the truck back from the alignment, where they also put on the Rubicon wheels and tires. When I got home the front fender was still about a half inch higher (then I remembered I still had the old wheels and tires loaded in the back). Unloaded those, then drove to/from work the next day. And now I'm about 1/4 higher in the front... So with that i'm satisfied, that will probably settle or change as I drive.

I also got a response back from Rocky Road saying that it is common for the front suspension to take a couple of days to "settle".

With all that said, I think the truck looks great now. Very happy with the outcome. Snapped a couple pictures on the way to work this morning.

Re: Rocky Road Outfitters WK2 Leveling Kit

Anyone know if there's a leveling kit for a 2wd wk2? Not trying to do any off-roading just don't like the nose pointed down.

Ask RRO to be sure, but I am sure it would be the same kit. The spacers go above the struts and that should be the same for yours. It will just be a whole lot easier for you with 2WD!

I talk to them thru email they said they weren't sure that it wasn't in the specs.. I'd assume the same just didn't want to get down to the install and them not fit because it's 2wd.. I saw a 2wd on another form with a lift/leveling kit but they never said what brand they used

Re: Rocky Road Outfitters WK2 Leveling Kit

There shouldn't be any issue with installing the RRO leveling kit on your 2WD. Bilstein lists the same 5100 series strut for the front of both 4WD and RWD, and I would recommend going that route if you wanted to level the front.

I think with this wheel/Tire combo and the limited lift, you will have a rubbing issue in extreme flexing situations. I don't go threw many ditches like that so I consider it resolved.
With your RRO Roof Rails start looking for a wind fairing. They are a little noisy at freeway speeds. Good luck and keep us posted.
on the 2013 u sold i guess was the RRO leveling kit for 2wd or is it universal

Re: Rocky Road Outfitters WK2 Leveling Kit

275 60 r 20
Wk2 leveling kit
1 bora wheel spacer up front and 1.25 back.

Front and back fenders sit at 36"
Slight rub up front on felt liner. I did not have to bend pinch weld. Only rubs slightly at full lock.

Rear small rub when hitting huge bump.

I do not off road more than farm roads and forest roads.
