Rocky Road Outfitters WK2 Leveling Kit

Has anyone installed the RRO WK2 leveling kit? And if you have, could you please include some pictures? I just bought one and I am afraid the front end is going to be too high.

Looks good MartyA. Are those 275 Nittos? Any issues at all?

Re: Rocky Road Outfitters WK2 Leveling Kit

Just did mine a week ago to fit 20x9 ET18 wheels wrapped in 275/55R20 Terra Grapplers. I'm on my tablet so pics are a little difficult to post, but the front sits very close to even with the rear, leaving virtually no rake. Pics tomorrow when I get on my pc. IMHO, it's damn near perfect.

Was the spacing inside the rear wheel well affected at all by teh leveling kit. It looks like possibly it woulld be in the front rear slightly when the front is raised. Did you have to trim the fender liner or anything? Have you flexed it under different conditions yet?

I honestly don't think it made any difference in the rear at all. The wheels & tires fit in the rear before I put the lift on. Only rubbed in the front (driver's side to be specific) by just a hair and because I'm running such a low offset wheel. But the rub was in just the right spot to make it not driveable.

Before



After



I should be able to get some better pics in a few days once I get over the flu. I've been sick since Thursday night and have left the house once since then. Needless to say, I haven't had an opportunity to try and flex it out at all, either, but once I start feeling better, hopefully this weekend, I'll be able to get all that and some decent pics with my Grandy cleaned up some.

Re: Rocky Road Outfitters WK2 Leveling Kit

Thanks for the info. Another thing I meant to ask was is there a difference in the ride with the front leveled? Is there more wind noise and things like that. Flu is really going around, hope u beat it soon

Re: Rocky Road Outfitters WK2 Leveling Kit

I don't notice any more wind noise than normal. And to me, with the new wheels and tires, ride has actually improved. I don't even notice any tie noise at this point, but I expect that to change once I get some miles on the tires.

That's good to hear. Now that they're on with the leveling do you think you'll be O.K. with moderate off road use considering the space in the wheel well?

I'd imagine when stuffing the front wheels, I'll probably get some contact up front, but I doubt I'll ever get this rig into such a precarious position as to cause that. I have a JK for real wheeling and I put it into all kinds of positions, even to the point that the front springs come up off the spring perches at times.

Once thing I did notice on the drive in to work this morning, though, is that the front end doesn't seem to dive as much when braking with the leveling kit on.

Re: Rocky Road Outfitters WK2 Leveling Kit

I didn't have any problems with it being too high (once the struts settled).

I assume that's the before/after. What are you planning for wheels/tires?
