Re: RR 2.5" Lift and 285/70R17 Duratracs

Did you end up getting the Upper a-arms along with the lift?

Looks great! This link will help you solve your issue with rubbing. A $20 grinder from home depot and about 20 minutes should have it taken care of.

Re: RR 2.5" Lift and 285/70R17 Duratracs

Thanks for the link Bit. Ended up buying a dremel and going for it. Mine doesn't look near as pretty though.


I did get the upper control arms as well.

I notices that my front tires stick out about a half inch to an inch wider then my back tires. Both have the same spacers, not sure if this is something I should fix or leave as is.

Ya, mine didn't look as good either Could just be the body lines that make it appear that way. Did you measure from front/passenger to front/driver and the same for the rear?

Re: RR 2.5" Lift and 285/70R17 Duratracs

I didn't measure measure anything really haha. I've been doing a lot of trial and error but thus far everything has been working out.

I'm really trying to get a nice touring rig setup so my next things are going to be a solution for a full spare and a roof rack.


Been trying to get a pic next to a standard WK2 for a while but have yet to find an opportunity. I will try and get that pic up as soon as I can.

Thanks guys!

Do you think the 2" spacers would have elimiated this issue?

I don't think 2" spacers would negate the need to cut the pinch welds
