Keep in mind I don't have the adjustable ride height.
Any chance you could take a measurement from the ground to the front and then rear fender tops in normal ride height? I'm wondering if they're the same as mine. It might convince me to upgrade to the Overland 20's and Terra Grapplers.
Otis- no change in the ride height when the photos were taken, all at normal setting. I measured ground to fender for you: approx 34.5" front and 35.5" rear. 275/55 is a bigger diameter, so I'm sure the distance is greater than stock. Must say I'm blown away by how much these 1.25" spacers change the look of the vehicle. Tires stick out just enough to give the ride a better stance, but don't notice a difference while driving. Sometimes I think I may feel the road more, but can't be sure if it's really any different than before. You'll find plenty of horror stories about spacers if you do a search, but after looking hard at these and the company that makes them I think I'll be fine. I took the spacers to a high end wheel shop in Newport Beach that is the preferred place for all the "look at me" cars in the area (beacuse I know someone who works there), and they use the same BORA spacers from Motorsport and had nothing but good things to say about them. Even took my Jeep back after a couple days to have the wheels pulled off and the spacers re-torqued, and everything looked solid.

Jeff- plug and play for the spacers I received. They're made custom for this vehicle, and fit perfectly with my OEM wheels. Can't say enough about Lenny at Motorsport- he'll answer any and all questions about your setup and what you're looking for if you call him 775-351-1000.
Thanks to everyone else for the comments...
Just installed the pedal kit and am liking my most recent mod! Happy Holidays to everybody at the Garage!
