Pic Request - DuraTrac 275/65-18 + RRO Leveling Kit

Hi All, been a lurker for a while and have just started to get the mod bug .

I have an RRO leveling kit on order and am hoping to get some DuraTrac's to go along with the kit. Does anyone have any pictures running the RRO Kit and 275/65-18 DuraTracs? It seems like all of the pictures i've found through search are running the QL suspension. I'm currently running the stock 18" wheels on my 14' JGC Laredo and am planning on keeping them for awhile.

Thanks!!

Re: Pic Request - DuraTrac 275/65-18 + RRO Leveling Kit

I suppose it doesn't have to be the 275/65-18, any DuraTrac pics with the leveling kit would be appreciate. I'm actually leanining more towards the 265/65-18's now. Seems like these might fit a little better with out stuffing too much rubber in there. I'm a bit worried that the 275's might rub a bit when the suspension is compressed.

Any inputs?

I would like to see this too, if anyone has one with 265/65/18 and coil suspension. I do think the 275s would be too tight, concerning the OD is larger than the 275/55/20 which is pretty tight.

Re: Pic Request - DuraTrac 275/65-18 + RRO Leveling Kit

Well, after doing as much research as I could regarding the DuraTracs, I decided to have the 265/65r18's installed on my stock 18" wheels. They look and fit AMAZING!

I do not have my RRO Leveling kit installed yet, but with the stock coil suspension, there is no rubbing, even at full lock. I'm not sure if the 275/65's would have fit, even with the leveling kit, I'm very happy I decided to go with the 265/65's. Will post some pictures later tonight.

Congrats, look forward to seeing the pics. I think you made the right move. You get some more height, rubber, speedo isn't off as much and they probably give you some space for flex.

Sorry for the delay in getting these pictures posted, but here's a bit of an update.

Decided to go with the 265/65r18's and then installed the RRO leveling kit over this past weekend. Pictures below with before and after the leveling kit.

Currently I have the Duratrac's, RRO Leveling kit, and 20% tint on the front windows to match the rear.

Looks really good, much better IMO with the level. Do you install the level yourself or did a shop do it?

Thanks, I agree, the level really pulled it together. I think it has a bit to settle yet, so I'm thinking it may drop a little bit over the next week or so.

I did the install myself with the help of a mechanic buddy who has all the tools. It was a complete pain in the a**!! Ended up taking the lower control arms off to fit the strut over the axle / cv boot and on the drivers side actually had to take the axle off. It's a pretty intensive process. Looking back if I were to do it again I'd probably just pop for a shop to do it.
