Re: spatial_k's Black 5.7 WK2 Overland 4x4

Nice. I'd like to know how much the rear drops in sport mode. I believe it does but not sure how much?

I'll have to do that too. I was just more focused in illustrating the front for clearance purposes. It's wide open in the back! I think that's what gives the illusion that it needs wider spacers than the front. I noticed that the higher the QL setting, the more exaggerated the wheels look tucked in. Now that I say that, I think maybe the geometry does change, the wheels probably do come inboard a bit. That would kinda make sense. Would need to measure to confirm that.

As for the new tires, I love the way they look but can't speak much to performance as I haven't really tested them out. I can say they are slightly louder than the stock Michelins but that stands to reason as they are fairly aggressive ATs. They're not loud by any means but they're not silent either. I am enjoying the firmer, more responsive ride for sure.

There is no clearance issue other than at wheel lock, the tire just kisses the felt lining on the inside of the front wheel wells. So far it has been very minor. I think wheel spacers will resolve the issue. 1.5's or 1.25's coming soon!

A couple more of the side lettering. Looks so much better IMO.

That looks clean! How did you do the side lettering?

Removed the old strips using fishing line in a sawing motion. That method keeps them intact and doesn't scuff up the paint. The new lettering comes in one foam template so I just measured 2 5/8" from door edge and 3/4" below bevel. The measurements are a mix of the old moulding location and what someone posted on another thread of the SRT lettering location.

Very well done Spatial! Didn't think I was a fan of the 18's, but they look outstanding with your tires and your Jeep. The rig looks awesome!
