Re: quick question

This is one thing that I have not seen done on a WK. I bet their are a few shops in your area that could build you a one off system. That, combined with some coilovers, would be a pretty awesome set up. I'm not sure what you would do about the fenders, though. If you did 2" longer control arms, you could probably be able to get away with stock fenders but it might look a little goofy with them sticking out a bit. How much travel are you trying to get? As a reference, a Ford Raptor is about 3.5 inches wider per side and that achieves 11.2" of travel in the front, I believe. If you're having control arms custom made, you might want to consider switch over a a uniball upper control arm vs. a ball joint, also.
