I'm just reporting my results after about 500 good miles on it. Every setup will be different depending on many factors such as mileage, age, environment, use/abuse, etc. Fwiw, my 07' Hemi has almost 90K miles but is in excellent condition.

Re: The "Mini" Lift

Just wondering if anyone has tried this and tested bigger tire sizes I have 5 brand new 255/75/17 dynapro ATMs sittin around but my extended warany says zero modifications after I bought the tires I have an extra set of wk rims and tpms so I would like to run them and swap the factory wheels on for service I know people run this size with minor rubbing on stock height but I live in a town that the roads are trash so I figure I will be rubbing a lot so any insight in this?

ive not fitted anything yet- however, after comparing this "mini" lift with another one on another board, i realized my front end will be right around 20.5 with the build on the other board. my front end right now sits at 20.5 and i have a true 32" tire on 18" JK sahara rims, and they do not rub. so in theory and just by seeing that i can fit a 32" tire with my front end being around 20.5- i dont see why i wouldnt or anyone for that reason couldnt fit a 255/75... WITH the proper spacers

Re: The "Mini" Lift

Among the many things I have thought about over here in the Middle East, I am really thinking the "tire package" for this would consist of a 17x9 inch wheel with proper backspacing to avoid the pinch welds, and tire size of 265/65/17. When I get back home I am going to research those options. I also have thought about doing the RK lift of the front longer lower forks, running the Monroe Load Levers for the F150 truck in the rear, and getting some of the offset upper control arms out now to compensate for the lift. In the end I would end up with probably 2.5" of lift, but nowhere near the functionality of a true OME lift at the same height. So I dunno, just thinking out loud.
