I need to keep it as a city commuter but do some moderate mountain trails. wish me fun if not luck
If you want to keep it city get the ML/MD OME Lift Kit. I get compliments ALL THE TIME about how smooth the ride is.

Bouncy when initially installed and all over the road (I had to drive home on I-20 lol) but after the coils settle......smooth smooth smooth.

I hear that the HD/HL Kit stay bouncy.

Re: The Official Lifted WK Thread

Carlos, We need more pics, and pics with the hatch closed.

Is that the tire carrier that goes in to the trailer hitch?

Re: The Official Lifted WK Thread

So i got an 05' WK, and i was looking online at this lift kit;

"Rock Krawler 05-10 WK Grand Cherokee 4WD 3.5" Entry Level System.
The pricing on it was $296..

So my question is, is this not a lift kit that you would use to see the difference in your jeep in the pictures abovee, because im used to hearing that lift kits range from $1000-$2000 or more..soo idk if im looking in the wrong place or not..So could someone please help me out- thank you in advance!

there are several kits that yield about the same height... in all reality that RK XF lift is really about a 2" lift... the 3.5 inches includes the added height gained including the tires. Most people agree that its is a good lift, however its slightly overpriced for what you are getting. I considered this lift for a while but when you can get a 2" spacer lift from Rough Country for 150.00 I figured i'd spend the extra money on the Bilstein shocks.

Edit: the lifts for about 1-2k are once you get over the 2-2.5" lift height... such as a 4" lift.... you are dealing with a lot more replacement parts.
