Re: The Official Lifted WK Thread

Big fan of the pintlers but now IMO you have to get rid of your chrome or paint the pintlers black.

Was thinking the same thing actually. I think I might try plasti-dipping the chrome trim. I have a million little projects to do on it.

Thanks for the compliments. Still need to add a few odds and ends though.

Rims look great. I agree that the chrome needs to go.

Re: The Official Lifted WK Thread

Recently added some new upgrades to the jeep so I had to go out and test them. Here are some pics of my expedition.

Re: The Official Lifted WK Thread

Hey looking for some Jeepers opinion...

I have ordered my RockyRoad 2.25" lift, it's on its way

Now as far as tires go, I want to get the Goodyear Duratracs

I'm looking at either 245/75/17 to get the height to fill up wheel wel (they don't have 255/75/17)

Or the 265/70/17 - I'm just worried these won't be tall enough to fill up holes after lift.

Opinions?

Re: The Official Lifted WK Thread

I have the 265/70/17, but want the 285's after i've been driving it for a while......i do have the OME HD and a strut spacer up front, but the 285's would look a little beefier.

Very Nice. The 285's are a bit too wide for my taste, I'm a mild/moderate off-roader.

Is there a lot of space inbetween your 265/70/17 top of tire and wheel well?
