had to wipe the drool off my keyboard. Sick jeep man. You should get some of the aerosol truck bed liner for the skid plate to complete the blacked out theme.

Re: The Official Lifted WK Thread

Ok, so I have installed my 2" Daystar lift and put on 265/70/17 Nitto Terragrappler, however I am getting a goo amount of rubbing on the interior wheel well. I thought I would be able to cut out the plastic, but it runs out its rubbing on the metal. I dont want to start cutting or hammering it in because i dont want to lose strength. Is th only way to cure this through wheel spacers? If so, what size? WHere to get them? I have included pics for you all as well hahaha. I had to cut down the bolts on the upper ball joint and then tac welded them, I also had to tac weld the upp bolts to the new plate daystar included for the strut mounts. The threads did not hold haha. Thanks

X3 on the blacked out headlights.

You got a nice setup to GCL and way to rep the lifted 3.7

I can't belive his V6 can handle those tires.

Re: The Official Lifted WK Thread

He is someone that posted on another forum about 3 years ago. This is what he said about his setup
"it wasn't a typo, i actually got 295's. i wanted to get 285's but they where on backorder, and i just couldn't wait. had to trim a little of the plastic in the front wheel well, and fold over the seam. i haven't had any rubbing issues, but i am running a V6 and those wheels and tires are HEAVY! i probably won't be able to do too much off road because they are so big on only a 3" lift, but i didn't plan on getting crazy since it is only the V6. about the backspacing, i can't remember for sure, but i think the wheels are 17x8 with 4.25 bs, and i have no problem turning either"

Huge tires for the v6 thats for sure!

Re: The Official Lifted WK Thread

Here's a picture of my 05 Laredo. It's got a 2" Daystar lift, 255/70R17 Firestone Destination A/Ts, Yakima roof rack, and I tinted the reverse portion of the tail lights a little bit. I got bored one day and I thought it would look cool....It came out pretty good I guess...I'm satisfied.
