Re: lifting 2001 grand cherokee laredo

I have a 2000 GC Laredo with a KOR 2-3/4" lift with 265/75R16 Cooper STT. On road, no issues, Off road in severe articulation, some rubbing but at slow speed it has never been a problem. I previously ran 255/70R16 Cooper ST before the lift but I had the Up Country OEM suspension package (+1" lift over stock). No rubbing concerns with that combination.

I doubt very much you could use any Wrangler parts on the WJ. But I am not a back yard mechanic.

I had mine installed over 10 years ago. Handles great on & off the road, from creeping along through the forest in 4-Lo to 4-Hi and interstate highway speeds in the next hour, we have driven it from Montana to Maine and it has never let us down!

What part of this country are you located in?
