i have ome hd and kept my daystar spacer in the rear on top of ome springs and it sits perfect. don't stack the front and you should be okay. only time will truely tell but supposedly as long as you keep the front under 23" you should be safe. my front is 22" hub to fender and 23" in the rear stacked with daystar spacer.

If mine is at all an example of what "could be" we are all in trouble even sitting at under 23.

My Commander is lifted with the 2" Rough Country kit. I replaced the Commanders 245/65/17" tires with 265/70/17" which puts the total lift at around 3".

What are your hub to fender measurements? I find it hard to believe that you get 3 inches of lift from that set up. I have a 2.25 inch lift, with Bilstein HD's and 265/70/17's and I don't get 3 inches of lift.

Re: How do I get an actual 3" of lift on a 06 jeep wk

Please keep in mind ... I am just guessing at this and I have been told it is not advisable due to the angle of the front C/V's ( They would wear quickly )

With OME springs you get about 1" lift ,so if you went with a 2" spacer above the spring . That would get you 3" .

If you stacked a BB on top of a OME spring, I would highly advise you take the BB out. Measure from the center hub of your wheel, to the bottom of your fender. If that measurement is 23 or over, your asking for major problems.

But the BB with Load Levelers should be alright? I am in the process of installing the 463's in the rear. Just need to get the body lifted high enough lol.

Re: How do I get an actual 3" of lift on a 06 jeep wk

No need to touch the front. It has the spacer up there and plenty of clearance. After a few years of banging it all around I am planning to replace pretty much everything that the SL will include lol. Though I will lose articulation with the load levelers... But I don't think I will even try that kind of lift. Engine wouldn't like the right tires to go with it. At least that is my thinking. These are not the good old i-6's

Re: How do I get an actual 3" of lift on a 06 jeep wk

What Lucas said!!

OME springs will give 2" in the MD and around 2.5" in the HD, but only if there is no extra weight in the Jeep. With extra weight (ie steel bars, winch, extra batteries etc) this will come down quickly, as will your std coils with a BB lift.

The LL wont lose you any articulation, you should actually gain a little as they are longer then the OME, the rear will still be limited by the length of shocks travel you are using. With the limited arm lengths on the rear even with longer shocks it takes a lot of pressure on the rear to get it to flex fully. If you have larger tyres you can actually run up to a 28" long shock on the rear with a 3" coil (you have to notch the fuel tank skid) which works really well. Just need to bumpstop the rear slghtly wich also helps retatin the coil.
