Re: New RRO leveling kit, Done the right way!!!

I wanted to add some pics of my RRO kit along with the Pro Comp wheels I mentioned before...

Pics of it installed...





With the Wrangler wheels and RRO...






With the Pro Comp wheels and the RRO... (black wheels are tough to photograph...)






And then I added the Trailhawk grille and emblem (I also did the Trailhawk liftgate brow, but didn't grab a phot of it yet...





To be installed next...Bushwacker fender flares!

Before:
Rear: 35"
Front: 33"

After
Rear: 35"
Front: about 1/8" above 35"

Maybe it will have to settle but if it doesn't, I will put some spacers in the rear...maybe just 1/2" if they make them. I'll do some searching.

Since we are talking about it, tomorrow I am getting some Pro Comp 7036 wheels on it. Can't wait!

Then next week, new Bushwacker WK2 flares go into the body shop to be painted body color.

Right after that, on goes the Trailhawk grille and tailgate piece.

This is gonna look pretty damn good when I am done. I'll post pics.

Thanks to all who have contributed to this thread!
Did it ever level out? Is the rear still a tad lower than the front?

Re: New RRO leveling kit, Done the right way!!!

When using the RRO leveling kit in the front and a 3/4in spacer in the rear, are there any alignment problems? Im planing on doing this set-up on my wifes 2014 JGC 2wd as she doesnt want to lower it and I hate how the front sits so low compared to the rear. Also do you guys think itll sit close to level while pulling a trailer (Polaris RZR S on a 6x10 open trailer)?

Either it did or I got used to the look.

Just to follow up...I finally got to the Bushwackers in addition to the RRO and Pro Comp wheels mentioned above...
Bushwacker Fender Flares Installed on my WK2!

I think the combo of the RRO leveling lit, Bushwacker flares, and wheels is killer.

BTW...if anyone is interested in my custom painted Wrangler wheels in the above pics, PM me. I will be putting them up for sale.

Re: New RRO leveling kit, Done the right way!!!

Received my leveling kit from RRO yesterday and I'm super pumped to have it installed. I was going to have a couple friends help me with the install but I called the dealer and they said that they would do it for $180 ... Ill post what they say and give a ride report with measurements upon completion. Thanks!

Re: New RRO leveling kit, Done the right way!!!

That reminds me...I haven't noticed any decrease in ride quality at all.

Re: New RRO leveling kit, Done the right way!!!

Just got the RRO leveling kit installed at the dealer today and I couldn't be happier! They charged me $250 for the install and 4-wheel alignment. All-in-all it took them 3.5 hours. They mentioned no problems with the install. On the 20 minute drive home my ride was nice and smooth just like before. I drove onto a dirt path to test the bounce and everything seemed to ride like before.
Ground clearance: in my level garage is 10-1/2 in the front and about 9-1/2 in the center.
Rear measurement from ground to fender: 34-1/2 inches
Front measurement from ground to fender: went from 33in to 34-5/8
On level ground my jeep appears to be sitting perfectly level. I will report back next time I have the jeep loaded down. Still debating between a yakima windjammer or the fairing. Here ya go! before then after!
