thanks bud, I couldnt have wanted to look any better than it does!




Thank you... I do not wheel in my WK2..... The spacer should hold up

Why do you feel the daystar spacers are not a long term solution? I ran 2" poly spacers on the bottom of my rear WJ springs with no issues.

because these spacers arent made for the WK2, they are for a TJ. they fit in great and do what they are supposed to but the way I wheel my jeeps, theres no way they would last. I also had poly spacers on my HEMI WK1 and they were fine, but the spacers were made for that model.

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

Got my RRO leveling lift on a couple weeks ago... just ordered:
(5) 265/70/17 BFG Rugged Terrains
Tow hooks, front and t-case skid plates (finally).
Soon to be next: Fuel tank skids, and either Aero crossbars or some type of basket, haven't decided.
Will post pics when I get the new rubber on. Went with these after A LOT of looking. Narrowed down to Firestone Destination A/T's, Duratracs, or these. Went with these as I'll admit 95% I'm onroad, and 5% on the farm, so the BFG RT's should look mean but play nice on the street. Who knows what they'll do offroad, but not a big concern.

Can you share what wheels you have? They are what I've been looking for!

Mickey Thomson special edition. They are 17's and you will need the level to keep them from rubbing even if you run stock 17" tire size. You can probably go up a size if you have the level. I am running stock size.

Thanks for the info, SightSeeker.

Too bad I dont want to raise my Jeep but to lower it when lowering springs come out. I guess I will have to look somewhere else.

They do look right on your Jeep FWIW.

You might be able to find something similar that will fit. These have a -12 offset so they stick out over an inch from the fender.
