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

I'm thinking about getting one of these as well, going to check with the dealer tomorrow to see if it will void the warranty.

Thoughts on using the aluminum procomp TJ spacers instead of the poly TJ spacers in the back for the 0.75 below the coil? I don't get crazy off road, but do use my WK2 for towing.

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

Talked to the dealer today- they said that while it wouldn't void warranty I would have to remove the leveling kit each time I went to get Service on something suspension related. Does that seem right?

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

Does anyone know if by installing the leveling kit it will throw off the equilibrium of the engine?. For example, as the motor sits now it is level or at the proper angle to make sure everything works properly. Will raising the front 1.75 inches throw that equilibrium off?

If you are referring to the drive shaft ? the Quadralift raises the JeeP 2.5" so as long as you keep it at that highth or under IMO it should not cause any issues with the drive line

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.
Any word? Did these tires fit?

Those would probably hold up better than the poly spacers for sure. I wheel mine pretty hard and still have no wear issues.

I dont know what kind of dealer you take yours to, but ive been taking my WK and WK2 to the dealers for years with my lift kits installed and they do service on them. Including suspension warranty. They replaced my upper and lower control arms (for the worn bushings) the struts, and my cv axles on my wk and i had a rock krawler 4" lift on it. The WK2 just got a CV boot replaced under warranty with my RRO lift installed too. they dont even question me about it.

I installed this lift yesterday myself.

Took about 4 hours with two guys. First time working on an IFS so we had a few learning moments ( both axels falling out and RRO not giving instructions on how to get them back in) but we got it done.

If you have 2wheel drive then its easy as cake and could be done in less than 2 hours, 4wd is the hard one. Getting the axles out of the way is tough.

You need a good metric socket set, wrench set, allen wrench, cut off saw and hand sledge. This is a good two person do it yourself kit. Nothing you cant handle. The RRO installation instructions are great besides the axle thing.

I was gonna do a write up on it but the instructions they give cover everything. Just be prepared that the axles will pop out. The key is to jack the LCA until the axle is horizontal then push in and out on the knuckle till it pops back in.

I will post a pic in a few.


If anybody has any questions just ask. If I get to help my other buddy with his I will make a video to post on youtube.
