Go with a Rough Country lift since it uses a metal rear coil spacer which will outlast all other poly spacers sold with every other kit, i believe that lift kit is about $150. a 255/70/17 will fit with no modifications, and no need for wheel spacers. This setup will save you a good penny.

Where is everyone on this site gttong there info? Why does everyone think the poly lifts will fail? I have a 2in Puck lift that's been on my tj since 98 has over 225k on the spacers and they still look like new. The poly lifts will be around long after the metal lifts rust out.

You can't go wrong with any of the 2in lifts out there. Honestly there all low quality except the ome you get what you pay for. If your wanting it for looks get the cheapest. One you can find. If you want it for wheeling get ome or the superlift.

Poly spacers WILL fail. I have damaged two sets, Might be a weight difference in vehicles.

Re: What lift/tire size to go with?????

I have the Rocky Road 2.25 lift with 265/70/17's and 1.5 spacers. I kept my stock rims on as well. I like my set up, looks good handles off road well and does good on the highway. But there are a few different spacer kits you could go with.

Re: What lift/tire size to go with?????

Anyone recommend the Rock Krawler 3.5" X Factor shown on the website?

http://www.rockkrawler.com/images/RKWK35XF_03.jpg

GRAND CHEROKEE 3.5 X FACTOR SYSTEM




SKU: RKWK35XF
Suggested Retail: $349.00
The Rock Krawler 3.5 Inch X Factor System for the Jeep Grand Cherokee WK has been engineered to improve your WK's off-road ability while maintaining excellent street manors, providing simple installation and a lifetime of durability. Rock Krawler replaces the factory cast strut forks with new high quality precision welded laser cut steel units that are made from 1/4" thick material. This maintains the factory travel range and ride quality from the OEM front strut. In the rear, simple poly spring spacers are installed on top of the factory coil springs. By using this lift method you are assured a factory like ride that will remain sag free for life. The system is a complete bolt in product that is completely reversable. This is the best 3.5 Inch system on the market for Grand Cherokee WK's and is backed by our lifetime guarentee.
System Benefits:
1) Complete bolt in system.

2) Allows for 31 Inch Tires with no Fender Trimming or 32x11.5's with Minor Fender Trimming. Shown with 33x10.5R17 SSR's (265/70R17 SSR's) on 17x9 Helo Max 6 Wheels with 4.5 Inches of Back Space.

3) Factory like ride quality.

4) Improved off-road ability.

5) Vehicle is easily returned to stock which makes it perfect for lease units. Go ahead and trash the WK and turn it back in when your lease is up!

System Includes:
(2) precision welded strut forks made from 1/4 thick laser cut steel, (2) poly spring spacers, hardware, and detailed instructions.

Notes: Provides approximately 3.5" of lift in the front and 2" in the rear for a nice level stance. Can be used with OEM rear shocks. Rear shocks that are 2" longer than OE are recommended, but not required for installation.

Re: What lift/tire size to go with?????

I have the rock krawler lift and love it. It has great road manners, and handles well off road. My only complaint or issue I need to fix, is the rear shocks should definitely be longer. When you really flex the suspension, the back end feels like it isn't living up to it's potential. But that's something that can be fixed or upgraded during installation.

Re: What lift/tire size to go with?????

I do not recommend the 3.5 X Factor lift. You don't get 3.5" of lift.
