Wk lift kits

I'm planing on lifting my 05 wk what size do you guys think I should go. I want to go bigger then 2 but from what I red it's not a good idea.

Re: Wk lift kits

you can go over 2" as long as your hub to fender measurements stay at or below 23". you could go Old Man Emu HD and youll be right around that 22+" mark. if you search for the modified OME set up, youll find guys taking this kit to the 23" mark with positive results.


I just installed the Old Man Emu MD springs on my WK and im right below 22", rides great.

lol 22s.. you can put whatever size rim you want on your jeep.

my 22" comment was in reference to your hub to fender measurement. if you keep that under 23" youll be fine. the OME HD, which is advertised as a 2" kit will net you 2.5", which should put you around 22.5" from hub to fender. the MD version of the OME lift is a 2" lift and will net you under 22" hub to fender.
