WK setup opinions-Help

I have a 2010 WK. What I want to do is put the rock krawler 3.5" lift in it with the bilstein HD's all the way around. I plan on purchasing the 20" Srt8 reps and what I would really like to do is fit them with 275.65.20 Wrangler Duratracs. I know I will have to get some kind of wheel spacer to come even close to fitting these in there and I may still have to trim. Just seeking your opinion and if you have any input or see any issues with the plan. Thanks

Re: WK setup opinions-Help

I've heard that the RK lift isn't really 3.5" but more like 2".

JonJon , do you happen to have any measurements from fender to center of hub as a comparison? Stock is about 19" front and 19.25" rear.

It's 21.25" front and back. It leveled it out nicely but not 3.5".

Re: WK setup opinions-Help

With the Rough Country 2.25" I was 21.5" in front and 21" rear (Level). I added longer than stock coil over springs in the rear which boosted me up to 22.4" in the rear.

All together (RC lift and Rear shocks) was less then $300. Still 1/2 the price of OME Springs and just as high. (though not as much flex)

I would definitely like a superlift but with two kids, I can't seem to get my wallet out of my wifes hands. Lol

X2. She has access to my account from her computer. I get automatic deposit and she immediately takes it all. At least thats what it feels like.

I couldn't even sock enough away for the OME let alone the Superlift.

I might have to look into the super lift. Does anyone know if that gives you a true 4" or how much more lift it realy gives you over the RK. I dont exactly want to drop 1500 on the lift alone but I might have to.
