Re: ARWK2 Overland

Looks great! I have to say if Hummer ever came back I would be all over it. Now doubt that will ever happen, but nothing had quite the look or presence of their vehicles.

ARWK2 Overland

Here is the semi finished product. My Llams controller is set on Medium (1.25" above stock in all settings). Tires are 275/60/20 Nitto G2s. I removed the 1.25" wheel spacers and went with a 20x8.5 chrome spider monkey wheel from OE Replicas. +42 offset. Did the pinch welds and pulled the felt back. Also I removed the front splash guards and trimmed the front of the inside part of the front flares. No rubbing at all, even in the parking or entry/exit mode. Basically 33x10.8r20s on an Overland with QL. Thanks to Alludc and a lot of the others who gave me advice. Especially the folks at Chief Products. They went way out of their way with pictures of what to trim and how much of it. I hope this helps some people out, especially the QL guys that feel stuck with a 32" tire.

Re: ARWK2 Overland

Very nice, thanks for sharing.
Do you know overall how much height you gained?
How is the ride in the highest setting, any different than before, in the highest setting?


thanks

On High it's 2" above all the normal settings and the ride is quite a bit stiffer. I don't recommend it and the compressor tries to run too long if you go to OR2 and the module is in high. That's why I leave it on the medium setting.

Looks good, link for the splash guard trimming you did?

That is the front and rear. It's hard to tell, but what I did was to put it into ENTRY/EXIT and have the Llams unit on the setting I run with. After that I used trial and error, just taking off very small amounts with a small cutting wheel. I also added the 1.25 " wheel spacers back. I liked the look. If they were still not on and I had a true +42 offset, very little trimming would have been needed. Now though I have no rub while in ENTRY/EXIT.

Re: ARWK2 Overland

I see, wasn't sure what trim was actually cut. Thanks. And where did you purchase the Llams unit?

On the top right is a drop down. Email him and I believe you can still buy it directly from him. Mine was $350 shipped from Australia and took about a week to arrive. Good luck and let me know if you have any more questions.

Re: ARWK2 Overland

I just traded in my 2014 laredo for a 2016 Overland with QL.

Can you run the Llams kit at the 2" above normal in OR1 at highway/interstate speeds? Is the normal, extra 1.25" above jeep normal mode, level in front and rear?

I hate how the nose dips down, but still want the aero/sport modes to work with a 275/55/20 tire.

Thoughts/opinions much appreciated.

Re: ARWK2 Overland

I can't speak for the 2016, but mine works perfectly. I have a 2011. I don't recommend running it on the HIGH setting, which is 2" over factory in every setting. I keep mine on MEDIUM all the time which is 1.25 above factory in all settings. You should go to his website and ask about the 2016.
