I am the wrong guy to ask. This was all gravel road up until I got to the area where I took the pic, and even then it was a construction vehicle trail, so it was pretty well packed down. I had my 10mo son in the backseat, plus I was 300 miles from home, so I didn't dare try anything stupid though I was tempted.

I had them on a "fluffy beach" a few years ago and they were fine aired down to about 25 psi. They are pretty much similar to any all-season when it comes to light off-road.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

I installed the LLAMS controller on my Summit today. I also did a rinseless wash wipedown. Since I still need to do the paint correction, I am being a little less anal about what I touch the paint with.

Cannot wait to get the Flex and Rupes out to make this paint hit real hard.

I've got srt springs. About 1" drop all the way around. Although my rear seems lower than 1". Eibach will do same on front, but 2" on back. So it will sit level, no rake.

Looks good man.

I'm confuse which srt springs are the one that fit in ours. If there are two.
Is this one from Mopar the one that comes from factory on the SRT or an Upgrade to lower the srt more?
Jeep Grand Cherokee Lowering Springs (Part No: 77072328)

Here is the thread I did about 3 options. Also some people use just the rear srt springs and other blistein shocks.

Lowering Springs Help

Never saw things springs. Interesting. I used oem srt. Front part no 05181500AB and rear 05181502AA. Bought a used set on eBay. Couple guys in this forum will sell if you post in wk2 srt forum. All wk2 springs for srt will fit. I have ecodiesel and had load leveling. Bought my shocks from Anthony. Standard oem rear. I would go bilstein if you swap all 4 coils. I may swap all shocks at some time.

Yes, thinking to do the same. Just springs for now then blistein shock when the oem get busted. I replay your built threat about the load leveling but I guess you responded here. Don't have tow pk option so normal shocks on mine.

If u check your speedo against the GPS and from the factory the in OZ anyway is out 5kph. So doing 100 u r actually only doing 95kph. Going to the 285 makes it spot on. Doing 100 on speedo is 100 on the road.
