Re: Rear tire rub issues
Ok.. so went to the scale today at a local truck stop. Here are the values..
Jeep unloaded, except for me and a full tank of diesel = 4980 lbs (front axle 2660 lbs/rear axle 2320 lbs)
Jeep with trailer attached (front axle 2540 lbs/rear axle 2680 lbs)
Trailer, unloaded, not attached to Jeep = 1180 lbs.
Trailer, loaded with two bikes, not attached to Jeep = 2640 lbs.
Trailer, loaded with two bikes, attached to Jeep = 2400 lbs. (axle weight)
Went over a few dips at 100 kph (62 mph) and no rub issues..... so maybe the Jeep was overloaded before????. Anyway, my only concern with getting the SRT springs and shocks is that it lowers the WK about an inch or so overall. Does that put me in jeopardy of rubbing if the body is already lower by adding the loaded trailer? Just trying to analyze the whole scenario before I take the plunge and change the suspension. What do you all think?
