FYI, I had two buddies in the back last night and had rubbing in the rear after a larger than average dip in the road at moderate speed. I usually don't have anyone in the back so it won't be an issue but some of you may. The aggressive offset of my rears may have contributed as well.
Chad, or anyone that knows this answer please.

Is his rubbing with passengers strictly due to the wheel offset? The FR 22's will allow rear passengers without rubbing on the mid drop correct?

Re: Road Magent Mid Levels

Sorry I just saw this been out for a week.

I'm unsure of what would be rubbing only thing I think of is that it's the carpet on the inside of the fender well honestly it sticks way out on the underside away from the rolled edge.

The Offset of the FR should be O.K. with the mids and extremes this is the first I've heard of someone rubbing. I know he did say larger than average dip and that never helps I mean these are the things we now have to deal with when customizing no such thing as keeping OEM settings and customizing LOL.

I think the Mids should be fine no matter the size of the pothole.

Re: Road Magent Mid Levels

IMO any of these after market lowering springs will ALL rub with people in the back.
i think you need to do shocks and spring to do it 100% , mine rub on bumps as well.
any one know some shocks to upgrade to ?
or coilovers ?

What kind of springs do you have DASKO?

Again this is the first I've heard of any sort of rubbing of the Extremes and a larger than average bump.

The RM mids and 1.8 & 1.8 have no issues that I am aware of to date and their are at least 75 sets out their and this one comment above is the first of another 75 sets of Extremes.

Coil-Overs will be next to impossible to MFG and it's defiantly a project I'm staying far away from after the 2 year fiasco with the last setup. I asked 2 years ago and they have actually said they are not interested in doing them because of the complexity of them with all the electronics.

Their is noting wrong with the OEM struts with aftermarket spring setup in fact it's quite nice.

IMO you will wast 1,000's of dollars doing what the OEM does best and why ruin the comfort of the OEM ride quality. Most who contact me I mean 99% of people want it lower but want to maintain the OEM ride quality that's why they choose RM and not Eibachs.

I am buttoning up all the loose suspension with stiffer bushings and larger arms front and rear fully adjustable to take out all the deflection on the suspension. This should be more than enough for anyone wanting a solid suspension especially in Track mode. I'm not sure we can top the OEM settings on the suspension no matter how long we R&D any setup this is why we choose to get rid of all the soft bushings and just do springs the arms are really noticeable from what the test Truck tells me so when it's all put together it should be quite nice.

Re: Road Magent Mid Levels

Hell mine never rubbed with the stock fronts on the back and 2 adults equalling 400lbs in the back. Must be a camber issue, probably really negative then the weight made it worse

Are you talking about a magnetic front license plate?

Yes. MA requires a front plate; I refuse to drill into my bumper, or display one. I put heavy duty magnets on the inside of the bumper, and on the back of the OEM front plate bracket. I keep it in the back, just in case I get stopped, and so I can pass inspections.

Yea they require a front plate here in TX also. I'm gonna have to steal that idea. Too bad whoever had this jeep before me didn't think of that!
