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

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".

maybe consider the superlift?

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.:confused: At least thats what it feels like.:lol:

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.
