2" Rough Country Lift & Larger Tires
 
I am researching right now but I'm considering installing a 2" Rough Country coil spacer lift with RC 8000 shocks and 245/75/16 Kumho Road Venture SAT tires on my '04 GC WJ. Based on the size difference from the stock size of 225/75/16 to the 245s there is approximately 1-1/4" difference in the diameter of the tires. What issues could this cause with the ABS working properly and should I also consider a programmer to reset the computer to allow for the oversize tires and keep the speedometer correct?
Thanks.
Greg

The antilock system will be ok and the speedo will be off 4 to 5 mph so you could wait for a programmer but I say get it now!!!! and have fun.

Thats pretty much what I decided today. I've ordered the lift w/shocks and am pricing tires locally. Town Fair Tire says that they will match any tire price including internet and will match the same price for mounting and balancing plus 5% more off. I've decided on the Kumho Road Venture SAT, can get them at Wally World on line for $136 ea plus 6.50 ea mounted and balanced. Town Fair says they will match it and also do a front end alignment as part of the package. Sounds like the way to go. Just need to get the lift here, change my sway bar end links and change out the ball joint on the upper control arm.
I'm not a big off-roader, just want that taller look and larger tires that will work better on-road than off.
I'll post some before and after photos once I get it done.
