First post- my 2011 WK2
 
Hey guys.

Picked this up a month ago. Was a service department loaner, had only 1000kms on it. Has the tow package, ORA1, and the convenience group!

Did the 2.5" RRO, Sahara 32's. Today I installed my brake controller for towing a tent trailer next weekend, haha I need a 6" drop to get it level now:)

Today I also removed the two small lower airdams, looks much better!!

Very nice. One question though. How is the ride after the 2.5" lift? Do you see any difference in handling? Mileage? Comfort?

thanks,

Thanks!!

Ride is the exact same, great, since it's just a spacer lift and shock relocation. I believe, and will confirm this weekend, that the load levelling shocks still work.

And as far as mileage, too early to tell for sure, very close, and have to consider that the speedo and mileage is off due to the new diameter tires.

Did you put wheel spacers on?

No spacers, lots of caliper clearance, will check suspension clearance next time I'm under it.

I have the same RRO lift; lost an average of 2-3 mpg. Rides fine. I'd do a Superlift if I could though :)

Finally got to get it out and get it dirty, test out all the select terrain settings, low range, hill descent..
Went out with the local Jeep club exploring a local abandoned mine, was mostly forest service roads, one small creek crossing. Fun none the less, gopro wasn't cooperating so wound up with very little video.
