wj Srt (read)!!
 
im pretty sure you guys heard over and over of a wj srt..... but mines is going to be the most original! im not going to be using 20 inch srt8 rims. im going to be using the original wj Rogue rims... and build my own SRT. i already lowered it and i want to put an exhaust that isnt TOO loud but when you press on the gas.. it sounds like you shouldnt mess with it. Just give me some idea.... because i want to be original!

P.S since ill be using Rogue rims. what is the widest tires i can put

Rim- 17x7.5
currently have 245/65/r17
Want to Have- 275-65/r17

We ran 275/55 r17 on our 02 with the chrome rogues. Gave the jeep a nice stance, no rubbing, and speedometer did not need to be recalibrated. For reference, ours is a limited and not an overland. I miss those tires, I think it road better.

Looks good, def do the roof rack delete tho. Makes it look so much more clean and sleek.

It just un-bolts from the top lol. But you will need some christmas tree clips and clear silicone to plug the holes. How far are you lowering it? There is not much room at all between the axle and bump stop with stock suspension.

Only lowered it an inch 1/2... Tire size won't mess with the quadra drive?

As long as you keep the same overall diameter front and rear your good. Tire width does not matter, there is a guy running a staggard set of reps without an issue.

That would be me. 9" OEM SRTS in the front and 10" in the rear. Had some rubbing issues in the rear.. Installed a 1/4" wheel spacer and rubbing is gone! Also installed Bilstein 45 series shocks and installed a rubber "accordion style" boot on to move it further away from the wheel. Tires are P255/45ZR20 up front, P285/40ZR20 out back.

Do you have a hitch on it? If not, a center exit exhaust hasn't been done yet on a WJ (that I know of)...
