WK Lifts - Your Opinion please?
 
Im lifting my jeep and cannot decide between the The Rock Krawler 3.5 Inch X Factor System for the Jeep Grand Cherokee WK or the Rocky Road 2.5 inch kit? any suggestions

Both are good but I've read that RK3.5 has better customer service.. and both companies have had minor issues with their lifts. I suggest you go to jeepsunimited.com and read up on the extensive conversations held over there regarding the subject.

Neither issue per lift is major but I do believe that some part of the installation instructions were wrong and have been corrected. Just follow up on it.

RK's been great but if you're gonna end up buying Bilsteins or some other shocks in that price range then you might want to go ahead and get the OME kit for the extra height+articulation. Once it's up you only want it higher.

OME all the way.

I've got the Rocky Road setup with bilsteins and I haven't had any issues yet. Only issue is exactly as Nick said once it's up you just want to go higher. Might as well go with the Superlift or the Rustys 4.5" lift :cool:

ya if i had the money I would without hesitation go with the OME or the Superlift. However, for the time being i was hoping to get a small 2-2.25 lift for the least amount of money until i can afford one of the bigger lifts. Thanks for your input everybody.

I'm in the same boat... wanting to put lift on my jeep but I'm also on a budget... looking to spend about 3k with tires and everything, after some research, I think the 2.5 spacer lift is the way to go... wish i could go a little bigger.

Yea I spent 2100 but that was at my uncles shop so got hooked up on the install. that was rro lift, 4 bfg at, bilsteins all around, and spidertrax wheel spacers.

Go RC, same height as RRO and RK (i had them all) but cheaper and you get a steel rear spacer as opposed to a poly spacer offered by the other two, they will eventually split within a year if you go off-road alot specially if the poly spacer is placed under the coil which is not recommended.

^sound advice. Yea I heard about the spacer under the coil thing so I made sure the guy put in on top.

Ive heard About these leveling Kits Like the 3.5 RK, 2 inch daystar and really want to pick one up and go for the install. But I ve heard they they cause major problems with front end components after racking up some miles. Anyone have any input on what I should?
