Re: What lift kit?

The RR 2.5" lift is a full front and rear lift kit, It actually gives you more lift in the front and a little less in the back to even it out a little bit. It's a different kit than the 1.75"...

Re: What lift kit?

The RR 2.5" lift has been great for me so far. Rocky Road is the only company stepping up and offering lifts for the WK2.

Re: New RRO leveling kit, Done the right way!!!

You're only lifting 2.5" which is within factory specs of what the Quadralift does anyway, so what type of problems are they referring to? If you were talking 6" of lift with major changes to...

Re: Backspacing

The 17's are +56 I believe, 18's are probably similar if not same. 0 offset is a popular aftermarket backspace. Mine are -6 and I like them a lot. I don't think JK spacers fit on the WK2, someone...

Keep in mind though, if you have a Hemi I don't think 17's clear the brakes so you need to stick with at least 18's

Re: Differences between 265/60/18 and 275/65/18
