Here's who I asked about their lift. I believe his specs are on the page before.

Here's musclez's build thread. Should have the details of his lift when he 1st installed and then a bit later.

There is probably a lot more pics and threads around on there, but I just skimmed the 1st page. I've been busy getting ready for my trip to Florida.

. I posted that chart on some other thread as you said because tommud was always answering questions about tire sizes, lifts, rubbing, etc etc. I put it together just from what Ive gathered here and suggested someone who actually knows/can correct it and make it an official guide.

On a side note to the OP, i have 235/75/16's on mine and i dont have any issues with rubbing, even on the trails on stock (now sagged no doubt) springs. and they are just shorter than the 245/75s

Hey Sagerist,

Off the topic a little, how well does that 2' firestik work for you? Santa is bringing me that setup so will be installing it in a few weeks. Was just curious if I made the right choice with the 2' or if I should have went with the 3'.

The 2 foot works pretty good and i haven't had any issues with it. I have had my buddy in his JK with the 4 footer get pretty far ahead of me on one of the trails ( Hagerman pass) with a ton of trees and what not creating a lot of interference and we still had great Como. I choose the two foot because i park in a garage at work and didnt want the antenna smacking all the time every time i went in and out. Although i did think about getting a three foot for when im actually on the trails and dont have to worry about clearance issues.

So really it depends on what you want and how you plan on using it, but the two foot works just fine. you will just get a bit better of a range with the three foot, especially if you decide to put a basket on there eventually. but no complaints from me about the 2'


This is what it looks like with the two footer on for reference. Almost a foot above the top of the jeep if you dont count the ski racks.



You can barely see it, but i also have a third antenna up there for my fire/ems stuff that just is a magnet that sits on the roof, to the left of the CB antenna.

I like that. It is a perfect height. It is cruelly a bit higher than I pictured but you do raise a point about when I add the basket. I can always upgrade to the 3ft I guess and alternate for my needs. Only a few twists of a thread.

Exactly, plus the spring you add on there gets you another four inches or so. I think its the perfect height for not having to worry about thrashing it. I think musclezmarinara had a picture of his when he first put on his three foot on the KK and while it looked good, it was so high above the roof that it would only be good if you never had to drive under trees, powerlines, streetlights etc, Which is why i chose the 2 in the first place.

and you will only need the medium duty spring for the 2'. mine doesnt even move on the trails at all and my buddies with the 4' and the heavy duty wags like a overly excited dog. lol

Ha ha...good to know. I thought the heavy duty would be a little bit of overkill.
