Not at all. It's Jeepin_it_real's KK. He was rubbing the front bumper, and he's a little over 4". Forgot the exact numbers he said he had up front.

Edit: I went through our Facebook conversations, he said he's at 22.5" up front. He lowered it a little from the 23" when he 1st lifted. Rear is 23.75".

How many gallons did it take? When I got 401 miles to a tank it was over 18 gallons.

I did! Still like taking the LJ off more because it's about 50x more capable. The ground clearance blows on the KK stock.

Took my KK for the first time wheeling today... It was short lived due to a steep muddy hill that I couldn't get up. I am now in a desperate need for tow hooks. I'm a little disappointed that I didn't do better.. But I know its my stock tires and not the KK.

I know there are videos of my attempt so I'll post when it comes available.


Glad I took that air dam off.. Other wise it'd be gone.

Sounds like a lot of it was the same way! Got about 23 heading in to NC from Indiana and the last 60% of the tank was at 25.2 heading out. My wife's eyes were rolling around from my excitement.

I drove like an old man this morning while leaving. Weather was beautiful and we were driving through the mountains just as the sun came up. Didn't gas it much higher than 65 the whole way through and coasted down hill much of the way...

Get the tow hooks for the KJ. You get a pair instead of only one on the KK.

Agreed but the "M" bolt should be avoided. Here's a thread that may interest you.

Yeah I know that thread about M bolts and it'd be my luck that one would rip off.

did you ever find out if it was the ignition that caused the root issue?
