Wk Lift Kits

I know there are probably a ton of lift kit threads on here but I figured id start another one. What are some good lift kits anywhere from 3" and up for the 2014?

None 3 inches, unless you are into major modification thats not going to happen. 2 1/2 by rocky road. Be patient as perhaps EMU will be out with something soon.

Although a bit off topic, That's pretty much consistent with what's been posted here over the last three years. Use OR2 only when you need the ground clearance and when very slow going. Most find OR2 ok as far as ride and is the typical choice for trail riding. You need to slow down perhaps if you think it's too rough. For fast going, normal height is much better.

I tried OR2 on a trail and it was so rough I was getting thrown all around the seat.

Should I air down the tires or something when on a trail? I had the forteras at 36 psi...

Or maybe I should get off road tires when I plan to go off road? and air down to what?

Thats what most are saying. Airing down does not help, the only thing that works is to slow to an appropriate speed.. something like a crawl.. slow enough that you are not being thrown around. It does not appear to be a race truck suspension.

Check the wheel and tire threads for background. Its complicated and depends on the wheels you use, but so called 32s should fit without rub. You can go larger by bending back pinch welds and trimming the liner.

Yep...depends on the tires AND the wheels. Some have fit 33"s, but I would venture to guess 99% of the people are running an actual OD of 32".

Note * depending on your combo, you may be required to bend the pinch weld. I researched and was told I wouldn't have to, well...I did! Just be prepared for that.

if you go with a 255 width you can run a 32" w/o a lift and with a lift zero issue. Mine are even fine in park height on QL. OR2 is for short term use at crawl speed off road to clear something or water crossing. OR1 is where I leave it and it will def ride better AIRED down. I like 20-22# off road.

I air down my silent armors to 18-20 psi when we hit Moab or local. Yes ORII is rough but has pretty decent clearance but that setting is only intended for crawling at lower speeds. When we were on the trails I alternate between ORI and ORII depending on the obstacle and the trail. It is IFS / IRS so not much articulation, but it is a different animal to wheel that's for sure.
