Would be nice if the U.S. models got the power folding mirrors like the older 06ish overland's. I kinda liked that feature even in my normal size two car garage I always retracted the mirrors.

DC your WKII Looks fantastic - very nice... very very nice.

I installed additional back up lights myself.. So i can manually turn on or off... it's actually pretty useful, I originally got it for towing, but then I found it could be useful to turn on with little cars that like to tailgate me. Or when i'm in the park late and need some additional light if i just happen to be behind the vehicle. Me likey... but once i get my rola rack, i'm sure i'm moving these up top.. Anytime i go offroad, I fear i will break one of these against the bumper.

That's on the Broken Arrow trail in Sedona, AZ, the same trail from my earlier picture. It's not quite Moab but it's a lot closer.

Those are 265/65R18s and the QL is on the Off-Road 2 setting which is the highest.

If you ever get some spare time, could you take some driveway shots of your jeep in Regular, Offroad 1, and Offroad 2? From my understanding, Offroad 2 is 2.6" higher than normal. Offroad 2 looks huge. It looks like you have lots of room to spare. Do you have any rubbing in normal mode, driving around on the street? What about if you tried to offroad it in normal mode?

Sorry for all the questions, but I will probably be getting a WK2 in the near future, but it will only be a Q-trac II. So I'm trying to figure out what size tire I can get away with.

Thanks, Lucas

I can get you some pictures but in the meantime check this guy's WK2 out. He doesn't have QL and was able to fit the next size up of BFG AT on his. Without using wheel spacers or wheels with different backspacing I don't think you could go any bigger than his size. Not only is tire height an issue but also width since there is very little clearance from the inside of the tire to the suspension.

On mine there is a lot of room but when flexing it the tires will fill up the wheel well as they should. There's no rubbing at all, even at full turn and with it lowered down in Sport mode. I've driven off-road in Normal Ride height but haven't done anything crazy with it like that. That's why I got QL! I don't think it would make any difference with tire clearance since the suspension is going to move up into the vehicle only so much no matter what mode it is in.

Those BFG's fit, but I don't think you could take that offroad. They appear so tight that if you went through any kind of dip, they would chew up the fenders.

I like the 265/65r18's. I'm thinking 1.5"-2" of lift would be perfect for this size tire (for the folks that don't have QL). What do you think?

I guess we'll have to wait to hear from 2011Hemi how those tires perform. I personally wouldn't go any bigger than the size I have since, in addition to any possible clearance issues, larger tires will likely mean less fuel economy, even if just a little.

I think you could go off-roading just fine with 265/65R18's without a lift. At this point nobody knows how aftermarket lifts will perform but I can say that it does ride a bit rougher when at Off-Road I height and even rougher at Off-Road II. I don't know if it's because of the air shocks or the angle of suspension, but it is noticeable and I wouldn't want to drive it around normally like that.

These aren't driveway picks but it should give you an idea of how much clearance these tires have. From top to bottom the QL is in Park, Aero (Sport), Normal, OR-I, and OR-II.

That would be me.
I haven't had any rubbing or contact issues so far. I've only had them a week and only played around off road once in the mountains at camp.
There is another member on here (getoutandplay) that is running 32's also and he has said he has no problems either and he has done more off roaring than me. He is running 275/50R20 Nitto Terra Grapplers on stock 20's.
