Moving this week!

Hello all!

Recently acquired an '07 WK with the Rocky Mountain package. Figured I could do more with it than my Crown Vic it replaced.

I'm moving to Mountain Home for the Air Force. Looking forward to having access to an auto shop again to work on the jeep. Plan on adding a 2" lift and some bigger tires in the next couple months.

Here's my WK currently.

Welcome. There is a good local 4x4 club in Mtn Home called Wild West Off Roaders.

Thanks! I'll check out the site.

Any chance you have some experience putting a lift on a Jeep?

There are several folks on here that might help with the lift. In Mtn Home, Bowman Transmission on Air Base Road would be one shop that will treat you right. Chris Bowman owns it, is a wheeler in local events. Fair and knows his way around 4x4's.

Picking up a rough country 2" lift Saturday along with a set of 275/70/17s and 1.5" spacers.

Would like to do it at the Auto Hobby Shop but I have no knowledge in installing lift kits.

I can give you a hand and we can knock it out I suggest getting the wheels done by commercial tire. Is the lift a budget boost or springs? Post a link if you can.
