Show your Rock Krawler Lifts.

like the topic says, that way it helps people when deciding which lift to get just to see different pics of jeeps and different sizes of RK.

here's mine:
















'05 Bright Silver Metallic Rubicon
5.5" Rock Krawler L.A. Kit, Rubicon Express Mono Tube Shocks, 305/7016 BFG M/T's on Moabs with SpiderTrax Spacers, KC SlimLites Fogs, Ramsey Patriot 9500lb winch, TKH bumper & tire/hi-lift carrier, Rokmen Rockers Cobra 18WX-ST II CB Radio w/ a 4 ft Wilson Antenna.

First...nice looking Jeep...

here's a couple posts from another board I'm on, which has a lot of VERY knowledgable suspension fabricators and wheelers:

I've heard alot of bad stuff about RK early products, but I've heard alot of good stuff about them lately. I have a friend running one of their kits and he's very happy with it. His also flexes much better than in those pics, too.

I didn't get to try it out yet, but it rides better than stock. Oh, in those pics, I am not disconnected...

Ah, that makes sense then. My friend has tweaked his as much as possible (for him at least) and he's very happy with it. He keeps telling me to come drive it, but I haven't had the chance yet. He's had it on a couple wheeling trips and drives it to work occasionally and is very happy with it.

here's mine:

good looking rubi. but have two questions:
1) what is your wheelbase now?
2) can you adjust the arms out any more to center the rear wheel in the wheel well? looks like the rear wheel is moved forward.

it may be moved forward a bit...but remember, as the rear suspension flexes, the wheel will move "back" as it moves "up" as it follows the arc the control arm will travel...

exactly what Big Waylon said. My wheel base, I am not sure of, I dropped it off at the shop to fab up some rock sliders and didn't get the chance to measure yet...
