06 WK 2wd lift???????????????
i have a 2006 Black wk with 245/65/17 Firestone Destination ATs, and would like to lift my jeep a little. I know there are 10million threads on this topic, but i have a questions.

I wont be upgrading tires anytime soon, only have about 25k miles on the destinations, i dont really do any off roading excpet for hunting season or maybe get off the beaten path every now and then to go kayaking. but how do you think a 2wd wk will look with a 2" Rough Country lift.

I mainly want it for the looks, i love the way a jeep wk looks with all terrains.

However, what i HATE is a huge gap b/w the tire and fenderwell, such as a chevrolet 2500.... those things look like they have a foot of space b/w the slick tires and the fenderwells.

I've removed the little 6" lip that attaches to the bottom of the front bumper, i always hated that thing, and now i really want to lift it a little, i just dont want it to look akward b/c its a 2wd with some average size tires.

so what do you think???? Im also tossing up the idea of putting some 1" spacers along with a 2" lift to give it a little wider stance also.

If anyone has pics of a wk lifted with 245/65/17 on factory wheels PLEASE POST PICS. I'd love to see how it'll look. Thanks

The fact that's it 2wd will not change the stance. The fact that u have 245s is gonna make it look like alot of empty space.

thats kinda what i was worried about....... any opinions on if it will look better or worse 2inch lifting with the 245s

It will be fine, tires might look tiny thought.

yah, thats why im HOPING to find a pic of a wk lifted with 245s to decide whether or not i want to go through with the lift, b/c the one thing i hate the most is a whole lot of extra wheel well space.

I am a payed member and i believe you need a certain amount of posts to be able to show pictures.

Those are 245/65/17's

Fulcher88 03-08-2011 02:37 PM

I got ya. Thx. Did u get my pics keeper?

jeeper006 03-08-2011 02:49 PM

got em fulcher, thanks a bunch.

i've found 2 jeeps on this site so far that have 245s with a Rough Country 2" and i like the way they look. One has highway tires, and one has nice set of all terrains and i like the way they look, so i think im gonna try it out. HOPEFULLY it looks ok.

acidcold, thats a little more wheel well space than im, looking for. i guess different companies work different ways, b/c you have a 2.25 and that looks like alot compared to the 2" RC ones i've seen, makes me wonder if the RC ones are really a full 2inches
