So I got this silver wk about three weeks ago and I've just been reading threads and gathering ideas these past few weeks. Today I did the first mod and only one for a couple weeks or so cause I just got my wisdom teeth out so I do t have. Much money and my next check won't be that good.
Plans are right now to get a RC 2" lift with some 265/75/17's. Hopefully I can find some moabs and just put the 265's on them first then I'll get the lift. After that, I'll buy a ome md lift and just add it to the rc lift.
Nice dude! I like the plasti-dip personally. I'm big on it too. That and bedliner. Might i suggest removing the plastic front air dam? That's a pretty liked first mod. I like the MOPAR on the rear end as well.
Jake, your build thread is nice! I like it, read it all and about the air dam. I'm contemplating taking it off but I hear you lose a mpg or two and I like conserving my gas haha. And the Mopar turned out a lot better then I thought it would. I'm ordering some 1.5" wheel spacers Monday.
After that, I'll buy a ome md lift and just add it to the rc lift.
Congrats on recently picking up a WK! Best of luck with it. I would advise against stacking a 2" BB lift on top of a OME, you will destroy your CV's, UCA's and your steering rack. Unfortunately with the WK if you want to go 4"+ your looking at a lot of work and a big price tag.
Dang, so should I just go with the ome md lift and then bilsteins for a little more lift? Or I might just get the RC lift and Bilsteins the. Save for the ome and toss the RC spacers
if your going to replace shocks and struts just go OME w/Bilstein's from the start. Or get the RC and when you have the $$ for the suspension lift install that, and sell the budget boost. It's your rig and there are a lot of different ways you can go. Each has its pluses and minuse. There's a lot of good information on here to help you chose what is best for you.
Well I was going to buy my bilsteins this Friday but I ended up having to take my german shepherd puppy to the vet this morning so that will delay the shocks/struts I'll post a pic of her when I get home! Shes my shotgun rider when my girlfriend is complaining haha
96 XJ, Regretfully sold :(
07 Silver WK, Flowmaster 40, RC 2", 265/70's on Moabs soon to be here :D
Here's the pup. I decided to buy the bilsteins probably Friday. I'm going on a cruise in November so I gotta save up 600$ for that too so build will be a little slow. Bilsteins by the end of this month then rc lift beginning of next month and tires around the end of August are my plans! They could Change tho, it's a jeep
