I have an 06 grand wk with a 2.5 inch rough country leveling kit, when I get new control arms and ball joints for that better reach, would I need that bolt to be longer for better reach? I might sound dumb but idk exactly what I need
For better leveling out with that control arm getting higher with this 2.5 lift.

Your 285/70/17 wont fit without the 1.5" wheel spacers? I'm looking to do the same size tire on my stock WK rim with the OME HD lift.

Well I have 265/70/17 wranglers that barely rub and would the 1.5" spacers be the only option for me or could I go 1" spacer with it.

Oops sorry man I wasn't replying to your question. I was asking the OP about his wheels. I'm not sure what you need. I'm still trying to figure it all out too. lol

For 285's you will definitely need wheel spacers. I went with 1.5" to make sure they were comfortably clearing the bolt...plus I like the look of tires sticking out hahah. For 265's some people have gotten away with no wheel spacers. Trial and error really.

New roof rack. Went with the Rage Stingray low profile roof basket. Sealed the rack where the 2 pieces meet with black RTV silicone. Mounted 2 Hella 500ff's with black stone guards. Should get them wired up this weekend when I have time.

Probably just through the door seams straight to the engine bay, just like the way I wired the ones behind the grill. I don't wanna mess with the firewall.

Nope, haven't had time. Actually haven't even had time to wire up the roof lights yet.

Almost got stuck this weekend in really deep mud. Turned ESP off and powered right out and up the hill. Sucks not having 4low
