I just bought this 2005 Grand last week with 21k miles on it. Little old lady traded it and a Mercury Mountaineer in after her Husband passed away recently. Never driven in snow...underside looks like the Jeep is brand new.
Looks like I am gonna do a 2" Lift. I am considering doing the OME HD. I only care to clear "31 inch tires" I realize I will be replacing with metric size. I just can't drive a stock Jeep even if its a Daily Driver. My wife got into mine last night and said it seems to low compared to her 2012 Grand Cherokee. My TJ has 6" and my Scrambler has 5.25" of lift so this does seem short to me too.
I am not new to Jeeps or lifting/modifying them and have always done all my own work. All models seem to have quirks or issues after lifting them. What is the realistic things I will need to do besides the install, alignment, lift kit, new tires etc.... Just trying to figure out how much this will take away from my Scrambler restoration I am doing right now.
