hey all, I just purchased a 2005 WK and I have been looking for some pictures of some lifted rigs. I also have a 2005 TJ and found ENDLESS amounts of information that helped me in deciding what to do to that rig.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Try this link. Both lifted and stock Grand Cherokees are posted, so you'll have to wade through all the pages to find what you want.
what size lift and tires are on yours? Mine is exactly like yours, just stoick.

2" lift, 265/70-17 Mickey Thompson tires...
If you want to fit that tire size with the 2" lift, and you want to keep your stock rims, you're going to have to use some wheel spacers and more than likely have to cut the bolt on the upper arm of the suspension. The technical name of which eludes me right now. This thing:
Also, check out this thread on the "other" Jeep WK forum.

Thanks, I still like yours the best Texas WJ. I am looking for something suttle, not too aggressive. Did you have any complications other than cutting that bolt? I know I had a few unmentioned issues when I lifted my TJ. Nothing too complicated, just some things I would have liked to know before I started.
Did you have to use wheel spacers? I notice that you are running JK wheels. Do oyu know if they would be needed for my stockers???
