I paid $195 total, so I'm not sure if their prices went up or not

You notice any rubbing on the pinch welds with 1" spacers? I run a 1/4" spacer right now and I have none, I ran a 1.5" and rubbed pulling in and out of parking spots.

My 245\70s aren't even close to rubbing the pinch weld...once I get my lift installed I night get 265/70s, and I'm not even sure if they'll rub bc I have at least an inch clearance on the pinch weld now

had a local shop (Mount Zion Offroad) install my Rock Krawler lift with my 245/70/17 Firestone Destination ATs:





then I got some 265/70/17 Falken WildPeak ATs following a discussion with Omelet





sorry for the blurry pics...will have to take new ones tomorrow

so here are my measurements:

axle to wheel well with strut spacers and 245/70s: 19.5" front; 19.25" rear
ground to wheel well with strut spacers and 245/70s: 34" front, 33.5" rear

axle to wheel well with strut spacers, RK lift w/extra spring isolator in rear and 245/70s: 22.5" front; 21.75" rear
ground to wheel well with strut spacers, RK lift w/extra spring isolator in rear and 245/70s: 36.75" front, 36" rear

axle to wheel well with strut spacers, RK lift w/extra spring isolator in rear and 265/70s: 22.75" front; 22" rear
ground to wheel well with strut spacers, RK lift w/extra spring isolator in rear and 265/70s: 37.75" front, 36.75" rear

so with the Rock Krawler lift and bigger tires I gained an even 3.25" clearance in the front and rear!

so i went out in search of some public unmaintained roads that might be fun to drive, but failed to find anything more exciting than decently maintained gravel roads but did find one spot for pics better than my driveway and one dirt mound to climb

Looks like strip mines around here. Would be great places to ride but everything is government off limits areas. Great pics though

The lift and tires look great. I think those WP's will be my new tire next year. Let us know how you end up liking those after getting a few miles on them.
