WJ Lift/Tire Submission Thread

The last thread started by ArloGuthroJeep got out of hand and is too far gone to bother cleaning it up. I am currently sifting through all 1,500+ posts of that thread and am using the posts that followed the rules for some FAQ threads.

Since the first thread is a mess, we're starting a new one that can be easily monitored. The rules will be the same as last time. If a post doesn't follow the rules, it will be deleted without question. If all criteria is met, the pictures/information will be considered for the FAQ threads.

Picture Details

Three specific pictures are ideal. More are allowed.

1) Profile picture (on level ground)
2) Head on picture (on level ground)
3) Flexed picture

Feel free to submit duplicates of a lift/tire combo. All will be considered.

Requirements

1) Photos
2) Full lift specs (name of lift and the EXACT components installed)
3) Tire/Wheel combo used.
4) Any "non-standard" mods (such as trimming (how much), excessive bump stops, etc...)

We will evaluate and move posts as they are submitted.

Thanks!


Edit (2/13/15):

Per request, here are the links to the picture threads. These links can also be found in the FAQ.

EXAMPLE

Lift: OME HD Springs, Bilstein 5100 Shocks, JKS Adjustable Track Bar, Zone Extended Rear End Links, Rancho Steering Stabilizer, New Spring Isolators, IRO Front Upper Coil Spring Retainers

Wheels: OEM Silverblade #1 with 1.5" Rough Country Wheel Spacers

Tires: 245/75R16 Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

Additional Information: Minimal front fascia trimming was needed to eliminate rubbing while turning/backing. Flexing while disconnected will require a little more front fascia trimming.







The following two flex pictures were taken with the sway bars connected.

@acgenrich6777 , @JohnnyBertone , and @Wjadam - When I moved your posts, I missed clicking a box causing your pictures to vacate the premises.

Will you please edit your posts here and add your pictures again?

Sorry about that!

Chris

This is my 04 overland with upcountry springs, 2 inch spacers, 1.5 inch wheel spacers, wrangler takeoffs with 265/70/17 bfg rugged terrains. It trimmed the front bumper, and have very minor rubbing in the rear when flexing.

Thanks, I never started a build thread on my 2000 WJ. Just a work in progress. Actually I did most of it all at once. I guess I had about $10,000 in a tax return to go towards it. it was money well spent. I actually sold my 2000 and missed it so much I Just purchased a 99 WJ and am starting to build it up. This one will go much slower. I don't have the funds to do all the work at once. I loved how my last one came out I am going to try to duplicate it. One thing I found out is RK doesn't make lifts for the WJ anymore. So I had to switch to the Clayton LA 6" and I am in the process of adding 2" spacers. I liked the Irok Radials so I am working on getting them to fit with only trimming the bumpers and maybe the the area right behind the front tires. I am going with the Atlas again with 4.3:1 low. I have the V8 with the D44a rear. I have trussed the rear. I just need to add stronger axles, lockers, and gears. Like I said, work in progress. I will start a build thread somewhere. Is there a place to start a build thread on this forum?

Yea you can put it under either the WJ Grand Cherokee sub-forum, or the GRand Cherokee, there is even a Build Thread sub-forum under one of the categories, but I'm brainfarting can't remember what it is under....lol
You can't go wrong with Clayton products, very nicely made! And the Atlas is a beast!
Building them is half the fun! Then go get muddy and watch your work pay off....lol

Very nice......photos look weird though.....just a bit too perfect.....almost like stills from an animation!! Prob just the effect of your camera.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got yourself an electrical problem!
