It's not easy to reach the actuator, but on most DC/ FCA vehicles it's doable. You'll need a special shorty screwdriver (less than $5 at lots of stores).

For a lot of vehicles, the FSM will say...

Factory wheels? Do you think when pointed straight ahead those 245s will hit the factory flares?

Good thinking, that looks like it may work. 3.7L engine and 42RLE tranny.

My initial thought was to look at Jeeps with the 42RLE, but my search also led to Dakota sticks, 53032609AA, if I...

Yes, if you still have the original factory bumpstops, then skinny 30s are a great fit on factory wheels.

For added assurance, measure your suspension uptravel. That will allow you to see there's...

Wow, time flies! 7 years since I installed a 1.25" lift inspired by this thread - still loving the combination of 5.25" uptravel, soft at ride height, yet lots of dual-rate support for offroading,...

I guess the one thing I've never been able to figure out about this thread is what was the mileage on the strut? Was it 60k miles? More? Less?

We'll have to take a poll on that one:

(1) Does he actually believe that ? or
(2) Does he think we'll be fooled by that ?

Feel free to answer (2) without having to proffer a theory about why...

I can remember the tallest sizes, but sub'd to consider a slightly smaller spare

Well said - a lot of people in here conflate grabbing the flares with rubbing the fender - the latter would be bad, the former can be avoided by changing the flares

245/65R17 is commonly done on stock wheels - it's close to the spring perch, so that's why I'm unsure of 235/70R17 - the lift kit gives you plenty of fenderwell clearance

Good thinking, but you're pushing it right to the limit. The limiting factor on stock wheels is the spring perch. Via the internet I've seen people running 29.5" tires, but I'm not sure if there's...

Are you running a Currie Anti-Rock? You don't need much fender clearance for 32s. Either 1" of body lift or 1" of bumpstop extension.

The main reason for running 4" of lift with 33s is to avoid...

Extend your Mopar factory Maxcare coverage asap. As frustrating as this is, you don't want to start paying them by the hour.

Ok, I'll be the contrarian and say that I think a JK is basically a TJ with a mid-arm kit installed from the factory, but add 100HP - it was available w/o PDL or PW

If you want a long-stroke...

I think the Teraflex fixed-length arms have the shortest amount of increase in length, so they'll be the best simple choice for a smaller lift, and they get great reviews for fixing that twitchiness...
