Willy's Wheeler with Rough Country Lift

I missed my 2007 Unlimited Wrangler so I had to order a 2014 Willy's Wheeler. I again went with the Rough Country 6" X Series Suspension Lift. No doubt you get a lot of bang for the buck. As a novice mechanic, I was able to install the lift, steering stabilizer, and driveshafts in a weekend. Also, added the Moto Metal M0962 (20x12) and 38x15.5x20 Toyo Open Country MT's. It is a tight fit but no rubbing. After selling the stock wheels/tires and other extra parts, I am sitting at a net of just over $3k for the changes. Money well spent...

Be ready to spend more on an axle housing when you bend the C's as well as ball joints, probably axle shafts, and the RC joints and bushings will not hold up long. But if your cruising the mall and careful around speed bumps you might be OK.

Dammit don't confuse him. He just got his little whore jeep back from being finger banged at the dealer for far too long.

lmfao. Indeed!

Just moved it. Didn't read thru the post to see that it was a JK "upgrade". You kids and your fancy option packages.
