Thank You Rock Krawler!

I just wanted to say thanks for a great product. The install took me by my self about 8hrs. Alignment is perfect no ESP issues and just like everyone says ,it just drives better than stock.One more bonus is I think it also looks a little better than stock aswell.

Lookin' good!! What size tire are you running and are you using wheel spacers? I just finished my TF 2.5 BB and am wanting it to have the same stance/look as yours does.

They ballanced out very well and ride really quite and smooth!I also got a superchips flashpaq and to be honest with the 87 tune it is so close to stock it is pretty amazing.MPG has only droped by 1 from about 18 MPG to 17 thats mixed driving. Also just for refrance I have 3.73s and an auto

It rides a little more firm than stock I would say about 20% you do get more feedback from bumpsteer conditions AKA hitting holes with one wheel, but the shocks take over quickly and their is no wandering.On level bumps it feels really smooth. Driveline angles are not bad, I have not measured them but so far no driveline vibes up to 75mph.At that speed you do get a hint of the JKs lack of HP. But with my setup and being in good old flat florida that is not a problom even with overdrive on.

Very solid look! Thanks for the info on lift/tires/spacers/shocks. I think I speak for a lot of others when I say that we all want something that looks bad ass and functions bad ass, but that we can drive daily and perhaps most importantly afford.

No not yet the tech said everything was about middle spec but did not do a printout for me Its not bad at all just a little more harsh than stock. I dident want to tell everyone it rides like a cadi when it rides like a JK and IMO thats a good thing. Thanks for the imput something to verify

Nice looking JK. Nice work...


If you are finding the pot holes a little harsh, what tire pressure are you running? That will play a huge part in it... The JK won't have bump steer. The steering relationships are spot on....

same lift, same tires . Dropped the tire pressure to 23 and I laugh at bumps now. I should probably raise it a little though. Most seem to run 25 or so. Looks great

Typically we like to run a (2) psi tire pressure difference between the front and rear as well. Find a tire pressure you like for the front and then reduce the rear by 2 psi. It should make the rolling radii of the tires be equal!
