RK 5.5 x factor plus w/coilover questions

Alright its time for lift as i just sent the last payment out for the jeep today. I will run 37's and may some day go to a D60 but for now a beefed front 44 is in the works. I know i can get 37's on with the 3.5 kit and the same with the 5.5 other than 400 bones msrp difference and having to get driveshafts which i planned on doing anyway as well as an extra inch of travel. My only question is what is he overall height of the jeep with the 5.5 and 37's? I need it to fit in the garage. I know there are LCG concerns for some people with a lift that tall. But who knows 40's could be somewhere down the road for me if I do the 5.5

any help would be great.

May not be exact because my jeep is sitting on gravel but I got 6'8" with a soft top. Hope that helps

07 black unlimited. 5.5" rock krawler x factor long arm. Pro comp soft 8s, 37" nitto mud grapplers. Kilby front winch bumper. Warn xd9000i. OrFab rear bumper. Much more to come in the near future.

I talked to someone on here to be unamed about shops and he did mention lizard but I just kinda got the impression he wasn't as excited about recommending them as much as others, said they do real good work but maybe not as much personalized attention to each customer as other shops. I would drive the extra 3 hours if I'm going to get a shop that is going to work with me and not just treat it as another sale and I kinda get the impression that atomic will take good care of their customers. SOLD.

"CAIN" fit with the RK 5.5 coil overs and 39" pitbull maddogs with 1 inch to spare.

it wont now since things are changing but your plan will work.

remember with coil-overs you can adjust for ride height as well as travel up and down.

mine set lower than TexKev since we tuned it to ride lower. His sat up a bit higher but had more uptravel
