You may not have that issue but I do. Other then that it is well worth doing it. You will appreciate the better handling and looks.
I also have noticed a slight sag in the rear end develop over the past rear, I'm considering a small spacer to level it back out as well

UHB & KJ-

RANT COMING...DW stuck again this morning on the way to work. Same place on the road where it first occurred. 3 times in 10 days. After the PLK, LCA's and Monster TB installation, two alignments, 3 wheels rebalanced I still have the DW problem. (Hey at least the caster is right). Obviously something else is wrong. Tie rod ends, ball joints. Could it be bad OEM pizza tires (20K miles on them) triggering it?

Spoke with Adams Jeep...great reputation per Maryland Jeepers. It's where I should have gone in the first place for the lift work but it's a haul from my house. Dropping it off on Monday for the day to have them go over it.

Any other ideas?

Here's my 2 cents ...

Teraflex Performance Leveling Kit with Bilstein HD Shocks for 0-2" lift, and Steering Damper

285/70-17 Firestone Destination MT on Procomp 1069 w/4.75" backspace

I think it's a perfect combination. Smooth ride, improved handling, better control on forest roads .. Haven't done any heavy wheeling yet but speed bumps are no match!

This was a strippo Sport with steel wheels. I got a solid 2" in the front and 1" in the back.

Just found this thread. I just purchased this kit and now having second thoughts on installing after reading this thread. I have bumpers and a winch and was looking for a little lift and this seemed to be a good option, but after reading this I'm now having second thoughts.

Now if I do decide to use this is there any other items that are a must? One in particular is an adjustable track bar, should I get one? Adjustable CA's, are they necessary?

you won't need an adjustable track bar or control arms. You might want to add spacers from the get go to save redoing it a few weeks later when they sag. I liked how mine drove both on and off road but was disappointed in total lift after it settled and that was without any additional weight.

Your stance looks great.

How do you like the 1069s? I will be ordering a Billet JK Sport with Half Doors and want Duratrac 285/75/17. I want aftermarket wheels with the right back spacing for the tires. I like black wheels but I think it may be too much with the black fenders and just see so many black wheels. I have been looking at silver wheels and really like the 1069s but am worried they are too shiny. Don't want the chrome look. I thought about steel wheels but I've heard there could be problems with those.

THE RETURN OF THE DW!

No DW since I installed new factory 18" wheels and tires and went to Adams Jeep for an inspection.

As a refresher, installed TF Leveling Kit, Rancho 9000 shocks and SS, monster track bar, TF adjustable front and read arms and Grade 8 bolt kit. This is my DD with no offroading.

Took Jeep to original dealership for oil change and tire rotation (only 6K on this new tire and wheel set).

DW came back with a vengeance. Can't drive over 60mph...if I do and hit a bump, DW happens. Also happens at a lower speed but less frequently.

Going back to dealership and have a sit down with Service Manager.

No clue as to what's causing this now and why suddenly after a tire rotation. Have had no issues for 6 months.

TIA for any help.
Jeff
