RattleDogUSA Buy the Jeep you want, then suck up your pride and buy a $3000 beater car for work. Better mileage probably, and cheaper than trying to go crazy custom on your Jeep and not have to compromise.

Spinner What about adjustable oil spacers from JKS? Not sure if they will do the job, but worth investigating.

onetraveller ORO (see above link) has a complete kit for the JK. You will need deep pockets!!!!!! $6,595, not including installation.

Moabrubi You mean like this? For TJ's but it's the basic idea.

Welcome to the new home of Off Road Only!

I have seen one in person and it is interesting to say the least. I wouldn't run it though.

army vet Did you measure the clearance or are you going by a posted sign? You might want to actually measure it, walk through it with a tape measure. You’ll be surprised how much of a cushion garages and county DOT usually gives themselves.

onetraveller Height adjustable suspensions are available and have been around for over 25 years. They are standard equipment on Range Rovers and an option on the Jeep Grand Cherokee. The first one I owned was an '88 Lincoln Mk VII LSC.

The adjustments are accomplished by using air springs instead of metal coil springs and a computer controlled set of valves and a compressor. After market kits are available, although I haven't seen one on a Wrangler. The ones I'm familiar with have an adjustment range of 3 to 6 inches.

You are definitely looking at several thousand dollars to have one customized and fitted to your vehicle.

Check out ridetech.com or airbagit.com for some ideas on what is available commercially.

MTH No idea. I can say those are going to be very rare in the jeep world, and if feasible, very expensive and likely very prone to failure. I'd expect it'd be more practical to mod your roof rack system to make it removable for when you're not using it. JMHO.

Height-Adjustable Suspension for Rubicon

Hi guys, I don't know anything about height-adjustable suspensions so I'm sorry if this is a dumb questions however, I'm getting my 13' Rubicon Unlimited within the next week the downer is that I want to get the Gobi roof rack system and unfortunately I work downtown and park underground, the stock Jeep is only 2'' short of the height restriction so I could take it off durring the week... or get a height-adjustable suspension... or pay several hundered more a month for a bigger parkade . Just wondering if a height-adjustable suspension is feasible, and if anyone has any suggestions/input I would appreciate it, thanks in advance!
