How did you get the wheels to clear the calipers? Never heard of anyone getting anything less than the stock 17" rims on an XK.

They fit with no modification(the adapters are 1 3/8" spacers), but it was really tight so I took a grinder to the calipers. I used spidertrax adapters.

Hmmm...that could certainly open some wheel/tire combinations up. I honestly didn't think there was enough space to make it happen. Cool mod!!!

Which lift do you have on your Jeep?? That is exactly the look I am going for.

That seems to be a fairly basic kit. How do you use your jeep? Strictly on road or daily driver / weekend warrior?

I just installed the lift a few days ago. My wife drives that one. I hope to have it on some trails about once a month.
I installed an adjustable rear track bar and still need some sway bar end links/disconnects. I also replaced the strut mounts and rear spring isolators and bump stops.
