My new XK with what lift?

Recently bought 2010 that has a lift. I would like to know what lift/size?

Currently it has 265/65/17's. No rubbing at all (no rub marks either), no spacers, stock wheels.



Here is the jeep with 265/70/17's from my 2001 WJ.



With the 265/70/17's, I could turn full lock with no rubbing. I only checked the driver side, and I wasn't backing up or driving forward.

Here are some more pics:




Thanks for the help. I am wanting to run 275/65/18's. I know I will have to do the pinch weld mod, but would like to know if anything else would be needed to run those.

@Matt
I remembered reading on another thread that you had that same size tires. (I was going to message you once I found it again). I was thinking of running an 18x8.5 with a +15 offset and Nitto Terra Grapplers (275/65/18).

@matt where did you have to trim once you installed the 275/65/18's?

Its very dependent on wheel backspacing. I did a very good job with the pinchweld and am running a modified OME HD lift for more clearance.
