Hey! It has been a while since I have posted over here. I am considering picking up a new diesel Grand Cherokee Overland later this year or early next year.
If I do, I might hold on to the Commander and build it up a little to get a bit more clearance for off roading. I have done some moderate Arizona off roading with my XK, and I have to say thank goodness for skid plates.
I know a JK would be a better choice for off roading, but I don't want one someone else has already abused and I don't want any car payment.
I've been running that exact tire with stock wheels, 2" lift and 1.5" spyder tractor wheel spacers and the pinch weld mod. I don't know what the clearance issue would be if I didn't have the wheel spacers. But research here at the time said I needed wheel spacers. You may be able to get by with 1.25" wheel spacers.
I think I have pics in my album on my profile page.
I ran a set of these tyres I bought cheap that came off a JK. They fitted perfectly. I have no spacers just stock alloy rims (wheels) and an Old Man Emu 2" lift with Bilstien shocks front and rear.
The only issues I had was at the rear when going off road and with the rear sway bars disconnected I found that when on maximum flex and I mean max . eg only two wheels on the track and the car rocking, the rear tyres started to just catch on the lower edge of the outer lower guards. tyre PSI 20lb. The fronts tyres also just touched the plastic inner guards on full lock. I could have used a heat gun to make a mod to the inner guard to stop the front rubbing.
But be warned these tyres are too big to fit into your spare wheel space under the rear. That was the down size so I went back to 245/75R/17 GY Wrangler Silent Armours
Also any wheel spacers will just make the front tyres rub more. Don't use spacers or you'll have issues
Hi All...so I ran a JBA $1200 4inch lift for a while. After all the issues in the last couple of years I've called superlift and paid and put piece by piece together their lift (minus the rear, i got core 4x4 t3 control arms with the fuel tank bend). So I bought new Rancho RS-55826 struts, new...
Im looking at the compleet Super lift 4 inch kit for my 07 Overland Commander, I just got the truck and looking at what my option are cant seam to find much for lifts for them.
Anyone combine the Superlift 4 inch and the 2 inch spacer kit?????
Experiaces good or bad?
Is the angle on the CV'S...
I have just fitted a 2.5" rough country lift and now I'm getting a thumping sound from the front drivers side drive shaft under acceleration. I'm guessing it's worn and as it's at a different angle now it has brought this to light? My question is would replacing them sort the problem. Or...
I have to pull the half shaft from a 08 Commander. As seems to be pretty common the Clevis bolt is seized in the LCA bushing.
I am trying to confirm the part number of the bushing.
RockAuto lists the following:
