True at this point I would keep it because I love it. Yes they need to offer this for the SJ..models..Looks great..!
And yes, those mods will eat MPGs. I've not lifted my 2014 but still think about it a lot, but the roof basket and the AT tires did eat some MPGs for sure. It's a trade-off... but I'm happy! And you seem to be too!
@MarkMill Looks excellent!Lastly, 235/60/18 Falken will peak at trail fit before the lift and I loved it, made the car stock ride about 0.4 inches higher and I could feel it.
I haven't done any accounting for the wheels except I did notice it drop to around 23.5 when I added the tires. So yes the tires came first before the lift for about a week and that's what I noticed. So the lift isn't really impacting as much. However yes before the lift tires were sitting really close to the top with, not that much space but after the lift, I feel like I could go larger but in person, it doesn't look bad at all. These pictures actually make the disparity between how much space I have left worst. I don't want to go too heavy...only other option would be to decrease weight with aftermarket rims..which I don't really want to do. I would probably go 235/65/17 possibly but for right now I like the combo. Like I said looks better in person. In-person I can only see without bending down one coil in the front and barely one coil in the rear from the suspension.@MarkMill Looks excellent!
How much did you have to pay for the IronMan kit to be installed?
It looks like there is room for another 1" or 1.5" larger wheels/tires. 235/65/18 might work (overall 30 inches).
For the MPG numbers you are getting, did you take into account the larger diameter wheels you are currently running? So it might actually be slightly better than the 22 MPG from the console (emphasis on slightly). But the main mileage killer is the rotational mass of the heavier tires -- 10 lbs heavier each than stock.
@FozzieBalou Do you know why a suspension lift by itself drags down MPGs?
