    hey guys,

    ive heard the stock ride height of a KJ is 19" from center of hub to bottom of fender flare. Is this the same for the KK?

    I just went out and measured and mine are as follows:

    DF - 21 1/8
    DR - 22 3/8
    PF - 21 3/8
    PR - 22 1/2

    it leans to driver side a bit because of the gas tank + skid plate id guess

    I have the 3.5" econo lift from JBA when they sold it, so i have a top plate and clevis spacer and OME 927. It seems like the front has sagged a bit? Mind you, I have full skid plate package, ATH front bumper, and Warn XD9000i.

    The back is a bit higher than usual because I have the Monroe load-lever shocks without my new rear bumper (comes in a week or two, super excited!). Thanks for that suggestion Tom, those work great!

    The KK sits lower than the KJ from the factory. The beginning heights are: 18” in front and 19” in back. So you’re not as sagged as you think. The drivers side lean thing seems to be par for the course regardless of whether a KK is lifted or not. Mine does it. I think you’re right about the extra weight of the gas tank and driver.

    Where did you get a rear bumper from? Is ATH making them again?

    oh ok, 18 front makes more sense then. 3-3.5 is about what i was going for

    I wish!! i asked him about it before and he said no :(
    its from WAM. i heard they tried and made a shitty front bumper (KJ i think)

    it looks decent, way better than the stupid hitchgate thing i have now. If anyone wants it let me know :p

    this is from their site

    The WAM rear bumper looks really nice. I agree the KJ front bumper doesn’t! There is no KK front bumper offered on their site. I wonder if they’ve ceded that part of the market to ATH!
