Just thinking if i go something similar on the 18s it might be too high for the garage (clearance is about 1.95m).
Stock 18's should (were on mine) 32" diameter tyres......285/70x17 are 33" dia. So, that should result in a lift of about 12mm.
Now, whether you actually get 33" depends on what you buy....BFG's, for example, are known to run a smaller diameter than the tyre size would leave you to believe.

Hi all,
Can anyone tell me what the ARCHM4X4 2" lift kit is like for quality for basic offroading. They can be found on Ebay

No bars as yet and no towing

They're cheap at the moment at $600, so it seems a little TOO good to be true.

Shocks will be too short unfortunately and will top out.

Am I just crazy or does my 2017 JK Sport have 18" wheels? I got an upgrade pack when I bought the Jeep and the tyres say 255/70R18, but everyone else seems to be talking about 17" rims? Heres a pic of the wheels (from the front - only photo I have!)

God, I'm not the brightest with cars!

The stock size has been 17" since around 2007, but 18" has come on the market recently. So yes, your 2017 has 18" rims, since the R18 means exactly that.

My '08 JKU came with 255/75R17, although most before & after were 245/75R17, since they changed the size, then changed it back again. At the moment I have 265/70R17 tyres on it, though as the 255 are about as rare as hens teeth!

Brilliant. That's what I thought. Now I need to find some decent 18" all terrain tyres.
