Potential Build For My 08 GC

Recommended Posts

I would also go with a moderate lift and 31" or 33" tires or something like that, then put the armor on.

 

That's a nice looking Grand... And I also drove a pumpking truck for 3 1/2 years before coming back in the Army.

 

 

Yeah I've bine driving for them for 3 years now trying to find me a decent local job. Don't have any complaints with schneider as of yet

Don't remmber exact tire size called rockyroad for 2.25 lift think it might around a 31" tire not sure though. Ill have to find the book I wrote it down on.

 

my recomendation would be do whatever budget lift will let you fit a 31" tire. probably the 2.25 will do it. get some good 31" ATs or mild MTs. then make sure you have some rock rails and t-case & gas tank skids. oh and front tow hooks and a receiver hitch in the back for a tow point. maybe a roof basket if you forsee the need for more space. mount a hi-lift to the factory rack or aftermarket basket and call it done. make it your expedition/camping/daily-driver. that's all you really need for 90% of "expeditions".

 

then later when you have funds and really start wanting something that can go on rougher trails, start keeping an eye out for a nicely modified TJ for a good deal and make that your trail/beater rig.

On a 2008 Grand Cherokee, you should be able to fit bigger than 31's with a 2.25" lift. I have 245/70R17's on my 2007 Commander (same suspension as an 2008 WK). These are 30.6" overall diameter. So, I am guessing you could fit at least 32's with that amount of lift.
