Thread: Lift kit

    Look a KK is a very different vehicle to a TJ, XJ or JK, which is really where Wooders has his focus. Lifting a new model IFS Jeep has different issues and requirements to those of a SFA Jeep. It is a fact that there is little in the way of aftermarket equipment for the KK, some of this is because they are new and some of this is due to market demand or lack there of, from the buyers. There are some real restrictions on tyre sizes on the KK due to the large front air dam/bumper and its tyre clearance, and there is currently no front bar for these vehicles (other than a few people that have adapted the KJ TJM bar to fit the KK - and TJM do not make those any longer).

    If your looking for a workshop that will do the lift for you, and don't want to get involved in this yourself, then ARB and TJM are the obvious choices but be prepared to get only a 40mm lift from them. If you want to go up to 75mm then Murchison Products is the only organisation that I know of (in Australia) that does that. In the USA, JBA does have Coil Over kits for KK which will allow adjustable lift height, but you will find the cost higher than dealing with Stu.

    You might find the AJOR KK forum a good source of information on what can and can't be done to a KK.

    Cheers

    Yes agree, Wooders is a great place start at. May not have much/any KK products yet, but he will/does freely point you in the right direction at times to his own detterment regarding sales,but given time/demand who know's?............ Like I said, "A Great place to Start at".............. Stephen T.
