    Grand Things to Come - 2018 WK2 Grand Cherokee Hemi 4x4 Build

    In anticipation of some light off road wheeling, in Ouray, CO, we are going to do a few modifications to our 2018 Grand Cherokee Sterling Edition 4x4.

    Wheels and tires are here. Thanks to Clayton at Discount Tire Direct. American Outlaw Armor wheels in Liquid Chrome, 5x127, 18x8.5 with +10 offset (5.14” back space). Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac, 265/65r18.

    Stock back spacing is around 6.7 inches. I have the HD brake package, so caliper clearance is also a concern. Tire selection, and brake clearance is why I went with 18 inch wheels. Idk why Jeep sells a 4x4 with 20 inch wheels.

    I’ll be replacing the stock 265/50r20 wheels and tires, in the morning. Stock tires are 30.4 inches. The new setup is 31.6.

    If she rubs, I’ll do a small lift. I may do it anyway, lol.

    I’m thinking of a Rocky Road Outfitters leveling kit, if it rubs. Hell, I’d like to lift it a little, anyway.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
