Call me crazy, but I’m doing something that has been done but most DS owners don’t do. I bought a set of Eibach “lift” springs and new 275/45R20 Atturo Trailblade tires. I’ll Take it into the shop tomorrow to have the springs fitted and the tires should be mounted by the end of the week. I’ll post Up impressions and photos with the results.

Here’s Disco Steve as he sits now.

Looking forward to seeing how it comes out!

I have the 286hp, which has the larger rotors up front, so I’ve been hesitant to go with a smaller wheel…

I just got rid of my 2015 with the spring kit and 19" Atturo Trailblades. I now have a 2017 with 20" rims and looking to add the Trailblades again. I loved the tires and would like them again, but I can't do the lift because I have the dynamic suspension package. I'd be curious about your opinion of the fit after you have yours installed. Here is my new ride. I just got it yesterday.

Same here. Bigger rotors up front and the dynamic suspension. Was hoping there was some option for me, but not sure. So far I’ve been lucky enough not to bottom out on any rocks in the Sierras, but having those 20’s (and the dynamic) is just brutal on anything larger than pea gravel.

I know the offroad experience was much improved with a slightly larger tire on my last disco, so I am hoping for the same in this case. The ride on the new truck is noticeably stiffer. I have been looking at size options and I think I have settled on 265/50/20. Unfortunately, I cannot get Trailblades, which were awesome, so I am looking at Cooper Rugged Treks or Nitto Grappler G2s. They seem to have the right mix of on and off-road ability. I should be pulling the trigger on the purchase in the next couple of weeks, I'll keep you posted on the results.

My local shop has been slammed with work but Disco Steve made it on to the lift past Friday. They got the the back springs done but They just ran out of time For the day. Should get him back Monday.

Disco Steve is officially lifted.
I netted a 2” gain. Love it! Looks better and rides better! This is a fantastic bang for the buck mod as long as you don’t get ripped off by a shop on the labor to install. It should be a reasonable charge. The springs themselves are a bargain IMO.

Sorry for the change in topic but does Disco Steve have a panoramic roof? I have a 2016 Sport w/pano and am struggling to locate a roof rack to fit. Ultimately seeking to mount a Roam rooftop tent as well. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Yes Disc Steve has a pano roof. You can get load bars like I have and mount a RTT. I would recommend 3 load bars as 2 is pushing the limit. I believe the Frontrunner rack fits the pano roofs and they will easily accommodate a RTT.
