Went back and read the original post, this kit does come with the exhaust spacers so ignore my question.

answer to your question is, yes, your factory warranty will not cover the OEM parts that are removed, and now replaced with parts from this MOPAR lift kit. The lift kit did not come with your vehicle from the factory, and thus will not be covered by your manufacturer's warranty. The lift is covered by a separate warranty, and only for the lift kit parts, not any consequential damaged caused to your vehicles transmission or suspension.

Has anyone tried to run 37s with this lift?
Seems like you would have to go with flat fenders, right?

Since the stage 3 lift doesn't come with an adjustable front track bar, that was my first purchase for the stage 3. The 37's rubbed but only when turning right. That problem cleared right up when I got the front axle centered.

So my experience with the Mopar state 3 is that it's a great lift for 35's if you can justify the cost of the speed bumps. Here in the desert, they flat out work great! With flat fenders, an adjustable front track bar, and some Sawzall love, you can fit 37s without extended bump stops, and the lift works great off road as you can see from some other folks pix in this thread.

Poser on 37s...
Just what I was looking for...Thanks!

I wonder if the SpeedBumps in this kit come with the extension rings that are shown in the teraflex videos for them.
I kind of doubt it, since this is a kit and it's setup for 35s.
Wouldn't it help with 37s to be able to extend the SpeedBumps down an inch or so?

This thread was definitely my inspiration; I switched from a stage 2 to a stage 3 after looking at the added benefits and that was the best additional $1,000 I could have spent in my mind.

Looks great! Love black but after years of trying to keep black vehicles clean I went silver.'Course silver still can look dirty....since you guys are all posting poser pics.....
My Off Road Evo tranny skid hits my exhaust with the spacers. Spaced it (the skid) and wrapped the exhaust. Works but everytime I wheel it rattles again. I high centered pretty good and now the skid is actually bent in a little- constant rattle now. Dynomax may have a fix but have to look into it. http://www.dynomax.com/assets/newpro...88347_Sell.pdf
(Note: only an issue with 2 doors).

Very nice; yes Black is a pain but it isn't like a black sports car - it is okay to be dirty most of the time in my mind.

That silver looks great and if they had that color in 2014, I'd be driving one. Why did you put the reservoir on the frame and not the main shock body?

"Quick Overview

**Available Exclusively through Mopar**

Whether its Moab, the Baja or your daily commute, Mopar enhances your JK’s capabilities, ride comfort and control. The 3” lift is best suited for 35” tires. All lifts feature coil springs with wheelbase-specific load ratings for 2 and 4-door JKs.

Co-developed with FOX and TeraFlex, the Stage 3 Lift utilizes an external remote reservoir version of the FOX 2.0 Performance Series shock for even greater heat dissipation. The shocks, in combination with the Mopar / TeraFlex SpeedBump System (used on the front axle), provide exceptional performance at speed. Additionally, this system includes all four rear axle-to-frame link arms, and the front / lower link arms for ideal driveline geometry and front end alignment (no realignment required)."

Front

I think most people do not buy it because it is made by teraflex and you can get the Teraflex kit at less then half the price. That is what I did.

I just went to my local 4x4 shop and asked them for the the same lift that comes in the mopar box. For the price that guy paid for the installation and lift, I got installation, lift, tire carrier, new hood latches, AEV computer to compesate for the larger tires and 35" tires. And yes that included the Fox shocks.

the stage three lift is only a little over $2,400 depending on where you buy it. Your telling me you got the same kit including speed bumps and the fox shocks with reservoirs for $1,200? That is an incredible deal and hard to believe

I got the same kit for $1000. The Fox shocks were extra.The shocks were $520, so I paid $1520 for the same kit.

Wow where do I get this for 1500?
I would buy it right this second. Any referral would be great!

Could be anything. Loose bolt/bushing, shocks or sway bar links. Etc etc etc.

I have a small 1-2" frankenlift lift but yeah, no matter what whenever I go out on a trail, disconnected, my wrangler squeeks during any flex at all. And I do regular trails, no real crawling.

As soon as I reconnect sway, no more squeeking.

Have you re-lubbed upfront? This took care of my squeaking for awhile. But if all else fails- Jeeps in general can be a little squeaky. Riding on a trail sometimes sounds like you're in a cheap hotel room. Brand of lift/shocks doesn't matter.
Not saying there isn't anything wrong- but if you've taken a good hard look at everything I wouldn't stay up at night worrying about it. Especially if you're in a cheap hotel.

I have not re-lubber anything. I did not see any grease fittings. can you be more specifics on the location you mean because I'm sure that would solve the issue.

And I agree, I expected some squeaking so I'm just trying to make sure I'm not ignoring a potential problem (ie ignoring squeaking from brakes)
