Teraflex having a 2 AND 4 door coil is going to be closer to advertised height.
Their 2.5" coils are 3.1" front and 2.1" rear.

At 2.5" the axle is usually shifted over 3/8"

I like the added strength a aftermarket gives you and I installed one with my 2.5"

3-4" is a must IMO

1. what's the advertised lift? 2.5" or 3.0". 3". On the phone TF said 3.5"+ based on a 2 door softie with stock bumper.

2. what's that actual lift? 2.5" or 3.0". 3.5" to start. Once I added a mid-width bumper and winch I settled to 3".

3. did you add an adjustable track bar? Yes. Poly Performance up front. Relocation bracket came on the rear. Also added a relocation bracket upfront because I have a tendency to run into large rocks. Head on. You can do either/or-both are not a necessity.
You can always add an adjustable track bar or relo. bracket later if you need it. I tracked straight on the road right out the gate- but I didn't like that I wasn't centered on the axle.

Skip to 12 minutes. Not me- but a fun spot. I'm next- though you only see a little flex at this point. Like I said- I don't get as much "flex appeal" with limit straps but I'd rather not break anything. Rear shock skids- and then drive shafts are next on the list. Then I am done. Really.

Agree 100% .. this is where I get heartburn.

Why an adjustable TF track bar with the Mopar 2.0 2" kit .. but is deleted from Mopar 3.0 3" kit?

MOPAR® Performance 2" Lift Kit with Fox Shocks
For 12-13 Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited JK 4 Door
Quadratec Part No: 16170.1011
Manufacturer Part No: P5156116

Fits These Vehicles
12-13 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4-Door (JK)

Whether it’s Moab, the Baja or your daily commute, Mopar enhances your JK’s capabilities, ride comfort and control. The 2” lift is ideal for 33” diameter tires, but will clear most 35s. The 3” and 4” lifts are best suited for 35” tires. All lifts feature coil springs with wheelbase-specific load ratings for 2 and 4-door JKs. This kit features the new FOX Racing Shox 2.0 Performance Series IFP shock. Its brushed aluminum shock body dissipates heat faster than conventional steel, and combines with other race-inspired technology to provide incredible fade-free performance, precise handling and stability. FOX’s hard chrome plated heat treated shock shaft and redundant sealing system does not require a dust boot.

The 3" and 4" lifts are 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 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).

Thanks... pretty much answers a lot of questions for those looking at the Mopar Stage 3 - 3.0" suspension lift.

Plan on adding to the cost an adjustable track bar ... just like kjeeper10 said, should be required.

I know I wouldn't run without it ...

By the way- did you see this thread? Mostly pics. I have some of my install as well but mostly the rear end only.
http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/mop...-145335-3.html
And FYI- the Foxies take a little while to settle in/seat. They'll be pretty firm at first so give it a hundred miles or so. Or just find a good trail with lots of articulation to play on.

Got a question for those who have lifted already, just found out a few of us have the following rear springs 68024461AA. From what I can tell the correct rear spring should be 68196009AA. Did any of you have the 68024461AA springs?
Next set of questions...
1) Is there a real difference between 68024461AA and 68196009AA springs?
2) Would this have anything to do with having the max tow package?
3) Would it be worth having the dealer order and install 68196009AA springs if they are in fact the ones that should have been installed on my 10A?
Thanks.

I am curious about the spring length of the actual springs while installed on a stock 10A.

My 09 JKUR with a 2" Mopar (Jeep came that way) lift are 13" in the front. Compared to a stock 13 JKUR and stock Sahara are both at 11" in the front. I am waiting on my 10A-JKUR to arrive. It is on a train/truck somewhere. I can surely believe some are getting the wrong springs, especially later builds or even vice versus due to supply issues. Measuring length on the Jeep would help to figure out if we are getting shorted.

Did you try Online Tire?
Onlinetires.com - Lowest Tire Prices on the Web. Period!
Not sure how they compare with shipping. I picked up mine. I don't see KM2s right now- but I bought mine there. They're really helpful so it might be worth a call. They'll price match too.
They have MTRs right now which is odd because they're on back order too. But their warehouse is HUGE. There is a national rebate right now. I like my MTRs a little better actually- they're smoother and quieter on the road. They also don't have that "round" look that the KM2 has. Great on the trail. Plus they tend to run "true" to size- KM2s are on the small side. But the KM2s were good too- not talking night and day here.

I opted for the Teraflex 2.5" coil spring lift with the Bilstein shock upgrade sold as a kit from Northridge4x4.com The kit is $800. I added on the AEV geometry correction bracket and both the front Teraflex Monster HD adjustable track bar and the rear Teraflex adjustable track bar. Also added the Teraflex exhaust spacers. Total cost around $1350. About 1000 bucks less than that Mopar kit. You can see the before and after shots of my 10A at http://retube.co/jkur

With your old springs and shocks, I am sitting at 45 3/4 where your measurement of 47 is. Im pretty happy with that. It will probably drop a half inch when I get bumpers on it.

I'd also love to know if there's anyone out there with a 10A, no lift and 33s (or 285/70/17) on stock wheels? Any rubbing issues when disconnected? Wheel spacers needed?
