I don't know but I do know once you remove the springs we have you lose any lift advantage the 10A had and I believe 35's rub a little on 2.5 when disconnected.

I ran 35's on our stock suspension on road for a few weeks until I got the lift installed and I never rubbed but it was 100% around town road only.

I didn't want to have to replace fenders or trim them if I ever really flexed it out so I went 3". I would imagine that some 2.5 kits may actually get the same lift height I got on the mopar 3" but I didn't measure before and after or at least I didn't write it down in any convenient place if I did. Check the general lift sticky as it will be clear if 35's fit with a 2.5" lift on any other jku.

Foglights.... Going yellow???

What does everyone think about swapping the clears lens/bullbs for yellow ones??? I'm trying to figure out if it's an easy switch or what... Hopefully it's just a matter of popping a new a bulb or lens in. Thanks for all your help

Thank you for the review. I am still targeting this lift and my dealer will sell and install it for me for around $2,800 which I consider quite fair. I also am still spent between Pintler's and the RR wheels which you have. Interesting on the Teraflex as I hadn't heard that issue before. They also just released a new third brake light which allows for keeping it where it is stock when using the adjustable mount or hinge, or both, and has a CB mount where I want it. I recently mounted a Rigid SR-M mini light in the "plug" where an AEV tire carrier was meant to go so i'll keep with the Teraflex spare tire carrier plan! Post up on your Rausch Creek plans as perhaps some of us can meet up. I had a BLAST last year and would really like to return and just tool around or take the winch course. My skids took a beating on the 101 course, but myself (4dr), and two (2dr's) were the only Jeeps that day, and we did a couple of more aggressive trails which was really cool. The stock 10A did superb, but I would like some more LCA clearance, etc. Your set-up will be absolutely awesome at Rausch!

I rarely drive on the highway and I had an opportunity to do a few on ramps with some pretty tight turns and the jeep handled them WAY better then stock. Rutted dirt roads are also a joy to drive on fast and I've found pretty similar to that teraflex video where they show stock suspension vs prerunner kit. For my primarily daily driven jk this suspension on 35's is perfect for me. Granted my experience in lifted JKs is limited to this kit so take my opinion for what it's worth. I wanted enough lift to be able to flex out 35's, ride great on road where I spend most of my time, be very low maintenance, and barrel down some dirt roads I have around me. For the one trip to Rausch I will make a year I hope this suspension performs as well there.

My only complaint with the teraflex tire carrier is how difficult it is to open and close the gate now. It's really FIRM. my wife is funny as she will open it to put something in and then just leave it open because it's almost too stiff for her 100lb frame to close. I hope that loosens up a bit or maybe I'll call teraflex to see if they have a solution.

The Mopar lift gets criticized for its price but in my calculation you would pay slightly more for the same suspension with adjustable arms and the soeedbumps so I don't see where everyone gets on it for that. I wanted low maintenance arms and I don't plan on changing lift height so see no need for adjustability as long as the arms length has been tuned specifically for this application/kit.

So far I've researched my mods before purchase that I have zero regrets or would do anything differently. Taller would be even more difficult to hop up in, shorter and 35's may require trimmed fenders.

My next steps are brake upgrade and then a couple years or so of enjoyment before I'm willing to pay to play for forced induction. Mine is unabashedly not a full on trail rig but my goal was to make sure that it's fully capable of holding its own for the rare occasion I get out and so far I'd say its successful so far.

Are the fogs 6045 or 6145?
Got a fog build up in my 6045's. Have to replace.

Just installed the JW Speaker headlights, amazing. Installing the fog lights as soon as I receive the mounting bracket. If you need an amazing jeep guy, contact Nathan Woodruff in Northwest Arkansas. He has helped me with a number of modifications and is amazing excavation Mark

Hope you used the anti-flicker harness for the headlights, if not do it ASAP. I had mine go out in a month.

absolutely. I did a lot of research first, thanks to everyone on this forum the installation was a success. Wish I had a resource like this forum for all of my other projects. :-)

Does anyone have any tips on removing stock turn signals in the grille when the winch is already installed? I don't want to have to remove it.

Installed the Mopar mud guards. They really keep the sand and salt off the doors.

Are you trying to remove the lens also? I've pulled the top out some to reach in there and take the bulb out as well as from underneath.

Yes, I'm planning on completely switching them out with the Recon LED turn signals

Thought I'd share images of the new Maximus "Stinger" that I installed this weekend. This is now available at "introductory" pricing of $349.99, with final pricing to eventually be $369.99. You can choose either with or without the Maximus Stars accent. Give Joe a call at 248.821.6654. Click image for larger version

I only did the front mud guards and bought them off Amazon. They actually shipped from a Jeep dealer, don't remember which one.they were not expensive and easy to install.

When I switched mine I just did it from the side, turn the wheel all the way to one side and there's plenty of room to get them from the wheel well.

I'm getting the 10A front bumper, but without the winch cover plate. Anyone here installed the winch and want to sell me this for a decent price? Thanks!

Thought I would pass this along... not sure of the exact link (found it on Facebook), but there is a link called "ONE OF ONE MILLION" if you enter your VIN, it lets you know what number of 1,000,000 your Jeep's production number was. I am 994348. Thought you all might enjoy this.

The 1 millionth Was a 10a. Wonder if that lucky owner got anything special with the build?

The ESC light means the jeep is out of alignment, and it should be covered under warranty as mine was. It was a sensor reading things wrong after the jolt.

Click/clunk Noise. Some times I notice that if I hit the gas from a start, I hear a Click or Clunk sound from the rear. Almost like a lug nut being tightened at very end of the spring going clunk. Any ideas? I usually get it going from reverse to forward as soon as I hit the gas.
