Going with a 4" Lift....

Hey everyone -

I am running a 2012 Rubi 2dr (limited, I guess).

I have a Teraflex 2.5 lift with TF shocks and 35x1250s.

Looking to upgrade to a 4". I am asking about the best lift/value option you have encountered....I know there are a lot out there with myriad prices.

ALSO - I know driveline mods will be needed...but anything else I need to be prepared for?

Any help appreciated.

Thanks

Scott

Oh wow....are those 35s!!?? I guess the fenders make it look taller too...mine are still stock.

Besides the lift (and exhaust spacers) what did you have to do?

Nah man I appreciate it. I am just thinking that 4" might be too much for me. I am at 2.5" now (with JKU springs in a 2dr) but I didn't think that extra 1.5" would be THAT different. Look at this pic of my rig....just seems really "low" IMO.

RK 2.5 coils out me 3.5-4" and caused alot of issues.
Eventually did a front shaft and recently highsteer.
By spring I should have all 8 mid arms installed

Best advice. Do it all at once or prepare for problems.

I need new pics
