Thumbs up 2.5" rc spacer kit

This kit was the only way i was going to do a spacer kit ALL STEEL ! Me and my dad installed this kit in the garage in 2 hours and 15 minutes using the scissor jack 2 jack stands and a ratchet with 4 sockets. So far it is everything i expected . Would recommend this product if a budget lift is what you are looking for . Actually only got about 2" overall and the kit is 2.5 in the front and 2 in the rear for a more level stance although i liked it the way it was . All that said heres a pic .Name:  before.jpg

LIFT:

Rough Country X Series 4" Suspension Lift $1199.00 complete
Front: Lifted coil springs, upper and lower adjustable control arms with X-Flex joints, adjustable track bar, quick disconnects, and stainless steel brake lines.

Rear: Lifted coils springs, upper and lower adjustable control arms with X-Flex joints, track bar drop bracket, sway bar links, and stainless steel brake lines.

SHOCKS: (4) Rough Country Performance 2.2 series shocks included with lift kt. Dual Rough Country Steering Stabilizers

SYE/CVD: Tom Woods 499.00/ea - being a 2DR lifted over the 2.5" threshold it was necessary

TIRES/WHEELS: 5x 35" Dick Cepak Mud Country @ 304.00/ea mated to 5x 17x9" Mickey Thompson Classic II Aluminum Rims (replaced the Rubicon 32" BF Goodrich Muds, coupled with 5x Mopar Black Aluminum Rims)

OTHER: 5.13 "purple" gears @ 800 per axle installed, ARB Iron Differential Covers (180/ea), Skid plates (oil pan, evap canister, gas tank, transfer case), River Raider breather kit (49.00), AEV Snorkel with Ram Air (349.00), Bushwacker Flat Fenders (599.00)

EXISTING: Mopar front winch bumper with fog lamps and crush cans, Mopar rear bumper, Mopar swing away tire carrier with HiJack Mount, 12.5k winch, KC Highlighter 400k x 2, D hooks and mounts front and rear x 5

Likes: It looks like it should have always, coming from the factory. Well balanced look, professional install courtesy of Steve at Jeep Home Steves Jeep Country - Epsom NH // The ride is a little more top heavy feeling due to the raised CG, stiffer than stock but no unacceptable. On the highway the tires hum but not like I remember mud tires from my past by any stretch. The 5.13 gears breathed new life into this motor, even coming from 4.10's with 32's. Plenty of usable power through the power band, 2850 rpm indicated @ 65mph in 6th gear) First gear has more legs now, so you can actually start off in it instead of 2nd all the time.

I used an AEV Procal (150.00) to calibrate the gears and tire change. Yes, do not just punch in the tire size, it will not yield an accurate result (ie 35" Mud Country tires are actually 33.75 inches tall). Gas mileage changed imperceptibly, though it's still early. In any event I highly recommend the Procal - remembering the skid control, ESC, ABS and everything else keys off the speed of the vehicle - if the speedometer is inaccurate, everything else will be also.

Dis-Likes: I'm old - the 6" increase in ride height, coupled with an unyielding roll bar means this gorilla (6'5") has to learn a new way of entering and exiting

Would You Recommend: Absolutely! and I would recommend consulting someone who does this work for a living also, Iearned a few new things along the way that led to a solid, stable platform. (Thanks Steve).

Look for the buildup by following this link ---> http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/the...-on-78914.html ... plenty of pics before and after

Now time to figure out how to pay for it

AEV 4.5" Premium

2008 Jeep Unlimited
System: 4.5" AEV Premium
Shocks: Rancho RS9000xl
Driveshafts: Tom Wood's 1310's front & rear
Add'l: Teraflex Monster Arms, 37/13.5R17 Nitto Mud Grapplers, TeraFlex Disconnects...

Likes: Excellent on-road ride. Very stable at highway speads. Corners much better than stock. Firm ride w/out harshness.

Dislikes: Limited flex, but this may be a result of short shocks and not the AEV system.

I would recommend this system to Jeepers who spend more than 50% of your time on-road. I get out wheeling 3+ times a month and enjoy the set up I have. I will be working on the flexibility, but the ride is spot on.

SHOCKS: Rubicon Express from the kit

SYE/CVD: stock

TIRES/WHEELS:
Unfortunatley still stock!

Poly Performance front adjustable track bar, Teraflex rear axle mounting track bar relocation bracket, Poly Performance front disconnects suit 2 to 4in lift, Poly performance rear links to suit 3 to 5 in lift shortened by 40mm, Poly performance front damper relocation bracket (since removed as it doesnt fit the 2010 model properly and the draglink hits the damper mounting bolt), home made 3in rear brake line extension brackets.

Likes: very stable on road, sits nicely

Dis-Likes: little bit stiff on road for the short wheelbase, havent been able to get offroad with it yet due to waiting for little bits to be finalised and torrential rains...

Would You Recommend: Yes, but not really much point since RE have closed their doors!

LIFT: Daystar 3/4" Comfort Ride Lift Kit
SHOCKS: Stock 2010 JK
SYE/CVD:Stock 2010 JK
TIRES: 255/75/17 Nitto Trail Grapplers
WHEELS: 17" Ultra Rogue 175

Likes: Lifetime Warranty: The stance if fantastic and it rides just as smooth if not smoother than before the lift. Very easy install and only takes about 2hrs. An extra pair of hands is highly recommended.


Dis-Likes: None

Would You Recommend:Yes especially for those who want to run 32" tires. This lift looks fantastic and gives a great stance to the JK with stock tires. Better height and better looking no doubt.

Just installed a ~2.5" lift with a full write-up you can find here.

LIFT: Combination of Mopar heavy duty coils (added ~1.75" of height) and DayStar 3/4" coil spacers.
SHOCKS: Old Man Emu Nitrocharger Gas Shocks.
SYE/CVD:Stock
TIRES: Stock BFG KM2
WHEELS: Stock Mountain/Call of Duty/Mojave wheels.

Likes: Just the right amount of boost so my stock tires don't look too small. Ride is far superior to stock. No changes needed beyond swapping in the new parts (i.e., didn't need to tinker with the trackbar, etc.).

Dis-Likes: None. My only hope is that it doesn't settle too far. If the coils lose more than .5", I might swap in some bigger spacers or otherwise try to get back the full 2.5".

Would You Recommend: Absolutely. It looks great, rides great, and is only 3/4" beyond the top parameters of a fully stock suspension.

Pictures: See linked thread.

SYE/CVD:
TIRES/WHEELS: BFG All Terrian 285/75 R16
Mamba M5 wheels

Likes: Install was pretty simple. Did it myself in the garage in a few hours. Never did anything like it before. Just used basic tools that anyone would have. All hardware was included with the kit and a fairly detailed easy to follow instructions.

Dis-Likes: None as on now. Had it on for about 2months

Would You Recommend: Yes, was worth it for me and didnt hurt the pocket book too bad either.

RIDE: 2011 Wrangler Unlimited
KIT PRICE: Just over $1500 - including shipping
LIFT: 3.25" Rusty's Advance Kit
SHOCKS: Rusty's - came with kit
SYE/CVD: stock
TIRES/WHEELS: 35x12.50R18 Nitto Trail Grappler / Pro Comp 7031s 18x9, 5" BS

Likes: Pretty easy to install. All bolt in. Did everything in my garage over a couple of weekends. No grinding or cutting what so ever. Adjustable everything: track bars and control arms. Comes with steal braided extended brake lines. JKS quick disos. Rides a bit firmer than stock, this is my daily driver.

Dis-Likes: Shock bushings have to be assembled. I had to have a tire shop install the top-rear bushings. Lots of little squeaks now, just really annoying.

Would You Recommend: Most definitely!!!

Have not offroaded it yet. So I can comment on that yet.

Lift: AEV 4 inch

Tires: Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ Radial 35x12.50 r16
Rims: ATX Storm Black w/teflon

All work done by Jeep certified technician, Adrenaline offroad in MD. HIGHLY recommend this shop. We used the Procal module to reset the setting to correctly use the new tires, turn off the TMPS and some other minor settings.

Pros: The ride is VERY close to the factory ride. Smooth ride with the ATZ's and the lift is just the right height.

The ride on the sand in Delaware is fine, no different from unlifted. What a cool vehicle to drive!

Cons: My vertically challenged body, read lack of height, is evident when I have to get out of the vehicle....feet don't touch the ground before exiting...not a big deal.

Lift: Teraflex 3" suspension
Shocks: Skyjacker Hydros with a Skyjacker hydro steering stabilizer
Wheels: Mickey Thompson classic II 17"
Tires: Nitto Terra Grappler 295/70R17

Likes: Has good flex over the stock suspension and rides very comfortably on the road.

Dis-Likes: Before I changed out the shocks for the skyjacker hydros the ride on pavement was incredibly rough. 17" diameter tires are quite expensive to replace I need that money for more mods like bumpers and a winch.

I would defiantly recommend the teraflex lift after the shocks were changed out it is relatively inexpensive for a 3" lift and for a DD I have no problems with the ride on the road.

Beautiful lift, very comfortable on road, very good cost, full package put together by Northridge4x4, and it out performs our Teraflex Long Arm kit. Best bang for the dollar.

LIFT: 3"BDS w/ ADJ FRONT LCAs AND QUICK DISCOs, NO CAM BOLTS
SHOCKS: BDS w/ DUAL STABILIZER KIT
WHEEL: 16X8 STEEL D WINDOW 5"BS
TIRE: 285/75R16 FALKEN ROCKY MT. ATS

LIKES: LOOKS GOOD, RIDES GREAT, HANDLES GREAT. I HAD TO DODGE A TIRE & WHEEL THAT FLEW OVER THE CENTER DIVIDER AND DID AN EVASIVE MANUEVER AT 45-50MPH, NO PROBLEM. ALMOST THREE FEET ON ARTICULATION RAMP BEFORE RIGHT REAR LIFTS AND HOOD IS STILL ALMOST LEVEL. GREAT TRAVEL.

DISLIKES: THE RIGHT REAR SHOCK BOTTOMED OUT ON THE REAR TRACK BAR BRACKET UNDER FULL STUFF MUTLIPLE TIMES DENTING THE SHOCK. THE SHOP REPLACED IT NO CHARGE AND TURNED THE BUMPSTOPS TO REDUCE COMPRESSION. NOT HIGH ENOUGH, THERES ALWAYS SOMETHING BIGGER.

I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS LIFT.

Lift is; 5" Skyjacker
Shocks are Nitro
SYE /CVD is; Stock, didnt have $ to change driveline.
17" Mambos w/ 32" tires, did install the dual steering stabilizer and dropped pitman arm.

Likes ; This is a good price at around $600 including shocks and droped pitman arm. Bolt on construction except a few holes for bump stops and relocation brackets. I didnt install the included cam bolts because the camber was not affected and I do plan on installing new control arms.
Very pleased with install did it in garage over 2 days. Would have been quicker if I had better tools. Ride is very close to stock just slightly more roll but center on gravity is higher. The flex is fair I did put the original rear sway bars in front, the ones off the rear brought the front bar up level, this is still a daily driver also.

Dislikes ; NA
Would recommend; Yes, the price is great but still need to install a new rear driveshaft.

ReadyLift SST Kit 4" front 3" rear coil spring

ReadyLift SST Kit , easy to install about 3hrs and minimal tools required, Alignment when done. I have on 325/70R17 Nitto Terra Grapplers, nice and quite tire and works awasome in the winter. Jeap rides great, little stiffer but have the air up in the tires, No Complaints think it is even better than factory.

Here is before and After

The lift kit is a 2.5 leveling kit. Maker unknown, all steel purchased from an ebay seller here 2.5" Leveling Lift Kit Jeep Wrangler JK 2007-2010 - eBay (item 180666870943 end time Sep-10-11 17:43:44 PDT)
It is a very easy kit to install and it only took a couple hours with common tools.
Pros= easy install.
Factory ride when completed.
Only common hand tools needed.
Cons= Listing says comes with brake line relocating kits, it does not, but they are really not needed anyway.
Drag link needs a small adjustment. Mine took 1/2 turn counter clockwise and steering wheel was perfect.

Tires are 235/85/17 General AT'2s
Total lift with tire's 4"

That would be a rough country. Or a good knock off. Good choice.

Man the US models really do have a forward rake to them - mine off the show room floor had the nose higher than the rear, I have lifted the rear about 3/4 inch higher than the front and the guards are now perfectly level with each other.

As for the levelling kit, I notice they incluse shock relocation brackets but no bump stop extensions. I would definatly be putting some in as the stock shocks only have about 1/2 in travel remaining at full compression, with the extensions they will over compress and either damage the shocks or damage the shock mounts.

It looks way better than expected! I love the ground clearance. It rides WAY superior to stock (takes bumps and corners really well!) Easy install. Jutst an all around good kit.
