Lift?

I bought a 2008 a couple of months ago and it came with 30 inch street tires with less than 1K miles on them (for sale if anyone interested). I put 33 inch mudders on it and still has 3.5 inches of clearance to the flares. Has this thing been lifted or is this the stock height for this year?

Sounds stock, look to see if there is a tag on the coil springs. If there is one the last two numbers tell what coil you have (front last two should be 12 to 19 and rear 53 to 60). The JK has a taller stance to it. It also has to do with what stock coils your Jeep comes with. I have 285/70/17 on mine which are 32.71" and have 6.5" clearance to out fender flair in front and 5.5" in rear. I do have a 1" Teraflex leveling spacer and the rest of the height was just by adding stiffer stock coils 19/60. A JK with 14/54 stock will set around 2" lower then one with stock 19/60. That's why some get even more height out of a lift then others because it depends on what stock coils you have.

Agreed, I like it much better with the new tires.
I pulled the sticker off of the back spring and the bar code is 68004255AA and on the rap around is 6800/4255AA

So I could get it higher just by changing the springs without needing new break lines or anything else? Is this something you would have the dealer do or buy them somewhere else and get a shop to do it?

You have stock 55's on the rear and you can go up to 60 which will give you from 1.5 to 2" and I didn't have to change anything else. You can do this yourself with two jacks and a set of Jack stands and a good tool set. But any mechanic or offroad shop would probably do it cheaper then the dealer. Only takes a couple hours to change them all if you can and have a little help.

The dealer will charge 10 to 15 dollars more then directly from Chrysler. You can order them directly front Mopar at Chrysler Parts Center - Call (800) 519-5279 for Genuine Dodge Parts, Genuine OEM Chrysler Parts and Accessories, Dodge Parts, Jeep Parts, Plymouth Parts, Eagle Parts

Here is a thread on it. http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/con...p-55849-2.html

I paid $35 each for the rear coils and the fronts were $43 each for a total of $156.00, I think shipping was around $24 if I remember right.

I contacted my jeep dealer parts dept. And they said Chrysler doesn't offer heavy duty springs. I don't get it? My jku has 16 up front and 58 in rear. I wanted to max out.
Pat, where are you? It was your fields jeep dealer.

Cool beans, thanks for the detailed answer. Now I just have to convince the wife that I need it. Might be a tough sell, she already has trouble getting in the saddle.
