lift help

Hi everyone. I have few questions about 2013 jk Rubicon 4dr. I am looking at AEV 2in spacer kit and the the geometry correction kit. Has anyone used either or both of these? Also will the spacer kit be fine for 33's and stick with factory suspension? I am concerned about warranty since its omly 6 months old.

Any help would be awesome. I dont want to miss this up. Thanks in advance

The brackets position the axle for more caster. You probably won't need them running a smaller lift.

Ok, what about spacer lift? Good or bad? Will I still have articulation with front and would I need wheel spacers?

Good
If you want more flex get some longer shocks.

You may need spacers if running the stock wheels depending on tire size.

A coil lift would be better but there is nothing wrong with a spacer lift. Lifting the vehicle will not void your warranty, but the lift itself will not be covered by Chrysler. An the only way you will need spacers is if you keep the stock rims or get new rims that are more the 4.5" of back spacing
Damn kjeeper beat me to it

Do I read that correctly that you cannot keep stock wheels and tires with AEV's 2.0" Spacer Suspension? Thanks
