Lift installed!

Just got my Jeep back from the shop. I had the following installed: RK 2.5" Max Travel lift, Bilstein shocks, JE Reel front driveshaft, Ace Rock Rails, Rubi take off rails. Very happy with how it turned out!

Very nice, that's a good looking rig. How are you liking the Bilsteins?

Wondering the same. But it looks sweet. What rails did you go with? Looks like you have 2 sets.

He explained it to me twice and I didn't fully understand. The gist of it is something fitting too tight on the 2012, need to put those in so it wouldn't break something else. He called Rock Krawler and discussed it with them and this was the solution they came up with.

I have rubicon rails and Ace Rock Rails. The Ace rails were designed to fit with the rubicon rails. So I got a set of the rubi rails used for $125 w/o the hardware so bought the hardware separately. That's was a good deal until I found out the shop I got everything installed at sells the rubi rails for $120 with the hardware.

Done!

Now I just need to add your front bumper!

So far so good, though I've only driven it for about 10 miles. I did notice that the ride seems better, especially when going around corners. The stock suspension always seems kind of bouncy on corners.

I had a few estimates for the same setup with a Teraflex lift. I liked the RK kit because it's a complete kit. Putting together the same components with Teraflex still ends up being similarly priced. I ended up going with the RK because I read a lot of good things about it. Teraflex was my second choice.

I doubt there is much difference either way.

Better answer:

To keep the axle from going to full droop and dislocating a front spring.
