Lift on 2014

Hey I'm new to this I just purchased my first wrangler it's a 2014 and I was wondering is there a limit to how many inches I can lift my jeep without voiding the warrantee? Thanks!

You're going to void your warranty on the suspension if you lift it regardless. But only on the suspension components. Rule of thumb is that the dealership has to prove that the aftermarket part caused the failure for your warranty to be void

A Mopar lift is just a rebranded lift. There is no factory lift, therefore no factory warranty coverage. The lift will be covered by the lift manufacturer.

In 2012 the mopar lifts were made by aev... Not sure who's making them now- same folks contracted to make the rubicon 10x bumpers etc.... Aev makes really high quality products but you pay for it! I went with their 2.5" dualsport lift and love it--- actually think the jk handles better with it!

I wouldn't sweat the warranty too much. If you do the research and put the $ into a quality lift you'll probably be okay.

How much lift were you looking for and do u have a jk or jku?

You won't need more than 2-4 inches.

I have a 2.5" and I run 33's and could easily put 35's under it with plenty of room to flex on trails.

Make sure you wheel your jeep stock so you can get a feel for how it handles and learn how capable it is without lifting it.... You should be able to stuff 33's under it stock id probably start there then lift it if you feel it's necessary. Just get new wheels with the right backspacing so your tires don't rub at full lock

I was thinking maybe 3 at most. I have it stock now it's a 2014 JKU barley have 900 miles on it. I plan on lifting and installing bigger tires once the goodyears it came with wear out.
