Lifts and actual results...

Guys, I think it would be nice to start a thread regarding the numerous lifts, full coils and or coil spacers with their advertised lift and the actual results you got from those lifts.

Would also give an idea between the different makes and end result of rakes regarding the difference between the front and rear.

So if you'll play, It would be nice to obtain results taken from the wheel hub ( middle of wheel) to the fender.

So please tell us... Make of lift, levelling kit or budget boost, advertised lift, and your actual results....and tell us what size tires you are running with these lifts.

Pics would be great....

Wouldn't you need to know about bumper weight, winches and other accessories to judge the height?

I'm not trying to be a smart, I'm still learning about this stuff.

You will also have to know whether or not it is hardtop or softtop.
If a budget boost, what factory spring # you have.

Yup... might as well ask what psi the tires are running and if the cooler of beer is still in the back. Seems like a large complicated database to create. Plus the end height isn't the end all of choosing a lift. Just concentrate on the features (and price) that are important to you and then get a good idea from there on what height those particular coils will leave you.

Thanks, guys! Honestly, I didn't mean to derail Rubisteph's thread. I think if there's some way to collect and organize all the data it'd be super useful. But from all the things I've read, it just seems like there are a ton of variables. And even the same rig could give you two different measurements, after six months of settling, right?

I 100% agree. There is a ton of variables.
The right way to measure lift at the coils. Like this v

You guys are right, thought it would be nice to have an idea of which lift reflects it's advertised height... but too many variables... flush that thread......

I think there is a way but would be limited to a certain group, which is those of us who are doing the first mods which most will probably agree will be lift tires and rims, that being said those are the ones who the data should comes from so that you rule out all the other variables to an extent cause we know we all get different kits so that data from those folks measuring like the op stated will give true results just may take a while to get a variety of results gathered but would be nice once put together, I will be doing a 2.5" RC BB series 2 in the next couple weeks and can give that info then

I agree completely and that was the whole point.... gather all this sata in one thread for futur reference to newbies or anyone wondering about or looking to lift their jk.....

Normally lift come first and measuring from hub to fender renders irrelevent the size of the tire...... I know there's tons of things that can change the results, but the point is to get a general idea....
