I almost completed my 2.5" TF coil lift yesterday on my 2012 2 door. I installed everything except for the track bars (man it looks awesome)
. I was soo tired at the end of the day I decided to look on You Tube at the install done on the video. After watching it I noticed some things mentioned that were not mentioned in the paper instructions supplied. First was removing the front brakeline bracket at the bottom so the axle can drop further (it was mentioned for the rear but not the front). I was looking for anything hanging up and noticed the brakelines needed to be disconnected. No problem, I figured out myself. You would think they would mention that though. Second was the front shocks. I did not use the gold washers and rubber supplied with the new shocks because nothing was mentioned about them. The instructions just say something about installing the new shock just like the old one was removed. The passenger one was a BI#@* to tighten. Just to help other people out. If you open the hood and remove the fuse panel in front of the battery (it has four clips that you can "pop" to lift the whole unit out) you can drill a small hole in the plastic so you can access the top bolt on the shock. I don't know how others have tightened that shock. Third is regarding thghtening the upper controll arms in the rear. The instructions tell you to install the tires and lower the vehicle at normal ride hight and THEN tighten all control arms. I did that and then realized you can't tighten the front of the upper control arm in the rear because the tire is in the way. I just raised it back up, removed the tire and tightened it "in the air."
With all that said, don't let this deter anyone from getting this lift. I absolutely love the way it looks and I would do it all over again. I have a question though. The rear is lower than the front and I was wondering what you would recommend to get it level. I have the Rockhard rear bumper with tire carrier and it is heavy as hell. That coupled with the new 33" spare keeps the rear lower.
Thank you all for great info on this site so my jeep can look/function awesome.
