Mopar 2" Lift Kit with Bilstein Shocks

I have a 2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. I want to run bigget tires on the my Jeep and have been doing some research on the lift kits. I know that the Mopar kit will end up costing me about $500.00 more, but I know that the dealer will warranty my Jeep. I was wondering if anyone has this kit on their Jeep or has driven one with the Bilstein shocks. How does it ride compared to the factory springs and shocks?

Seems a waste to go Mopar. Dealer's warranty the Jeep with other kits... just not the control arms/driveline (which your not going to have too much trouble with... and it depends on the way the dealer files the claim with Chrysler... if you know your dealer this isn't a problem). I suggest the OME kit (Old Man Emun from ARB). Comes medium or hard stiffness and those nifty Nitrocharger shocks.

Easily run 35" tires with that (with aftermarket wheels or spacers)

I have the 3" MOPAR lift, and I am quite happy with it. I only have 33's but I have plenty of room all around the tire.

Just to be clear, any well-made 2" lift properly installed by anybody won't effect your warranty.

That said, if you want Mopar and have the extra cash, go Mopar. I don't have that lift, but I expect it would ride somewhat like what you have now but moderately stiffer. You presently have gas shocks and (likely) mid-level coils. You'll be swapping those for another set of gas shocks and taller likely mid- to heavy coils. Should be on the "similar-to-stiffer" spectrum.
