MOPAR Lift

Solid info MOPAR is bringing their lift in house and it will less expensive. I do not know if this has been brought up in the forum but a rep is visiting in a couple weeks and in going to find more about it. I am 95% going with Metalcloak this summer when I am ready to lift but will listen to what he has to say. Such as warranty issues and quality. Of course I offered him my Jeep as a beta tester and he said he would pass it on...Has anyone heard anything or would like me to ask about?

MOPAR's 2 inch lift WILL be warrantied and it's looking like it will be covered under the facotry warranty. 2 inches will cost around $1100. 4 inch lift coming too, but not looking like it will be under anything longer than a 12 month 12,000 mile warranty.

That said, I am still getting my JK Cloaked when I get funds replenished.

So what your saying is that all jeep dealerships will be trained to do mopar lifts?! Shouldn't they be already? It would entice new buyers that their lift is covered under factory warranty. More cha ching for Chrysler.

If you put a lift on does that void the factory warranty on the rest of the vehicle?

A good friend of mine just bought an 2014 Rubicon-X and had the 3" Mopar lift installed. It works great and he seems to be happy with it. Not sure what your info is referring to but Mopar has had a JK lift for quite some time. I believe it is actually manufactured by Teraflex under Mopar specifications.

No. Warranties cover defects. If you put on an aftermarket part and it causes failure, you won't be covered. But if you put on a bumper and your door falls off, it will be covered.

The MOPAR lift now is not made by MOPAR. They are building their own lifts themselves and not farming them out and just sticking MOPAR on the parts.

Do not know exactly what all the parts will be but he was saying it is suppose to be $300 less than the lift now.

He said if the vehicle is abused it won't be covered. As to what "abused" is is anyone's guess. bounce it off the rocks a lot and it probably won't be covered.

He did say they are there to take care of their customers. I think the perception is that Chrysler is out to screw their customers. They are not, they want them happy and buying more Chrysler products. If they are not, they won't sell. It is that simple.

I'll get more info as it come in.

Right now TF supplies the shocks and speed bumps if equipped.
Not too sure on coils, arms, and other parts.

I don't see this changing how the warranty works through Chrysler/fiat or whoever owns the brand,
Why would they do this towards the end of the JK run ?

Fwiw... 2" shouldn't be enough to worry about driveline and steering, 4" is dicey on the driveline even with control arms. Geometry is still wrong unless the mounting positions are changed.

I'm all ears but something seems fishy to me.

The current warranty on lifts is 12 months 12,000 miles. The current lift is not covered under the factory 3/36 like most MOPAR parts. They are considered performance parts. The new 2 inch lift will be covered under the 3/36. Not talking about not voiding parts, but actually replacing the part if it breaks. It's a way for them to make more money making the parts themselves. 4 inch lift will not be covered because it is for the rock crawling/mudding crown and the 2 inch is mostly for looks.

I'll agree with that.

Lift should be out by the end of this month. I'm considering going with it instead of the Cloak for the warranty capabilities. Once I get a price and parts I'll give an update.

Hasn't come out yet. They take FOREVER to get a product to market. I'm still waiting.

This is probably something currently in the parts bin, like the 10A springs.... brings about 2" over a base model Wrangler.

Throw in some Rubicon 10A shocks and front leveling spacer..

Simple kitting job. I can't wait to see this lift...

Depends on the dealer. My dealer clearly stated my 3" mopar lift will have the same factory 3/36 warranty as the jeep itself and added should anything fail that would normally be associated to a lifted vehicle there will be no hassle getting the part replaced.....now if they stand behind we will see.

Terrible idea. Presumably you did some research to determine that the MetalCloak lift was the best for your needs, right? So, after reviewing your options and determining your performance requirements, that's what you came up with, cool. What parts do you imagine you're going to break that would necessitate an inferior lift to keep warranty coverage? That's the key right there - what analysis did you do, how good was the data and what was your total cost estimate? If the answer to those questions is none, don't have any and didn't do one, you're making a decision based on the idea that what you really want is a warranty, not a lift.

That's just one man's opinion though.

Mine came from the dealer with I believe a 3.5 inch pro comp lift. Dealer said it will be covered for the full 3/36. Whichever comes first, the lift is gone and another is going in.

Dealership: Autonation in Golden, Colorado.

Price quoted to me for 4" lift, new wheels (5), 37" tires (5), AEV Bumper and carrier, shocks Bilstein on a JKUR, $7,200. Yes, 7,200 hundred dollars.

After hearing that I wasn't into any of the details. The service tech did say it was all warrented as long as spacers were'nt installed.

That MOPAR kit better be a hell of a lot cheaper...oh and this was for a short arm lift, I think he said AEV?

If it helps you guys out I had the MOPAR 3" lift installed when I bought my JKU about a month ago. The lift is $2400 and has just about everything you need with it. I took KJeeper10's advice when I bought it and added a front track bar (I went with Synergy) and got the Northridge bolt kit. The dealer charged me $640 to do the lift, mount and balance tires, and alignment. They even put the trackbar on at no additional charge.

The parts are all TeraFlex. Its a great lift and rides way better than previous MOPAR lifts that use the Bilstein shocks. I test drove a Jeep on the lot with the MOPAR 2.5, the springs and shocks might as well have been solid rods.

The price seems a little pricey at first, but after I had already paid for it I wanted to do some research and see how bad off I was... Its a pretty solid deal. I couldn't find anything with the Fox 2.0 remote res shocks and TeraFlex speed bumps up front for that kind of money. I spent, just on lift parts, $2650.

I run the crap out of it on the desert trails near my house and haven't had a single problem. It will get put through it's paces at the sand dunes this winter too.

I have the warranty paperwork and can give you the answer on the how long the MOPAR warranty for that is too, its just not handy (I am at work, of course). But, I cheated and got an extended bumper to bumper warranty to include aftermarket products. No matter what the MOPAR packet says I have 5/75 on it.

*edit: Also, you can go to TeraFlex's YouTube channel to watch a video of the install process. That will give you a good idea of what you are getting with the kit.

The OP seems to be saying that Mopar is making a new lift in-house. The lift you have is the Mopar stage 3 aka Teraflex Prerunner that has been available for a couple of years now.
I personally dig the Teraflex kit you have and it's certainly on my short list. I've kind of been waiting to see what this Mopar kit the OP mentions is all about.
But, I like the idea of a lift built for speed.

This is JMHO, but if MOPAR is going to make one in house we would have seen it at Easter Jeep Safari, or we will see it at SEMA. I would bet they have some sort of contract with TeraFlex for X amount of years... but, like I said, that's just my opinion.

My other opinion... Why wait? The one they have now is great!
