make sure they come with control arms for aftermarket drive shafts that you'll be needing sooner than later.

So looks like supper lift makes the mopar 4" lift. I got mine its pretty nice came with everything I needed because I have to ask a billion questions ! The dealer hooked me up with 35" and the lift. Looks much better now. I will post more picks when u get off work. Ps I hardly paid for the lift so if I would of had to pay full I would have gone elsewhere.

Oh it's still got the warranty ! And that I am not kidding!

They are fixed

OP for the money there are better choices for you, don't fall for the "warranty" shat they babble.

Edit... I see you got it, looks good. My comment still stands for others stopping by.

I agree about the warranty; it should be a non issue in most cases.

Mopar(Teraflex) has several advantages for certain people. I want fixed control arms on my lift. I have my reasons that have been stated prior. Not everyone needs to adjust there arms. They have other benefits too.

a four inch lift and a failed drive shaft seems as though you'lll have some issues with warranty.

There's no factory warranty on the lift or any damage it causes. Sorry.

I'll go ahead and address it like it's going to the warranty issue. Yep, from the webpage: "The Lift Kit warrantor is the Lift Kit manufacturer, not Mopar, Chyrsler Group LLC, or the dealership selling the product."

The PDF of the "limited lifetime warranty" manual available on the website won't open for some reason, but the Mopar performance parts catalog (which sells these lifts) is clear that they're sold with no warranty of any kind whatsoever by Chrysler or Mopar.

So again, as far as I know Mopar lifts come with no warranty from Chrysler. Any warranty you have on the parts is from the manufacturer (as would be true of any brand of lift) and any warranty you have on the install is from the dealer (as would be true of any reputable shop).

Thus, unless you're getting some kind of crazy deal from the dealer (unlikely, even if you believe you are) or unless you're simply willing to pay for the convenience of getting a lift installed by the dealer rather than having to do it yourself or find a new shop, there's really no reason to get a Mopar lift.

OP, if you are happy with your lift that is really all that matters. What the others have said about the warranty is all correct but with any luck at all your dealer will stand behind it should you have any issues. Make sure you keep an eye and ear on the driveshafts especially the front one where it leaves the transfer case. If it starts throwing grease on the underside of the jeep it will be time to order a new one. A complete set (front and rear) will run you about $700! I crawl under mine once a week and take a look just so I know when it's time.

I knew about the DS needing to be switched to CV.

Where did you find a set for $700?

Morning.

Technically we allready have a CV joints (Rzeppa) All except the u-joint up front.
Check out Adams driveshafts. Through Adams themselves or Stomper off road.
Dig through my past threads. I have a front
that I paid around $300 for. Rear cost a little more because both the yokes are replaced,the factory flange in front is retained at the pinion so it cost less.
In case you are not aware. You will need adjustable control arms to align the pinion inline with a double carden type driveshaft.
This is why I don't care for fixed control arms.
