NEW RockKrawler 2.5 X-Factor Lift

I dont know who's seen the new Rock Krawler 2.5 X Factor. Its not even being advertized on the rock krawler site yet, but its the next level 2.5 inch lift.

It looks like the 2.5 max travel with added upper control arms.

Im considering this lift with either Mickey Thompson Baja MTZs 35x12.5 or the BFG KM2 in 285/75r17. (34x11.3)

Im also picking between shocks, I looked at the bilsteins everyone has, but RK also has their own remote resivior option. I thought I might go with that.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Trying to do this right the first time.

I would definitely be interested in this lift. Where did you hear about it if not on their site? Any idea what the price would be?

Well. Here's the thing. Having the bare minimum arms is front lowers and rear uppers.

That gives you the ability in the future to buy front and rear drive shafts and make the appropriate adjustments without changing or adding anything on your jeep's suspension.


I have a 4.5" lift with a cv style rear drive shaft with adjustable front lowers and rear uppers (like the RK kit) even though I have all 6 other control arms. I don't have a need to put on the rest because I've made my suspension happy by keeping it to a bare minimum.

Even when I buy a new aftermarket front drive shaft I don't need to worry about putting on the rest of the arms. Because I got the bare minimum to run my drive lines.

I think this lift is going to come with the rear track bar.

benefits of that?

The more stuff you get with the kit the better. Adjustable front and rear trackbars are always a ++++

trackbars center your axles.

typically the first thing you do after a lift is, center axles, correct steering wheel, and set toe-in.
