Stock set up with 3" rancho trail system.

I've search and found 2 threads similar but no answer to my question within. I have a currently stock 2013 JKU Sport. I want to install my lift, which is the rancho 3" trail system. How high will this lift the vehicle, being that there is no extra weight from aftermarket accessories? It is also a soft top. I know it will be more than 3", but is it enough to damage driveline? Once I have bumpers and winch, it'll be fine then according to 4wheel parts. Rancho is closed today...I wasn't planning on doing the driveline this soon. It was my mod after wheels and tires next week. Any experience with this set up or pics available would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

You should be fine. I did the Mopar Stage 3 kit and the driveline angles don't seem that bad. I've seen a lot worse that's for sure.

I installed the rancho 3'' kit, I got from mine 4'' in the front and 3 in the rear. Took out the rake, sits level. I have not had any driveline issues, I have about 5,000 with the kit on there. Its a great kit and rides nice. For the money, you got a great kit. I also went with the rancho 9000 shocks, I think this is where your ride comfort is going to come into play.

Rear Should be safe with a 4 door. you will want to watch the front esp if you disco off road. The DS may connect with the exhaust crossover or CV spit grease. Just jeep a eye on it.

What does the Rancho 3" kit include ? Control arms/brackets ? TB's

Thanks KJ,
The kit includes a new front track bar, rear brackets. New front sway bar links, no arms.
Good kit, I like it. I wheel it, so far holding up well. I think the front might be settling a little, I notices the steering wheel is off center slightly.

Maybe they have different kits, but my 3" trail came with front and rear upper arms.

Eta: looked it up, the sport doesn't come with the arms, the trail does.

Any more pictures of this kit installed? I have all the parts sitting in my garage along with the 9000 shocks but I will not have time to install it for another week or two. I have a 13 so I will also have to install that exhaust spacer. I also purchased the rancho correction brackets so hopefully it will be an awesome turnout. Was the install straight forward or did you run into any snags?
