I would keep a eye on the CV joints. Failure is mostly due to height and different manufactures coils net different heights. Over 3" becomes a issue especially with the 2 door rear,
Front either 2 or 4 door if you disco, if shock length is more then like 27". The DS can contact the exhaust cross pipe,. Some will upgrade the front to prevent contact and others wait until the CV fails.

Good to see you back around.

Haha...no, I've seen it, and it rocks. But I typed out my explanation to the OP, and you were just like, bam!, with three words and a link. Made me all Forrest Gump.

Glad to be back...

At a minimum, for a 2012+ Jeep with a 2.5" lift, you'll probably need something like the TeraFlex exhaust spacer, if you plan on off-roading.

Most 2.5" lifts are pretty standard...install it, drive the Jeep, and then decide if you need something like adjustable control arms (to adjust caster), or adjustable trackbars (to re-center your wheels).

Good lift brands? TeraFlex, Metal Cloak, Rock Krawler, OME...
