All the JK/JKUs from 2007 thru 2011 with autos, CAME WITH COOLER !!

It just ain't worth a ####-

So we still don't know if the 2012 may NEED AN AUX COOLER !!

Asfir4x4 B&M Tranny cooler is one of the best. You might even try ORW in California, they just released a full kit that looks very simple to install.

Not sure if they will make changes in the 2012 models that will fix the fatal angle issue. As far as JK's to date, there is a limit to lifting a JK without having major driveshaft issues. Actually the issue is with the boots on the driveshaft joints.

A 2 dr is limited to 2.5" lift but many quality 3" lifts will work but 3" is so borderline 2.5" is the recommended max lift. On a 4 dr it is 3.5" absolute safe with 4" borderline that some get by with and some have the boot issue. Fatal angle at higher lift are not guaranteed but are a possibility.

So if you plan on not replacing the driveshaft with improved joints, stick with 2.5" lift or smaller on a 2 dr and 3.5" or smaller on a 4 dr to avoid the fatal angle issue.

kfdjason7620 Yeah unless you want to go BIG, then 2" will be perfect, then you wont need to do any major driveline changes, but with flat fenders and the right backspaced rims, it'll fit 33s with no lift or a small spring spacer.

Help lifting and flexing plains

Long story short, I will soon be getting 2012 JK soon but not soon enough. Making Plains, I know thing might change a little due to the fit of 2012. I need help with planning. Obviously I’m new. I want a little lift and a little flex. I will be an every other weakened type of off roader. Not spend too much (the wife). I have been looking around. Here is what I found. What is wrong with this and what else do I need.
Skyjacker 2”Budget Boost or Skyjacker 4-5” Economy lift kit w/ Hydro shocks
Skyjacker front upper single Flex arms
What first, then, and then
