Sounds like he's got the 4 door so he should be golden.

jeepwayoflife We got the light load with a new bumper and 11k winch, so it should weight it down real nice hopefully it doesn't sag too much...

pluke the 2 i will say that in some cases, the length of shocks will destroy a drive shaft quicker than lift height.

jeepwayoflife Great thanks for the help! I will post some pics once its done this weekend for anyone interested

pluke the 2 it depends on the shocks you add.

if they're 10"+ shocks than you'll want new brake lines and a new front drive shaft.

if they're under a 10" traveling shock than you'll be ok.

size of the lift is not as important as shock travel when it comes to drive shaft connection with say the auto transmission or skid plate.

lift size and length of shocks will ruin a drive shaft quicker.

aelwero You shouldn't need to mod anything to fit a 2" and 33's

Zed Should be fine. You only run into issues when you lift over three. At three or more you need an exhaust spacer. BTW nice lift choice!

Quick Lift Kit Question

Hey everyone, sorry for the probably easy and stupid question. Im a TJ guy coming here because my friends dad and I are buying my friend a lift and tires for his 2012 Unlimited freedom edition (sport with different badging) for his birthday.

We bought a 2" OME lift and 33x11.5 Goodyear MT/R kevlar.

Do we need extended brake lines or any driveshaft modifications like a TJ would?

Thanks!
