Quick help determining what Mopar lift!
 
Hey all,
Thanks in advance- everyone on here's been awesome to my girl and I. We bought her 09 Unlimited certified preowned from the dealer here in Long Island, and I know there's a Mopar lift on it, just not sure if it's the. I tried looking on Mopar's website, with no luck. If someone knows how I can measure it, or just by looking at the pics, tell me what it is- you'd be my hero. The reasoning is I'm getting discos, and want to figure out if I can use the 2.5-6" discos on just a standard 2" lift, or I need the 0-2" discos. I know this will help:

33" Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ's
Mopar Lift with Bilstein shocks..I know Mopar makes a 2" and 4.5" lift.

That's definitely not 4.5" of lift.

Does that help?

I pretty much thought so- but just wanted to make sure..thanks!

On another note- would going with a 2" spacer lift be of any benefit?

Depends on the benefit your looking for. What are you hoping to do?

Little more clearance on the tires- with plans to go up to 35's. I'm definitely going to need wheelspacers though, as at full turn the tires rub. Rarely are they at full lock, but still. Not looking for massive amounts of flex- yet. We live on Long Island, so there's no crazy places to go. It is her DD, but we do go to my vacation house upstate NY where we go offroading on my family's property. Just trying to get my head around some ideas. Ordering discos- I'm leaning towards the TF ones because they mount to the frame when disconnected. That's the only advantage over the JKS ones. Input?

You could add more lift, but you're tinkering with the geometry of the vehicle and you start needing to change more and more stuff. 4" would be a lot of lift.

I'd stick with the existing lift and spend the money on getting new wheels with the proper backspacing. If you end up with 35s, just trim the stock fender flares or buy flatties.

JKS are sort of the industry standard, so I'd lean that way. On a budget though, Rusty's Offroad makes some for a very low cost.
