Yes, the 2.5" Dual Rate Kit Introductory Price has, unfortunately, come to an end.

Still a savings over buying the parts individually.

does this kit require new driveshaft(S)? Also what would be involved in raising to the 3.5 kit down the road?

I am considering the 2.5" Gamechanger OME/ARB/Lite with with 315/70/17 Duratracs and and stock fenders with an CoD/MW3 bumpers.

Will I need a new driveshaft or risk damaging my stock one?

The instructions say backspacing of 4.0" or less is recommended. Therefore, could I save some money and get by with stock Rubicon wheels without spacers? If not, most of the wheels I'm looking at have 4.5-5.0" of backspacing. Will either of these larger than 4" backspacing create an issue?

Thanks!

Never mind about the backspacing. I just realized I understood it incorrectly.

this brand is the reason I havent gone out and got a Cheaper lift kit. Ive had my jeep 2 years now, and refuse to let my budget keep me from getting what I want. A few more months of saving and I will be purchasing this kit. I cant wait.

I bought it during the free shipping promo. It came in yesterday, I'll install next weekend. Will let you know, but everything I've heard from others has all been great!

Same ? For me

The kits that we build do not require a new drive shaft. We know of several customers that have put 30k+ miles on our kits with the stock shafts.

That being said the stock shafts do leave a lot to be desired and I have seen them fail in bone stock jeeps. I will always recommend them as part of a long term build that is going to see off road use.

I installed the 2 1/2" kit on my 2015 Hard Rock two door and have been extremely pleased with the handling and great ride afterwards.
No more body lean and I even tow my boat with the Wrangler since it handles the additional weight now and doesn't push the rear end around.

any intentions of doing a 2.5" for the TJ? i truly have no desire to go any taller than I am 2-2.5" in terms of suspension.
