Most likely a small lift kit (probably 2") and some bigger wheels/tires

Kind of curious.. are any of your existing products compatible with JL? I saw some other builds and they saw they are a lot of variation on axle brackets and bumper brackets etc..

We are still in the process of measuring the new Jeep to see how it compares with the old one, there is indeed quite a bit of variation.

Let's try again with a photo dump. Let me know if these photos work! Since I last posted, we have fitted the Destroyer Series front bumpers, Signature Series fronts, and are now working on sliders!

We are also changing the tires/wheels and installing the Mopar 2" lift kit for added offroad capability!

IMGUR doesn't work on this site. Try Nickpic or Shutterfly. Personally I like Nickpic https://nickpic.host

Removing the factory bumper does a world of difference for the JL. Not a fan of the new bumper at all.
Unstuck 16 and 1 crazy man like this.

It seems like the 2" Mopar lift gives the JL a lot more lift than it did for the JK. Thoughts?

Looks great!

Yeah, due to the way the JL suspension is constructed, the JL with a 2" on 35s sits about as high as our JK did with a 4.5" kit and 35s. There have been a couple of comparisons on this forum. I have yet to get both the company Jeeps side by side and take some comparison pictures.

Thanks for the confirmation. Looking forward to seeing more JL LoD products!

Quick Question

What is the overall height of the JL now with the 2" lift and 35's? Trying to see if mine will still fit in the garage after doing the same setup.

I was thinking I could make a really nice study crate for my son's desk. I guess I could always get some wood & paint it on myself.

We are currently fitting and adapting our Destroyer bumper and tire carrier line to work on the JL!

Yep, that is one of our Destroyer Series bumpers for the JL! Similar to the one for the JK!

When do you estimate availability on the front and rear bumpers? Really interested in the Destroyer shorty versions similar to the JKU shorty destroyers.
