I dont know what the issue is. I spoke to FedEx a bit ago and she said the shipper shipped it as 150 lbs but the crate and materials weigh 176 lbs. She said FedEx has a 150 lb limit for van delivery. If the crate weighs 176 lbs, I kind of cant argue with them. I wouldnt want to have to deliver something that heavy out of the back of a box truck.

In any case, I agreed to go to the terminal and pick it up. I just hope it will fit in the back of my JKU.

I then got on chat with Amazon and raised cain. They told me they would give fedex a notice to deliver. I told the agent I already spoke to FedEx and theres two options, I pick it up or theyre sending it back to the shipper. Amazon gave me a $20 credit as a result (dont hurt yourself Amazon!).

Bottom line is that the FedEx driver in my area is lazy. I have a long driveway...he left all five of my brand new KO2's on the curb in November! I got the notice they were delivered through text so my poor wife walked out and saw they were down there. She rolled them up behind a tree until I got home. I hate to think what would have happened if a certain kind of someone would have rolled by. Free tires! You cant see the bottom of the driveway from the house.

ANd last fall, FedEx left a CCNA rack kit with router and switches on my side porch in a torrential down poor. They didnt cover it or anything. So yeah, theyre probably just a bunch of lazy people in my area.

Most likely it’s NOT going to fit in your rig unless you break it down. I got a couple of the crates from a dealer to make furniture/man cave and it wouldn’t fit in my JK..no back seat either. It wouldn’t clear the rear opening. Ez to break down tho. Take a long flat tip..nothing flimsy and channel lock or vise grip. Pop the metal brackets with the flat tip while holding the bracket with the channel lock or vise grip because they will fly off..with some force I might add. Then just stack the crate and load the parts.

Went to the terminal ad picked it up. It slid right into the back of my JKU. Got it home and opened it up. A quick inventory shows everything is there. My driveshaft yoke was bent a tiny bit on the flange just like another earlier posters was but I dont believe it is of any concern. Its minor. Everything else appears to be good to go.

Arrow Wrong! The lift DOES come with Fox shocks

Don't give up on your warranty work, as you know, the MOPAR kit *DOES* include Fox shocks.

We had our new purchase dealer install the lift kit for a reasonable price, and documented that for both warranty and extended service contract purposes. Helps us avoid the quibbling and hassle you're wrongfully facing.

Find another dealer and try again. Good luck!

Just when you thought Jeep service couldn’t get any worse...

Jeep parts delivery misfires...

Glad your KO2'$ didn't get stolen.

We had five Jeep/Truck tire$ left outside our rural gate at another property - a friend saw them and immediately pulled them inside the property before they could be stolen. Apparently a questionable guy in a work truck drove by, saw the tires, and looped back to grab them, but they were safely inside before he got back - close call.

Some of the new Amazon delivery service folks aren't too bright and they leave packages outside gates...

We're lucky at our AZ place - our FedEx/UPS guys are great, and always deliver Ammo to the porch. They also plastic-bag all parcels if there's the slightest possibility of rain in the forecast.

Done!

I finally had a nice weekend and time to do the install.

I installed the lift with driveshaft, Rancho geometry correction brackets and parking brake relocation bracket. Took me about 8 hours across two days in the driveway on jack stands. Pretty straight forward really. The hardest part really was getting the front coils in. It helps to have someone help push the axle down while applying leverage to get the coils to pop in. The geo brackets I did last once the Jeep lift was finished and sitting on the ground. I used a ratchet strap to pull the axle where I needed it. Otherwise, they were super simple to install.

Anyhow, so far so great! I love the way the Jeep rides and drives now. So tight and smooth. This is the single best thing I have done to my Jeep.

Here is a picture of it as it sits now. I have 285/75r17 tires on factory wheels with 1.5" wheel spacers. It had a teraflex leveling kit on prior to installing the lift, so I dont have a before and after.

Our mail lady and UPS driver are fantastic. Its just FedEx that I seem to have issues with. But as they say, all's well that ends well.

15,000 Miles on my 2in Lift and its been great. The Mopar BBK really is essential with this kit though.

(Pre - Mopar BBK and TF Alpine LCA's install shots )

Nor10 - it looks good. Question, with the 2in. lift and the stock wheels and the 285x75/17 tires would they rub without having the spacers?

They will rub the stock front plastic air dam for sure. I took mine off because even with spacers they would rub it when I was backing up in reverse. Other than that I dont thing they would rub anywhere else, but I dont know because i havent tried without spacers. . The stock tires are 10" wide, the 285/75r17 are 11.2" so figure .6" either direction increase in width.

I like the wide stance and had the spacers from my other jeep so on they went.

But like I said I have NOT tried without so I do not know for sure.

You most likely will rub on factory air dam if you still have it, sway bars and even frame when offroad flexed turning. You will also be close to rear control arms. add some spidertrax spacers. I have had 3 rubicons with 285/75-17 on stock rims and running around town you will be fine go offroad and you will rub.

Anybody running aftermarket LCAs AND the Rancho drop brackets? I'm wondering what hole I should be using, or if I should go back to the stock arms. Currently running the TF Sport arms, but have a set of drop brackets I want to put on to improve the ride a bit.

stock. tf sport arms and geo brackets would give you way too much caster.

Rec'd my 2-door kit yesterday--very excited!! Trying to determine two things:

1. Did I receive all the necessary small hardware/fasteners? And,

2. The driveshaft yoke is slightly bent. Do I just hammer/bend it back out good enough for government work, or do I need to get this part replaced?

Thank you!!

Thank you, sir!


As for inventory, I should have mentioned my suspicion is I am missing a rear track bar bolt (see attached). If so, is there a part number for this bolt, by chance??

So, I have read quite a bit of this thread and have a question.
I read early in this thread where you could use the stock wheels and tires if they flip the rear sway bar links (and may have to reverse the bolts). Is this correct? Is this the only place where contact or rubbing would occur?
I don’t want to change wheels or tire size. I only want the lift. And I don’t want to add spacers either. If it will contact at all (even when disconnected) with stock wheels I will not lift.

I just did a quick check of mine. The bracket is really close to the spring but no contact as far as i can see.

Check to make sure that the tops of the springs are correctly seated.

Mine was very close to touching. I just loosened up the U-bolt and used a pry bar to twist the bracket slightly and then tightened the U-bolt up.
When I moved my track bar to the top hole, the bolt was too long and would hit the spring. I shortened the bolt 1/4” and all is well.
Good luck!

I would be done with dealer if not because of the extended warranty I paid for.

When I purchased my 2015 jku from other town I've been told the extended warranty I paid for are the factory warranty, but it was not. They sold me after market extended warranty instead, it's my fault not checking what's on the paper. But now I felt lucky it wasn't factory warranty. Because the experience I've been getting from the dealer near where I live.

Benign of this year my jku developed with some clicking sound/issues from the engine and under the body when I put on 4h, so I sent it to the dealer checking on the issue. Found out some problem from the engine, front driveshaft was damaged from my 2.5 inch jks lift, and some axle u joint damage(no idea how this happened) ? So the dealer went thru my aftermarket warranty company covered fixing axle u join, engine, but told them the driveshaft damage was from my severe suspension lift so that was not covered. So I left the shop with the damaged driveshaft think I'll just replace with a aftermarket driveshaft my self later down the road.

But after 2month the jeep developed over heating, and a neon green fuild leaking problem. I was 100% sure it's not the coolant cuz I know for fact my jku using hoat purple color coolant. So I send it back to dealer again and it turns out it was a leaking radiator with mixed wrong coolant in it. I suspect it was from the last time it's in the shop they must put wrong coolant when they were fixing my clicking sound from the engine. Because since I own this jku the only time it went in any auto shop was that time. I've been doing my own maintenance for the past 4years, and the only time I've added the coolant was 2years ago i made sure the coolant i added was hoat stuff.
But since on my recipe/work sheet it didn't state that they topped off coolant I got no proof they fked it up. so the repair went thru the warranty company again. And luckily they covered most of the expenses (900) I just had to pay 400 out of my own pocket to replace new radiator and flush/clean/replace anything related to coolant.

3month later/a week ago the clicking sound from the driveshaft is back this time I didn't need to put on 4h, plus shaking/bouncing from the front. So I knew it's the driveshaft again, but just to make sure there isn't any more problem I send it back to the dealer again, this time I argued with the dealer told them stop calling a 2.5 inch lift a severe lift, it sounds like I had the jeep lifted thu the roof. So they tried to contact the warranty but called me back telling me no one is answering the phone and tried sell me the factory drive shaft for 870 with 400 labor cost to replace it. And telling me they are 100% sure the warranty company wont cover it because of my suspension lift. So I told them keep contacting the warranty company until I get a answer from the warranty I will keep my jeep at the dealer. A little after a week at the shop warranty company send a evaluator to take a look at the jeep instead just listening to whatever the dealer telling them. And guess what THEY COVERED EVERYTHING with no extra cost from my pocket.

So yeah, from the story I see from the guys here I felt like if I had the factory extended warranty I would probably had to pay all of the repairs I had to do within this 6 month from my own pocket.

I Love jeeps but f k their dealership. The only good experience I had was from Toyota. Their customer service are on another level compared to other brand I've delt with Mazda, Honda, Chevy, and Mercedes. They even give me a free rental car just for a oil change, who the hell does that? Even Mercedes doesn't give me a free rental for just a oil change.

The thread search feature was unfortunately unhelpful, so a few questions:

1. What is the correct torque for the yoke nut? 90-130ft-lbs in the instructions... what does that even mean, lol? Am I supposed to just guess some number in that range?

2. Watching vids of other driveshaft installs, it seems adding silicone to the bottom of the yoke nut prior to install is a thing. Instructions for lift don't mention anything like that. Any reason to do that, or is that just a thing for other driveshafts? Does the included rubber washer perhaps serve to achieve what the silicone does?

3. Does the driveshaft come pre-greased? I don't know how to tell; I can say for certainty I cannot move around the end that connects to the yoke with my hands--it's just kind of 'stuck' in the position it arrived in.

Thanks!

Stock or aftermarket?

Adams Driveshafts has a great set of instructions for the jk ..very clear.

It is the driveshaft that comes with the Mopar 2" kit, so I presume aftermarket? A new yoke nut was also included in the kit, FWIW.

Yeah, I have their instructions bookmarked, as I found them very informative and clear as well. But they add additional things like reusing the round rubber washer, adding silicone to the nut, and using red loctite--none of which gets a nod in the Mopar instructions. Thus, really looking for advice on which one would be better to follow, and if doing things that are not in the Mopar instructions won't cause problems down the line.

If possible would you guys be able to post pictures of your bracket so I could compare.
Thank you
Mine hit. I cut away the unused part of the bracket. Ultimately I replaced the rear bracket because the clamp on style will always move if you stress it enough, so I went to a weld on bracket.

The real fix is to use spring wedges to straighten the rear springs, but that will raise the rear about 1/2".
