Mopar 2 inch lift 77070088 - with Fox Shocks

Anyone installed this exact kit? Quadratech says it has only been in their system since late last month. Local dealer says it is an old part number. I have not heard back from Mopar yet.

It is listed in the newer Performance Catalog that is pretty new. Uses FOX Racing Shox 2.0 Performance Series IFP shocks.

I plan on using AEV brackets not the caster bolts.

If so can you share how much lift change you got? Do you like it so far?

I know everyone likes AEV and I almost went that route but I am not going bigger than 33 tires (pizza cutters) and really like the idea of a 2 inch lift. I also considered RockKrawler but want to keep as much stock as possible, so Mopar has a great draw and at the price looks good for what you get.

My 2014 JK has the 10A or X bumpers on it so they are light and I do not want more than 2-2.5 lift.

Thanks.

The Mopar 2" lift has been out there for awhile, but not the 2" lift you are referencing. This is the new catalog and it definitely says a new Mopar 2" lift with springs and Fox Shocks.

This catalog was published in 2014... so it is the latest.

Well I thought I would add some more info for those that may be searching for more details on this lift.

I called Mopar and they pointed out that this is a Mopar part number now 77070088 unlike the other Performance part numbers that start with a P such as the other, maybe older 2 inch lift P5156116. So I was told this is a brand new lift that has been developed by Mopar.

I also found a short write up here about the new lift -
Jeep Confronts the Aftermarket Head-on With New Mopar Parts - Kelley Blue Book

For the price and that it is, and a true Mopar lift I am going to try it. I am still interested if anyone else has installed one yet. Quadratec said I was the first to order it from them. My local shop could not beat their price, but can get Mopar parts pretty cheap which was interesting.

I will update when I receive it and get it installed.

I just ordered this kit this morning from Quadratec. I spoke to them after I placed the order and they said they actually order the kit from a local Mopar dealer and it takes them about a week to get in so I should have it in a couple of weeks. Interesting because when I called my own local Jeep dealer they said the 2" kit was discontinued. Maybe this new kit wasn't in their system yet.

Will report back after it's installed.

I was on the fence between this and the TeraFlex 2.5" kit but the Fox shocks really swayed me. I'm going to be running 33" Trail Grapplers w/ AEV bumpers so I think this should be the perfect amount of height.

Good Ol Ebay, no other site has a picture of this kit except Ebay. I picked up my big Jeep box yesterday late after having it on will call at the trucking yard. I have not opened it yet, I know, I was very busy yesterday. It looks just like this pick. I will be taking my time doing the install so tbizness may beat me to it, but I will take pics when I can.

Ebay picture is at this listing - http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/181597847505?lpid=82

jcinaz, any scoop on those springs would be great. As in any indication of who might be making them or did Jeep/Mopar actually have them produced themselves. Also, the extended length on those shocks would be great. I am thinking they will be 25".

TxJprs, I will when I can.

Also to anyone interested in this lift, note in the pics that what you get vs the Quadratec list of parts included is totally off.

Also note the picture above is not from my box but from the Ebay seller. I do not expect mine to be different. With the drive shaft and shocks though it is a pretty cool lift. I also ordered the Rubicon required longer front sway bar links and AEV Geometry Correction Front Control Arm Brackets.

Anyone know how much this would cost in labor to install, if the dealer did the work?

Is that a front or rear shaft?

I saw that kit in a SEMA post. Not sure the reason for a driveshaft at 2" though.

Possibly TF coils ? I know they make other kits/parts for Mopar.

The length indicates possibly the rear shaft.. replacing that huge drive shaft made from beer cans.

Steve White Motors quoted $495 I recall. I have it in another post I started on this lift.

Doesn't make sense, it should be the front shaft.

There looks to be a few options. Both 2/4 door front shafts are close in length. Rear will be longer on a 4 door.

Quick update on my Quadratec order. Called this morning and they said my kit should be in Tuesday next week. More importantly I noticed they raised the price from $1,000+$100 shipping (what I paid) to $1,500+$100 shipping. They said it's the same kit - I just happened to score a very good deal because they didn't update the price on their site for this new kit. We'll see...

For anyone else looking to order, at this point it's cheaper to get the kit on eBay with faster shipping like jcinaz did vs. ordering from Quadratec who just places a 7-10 day lead time order with a local Jeep dealer.

KJ10... why the front shaft? The rear is the one that needs help.

I don't understand why they include a front shaft for a 2" lift..

Thinner drive shaft so you won't need exhaust spacers?

the front shaft is the issue on 12-15 jk's as it contacts the exhaust.

I have the Mopar 3" lift that I got with my JKU this summer. I love the 3" lift, the only thing I added was a Synergy front track bar. I test drove a JKU with the previous Mopar lift that used the Bilstein shocks and the Fox setup rides much nicer. The lift I have is basically the 3" Teraflex kit (Teraflex makes the Mopar kit). I think the big thing they changed is including a drive shaft instead of exhaust spacers. I wonder if the dealer will trade me??

Edit: Just took a look, the kit that is pictured in the catalog that was linked to above is EXACTLY what I have.

The 2012+ needs a front shaft with anything more than about 2.5" lift otherwise the driveshaft will contact the exhaust at full droop. Other option is exhaust spacers and I can understand why Mopar wouldn't want to use them.

Can probably get it in the aftermarket cheaper, I'd be very surprised if it's an actual Mopar unit and not built for them.
