MOPAR 2” Lift Height Change

How much height change did your MOPAR 2” lift get you?

I am looking at this lift and curious as to how accurate the 2” description is.

and that all depends on what you have on it.

Steel bumpers = less
roof rack = less
winch = less
backbone = less
fridge/tray setup = less
bigger rails = less
skid plates = less

I should have put I have steel bumpers (OEM ones ie recon, 10A etc) VR10 Winch, Skid plates underneath, carry a fridge much of the time, ~100lb rear tire/combo on a TF hinge. So while not the heaviest not the lightest either.

Thank you everyone for the feedback.
I would think that a before and after measurement would give an accurate measurement no matter the loading as long as the loading stayed the same, because the load would sag the original suspension too?
I have a JKUR Hardrock and am pondering the Mopar lift. I like that it comes with a new drive shaft for the front and Fox shocks.

I am thinking of the putting on the 2" lift and leaving my stock 32" tires. I like the look of the lift with stock tires actually. I know, I know...….go big or go home. LOL

2015 Jk, 2” Lift, steel full width bumpers, winch, full under armor, HD tailgate hinges and tire carrier, sliders, plus some more little things. I measured before and after, center of hub to fender lip. I netted 3 3/8 in the front and 2 1/4 in the rear. Now 20k miles later same measurements. Assumed I would lose height over time but have not. 33” inch tires and I regularly do most of the trails in Big Bear. You don’t have to home if you don’t go big.

Big Bear is where I want to start exploring. The desert is just too far to drive because of the traffic (either Vegas, or Palm Springs traffic) adding at least an hour every time.
Anza Borrego is even worse. It is only 120 miles but it takes over three hours??

After settling or “sag”?? I hear the Mopar 2” doesn’t settle over time and that it retains the height.

Not my experience at all. Full set of springs sitting in a box in the garage. Free if you can pick them up. Junk. And they were new last year.

I got about 2.5 inches out of mine, pretty even both front and back, I have had zero sag and think it looks great. I picked up my kit on amazon and saved about 500 bucks from buying it. I had to wait about a month as i watched the price.

I got a little over 3" in front and a little under 3" in rear in JKU. CB antenna barely tapped weather stripping going into garage when i first installed about a year ago. Now it just barely clears without tapping, so maybe sagged a 1/8" in a year.

So, your Mopar lift lost height after running it? Wow. How much did they sag?

There's a long discussion thread here on the Mopar 2in lift:
https://www.wranglerforum.com/f274/m...ks-972321.html

That guy seems to be the only one out of about a 1000 in that discussion who seems to have complained about the Mopar 2in lift sagging, so take it with a grain of salt.

Stock weight I got 3 1/8" of actual lift from the Mopar 2in lift. 3 1/4" front and 3" rear. After adding steal bumpers, 12K winch, front skid plate, HD tire carrier, and mounting a 35in spare, that additional weight puts me at 2 3/4" overall. That seems to align with Jadmt reports since it sounds like his weight is somewhere between my stock weight measurements and my current weighted measurements.

I think El Burro either added much more weight for his uses, or purchased the previous Teraflex 2.5in Mopar branded lift where the TF version was known to be 2.5in at stock weight and wasn't really designed for adding additional weight but he's usually too busy complaining about the sag he observed and telling the rest of us how we don't know what we're talking about to be able to get into those type of details.

2/1000, my front is just under 2” after 20,000 miles. Going to replace them some Evo 3” coils soon.

My 2" got me 2.5" exactly front and rear (fully loaded, front bumper + winch + rock rails) but I spaced out the passenger side 8mm to even things up and I added spring wedges on the rear which give some lift.

Yeah, that is close to where we usually go.
We usually go south of there to Gold Crown Road as there is a lot of stuff there too. We are wanting some greenery on our next run. The desert is nice but it is getting old seeing gravel roads and rocks everywhere. One of the guys from work always goes out to Afton Canyon, but again that is a whole lot of desert gravel roads.

That is why I am interested in Big Bear area. Cleghorn road is real cool, but no camping.

Just under 3" on our two door. No sag in the year it has been on.

Love the lift and am very pleased with it.

1.5” in the front. Stock bumpers. Sorry for the delay... I think there are better options available for you.

Wow, that is quite a difference. To loose 1.5" of a 2" lift is pretty distressing. Did you buy it from a non-Jeep dealer?? I would think it was a knock off lift.

My Mopar lift did ok, I think it sagged a little, but not much at all - nothing I wouldn't expect.

The coils have more space between them and are softer than the TF 2.5" which I recently put on in hopes of gaining maybe a half inch or so - instead I lost a quarter inch. The Mopar seems to do better loaded down though, mine ran better when I was loaded than empty - but it's soft enough that I lost almost all my height loaded too.

I have also noticed that since switching to the slightly lower TF, my driveline vibe/noise I had every now and again seems to be gone.

One thing to keep in mind when talking about "sag" is whether it is increased sag from extra weight or sag from the springs sagging over time.
For most people the Mopar springs don't seem to sag much over time. Being straight rate springs, and not overly stiff straight rate springs, they aren't going to deal with extra weight as well as a progressive or dual rate spring typically will. But they can deliver a much better ride if your vehicle isn't heavy enough to need the stiffer springs.

No problem here... I do have some spacers, but not for sag. I just wanted some additional ride height.

The spring rates are on the lower side, so if you are running heavy and fully loaded, you are going to lose some height. But the springs ride great.
