Thanks. That's the approach I was considering if I jump to 37s. I'm already geared to 4.88 and and I have about 18k miles on the 35s (cheap pro comp tires) so it is tempting!

My lifetime warranty covered the issues I was having with traction control, ABS, and cruise it was one of the wheel speed sensors that had gone bad.
Hello, I just bought a 2017 jku hr with the 4" mopar lift from the dealer I have been having problems now for 2 weeks and I still don't have my jeep. They have put in a new front axel and now they are taking about new stearing. the jeep still pulls to the left.can you please give me the contact information to Jennifer Holychuk maybe she can help me.

Thank you

after the dealer installs the lift can the jeep be driven with stock wheels and tires until I choose new ones?

Sure you can... it'll just look like a body builder who always skips leg day.

So i just got 450 miles on my 2017JK with the 4" lift and 35's...coming down a big incline on interstate at about 78 mph the steering started to shake like crazy, so i gently touched the brakes and i twitched to the left and a orange warning light flashed, i was to busy changing my underwear and holding on to see what popped up but it disappeared straight away..its never done that before. but it has not really gone through steady curves on the interstate without correcting the steering throughout the bend.It jsut thought " its a jeep thing" ..silly question now..could it be the dreaded death wobble?

Pretty cool in my opinion.

I'm getting the mopar 2.5 lift installed at my dealer, since they said everything would be covered under my lifetime warranty. They said they could make it in writing, so I won't have to worry.

That was probably your traction control, or what's call the electronic stability control light. That's just your Jeep adjusting itself as you lose traction. I could be wrong, but that's my assumption. Happens sometimes when I hit a bump on the highway with speed.

I just bought the 4" kit and have a couple questions about the track bar brackets. Do they do a good job of centering the axles under the Jeep or should I buy adjustable track bars now? Also, if I go with the adjustable track bars where do I mount the steering stabilizer since in the instructions it shows it boots to the new track bar bracket? Thanks

Yes! I've been driving almost a year with stock Rubicon wheels and tires with this lift. I'm not getting 35's until I get back to the mainland and come into enough money to regear at the same time.

The light was most definitely the traction control...mine does it every time I hit some lumpy road at highway speeds.

The 4" is covered under that warranty too. I've already had some warranty work done since installing this lift.

Oh I'm sure, being made by mopar and all. 4" is a bit more than what km looking for. I'm sure it'll look and ride really nice.

I got the actual lift kit on Amazon through a place called Auto Parts Wholesaler for $1790.00 with free shipping which I didn't think was too bad.

Once my lift goes on - I'm driving on the stock 33's to my tire/wheel shop to have the 35's put on.

Thanks,

They will not flash the computer to reflect the bigger tires/wheels or gear ratio change for free. You will need to purchase either the AEV ProCal or the SuperChip Flashpaq To have this done. Both are super easy to use and it can be done within in minutes before you drive off the lot in your newly lifted JK. I personally have the Superchip version and I'm very happy wth it. Let me know if you have any questions about it.

As a side note, I shopped around the internet for the best price on my tires. My dealer matched that price and saved me an extra trip to a tire shop and saved me time as well. Some people have a man crush with their tire shop and will only buy from them, but I would rather save the hassle and time if it's a wash on the price or f I can save a few dollars.

Sounds like it will be a nice setup - I went with a similar setup and I'm very happy with it.

Keep in mind that every tire manufacturer produces "nominal" sizes. It's kind of like buying lumber. The stamp on the wood says 6x6, but it's actually 5.75" x 5.75". My 37" BFG KM2s sit at 35.5" tall when installed at the tire pressure I like to run for daily driving. Buying a set of 37" Toyos will have a different size from that as well. If you are concerned about the actual height of your JK, you might want to ask some forum users if they have the same lift and tire/wheel size combo you are looking to do and see how high they sit.

I would get adjustable lower control arms and lose the cam bolts that come with the Mopar lift. You can get away with just the front, if $$$ is a concern - but it's really worth it in the long run to do the front and rear right off the bat and avoid the cam at all costs.

Thanks Rusty.

Wonder if the tire shop has a flash pak on hand? I'll find out - if not, than I have another reason to buy a tool.

My tire shop is a long time client and good friend.
They always treat me well and I don't need to leverage them much. I hear you though - need to make sure costs are as low as possible.

This my first JK/JKU lift, but I have done or helped with a lot of YJ, TJ, and Cherokee lifts, so I am familiar with the general lift tricks. I am still learning as I go with the JK/JKUs. I went with the JKS control am drop brackets instead of the cam bolts. I had all the arms adjustable on my last TJ and the maintenance was ridiculous on all those joints. I figured that this Jeep is going to be mainly a street Jeep I don't need as much flex or spend the extra time on maintenance.

I still haven't gotten around to installing my kit. I have been waiting on Mopar to figure out what they are going to do about the damaged threads on the inner drag link. After being jerked around for over a week by Mopar I contacted Auto Parts Wholesale on Amazon where I bought the kit. I emailed them late on Tuesday night and they had the part out by 8 the next morning. I got the part last night and can't say how pleased I am with Auto Parts Wholesale. Mopar was acting like replacing the $160 drag link was going to bankrupt them. So now it looks like the install will be in a couple weeks.

I did decide to eliminate both of the track bar brackets. I was going to use the front one since the steering stabilizer bolts to it, but I ended up cutting the front track bar bracket to kind of resemble the Poly Performance bracket. I also am upgrading the track bar bolts to grade 8 9/16" bolts since the stock bolts have a bit of slop in the stock frame and axle holes.

OK, I'm installing mine now, have a question about the new control arms, are they supposed to be shorter than the original? It doesn't look right. The pinion is pointing about 45 degrees up and the axle spring mount is facing forward. It got dark before I could really look at it better. I think I can twist the axle a little, kind of hard on jack. Just want to make sure everyone else got shorter control arms. Here is a pic to the original (long one) and the one from the kit (short one).

Unfortunately, I don't have an answer for you because I used Metalcloak adjustable control arms on the front and the rear for better alignment. I also went that route to avoid the cam bolt in the front that comes with the kit. If it's not too late, and you have the money, it will certainly be worth it for you in the long run. At least do the front if you don't want to spend the money for both.
