Finally had the Mopar 2 inch lift put on. All I can say is WOW! I measured the pre lift height and post lift height and it gained almost 3 1/2 inches (seems odd but the dealer said it was AOK) I planned on replacing the tires with 35’s in the fall, but I’m not sure I can wait. I do notice the dirt road I live on has smoothed out much more, and the pot holes are nothing now, but I feel a tad more in the steering wheel with the bumps. I did order a matching Fox steering stabilizer to see if that helps.

You may want to see where you are at on caster (hopefully close to the 5* mark) also, you can ask if they did it or just do it yourself - loosen all the CA's and give it a good back/forth and re-torque everything on the ground.
Check your tire pressure too.

Looks good!

Thanks for the help. He told me that the caster was 4.80 and kinda hedged on the on ground torque. I will loosen and torque as you recommend. Tires are at 36 psi, but I should be getting 35’s next week.

I would not let the let that dealer touch my vehicle again if he hedged on a very important point in the installation. He was being lazy and should know better. What else did he get lazy on while installing?

Looks nice! I’m getting the 2” Mopar lift and trying to decide on wheels and tires. Did you get yours yet? I’d love to see them and hear what your think of them :)
