i was just curious if there is anyone who is running a 2.5 inch lift that could post a photo of how it sits now and also offer some opinion as to how it does offroad. I know 2.5 inches isn't a huge lift, but was hoping it will still make it noticeably more capable than stock. Thanks!

That's still got a good bit of room under it for having 35s on it! That's a good looking jeep! The ground clearance was my biggest curiosity, looks like you gain a good bit. Nice Rig!

Yes with that lift and flat fenders you could run 37's no problem. I wouldn't go much more than that. The front drive shaft angle will be really bad.

Here's my '12 with AEV 2.5" kit with GCB's and 315/70-17 Cooper S/T Maxx.
This kit works awesome! Handles better than stock and rides great.
The tires did hit the plastic air damn underneath in some offroad situations. No big deal to trim.
I would definitely buy this kit again.

Here's mine with Mopar 2-inch Lift with Fox Shocks --which is really 3" in front and 2.f" in back.
passing off as a rubicon I see

Here is mine with a 2.5 Rock Krawler XFactor kit, Bilstein 5100s, stock wheels with Duratracs. She has perfect street/highway handling. Taking her off roading for the first time next week. But I'm sure she will do just fine.

This is a 2.5" Teraflex lift with spidertrax 1.5" spacers, I have been really happy with it. For my needs, its all I require for off roading, and I definitely noticed a difference in what I could clear with it on the trails. The ride is good as well.

Here's 2.5" and Smittybilt SRC flares with 35" Falken Wildpeaks.



Here's the same lift and flares on our other Jeep with 33" Cooper Discoverer ATP's.

2.5" Teraflex 33" Duratracs



I don't run a aftermarket rear bumper anymore so I re-gained some rear height then whats in these pics, but I do have a winch up front now, which surprisingly barely dropped the front.

Off road, zero complaints. I don't rub anymore like I did when it was stock height and 33's. For reference, same Jeep, same tires but stock suspension.

Love the flat fenders.
