So I found a lift for sale from a guy in my club (he upgraded to a Metal Cloak 3.5") 2.5" Teraflex with shocks about 2 years old plus Rough Country adjustable lower control arms and I think a track bar. But it's 'missing' some parts that I'm pretty sure I'll need before I can install and I want to double check with the experts here to make sure I've got my shopping list correct. (I've attached a photo of what he's selling) This came off an 08 JKU and will be going on my 14 JKU.

based on that - it looks like I'll need the following?


2 - Front Upper Bumpstops
1 - Retainer kit for Rear JK springs
1 - JK Exhaust Spacer Kit for 2012 Driver and Passenger
1 - Rear Brake Line Extension Kit JK
1 - JK Wrangler Rear Lower Bumpstop (sold in pairs as a kit)
1 - JK Rear Swaybar Links 2.5-4" Lift

and since I'm under there I should probably also add the Northridge bolt upgrade kit

Looks like you got the list right.

I think your list is good... Although you can make the bump stops for cheap if you have any fab capability.

You also might need to drill a new mounting location in that bracket...

I should be picking up everything in the photo this Sunday - so any things like dimensions or measurements I can take care of after that.

and from MC's site I'm guessing this is the bracket we're discussing?

Yes, but the one you are picking up appears to be the version before the additional hole was added. You can see on their website that they added a hole for use with the stock track bar or track bars bent in the stock configuration.

ahh that's the lower hole I see on their site then?

cool
Yes, that's the hole for using a track bar that doesn't look like a snake...

I think you could easily introduce your bracket to a new hole. :happyyes:

I have a TeraFlex lift. Looks like you are missing front and rear bump stops and the rear brake line brackets.

Picked it up yesterday morning - the bracket does have the 2nd hole in it for the stock track bar so I should be good to go with that still
