What would be the avg lift gain with no winch and stock bumpers? I know the 2dr jeeps tend to gain alot. Dont remember seeing the numbers for the 4dr's

Alot of 4 door guys will go with the 3.5" springs for extra belly clearance.
But yes. 4 doors see close to 2.5" with those springs.
Doesnt going with 3.5" springs cause you to have to change/extend drivelines and such?

Just a 2.5" lift and was lookin at the rk springs. Just didnt know for a 4dr if it would push it higher than the 3" mark for requiring the more expensive changes.

I do plan to go with an aftermarket front/rear bumper. Just dont know if that'll be the same time i do the lift or not

I've got the RK 2.5 MaxTravel with Ace Midwidth up front and Ace Rear with Tire Carrier on the back, along with a 60lb Recon winch up front. I'm at 3" with Duratracs version of a 35. Some lift, some tire. I have been fully articulated and have not yet hit my drive shaft on the exhaust cross over. Thinking Tom Woods front drive shaft. Rear looks fine.

When I had my RK 2.5 Max Travel installed, I got 4" front, 2.5" rear. I have factory bumpers.

Note: I had a JKU Sport, so had shorter springs compared to a JKU Rubi.

RK springs run tall. Everyone I talked to about getting this lift recommended replacing the front driveshaft. I did replace it when the lift was installed.

3.5" would be suggested if you want to run 35" tires or larger.

I do also recommend either relocating the evap, or moving the skid (2012+) to the left a bit. Shortly after getting my lift, while wheeling, the rear driveshaft contacted the evap skid and tore the boot. I've been driving with it torn for about 9 months and no issues. I would recommend preventing this from happening though.
