Hi folks, looking for some advice on what to choose. I have a 2013 JKUR and tow trailers in the summer, just under the max weight 2500 to 3200 depending on the trailer. Want to give myself a better ride and a little height, I don't do an rock crawling, just service roads and mild playing.

I was leaning toward the Rancho 2in Sport Suspension System as a kit but with the advertised 2"front and 3/4 rear I'm thinking my rake will be over corrected and towing a trailer will put my nose too high.

Now looking at building my own lift with the Rock Krawler 1.5" springs all around and paired with Fox 2.0 shocks (1.5-3"). Not sure if this will require Geometry correction brackets or not. I see some kits advertised with disconnects but my Rubicon stock disconnect should still be fine no?

I've done a bunch of reading on the forum and think I'm on the right track but some educated second thought would be greatly appreciated.

RK 2 1/2. Used a 1" spacer in the front and wedges in the rear. Trailers well with stock rubi shocks and I have put it to the limit weight wise. Probably switching out to rancho 9000s when it's time

You will not need geometry brackets with the 1.5” coils nor disconnects but you will want longe sway bar links.

I had a 1.5 RK frankenlift on my 2014 jkur and went the gamut on shocks ie rancho 7000MT, Rancho 5000X and bilstein 5100. you won't need anything geometry wise as the you won't get a ton of lift with the 1.5 in fact I would recommend going 2.5. Here is what it will look like.
