2014 Sahara Unlimited-18 inch Wheels/Stock Tires

Found a local Jeep Dealer that installed for $220.00 ( I supplied kit). 4 Wheel Parts wanted $300.00 and a couple of local garages wanted more. Discussed any possible warranty issue down the road with the dealer and they said "no problem". I felt good about using them should any warranty related problems occur.

I am happy with the outcome. 2 inch gain on the front and a little over an inch on the rear. Woud probably sit higher in the front if not for the Rampage Recovery bumper. Can't tell a difference in the ride.

After install.



Before install.

looks Nice! Was that the spacer kit or the premium spring kit?

Lighting is everything. It looks like you also went from Silver to Ice Blue.

Looks good.
Will be one of my first upgrades when I get mine.

Here's another picture for comparison. My Sahara (with TeraFlex Leveling Kit) on the left and a stock Sahara on the right. Both jeeps have 18" wheels and identical tires.

Look good, something for me to keep in mind when the time come to raise mine.

Looks awesome. So $220 for the install, how much for the kit? How much would you say was the grand total? Just so I know how much I'll be spending next week :D

Looks great. I did the same lift on my Rubi-X last week. I picked mine up off of ebay for $149 shipped.

If you have any skill with a wrench, and especially if you have access to an impact wrench, I highly recommend saving yourself some money and installing it yourself. Granted, I've done a few of these, but with the help of a friend and his airtools, we installed this kit in 1 hour and 10 minutes on jackstands in his driveway. That was start to finish and driving away. We weren't even really rushing, it just goes on that easy.

Looks great. That's not a bad price either. It's an easy install on your own if you have the tools but... if you figure on 4 hours (which is what it took me with my brother), that's only $55/hr. Really not bad. Congrats.

I love the look and will need the additional 1.5" for the tire/wheel combo I am looking at for my DD, never off-road, mid-life toy. But I like the factory rake too. Does anyone offer a 1.5" BB, non-leveling kit?

Got mine on Ebay for $65 minus the sway bar links. Did the install myself in about 2 hours including cutting the stock sway bar links and lengthening them.
