Looks good. Any issues with install? Did you use the exhaust spacer kit?

No problems with the install, my dad wanted to participate, so it only took us about 5 hrs with just hand tools.. we both tackled our own sides..
everything lined up perfect, and didn't even have to adjust the steering wheel that sort of thing...

i did use the exhaust spacer, but after looking it, i didnt think u would really need it, but it did make for lowering the axel up and down for putting in the new coil springs a much easier task.

we both tackled the rear end , then went to the front,

i used 2 four tone jack stands, which went to 18 inches i believe, if u can get them taller i would, it did the job but which i had a couple more inches to play with.. most people put the whole thing on all 4 stands i did it wont just 2.. so that tells u the install went pretty easy..

didn't have to drill anything, either which was the first thing i loved about the lift.. gives the jeep a nice stance and makes it look much more aggressive.. next up bumper and light bar :)

Not quiet sure what ur trying to ask,,,

with the 2.5 a drive shaft is not needed... unless u went with a smaller drive shaft and no exhaust spacers.. but why go smaller on a driveshaft?
if ur going 3 or more, i would consider drive shaft


i would recommend exhaust spacers for the 2012 for any lift.. its needed.. chrysler made a weird exhaust design...

Looks good. You say that you didn't have to adjust your steering wheel afterward, did you loosen your track bars and control arm bolts prior prior to dropping the axles?
