Recently bought the Teraflex exhaust spacer kit for my 16 JKUHR. I noticed it said on the site required for 12 and up models. On the 16, I noticed we don't have the cross member mentioned in the video and there's a lot of clearance between the driveshaft and the exhaust.

I'm sure many of you have already lifted your 16 models. Any issues with contact?

I'm partially complete with my full suspension lift and will start the front this week.

Install the lift on the Front end then when your installing the springs and the suspension is at near full droop, take a look, you will be contacting the exhaust crossover with the driveshaft.

Nothing has changed with the 2016's, if your installing a 2.5 or higher lift, it is good insurance, in some cases, you need a new driveshaft even with an exhaust spacer...

Exhaust spacers are needed, when the Jeep is at full droop it will rub the exhaust. No difference in 2016 compared to any other 2012+ wrangler.
If you never go off road it might be ok, but its cheap insurance to make sure you don't rip the DS boot.

Yes the 2016 has the crossover and yes the driveshaft can hit the exhaust. It has nothing to do with lift height, it's all about your shock length. If you keep the stock shocks you should be fine. If you get longer travel shocks you will hit at full droop/full flex.
