    I just got the 2" Mopar lift installed on my 2-door JL Rubicon. I measured different things for comparisons afterward.

    I gained 1" more clearance between my tire and fender, but I believe I got only roughly 2.1" of lift from it.

    I went from the stock 33's (which actually measured 32") to Nitto 37's (which actually measure 35.75") and I ended up with 4" more ground clearance. (measured from the road to the bottom of my rock slider)

    I figure taking half the height difference in the tire is 1.875", subtracted from the total 4" gained = 2.125" (but I admit that math is generally not my thing, I could be wrong)
    Below is my jeep next to husband's still stock rubicon.

    Fort some reason, I cannot successfully edit my photo to NOT load sideways I apologize

    Assuming all things are equal, because I have no "before" pictures... I measured the front (the mentioned thread says 10.25" stock for a Rubicon) and mine came out roughly to 11 5/8" -- pushing that 11 3/4" mark.

    The rear I could not successfully get under.. I don't have a way to lift the jeep a little off the ground for me to get all the way under and hold a tape measure in one hand and a phone in the other. I tried... but it is all crazy looking (and also loading as a sideways picture so I will save you that hassle)

    If I load a portrait that is larger than 768x1024 it will automatically rotate to landscape. Here it is reduced to the aforementioned size.

    Im running the 2 lift and it netted at least 3 and clears the 37 BFG ko2 with zero issues

    Im adding LCSs and a track bar (highly recommended) so plan on that too, I've put 8k miles on my kit with both 35s and 37s on it

    Can you measure and take a picture? So far I think I am the only one with a picture that shows I got like 1.5" from my 2" Mopar on the front, and closer to 2" in the rear (but the rear is not pictured, I couldn't hold the measuring tape and take a picture while crawling under the jeep lol) But I wonder why mine would be so different. I have the OEM steel bumper on the front, no winch. OEM plastic bumper on the rear while I am bumper shopping.
