    Lift advice

    Hi Everyone. I currently have a 19 JLUR on 35ís no lift. Iím relatively new to wheeling. With that said, I am enjoying going out on the weekends and wheeling the Whipsaw trail up here in B.C. Canada.

    I am torn on whether I should install a 2Ē spacer kit or go with something like the Rancho 2Ē kit with new coils and shocks. We definitely donít have the rock trails like you guys do down there but we have plenty of areas to have fun. Also, I may end up getting 37ís later on down the road. Should I just get a budget spacer kit with shock extensions for now? Or should I spend the extra money for a kit with coils and shocks?

    Thanks in advance. I have learned a ton on this site so far!!

    Lift advice

    We wheel our JLUR on some hilly, rutted trails with 35s and no lift. Never had an issue so far. Have you had any issues with the trails you're running on your 35s?


    It's not just a Jeep, it's an amusement park on wheels.

    Ya. I get some pretty bad rubbing when I stretch it out.

    Save the money and go straight for some type of coil lift w/ shocks. The ride is substantially better than a spacer lift.

    I'm in same boat with mine. Currently on 35's and no lift. On normal trails no rubbing but where it gets really twisty or there are some pretty large obstacles it will rub pretty good.
    Pretty sure I'm going to go with a Synergy 2" lift paired with Fox shocks on mine. You can also look at the Dynatrac lift as well as the EVO 2.5" lift.

    From what I read you might as well go with a Rancho sport lift. Doesnít sound like itís too much more money.

    You can do it in the garage. I did mine in a long day. Went with EVO 2.5" with Fox shocks and could not be more pleased with it. Ride is better than stock, which is great. It is a daily driver. Pushing 20,000 miles so far with no problems.

    Pulled the trigger on the Rancho with adjustable shocks. Now I need to find some decent rock sliders
