    Gained 3.5” on a 2” lift???

    Hi Guys. I installed the Rancho 2” sport lift on my JLUR today. I was only able to get the front done. Doing the rear in the morning. It measured 24.25” from center of wheel to fender before the lift. It now measures 27.75”

    I realize it will settle some but would it settle that much? It was a fairly easy install but now I’m second guessing due to the height difference.

    Do you have steel bumpers and winch on your rig yet?

    Yes. The front was sagging with the bumper and winch. That would account for the height difference!! I’m sure the rear will gain 2.5” and it will settle at 2”.

    Did you need a spacer to level it? How do you like it? Thinking about pulling the trigger on it soon. I have the steel bumper and am going to put on the warm mid bar and my winch. Debating if I need a spacer to keep it level????

    No spacer needed. I have a full width steel bumper and 9500lb winch with cable. It levelled out great!! Installed it in my garage on jack stands. All together took about 5-6hrs.

    Rides great. I bought the geometry correction brackets but I don’t think I will need them. Will probably install them anyway though.

    It isn’t unusual. The Jeep looks great, and if you are happy with the ride that’s all that matters. If it’s flighty, you may want to add adjustable control arms to correct your geometry.
