Hi, guys. So today we're checking out the Mammoth 1.5-Inch Front Leveling Kit, fitting all 2007 to 2018 at JK Wranglers. So one of the easiest and most affordable ways to get a little bit of height on your Wrangler is to add a leveling kit or a spacer lift, and this option by Mammoth is going to do just that. Now, this is going to consist of two spacers that are gonna go above your front springs. And that's gonna do a really good job at leveling out the rake in your hood, making a more defined stance with your Wrangler. And it's also going to open up some room in that front wheel well for a larger wheel and tire and some better articulation if you do take your Jeep off-road. Now, this is really gonna be for that Jeep owner who is looking for a little bit of height on their Jeep, but doesn't wanna break the bank.Now, this is gonna be a very simple, very bare-bones kit, but, again, it is going to add a decent amount of height to the front-end of your Jeep, and again, it's going to create a more defined stance. Now, I would like to mention that this kit is only going to accept up to a 33-inch tire, so if you are looking for a leveling kit and to upgrade your tires, I would definitely recommend a 33. Now, it's gonna sit very comfortably inside that wheel well area. You are gonna have some room to work with as far as articulation. So you will have a little bit of functionality there. But for a 35-inch tire, I would definitely not recommend that. You may be able to bolt it up, or you're not gonna have a lot of room to work with, and you will make contact with that front fender and you're also going to have a little bit of rubbing. So if you are looking to upgrade your tires with this specific leveling kit, then I would definitely recommend a 33.Now, like I said before, this is going to be incredibly affordable, coming in at roughly $100. So, again, this is going to be really good for somebody who really does not want to break the bank, they wanna keep it simple, and they just wanna get a little bit of extra height on the front-end of their Jeep. Now, in comparison to some other choices on the page, a lot of lift kits are using usually going to consist of different components. More expensive options in comparison to this are usually just gonna have a little bit more to work with. They may come with a front and a rear spacer, they may come with end links, or they may come up with shocks or shock extensions, kind of just adding to the list of things in the kit, which is going to up that price point. Now, with this, it's going to get the job done and it's going to be incredibly simple as well. So if you're looking for a no-fuss kit, you don't want really any of those extra components, and you're just looking to get started by lifting your Jeep 1.5 inches in the front, then this is going to be great choice.Now, as far as install is concerned, I'm gonna give this a two out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. You're gonna need some pretty basic hand tools and probably about two hours' worth of your time. So, speaking of that install, let me walk you through that right now.The tools that I used for my install were a pneumatic impact, an electric impact, a dead blow, a ratchet, an extension, but 21-millimeter and 18-millimeter socket, an 18-millimeter swivel socket, and a 10-millimeter deep socket.So the first couple of steps of this install include getting the Jeep up in the air. Whether you're on a jack and jack stands, or if you are on a lift, like I am with a couple of pole jacks, you wanna make sure that you're supporting the axle because we will have to lower it down. You also wanna make sure that the front wheels and tires are off. And if you are on a jack and jack stands, I would recommend chocking in the rear wheels. But our first step is going to be to take off our sway bar end links, or at least to just disconnect them from the axle. So we can take off the bottom bolt for our sway bar end link. We don't necessarily have to take off the top, considering that we just need to disconnect this from the axle so we can lower it down. So I'm gonna take an 18-millimeter swivel socket on the passenger side and then I'm gonna take an 18-millimeter wrench and we can take that off.Then we can do the same thing on the other side. Next, we can disconnect our front track bar using a 21-millimeter socket. It's gonna be a flag now on the back. That is gonna shift the axle a little bit, but it's gonna allow us to drop our axle. Next, we can remove our lower shock bolt using an 18-millimeter socket and wrench. Now, in order to get this out, you may have to adjust the height of the axle. We're gonna loosen that bolt up. If it needs a little bit of help, you can just take a dead blow. And the other thing that we wanna make sure to do while we're over on this side is disconnect our brake line bracket. We have one up at the top on the frame and one down on the spring perch. I'm gonna use a 10-millimeter socket for both of those, but I'm also gonna use my impact wrench for this top one. You wanna make sure to save these. And then just pull out our brake line bracket. This is just gonna give it enough slack so when we drop our axle we're not damaging this brake line because we definitely don't wanna do that. If this does get damaged in the process, you will need to replace them. So once we are finished with the brake line and the shock over on this side, we can do the same thing on the other side, and then we can start lowering our axle.At this point, what we can do is start lowering down our axle so we can take out our springs. So I'm just gonna lower my pole jacks here. And we just wanna make sure that it's even, keeping an eye on our brake lines, even though they are disconnected at the bracket. You also wanna keep an eye on the breather hose, on the differential. I usually just like to pop that off. There's no clip or anything. It's just a tube that you're gonna just pull back. And then we can just lower this down and you'll see the spring start to separate at the top. You can usually just do this one by one, but once you have enough room, you can wiggle the spring out on either side. Now, one spring might be a little bit more difficult than the other. So just keep that in mind. It's usually the driver's side, but you can even kind of rotate the spring, move the sway bar if you need to, and even pull down on the axle if you need to.So, last but not least, once we have the springs out, we're just gonna take out this isolator as well, and we can do the same thing on the other side. So what we can do next is add our spacer as well as our isolator. You wanna make sure that the isolator is on the bottom. This is what's going to just hold the spring and kind of cushion it in between this spacer here. Just pop this in place. And that should stay kind of in place. We're gonna put the spring in, and that's gonna push everything to the top, but the isolator is gonna kind of keep it on the spring perch here. So then we can take our spring and just kind of repeat that process in reverse, push that up to the top. You wanna make sure that the spring's pigtail is sitting in that little cutout on the spring perch. On the passenger side, it's gonna be on the front. On the driver, it's gonna be on the back. But then we can kind of just start to compress the spring and then we'll do the same thing on the other side and start reconnecting everything.You may have to tinker with the height of the axle in order to get the second spring in place. And you may have to actually pull down on the axle at the same time. Now that our spacer is in and our springs are in, what we can do at this point is just start reconnecting everything that we took apart in order to drop the axle to get the spacer in. So I'm gonna start with our brake lines and our shock, and then we can do the same thing on the other side and then get into the other stuff. So starting off here, I'm just gonna reposition this bracket inside the spring perch. Then we can take that 10-millimeter bolt, secure that bracket down. We can tighten that up with our 10-millimeter socket and we can secure that top bracket with the factory bolt as well, tightening that up with a 10-millimeter socket. Then we can secure shock. Now, again, you're gonna have to tinker with the height of the axle in order to get this lined up, but once it's lined up, we can take our factory bolt, put that through, secure it down, and then tighten it up with an 18-millimeter socket and wrench. Next what we can do is reconnect our sway bar end links. Again, you might have to tinker with the height of the axle in order to get these installed, but we're gonna be reusing our factory hardware to do so. We can tighten it up with our 18-millimeter socket and wrench. And then we can repeat the same thing on the other side.So the last step of this install is to reconnect our track bar. However, we wanna do that while the Jeep is on the ground. It's gonna make it a little bit easier. And in order to reconnect it, we do have to shift the axle. So we'll need to move the steering wheel while there's weight on the Jeep. So, at this point, what we can do is put on our wheels and tires and then we can reconnect our truck bar. So our last step, once the Jeep is on the ground, is to reconnect our track bar. So it may be helpful to have somebody in the driver's seat turning the steering wheel back and forth in order to line this up. Once you have the bolt in and the flag nut installed on the back, we can tighten it up with a 21-millimeter socket. I also recommend a extension just to clear the drag link here.So that's gonna wrap it up for my review and install. Make sure you like and subscribe for more products and videos just like this.
