Thank you for choosing Rough Country for all your suspension needs.
Rough Country recommends a certified technician install this system. In addition to these instructions, professional knowledge of disassemble/reassembly procedures as well as post installation checks must be known. Attempts to install this system without this knowledge and expertise may jeopardize the integrity and/or operating safety of the vehicle.
Please read instructions before beginning installation. Check the kit hardware against the kit content list on this page and the kit layout on the back page. Be sure you have all needed parts and know where they go. Also please review tools needed list and make sure you have needed tools. As a general rule, the taller a vehicle is, the easier it will roll. Seat belts and shoulder harnesses should be worn at all times. Avoid situations where a side rollover may occur.
Rough Country makes no claims regarding lifting devices and excludes any and all implied claims. We will not be responsible for any product that is altered.
This system was developed to provide a level stance to the Jeep after it is lifted. You will note that the front lift is 2.5” and the rear lift is 2”. This is intentional and is the look most often requested. Also you will note that this lift does not modify the front or rear track bar or its mounting points. This will result in what is generally considered an insignificant shift in both the front and rear axle of approx 1/4 of an inch. Rough Country offers an optional rear track bar bracket to address this. Please call your nearest Rough Country dealer to inquire.
This suspension system was developed using a 285/75R17” tire with factory wheels. If bigger/wider tire are used with the factory wheels or factory offset wheels you must carefully check the clearance during turning between the tires and the lower control arm and the front sway bar link before driving. If you have any questions concerning the design, function, and correct use of our products contact us at 800-222-7023.
IMPORTANT NOTES : The draglink must be adjusted to the center steering wheel BEFORE the vehicle is driven. Failure to do so will cause a computer error in the Jeep’s traction control system.
On Automatic equipped vehicles; due to use of an oversize driveshaft from the factory and inadequate factory clearance it may be possible for the front driveshaft to come in to contact with the automatic transmission pan tearing the factory boot and rubbing on the shaft. Generally this occurs during heavy articulation when front sway bar links are disconnected and longer shocks are installed. If this is found to occur, the proper procedure would be to replace the oversize factory shaft with an aftermarket smaller diameter shaft to increase clearance between the transmission and front driveshaft. Rough Country does offer this driveshaft if needed.
