If I install this kit onto a stock JK 2016 Sport with stock shocks and add one of your after market front bumpers will I need to go with heavy duty shocks?

J

  • When installing the Rough Country 2.5 in. Lift Kit and an aftermarket steel bumper, we do recommend shocks to help keep ride quality and handling.

I purchased the RC 2.5" lift w/o shocks, do I need to purchase a front brake line relocation kit? If I install a 71 pound front bumper will I need to add springs or shocks?

J

So I have this kit installed with the stock shocks. I'm looking to add a heavy front bumper and upgrade my shocks. Should I get new stock sized shocks and replace as is, or get shocks for a 2.5" lift? If I get the shocks for a 2.5" lift do I leave in the shock spacers from this kit or take them out and only leave the spring spacers? Thanks!

Is it necessary to replace the stock shocks while installing this lift kit. I have a 2016 Jeep Wrangler Willy's Wheeler Edition.

  • Hello, this kit comes with Shock Relocation Brackets so you will be able to use your stock shocks.

If I plan to replace my exhaust before or at the same time as this lift kit, will I still need the exhaust spacer kit, or is that only necessary for the stock exhaust system?

Stephan

  • Hello, the Rugged Ridge Exhaust Spacer Kit for 2.5-Inch+ Lift is to prevent the exhaust system from coming into contact with your driveshaft. Depending on the exhaust system you're planning on purchasing you may or may not still need this exhaust spacer. Please feel free to give us a call or send us an email so we can help you with your build. http://www.extremeterrain.com/contact.html

    Add great look for little cash!!

    It took me a little longer to do than others wrote, i was in my driveway, but is doable there. About 6 hours for me. Leave the day in case you run into trouble. It looks awesome and have gotten great attention and nice comments in this first week. I am shopping for the 35's now to finish the transformation. Haven't taken off road yet but should been fine.

    Rough Country Budget Boost 2.5 2009 JK

    I am a novice Jeeper, I have waiting until my original tires were becoming worn to get this lift so that I may upgrade to 35in tires. Out of the box the instructions are easy to understand and proceed step by step. Though a little vague at points they were generally on point, you tube help a lot as well. Although it was not stated spring clamps were invaluable. I rented them from a local auto zone for 50 dollars down payment and they gave me the 50 back when I was done with them, they were a life saver! Also my front brake lines did not have enough play to use the relocation brackets that came with the kit but the rear ones worked like a charm. Every write up I checked said that the fronts were not needed unless during aggressive articulation the line became taunt so I used drive up wheel ramps to make sure I was good and no issues. I measured my tire clearance before and after installation and true to form I had 2.5 inch increase, I’m not going to say it was easy but with a good floor jack, jack stands, spring clamps and all tools listed in the directions you should have no issues and the ride is outstanding definitely worth the money and effort.

    Looks Great! Easy job with the right tools

    Took me about 3 hours to complete in my friend's dad's auto shop. The front coil springs were the hardest to get back in, we used a tool to compress the springs before loading them back in. Overall pretty easy and straightforward. Just takes time and effort to get everything off and getting the coil springs in and out. However, the exhaust spacers are not required for this lift. You aren't altering the engine/exhaust's relation to the body, and if we had added the exhaust spacers it would've pushed the exhaust into the rear coil spring on the driver side. 10/10 would lift again. Now I just need the larger tires!

    This is exactly what I was looking for. I don't off road so I just wanted something to give me some height and a better stance. If you are looking for more show than go... then this is the perfect kit for you.

    Best bang for your buck

    Wanted a small lift for my 2015 JKU Sahara but didn't want to spend a lot of money. After checking on forums, and asking around, I went with the Rough Country 2 1/2" spacer lift with out the shocks. Arrived very quick, well packaged and easy to install with clear directions. I put it on in my driveway by myself in just under 4 hours with the help of air tools. Love the new look, and kept the factory ride on the highway, which keeps the wife happy. I Would definitely would recommend to anyone looking for a nice lift without having to spend a lot of money.

    2.5 inches in 4 hours

    This mod is not for the beginner, but is worth the time and money to install it. This 2.5 inches gave me the look I was worker for. I got the full 2.5 inches because I measured before and after. All the parts where there, coil compressor came in handy from the local parts dealer.
