        5 Top Rated Questions

        With this kit on my 2016 JKU Rubicon do i need the exhaust spacers if i do not go off road? Just a daily driver with highway use mainly.

        • Yes, 2012+ JK's do need an exhaust spacer for lifts of 2.5"+, even if not off-roading.

        Helpful (3)

        Can I take off the bump stops if I install a 2.5 lift with 33 tires

        • Removal of the bump stops would not be recommended to prevent the suspension from bottoming out or taking the tires into the fender flares.

        Helpful (1)

        Is the front spacer on this kit larger to remove factory rake and level the Jeep?

        • Yes, this kit will provide a level lift.

        If I buy this 2.5in lift kit for my 07 wrangler unlimited, do I need any additional components? Or just this kit itself?

        • On 2012-2018 JKs, an exhaust spacer kit would be required. As your JK is from 2007, you would not need this part. With 35" tires, rubbing could occur with extreme articulation. If you're planning on running 35" tires on factory wheels, double check the clearance between the front tire, lower control arm, and sway-bar links.

        Do I need to buy the 2.5 inch sway bars? Most of the kits have you moving the rear sway bar to the front and you get new sway bars for the back.

        • When installing this Rough Country 2.5 in. Lift Kit, new sway bar end links would be required.

            Good lift.

            Just like described, fast delivery, solid product. Lifted the jeep and eliminated rubbing with the 33" Toyo tires. Same stock ride (as I did not replace shocks or springs). Easy installation (took me longer as I did not have proper tools) did it by myself in my garage. I would recommend for an easy budget lift. Extreme Terrain is a good offroad supplier. 2015 Rubicon.

            Perfect for 35’s

            I wasn’t sure if these would give enough lift but they are perfect for 35’s. Ride is pretty similar to stock until I hit about 75 and ride quality drops a bit, but not enough to matter. Had shop install for $150.

            Lift took almost 3 hours to install with 2 people. I would recommend several jack stands and 2 jacks. Watch the videos, easy and straightforward.

            The Rough Country 2.5 lift without shocks worked perfectly for BFG- LT285/70/17 with 17x9 Ultra Hunter rims. It gave my Jeep the look and clearance I wanted without sacrificing the ride quality for my daily driving. Highly recommend.

            Great Buy!

            Gave the extra lift for bigger tires and didn't break the bank. 4-6 hour installation with 2 people. Installation fairly easy, just make sure you have a spring compressor (auto parts stores will loan) Looks great, rides great!

            This kit is a great starting point to build your lift kit with. Purchased with other individual supporting pieces necessary for a lift this was a great way to keep my budget in check until I’m ready to upgrade to longer shocks and actual lift springs

            Easy Lift

            I rated this four starts for two reasons. The bolts in the kit for the front shock extenders were too big (1/2" vs. 7/16"). A trip to the hardware store solved this problem. The relocation plates for the brake line were unusable without damaging the brake lines. Took the Jeep on an intermediate level trail ride the day after installing the lift, and it worked without a problem. The trail included two sharp breakovers and a few deep mud stretches. Never center hung. Very happy with the final result.
