    What does full articulation mean??? I'm trying to pick the right lift for my yj n don't know what it means......

    FB

    • Hello, Axle articulation is vertical wheel travel – as in, how far the axle can move up and down relative to the chassis. Articulation is what allows the vehicle keep all four tires in contact with the ground on rough terrain, which provides better stability and allows the vehicle to maintain traction. On a solid axle vehicle like a Jeep, as one side of the axle is forced up, the opposite side is pushed down as the suspension conforms to the terrain so that maximum traction and stability is maintained. It is one of the most important factors in determining if a vehicle can get over an obstacle.

    Clearance Will this 2.5in lift kit with a 1in body lift be able to clear 33in tires with full articulation?

    NHjeep

    • The Rough Country 2.5 in. Suspension Lift Kit w/ Shocks (87-95 Wrangler YJ) with a 1in body lift would allow for proper clearance to run 33in tires, however, you would not have full articulation. For full articulation you would need a complete 3.5in suspension lift. A great option would be FABTECH 3.5 IN. PERFORMANCE LIFT KIT W/ SHOCKS (87-95 WRANGLER YJ); Item #J101560, which can be found here: http://www.extremeterrain.com/fabtech-3-5-perf-shocks-k4022.html.

    • The Rough Country 2.5 in. Suspension Lift Kit will not typically require any additional components, however in rare instances, we have seen the need for a transfer case drop kit due to driveline vibrations.

      Lift kit

      Love the lift kit. Took a few days to put in but all in all wrath it. I ended up cutting off the old leaf springs and some of the U bolts. I do think putting longer brake lines how to smart I had to use two jacks and my high- jack what I bought with the lift kit what was a lifesaver. It's been three weeks and it rides great took it off road and it was a blast how buy again

      Dont buy

      First off my u-bolts were a quarter inch bigger and i called rough country they said call extreme terrain and get po-number, then i tried calling rough country again during buisness hours and i kept getting put on hold and went to voicmail once, never got a call back. Then the bottom leaf didnt have the center pin on center of leaf it caused the whole leaf to be hanging over the other leafs about a quarter inch making u bolts not seat correctly

      Higher Ground.

      Had to give my 92'YJ a 2.5 lift to accommodate the 33"x10.5" tires I decided to install. I must say it definitely gave my YJ a more aggressive appearance from it's original appearance. I also added a steering stabilizer while I was at it. It definitely gave it a different ride and handling. I haven't tried it offroad yet, I am sure it would do OK as it is sitting higher off the ground.

      Looks great...caused issues

      Timely shipping and overall great look for my '91 YJ. Install was reasonable (3 hours), but we did have the Jeep on a lift which made it much easier. This lift has created a major vibration between 35-50 MPH. Hoping the transfer drop will help, but that was not an expense I was anticipating. I think that if this result is the norm then the kit should include the transfer drop or at least tell you it's needed. I hope that fixes my issue...fingers crossed.

      The largest issue I have now is a small vibration which is probably due to the driveline angle.

      No more tired original springs and shocks.

      Excellent price for what you get. Put new life into my YJ. Just don't believe the instructions when it says 6-8 hours for install, that would be if your YJ came off of the showroom floor or lived a salt free life. I would definitely recommend this kit.

      Its a long read but worth it.

      This lift is a quick easy upgrade, IF you can get your old hardware off!! Start using P-B blaster NOW if you are even considering lifting your jeep, it will make your life much easier. As for the RC 2.5 lift, before the install everything was smooth, no bad vibes man... After install there was a very bad vibration between 30-50Mph, you could feel it through out the whole jeep. Contacted RC customer service, they were very quick to respond, the said to try to drop the transfer case a 1/4 inch and see if that helps, and if it didn't that I could order there 1 inch trans drop kit and that would fix the problem. The 2.5 lift at this time cost the same $449.95 anywhere you look, the SAME price as the 4 inch, which includes several more items like, lets say a 1 INCH DROP KIT. I Didn't go with a 4inch lift for fear of having to install an SYE kit which will run another $400-$500 by the time you include the CV drive shaft. I used some 1x2 rectangular tubing and made my own 1 inch drop kit, the 1 inch drop helped but there was still a vibration that was not there before. The only way I completely got the vibration out was the 1 inch drop along with 1inch motor mount lift ( I already had a 1 1/4 body lift on the jeep.) Just a heads up if you have a 1 1/4 inch body lift and add a 1 inch transfer case drop and have a 5 speed trans you are probably going to loose 2nd and 4th gear until you trim the tub closer to your console an cut out 1/2 an inch and re-drill and mount your shift boots. I am now in the process of ordering and installing a SYE kit for a 2.5 lift to do away with the transfer drop kit (No one wants to give up ground clearance) when i could have ordered the 4 inch lift and been time and money ahead. Side note it lifted a 1992 yj 4.0 front from 32in to 34 3/4 and rear from 33 to 35. this is after driving 50 miles and letting everything settle. the springs were well past being replaced, your here of people getting 4 inches out of a 2.5 inch lift there springs must have been setting on the bump stops when they started. I hopes this helps someone with there dreams of getting higher...
