So to help remedy the issue for now. I picked up the Teraflex Peformance Spacer lift kit and shock extensions. This kits has 3" spacer for the front and 2.5 spacer for the rear. This should help give some additional lift in the Jeep until the end of Summer when the Rebel Offroad King Coilovers should arrive.

Will keep it all clean and organized and sell it when the time comes for the coilovers.

Also picked up the Bleepin Jeep alignment bars and set of matching tape measures. This will hopefully get the tow end set correctly with the new tierod and save trip the the alignment shop or get close until the final suspension is on the Jeep.

Also put back the Steer Smarts trackbar on the Jeep for now. Just will avoid driving it to much until the Teraflex kit comes in next week.
Love the build and thread! It's a shame I just saw it now, I would've shipped you my spacer lift. :(

Did you have your rear bumper powder coated or just spray paint. I'm spraying it....OK results but not great.
I had it powder coated, the color is Evo Grey.

2012 Jeep JKU Sport
As a dad who bought a new 2012 JKU Sport, with the similar intention of passing it to my son when he reached driving age, I commend you sir!
My son has helped me with maintenance and some mods. Has gone off-roading with me too. And now that time has come to pass the torch. Assuming he gets a job. :) Need to pay something to get the Jeep, and insurance.
The best part is now I get to buy a new JL and start getting it ready to pass on to my daughter.

But yeah, slow down!! lol

Did some work..

Installed the Teraflex Peformance Spacer lift and the rear Steer Smart trackbar along with antirock rear sway bar. Also swapped out the Steer Smarts steering stabilizer to a King steering stabilizer, figured it looked better with King Coilovers on order. Just need to swap out the front sway bar now.. but another day.

The extra lift helped the clearance issues in the front with the trackbar, sector shaft brace and the diff cover... all appears to be good now. I have been eyeing the Motobilt's cage on their red Jeep JL they have been working on and posting pictures of. I would love to have custom cage and have it powder coated silver. My 2016 Rubicon I had custom cage done by Undercover Fab Works with custom led interior lighting. Motobilt is close to me, but unfortunately they don't do installs.. ugh..

Looking at ordering the Reid Knuckles, Dynatrac Ball Joints and RCV one (1) piece axle shafts maybe next... will see.

Already have the FAD delete plate on stand by to get rid of it for the one piece axle shaft upgrade.

I still need to order the Teraflex IR Long Arm kit to get ready for the Rebel Offroad coilover setup.

Still would like to run a custom cage setup like I did on my 2016 Rubicon that Undercover Fab Works made.

ok maybe im just new to this but this seems a bit nuts
What was wrong with the Mopar lift and 37's like so many others? Why all this extra gear?
And another thing I never understood, why spend the money on a rubicon to tear it all apart and throw it all away. Why not just buy a sport since you are replacing damn near everything?

I bought my first Jeep Rubicon Diesel literally last night so im actually asking not being a wise guy :)
