Sorry, I've read hundreds of posts and just need clarification:

The extreme package includes 1.5" of additional lift? If so, I assume this is the equivalent of installing the Mopar 2" lift because that's basically the net gain if you had a stock Rubicon. I see the larger bump stops, can't find a coil tag to compare Mopar part numbers, and the shocks look like the standard red shock.

I would hate to install the 2" lift kit only to find out it's the same height.

I installed the Mopar lift on my 2021 XR and got exactly 1" of lift vs. my stock XR. 37" Yokohama tires worked great with the kit and my tailgate! The shocks and springs on the stock XR are different than the stock Rubicon. Shocks are longer and spring numbers are different. Hope this helps.

Dale, did you gain/lose anything in the switch? I really like how the XR rides but I'm not a fan of the tire/rim look so I'll be selling those once I decide on the 37s/rim combo. I didn't want to do the 2" lift but it sounds like I'll need it to clear the 37s. Just odd that Jeep just didn't go with 2" lift preinstalled. Only netting 1" is painful :)
