Occupation
Product Specialist for Cedar Performance
wheels: Fuel Offroad Vector 17x9 with 35x12s
lift: JKS 2.5in with HD rear coils and JKS JSPEC shocks

The lift and 35s netted me about 5 inches total lift. Im not sure how much it will settle as the lift is rated for the 4dr. With the HD springs it is a little stiff but it doesn't bother me and who buys a Jeep for a comfortable daily anyways.
JKS did a good job with the install instructions. One thing that wasn't mentioned that I ended up needing was a spring compressor. I needed the compressor to get the rear springs in place because the ebrake cables wouldn't let the rear axle droop enough to get them in. This lift requires you to do some drilling for the rear track bar relocation bracket. I suggest having a couple of good drill bits. Seems like it took me longer to drill those 3 holes for the relocation bracket than it did for me to install the rest of the lift.

Feel free to hit me up with any questions you may have. I am not new to suspension work. Im usually making cars low doing air ride installs (all of my other rides are bagged) but im positive that anyone with mechanical knowledge can install this lift. An alignment afterwards is a MUST.

Looks great! How's the ride with the 4 Door Springs, has it gotten a little less stiff?

I went 3.5 and needed spring compressors too but had to resort to old fashioned death trap ratchet straps.
