'07 MT JK 2-dr X, Nacho JLUR 4xe.
So I have my Nacho 4xe Rubicon on order. It'll be here soon enough and I'm planning some mods. I want to go with a Teraflex lift/Falcon shocks and a Teraflex tailgate reinforcement (I know that's supposed to be coming.) I have a 2-door manual JK I'm going to move some parts over from, including the front bumper/winch/driving lights, the wheels and tires, and putting the 4xe's wheels, tires and front bumper on the JK before I sell it. I'll be checking with the manufacturers to make sure the parts are compatible (they should be.)

I'm wondering what problems I'm going to have, similar to how some of the lift/spring kits didn't work on the diesel initially. I'm also wondering how I'm going to keep the weight down as I go -- she's a heavy girl.

Awesome wheel -- who made it? I have black Method Grids on my JK. I have a silver/blue motif going there -- blue would be sweet..

Some interesting comments in the FB post below about lift kits for 4xe, looks like Mopar tested their prototype on Rubicon trail.

Similar to the JL Diesel version from Teraflex they will have to come up with a 4xe version also to take into account for the additional weight etc...

Video below on the Diesel version:

Does anyone know if the existing JL Mopar snorkel for the 2.0 Turbo engine will work with the 4xe.
I know lots of comments will be coming on electricity and snorkels nevertheless I’ll want to attach my existing 2.0 Mopar snorkel if possible.

I'm wondering if my Diabolical Slipsteam will work due to the change to the rear seats. It seems like it should, but I'm worried there will be some random change to the shape of something that will make it incompatible without an updated piece from Diabolical. And then I worry it will be quite a while before they would be able to offer such a piece.
Guess I'll just have to wait and see!

What about just using a current 3.6 engine lift kit (heavier than the 2.0) and just add a 1/2” or 1” spacers in the front?

I wonder if jl Gobi rack will work 4xe. Since it has cowl mounts, the answer is probably no but I’m still hoping it can be adapted somehow. The rack wasn’t cheap, I would like to keep it when/if I get 4xe one day.

So far, the only suspension system that I've found that works for the 4xe is the Old Man Emu with heavy duty springs, intended to support a constant 600Lb load of gear. As I recall, the standard 4xe is 400Lbs heavier than the diesel and 700Lbs heavier than the V6, manual.

Have any of you found a 4xe specific lift, yet? I've read that Mopar is working on one, but has not released anything yet.

Based on this image below on the layout of the extra payload, I'm thinking it's the rear that will need the extra spring rate/lift - the front is probably going to sit around the same as the 2.0L with eTorque, that large electric motor and that battery pack that are in the rear will be where most of the extra weight is at.

This is fantastic news, on my Wrangler I have OME with the fantastic BP51, I can only move them by changing the springs ... I hope
