Hello, I have the XR.. Went to Moab and was disappointed with the flex..It’s shock extended length. IIRC, front 3.6XR extended shock length is only .75” longer than stock Rubi. Any extended bump stop over that amount takes directly from shock travel.
Easy enough fix though, swap out the shocks.
The bump stops are metal tubes I believe you’d have to cut off. The tan jounce pad compresses, so you can basically ignore it.Hello, I have the XR.. Went to Moab and was disappointed with the flex..
Can you tell me exactly how I can get more flex? I want to keep the jeep about the same height if possible, but want more flex , nothing extreme ....
So I buy longer shocks, then what do I do about the bump stops, can I replace them with shorter ones ?
Sounds good, stick a tape on an XR and I’ll take the same photo of mine.I can get you a measurement tonight.
I know when @Jazzicon spoke with RK about installing the rear TB relo bracket as part of her 2.5” lift, they stated not needed on XR since TB is already raised. It also appears to be mounted higher in your pics based on the indentations in the bracket.Sounds good, stick a tape on an XR and I’ll take the same photo of mine.
Any difference you see in the photos above is due to the relative perspective of the camera position, and the XR is at full droop. Compare the brackets to the surrounding fixed elements like the bump stop pad.
Once I am done with the lift….waiting on shocks that are delayed in Portland ….I will let you know how everything lines up.
The XR bracket is clearly taller.I’d like to see verification of some of the statements in that video from another source, perhaps someone with an XR vin and access to the FCA parts system.
E.G. there’s a statement in the video that the rear axle track bar mount is raised and reinforced. Here’s two photos. One is the track bar mount from the video about the XR package. The other is my non-XR JLUR.
Interesting, with the MC kits they don't use a TB bracket - just adjustable TB's - so did not run into this issue. If they did raise it I would be really surprised.
