Can we see some pics of Mopar 2" lift on a 2 door JL?

thanks for the help. How much lift did you approximately get if you remember?

I’ll get the spring perches. Hoping the mopar springs work well with the AEV kit, hopefully softer ride and lowers it down slightly
For reference this was with a 2.5 spacer lift

Rancho 4 door springs were 2" higher than that

Didn't measure but Mopar springs are somewhere in between

The mopar with rancho shocks slightly better than spacers with stock springs/shocks. The rancho springs/shocks were terrible but the springs were way too stiff for a 2 door.

Good day all, so i have been thinking of getting this for my 2019 JL 2 Door. I have seen a lot of different video installs for this lift and other similar lift sizes. My question is, for the control arm that has the brake line connected to it. Do you remove that bracket or re-install? As I said, I have seen videos where they remove it, one way or another and some keep it. The instructions say keep. Thoughts, ideas, thanks

I got rid of it, you are getting more flex than stock, so keep it less restricted and remove it.

Best way i found to remove it, leave it bolted to the control arm and use vise grips to grap the inside lip and slowly bend up and back untill you free the line, go slow and be gentle

Thanks, that's the way most seem to remove it. One site says use a dremel on it. That's a little to close to the brake line for me.

2019 JL Wrangler Sport S 3.6L Auto 2 door, 2.5" lift, 35s
Just installed 35's on Mopar 2.5" lift. After the tires installed overall ride height about 4.5" above stock. Really enjoying this setup both on and especially off-road. Highly recommended. However, I won't consider any larger wheels on my Sport S due to the 3.45 diffs. Still, the 8-speed Auto appears to handle this arrangement just fine.
