which Fox SS did you have? was it the Thru-shaft design? (other versions have been reported to cause a pull to one side; something Fox acknowledged, but says they have now fixed.)

know that the Mopar diesel lift may be good for more than a couple of inches; it brought my Willys up 4.4" in the front, and 3.2" in the rear (measured after only a couple weeks and a few hundred miles of settling). it's enough that you may want to budget for a couple of adjustable Track Bars to get the axles back under the vehicle where they belong.


That's one of the first things I tried, had a fox 2.0, that didn't help. So you recommend a mopar or AEV 2.5. Wouldn't that be too high of a lift for 35's?

lifts-- mopar 2.0 for daily driving

AEV 2.5 dualsport for lots of gear, bumpers, winch, etc.
You have to decide what's right for your set up.

Need? Absolutely not. I'm on 35s now with no lift. I think it's too low though, especially in the front. I'm real close to pulling the trigger on the Clayton 2.5" Overland lift. I know they are working on 2" springs but no release date yet.

I am getting ready to pull the trigger and that Clayton Overland kit is my front runner at the moment. Being honest with myself I know I will end up on 37's eventually.

Thanks. If I'm being realistic, it is fine. I just want a little more clearance for the little offroading and camping I'm planning with the wife.
So the first pic is before I added the winch and the RSE steps. It did settle a bit after I added those items. The RSE steps are about 70 lbs each!

I keep thinking I'll end up on 37s one day as well. Maybe sooner than later if I get tired of the m/t tire noise! The wife said I could go ahead and order the lift but I keep seeing the skipped leg day comment so I think that's what's making me hesitate. But then I think I'll be fine with all the weight I plan on adding. Decisions decisions!

I think AEV lifts are designed for additional weight.

I know Mopar is working on their 2.5 inch lift kit for the Diesel but wont be available anytime soon.

Anyone running another lift that works for the Diesel? I'm looking for a 2 to 3 inch lift for my JLURD but I don't want to wait until the Mopar ones become available.
I used the mopar 2" lift on my '21 rubicon and it lifted the rig 3"...

I have 2021 JL Rubicon with the diesel motor.

I need budget lift kit to make a stand in while I wait on the King Coilovers to come in. I am having some interference with the Steer Smart trackbar and the Motobilt diff cover so I need some lift (Stock height currently) on the Rubicon to give some additional clearance so I can drive my Jeep while I wait on the coilobers to come in.

Looking at the Teraflex 2.5" spacer and bump stop kit with shock extension. Does anybody have any experience running this kit on the JL Rubicon Diesel variant?

Plan to run the kit until the end of summer and then sell it to a good home.

I have the terraflex 1.5” leveling kit. It’s a 1.5 spacer in the back and 2”spacer in the front. It was cheap, easy install and looks good with factory tires. Not the same kit you are looking at but it’s a data point for you. I’m going with an MC 2.5 and 35’s once my stock tires are near end of life.
