2018 JLRU. 2.5" Rough Country coil lift
Went up the hill today to check some clearance.
2.5” RC lift 37” BFG KO2 Stock wheels. I turned the steering stops 2 turns each side.
Looks like I need about 1” of bumpstop in the rear but everything else clears just fine. I’m really happy
I can keep my wheels without any spacers. This JL turns so tight it seems better than my JK did. I couldn’t even tell I turned the bolts out. Some pics. All pics the Jeep was on the bumpstops and fully cranked to each stop.

It did but with 37s in the rear it’s just barely touching on the backside of the rear tire in the wheel well plastic. Now I’m sure I could leave it alone but another little bit of Bumpstop won’t hurt.

Did you know there are holes drilled in the sides of the RC rear bump stop extensions so you can flip it on it’s side and it’ll give you that extra inch you are wanting? Just unbolt it and flip it on its side and you are good to go.

I was going to do i the first time but i wanted to try without it first. I was trying to achieve as much up travel as possible. I have since been too lazy to get back underneath. LOL It hurts getting old.

Hey!

I'm running 2.5" Rock Krawler X Factor suspension, Falcon shocks, 25" Grabber X3's. Looking to do 37" K02's now for the bump in size and reduction in weight (71lbs) my 35" Grabber X3's are 78lbs!

Did you reinforce your tailgate to run the 37" KO2 on the back? Or did it just mount up and go?

Also, did you end up putting some bump stop? I don't want to rub :).

Thanks man!

I didn’t use any tailgate reinforcements. I also added no bumpstop. I did adjust my steering stops a few turns with stock wheels.
