The technical people can tell us how it’s lifted, but definitely looks lifted.
If its lifted, its only one of two ways;

1. Coil Springs - Need to verify part # on the XR against the known Rubicon part #'s
2. Spacer - I don't see one up there (but its hard to tell from the pic) and I doubt they would add a spacer.

Someone posted a few pages back that they thought the part # on the XR springs was the same as whats on one of the regular Rubicon versions. If thats the case, I am doubting there is a lift at all.

I wonder if 37's are gonna fit with the included Mopar tire relocation kit?
They should fit, VERY VERY likely they will fit if you go with K02's.... As the XR includes both the reinforcement bracket and the tire relocation bracket which moves the tire up and away from the tailgate.

Thanks, lol, KO2's run pretty small. I've got Yokohamas sitting in the garage waiting for the XR to show up. I was looking at that Teraflex bracket as an option, but I've still got my fingers crossed that the Mopar might work.

Man, this would be pretty sweet if we can slap some smaller running 37"s right out of the box. I'd flip the KO2's and get some Mickey Thompson Baja ATs

The Baja Boss A/Ts are a little taller than K02s so 37s may be a bit tight without more lift. I am waiting on a set of 35s to be delivered now. as soon as I get them mounted ill see how they compare to the K02 and Ridge Grapplers in the same size as i have run both.

Some initial info from FB via Scott

"Ya it's not the MOPAR lift. No one ever said it was. There are numerous springs across the JL lineup donuts possible depending how equipped that a lighter JL.with 35s could have the same spring as a heavier JL with 33s. The shocks are all unique."

So Diesel Rubi springs? And custom shocks...?

Maybe I’m dumb, but I can’t make that quote make sense.

here’s my attempt:

It’s not a Mopar lift, no one said it was. There are a variety of springs for all JLs. A lighter JL with 35s could have the same springs as a heavier JL with 33s. However all of them have unique shocks.

I was captivated by donuts.

Push down on the axle harder? I have pulled the front springs several times without unbolting the lower bump pad extensions I installed back when I put the 2.5" spacer lift on. Swapped to an icon 2.5" spring. Pulled springs to add 3/4" spacer after adding the winch. Pulled springs again to add rock krawler spring perches. Hit swaybar disconnect, unplug fad and locker wiring, unbolt shocks, droop out axle, have someone push down on the knuckle while you pull the spring over the lower bump pad.

Doing it on jack stands in the garage, my rotors were on the ground before I could get the springs over the bump stops. And I don't have the patience to mess around with putting the nut in the Mopar bump stop extension. Teraflex is adjustable in 1/2" increments without removing it, and it comes with a flagnut tool that holds the nut in place as you tighten it.

No need to suffer when there are better solutions for $150.

It doesn’t look very lifted. Curious to see it next to a normal Rubicon.
I was thinking the same thing. I was thinking it would have the Fox shocks of the Mopar lift. Does not look lifted. Those look like regular Rubi shocks.

They said from the beginning that they were specifically tuned shocks, not fox shocks

It definitely looks lifted. It looks to have about the same gap from the top of the tire to the fender flare as a non-xr rubicon.

Exactly what I was thinking...
