I had the Mopar 2” lift installed on my 21 Rubicon. I gained 2.5” on all 4 corners so unlike after market lifts it’s not leveled. I can run 37’s onI know you get more lift with it. I just didn't think it was that much. I know the Extreme Recon package doesn't seem much more lifted then the standard Rubicon but I'm finding out it's a different set up then the 2 inch Mopar lift.
Too many different things Jeep has going on right now. Lol. My apologies.
So would the Mopar 2 inch lift be good for 37s on a Rubicon?
Sounds like it went something like this:Questioned whether I should have ordered the XR package, now I'm glad I didn't. It's an afterthought, not an engineered design.
Add ~$500-700 for tailgate reinforcement and spare tire kit.
Total ~ $5,000
- Mopar lift: $2,000, installed
- Five new wheels and 35-inch tires $3,000, minus $1,000 for your takeoff wheels and tires = $2,000
- Re-gearing: $1,000
- Fender flash: priceless!
Factory cost for XR = $4,000, minus any discount you might get off MSRP
Pros of XR:
Pros of DIY:
- Less total cost
- Covered by warranty
- Counts towards resale
- You get to choose any lift you want
- Looks like you get more lift from a Mopar lift than from that XR lift
- You get to choose any wheel and tire combination you want
- If you already own a Rubicon, chances are it will be cheaper to upgrade than to trade it in
