Do I need to install any other components with my mopar 2 inch lift other than what comes in the box? I’m running a 19 rubicon Jl with 315x75x17 ko2 and fuel 17 inch wheels.

I would need a step ladder to get in and out plus a roof rack to store it on.

I would suggest the following: adjustable lower control arms, front track bar, and probably a rear track bar bracket. Oh.. and I would also add front coil spring isolators. Apparently Mopar has upgraded the isolators, but I would spend the $30-$50 for aftermarket. To be safe;)

Measure height of your rig before and after lift and if you get over 3 inches you’ll need extra parts. Front and rear adjustable track bars to center your axles, and adjustable front lower control arms to increase caster because the fixed ones that come in kit aren’t long enough. Also go ahead and order you some rock krawler spring isolators, and don’t use the ones in the kit.

I have basically the same set up as you and I did not need any other parts! Worked perfectly out of the box. My dealer installed it with a lifetime warranty!

That's great news. Mine seems to be running fine so far

Install the Mopar 2" on a 2018 JLUR. The Mopar 2" was more like 4" lift. After the alignment the caster was a 4.2. After driving it for 2 days the steering not what it use to be. So i'm currently looking to install some adjustable front lower control arms. My goal is to set the caster at 5.5.

You should start a thread for those of us with kit if you do this. Let us know how it goes

It will drive fine out of the box, but if you are anal like me the axles pushed to one side or the other will drive you nuts. I would personally add a front trackbar and a raised rear trackbar bracket designed for a 3-3.5" lift kit to center the axles.

I'm looking at the Fuel Vapors right now! 20x9 or 20x10 with 35x12.5. I have punkn Sahara JLU. Do you like the Matte Black? Did you consider the tinted ones? I haven't seen those in person so not sure what they really look like. They look great on your Jeep!

I would add adjustable track bars and adjustable upper control arms up front to dial-in your caster. Not necessary, but that’s what you need to get it aligned perfectly (not saying doing it without them isn’t good enough - most people don’t).

Did you mean the adjustable front LCAs (Lower Control Arms)?
