    R&D on the 2 Door JL has not been completed. We have a target sample size that has not been met. Taking the average of or current sample size we are measuring a range of heights from 0.75" - 1" higher ride height when compared to the 4 Door JL.

    With only 0.75" - 1" higher ride height, I'm interested to see where you guys go for us 2 doors. How much travel will be gained?

    I might need something after another 55k miles. :fingerscrossed:

    Wheel travel would remain the same because full compression and full droop are the same for both platforms.

    I'm thinking over stock, not to compare with what the 4 door guys are getting. What gains/advantages over stock would the system be designed for?

    @Krondor @jlopes68
    I apologize for the confusion. I misunderstood the question.

    The 2.5" JL systems offers a 35% wheel travel increase over stock. Which yields +3" in the front and +2" in the rear.

    Ok, lol you scared me there. So can you give any info on the adjustable shocks and what conditions might do better on which settings?

    Is it possible to get the reservoir shocks with the stage 2 system for the JL?

    Unfortunately we do not offer a 2.0 Remote Reservoir option for the JL. The next evolution of the kits jumps to 2.5" Remote Reservoir shock

    We have tested all 3 shock options on the JL for 1,000 off road miles and the footage we're captured over the course of the testing sessions was with all 3 shock options . The bulk of the teaser footage is with the ICON JL Stage 2 system. Our JL currently sits with Stage 8, for now... :like:

    Have anyone installed the Icon Lift and share you experience with them. I was considering the MC GC 2.5" originally, but that is a review here which suggest the on road comfort isn't very good with the MC. Plus, it doesn't look like my local installers in the area carry MC. I am now thinking EVO with Kings or the Icon which I am unable to find any reviews.
