Has anyone done this to mitigate the lift kit back down to a realistic 2"? Everywhere I see it's around a 3-3.5" lift.

I would be ordering the same 3.6 in 2dr instead of 4 dr for my '21 sahara unlimited with tow package and sky one touch top.

Not planning on winch, steel bumpers, etc. I have 33" BFG AT KO2s and do not want to go any higher.

Thanks all

Not running the Mopar kit, but from what I’ve read the 2” is on Rubicon models. Others models are netting 3” range. I’m running Synergy 2” and from what I’ve seen in person on other Rubicon’s running the Mopar we netted about the same. Roughly 2.5” lift. Give or take a little.

If you want to stay with 33" wheels, you can save a ton of money by installing the Teraflex 1.5 spacer leveling kit (2" in the front and 1.5" at the rear). No problems with suspension geometry, etc.

The Mopar 2" lift is not a complete kit, you will need front and rear adjustable track bars even if you install the 2-door lift on the 4-door.

I have the extended warranty so the only thing available is the MOPAR (with dealer installation 🙄)

So, theoretically, 2dr 3.6 is 300 lbs less than the 4dr Sahara 3.6.
And the rubi 3.6 is approx 200 more.

based off that, a 2dr 3.6 kit would net about the same or a little less than the rubi. Hopefully

I am not sure how the warranty conditions work in the USA. You will be just below a 2" lift so the warranty should not be affected.

UDPATE:

looking up curb weights on automobile-catalog.com:
2 dr rubicon 3.6 auto = 4,193 curb weight​
4 dr sahara 3.6 auto = 4,263 curb weight (70 lb difference)​

Looks like I'll be going with 77072396AE (2 dr, 3.6L mopar 2" lift) to get to a true 2". Will post updates when complete in a couple of weeks. Thanks for your input guys

No way is it only 70lbs. difference with two extra doors. The doors alone weigh that much.

Should be around 200lbs. more. All the better for you.

Rubicon have heavier axles.

So I got the lift installed at the dealer yesterday. Very happy with it. Rides great, even better than stock IMO. Looks like all around it landed at 2.5”+/-. Rear looks a little high to me but it might settle out (also noticed the other side is halfway up the curb 🤦🏻‍♀️)

no regrets- overall I think it’s a great option for someone WITHOUT a rubicon wanting less than 3-4” lift.
