Either Teraflex or Rough Country....leaning toward RC at the moment. Teraflex tends to be out of stock on most sites. They both have a shock upgrade package. I'm doing 37's so I'll need a change on the bump stops also.

Can you still use factory shocks and springs with this?
As with any lift over 2" you will need shock extensionsCan you still use factory shocks and springs with this?
Very nice.As with any lift over 2" you will need shock extensions
That is all that is needed
frankly you can get by with the Teraflex 1.5" Lift that does NOT require shock extensions. and still get 37's on just fine on the 4xe Rubicon
Here is the 1.5 with 35's ((" tire to fender well)
Do you have a pic of you next to it or this parked next to a regular car, just to get an idea of perspective
The installation is 100% the same as any other Wrangler JL. There is nothing on the 4xe suspension that installs any different. Really there is no difference than installing a spacer lift you are just putting back on different springs and shocks and adding two front Lower control arms. You should also buy a adjustable front track arm. Funny they say "do it right" there is nothing to adjust just install parts and torque. If I recall the book hours are just under 5 man hours. and with a lift for vehicle and the right tools 3-4 is likely actual time. The hardest part of installing a lift on NEW wrangler is breaking loose the factory bolts especially when on you n\back on the ground ( I am sure many can relate).Awesomesauce!
Just spoke to Rydell and they have one kit left in stock and they are holding it for me for when my 4xe arrives (hopefully in a couple weeks).
Glad I was able to secure it, otherwise would've went with a spacer lift until more stock arrived, which would've just been a waste of money in the short term.
Also going to have Rydell install it. They said they never installed one before, so mines will be their first 4xe. Which is actually bad news because he had to quote me a higher labor cost as they need to make sure they do it right, but still feel better getting it done at the dealer so I know I'll have no issues with warranty.
I spoke directly to Teraflex and they are fine with it. In fact they have two 4xe themselves. They did say expect August for a spring and shock lift.Shop wanted to check with Teraflex on whether their spacer kit is ok for the 4Xe. I'm like sure if you want but you are using the stock springs, so why wouldn't it be ok? As long is you get alignment parts (if needed), adjust the bump stop for 37's and have spring relocation/extenders, it should be fine imo.
Depends on tire choice to some extent but someone stated about 5 miles less. Some of us bought for torque and electric is icing on the cake.Lift kit is about $1,000 more than I'm willing to pay. Plus it sounds like you're going to lose about 5 to 10 mi of battery life switching to bigger tires
Teraflex won't confirm the spacer lift will work to the shop nor to me, so the shop won't put it on.....
