But hey man. Not trying to sway you one way or the other. Just trying to provide alternative. If you look at cost of Mopar lift, plus adjustable TBs and LCAs you are prob pretty close to same as MC maybe more. Just throwing it out there.

I bought my Sport S used with Mopar lift already installed. I added front TB, adding spring correction pads and LCAs. The ride is pretty nice but if I was doing front start not sure I would have chose piecing it together. Just FYI
Are you still on the Mopar lift? Also which correction pads do I need? I bought the Mopar lift used with o my 5,000 highway miles. I need to get it installed once I find a trackbar

I have the 2021 JULR, so the TSB can’t be an issue. (At least I would think)

I will look into control arms, but I will wait and see how it does with the mopars first.
Thanks for the info.

sounds like I will need to get the rear track bar bracket and adjustable front track bar at the least.
Did you get the adjustable LCA?

I did. I ended up going with the rough country. They are absolute beasts and no regrets. I also did the RC adjustable track bar up front. As for the correction pads, I used the daystars. However, I’m sure the RK will do the trick.

Cool, I was also reading the instructions, it says the springs should bow outward.

Here's what a Mopar 2.5 lift and 33" tires looks like on a 2021 Willys. My shop has installed a lot of these and did not recommend any other parts unless there are real steering issues. They said with only 33" tires they have not heard of

any complaints.
Did you need to replace the front drive shaft? It's a 2 door non Rubi and to my understanding sits hire than the rated 2.5" correct?

I did not replace the front drive shaft nor did my mechanic suggest I should do so. It definitely sits higher than 2.5"

Not positive since I have aftermarket wheels but everything I read on here folks recommend spacers when going larger tires. Most likely you could get away not using them and just adjust steering stops a bit.

Did you get any more clarity on if wheel spacers are needed on a sport with the Mopar 2'' lift when keeping stock wheels?
hey I actually sold the lift, I'm still stock right now lol...I decided to run the 33s into the ground then go lift, which will probably be in 1-2 yrs lol or sooner I hope...Im also tied up again between 2 different kits right now, Mopar Lift or Dynatrac Lift
