I have the Mopar 2" lift which was installed from my dealer. I love it. I also have a Yeti XD Drag Link with Griffin attenuator installed as I thought it would help absorb some short from the roads I drive on. I drive on crappy NY roads and sometimes there are speedbump type bumps that will basically make my Jeep hop, which will give me a very very slight wobble. Will a Yeti XD front Trackbar tighten things up? How do I measure how off center my front axle is? I don't mean to threadjack, I 100% the Mopar lift and would definitely get it again if I were going to do a new build.

Thanks… My Steersmarts Yeti adjustable front track bar is ordered!

I also noticed someone post that the rear is a nice to have but not as necessary as the front one. Is that correct?
I added a rear adjustable to my lift. I don’t think it’s totally necessary, but I wanted it done right.

Does anyone know the differences between the diesel kit vs the 4xe kit? The reason I ask is because the I found a 4xe kit in stock vs the diesel kit being out around 6 weeks. Thanks in advance
I know many have complained the 4xe kit only netted 1” on 4xe. Also, not positive but think diesel has side specific springs and 4xe does not. But not positive. I think you can find parts list for each with some research.

edit- looks like changed over time.

Does anyone here have any issues with needing to increase the caster after the lift is installed? I have a 2020 Rubi Recon. I've been told (and also noticed someone mention it in this thread) that increasing caster will help with tracking on the highway (at higher speeds). I have my lift ordered and want to know if I should go ahead and order longer/adjustable front lower control arms as well. I will also be going from 33 to 35's at some point as well.

I drive my Rubi from FL to NC (to my cabin) all the time. I love it when I'm up at the cabin and in the mountains, but that highway trip in between is brutal LOL.
The kit comes with new front lower control arms, to adjust the caster for the lift.

Not sure about needing to adjust the caster again for 35" tires, not very mechanically inclined.
