Looks good. Pretty sure one of those is in my future too. Did you install it yourself? I was watching a video today online and looks like it is pretty easy to do in the garage. The dealer I bought mine from was offering them for $2150 installed. I did not think that was too bad either.

Did you happen to take any measurements prior to install and after on height? Curious how much lift you actually get from that kit as the 4XE is already 1" higher than regular Rubicon according to others on here. Need about another 1-1.5" to eliminate some of the rubbing we've had on the trails over some decent obstacles, but nothing major, so been waiting to see what options come out.

Looks great. Nice touch painting the bolts on the rash ring.

I'm 99% finished installing my lift. It's all on, but something is rattling whenever the rear axle hits a bump...hence the 1% remaining. Perhaps I didn't re-torque something; I'll check after work today.

Anyway, the lift took me far too long to install, basically all day Sun and Mon. I measured before/after and am seeing about 1.125" in the rear and 1" in the front.

Good on you for doing it yourself. I am guessing you did not get something tightened up. Been there myself after doing a lift. I also bet you could do a second one in less than half the time. That is the way it is for me.

Make sure too tight everything again after 500 kilometres needed to do that on mine

Well, I found the rattle. It was an upper, rear shock mount that was insufficiently torqued. I must have missed it when I retorqued everything after the weight was back on the tires.

It's all good now.



I also installed my "37" inch KO2's on Kansei Roku, 0 offset, 17x8 5" wheels. Lift & tires together produced about 2.5" in front & 2 7/8" in the rear. My KO2's are are about 35.25" loaded.

The ride on road is very similar to stock. No time to get it out on anything more interesting.

Pics as promised.

Stock spare until I can get a new tailgate reinforcement/spare mount. Looks a little hoky to me with the mismatched wheels, so that spare mount will come soon.
