I was wondering, when I eventually get my 2.5" lift on my new JLUR with Falcon SP2 3.3 shocks, will the plastic inner fender liners need to be permanently removed?

It will depend on your tire size and where you plan on taking it. Daily drivers and no off reading can get away with more than those who do technical trails.

I have 35" tires and plan on easy to moderate off-roading, if that helps. I was wondering also, will the Falcon shocks require some cutting of the fender liners, if they are kept on the vehicle?

Certainly no expert but I believe you will need to cut the plastic fender liner to make room for the gas reservoir.

Also, make sure you pay attention to their notes:
  1. Bump stop configuration varies depending on shock absorber collapsed length, tire size, and fenders – See instructions for proper configuration for your application.
  2. May require JL: TeraFlex 2” Bump stop Strike Pad Extension Kit (# 1959500) and/or JL: TeraFlex 0.5” Bump Stop Strike Pad Shim Kit(s) (# 1959300).

you do need to cut the liner for the reservoir on the front, i just patched mine with gorilla tape since i removed my falcons.

i think i've got the directions still that have a template of where you need to cut if you'd like to see it, pm me..

fyi.. falcons are very stiff.

Do they loosen over time, and what settings do you use in various circumstances?

i overthought and overspent. as of yesterday i'm on the Fox 2.0s with my heavy jeep and they feel great. i was originally concerned that the Foxs would feel mushy, but it doesn't seem like they will be at all.

that's a Clayton 2-1/2" overland+ on 35s if you're interested.

👍

they're like 60 bucks per side to replace, i'll eventually replace them when the duct tape fails a few times.

are you still happy with the Clayton lift though? Nice looking rig!
