Mopar 2" and Nitto Ridge Grappler 35's. Do your research. I'm finding that the Mopar lift is incomplete and I just spent an additional $800 I'm parts to try and get it corrected.

Mopar 2" lift kit w/adjustables tack bars and 1.5 inch spacers.
4 Inches!!! and now the 35's looks small :mad:
I need something to move rear tires because with lift they move to the front.

I think it is fine, unless it is only about the looks. The breakover angle is much better with the lift, and there is more room for suspension travel without rubbing, so functionally, it is an improvement.

Since you brought it up, I'd personally ditch the spacers because the mopar always lifts more than 2" anyway. And a set of control arms to recenter the wheels in the wells.

Question for you experts - Can I put (without rubbing or other issues) 20x12, -44 offset, 4.77 backspace wheels / 35 x 12.5 tires on Wrangler Sahara JL with 2" MOPAR lift?
Thanks

I’m late to the party on this thread, but I’ll weigh in on the second question. I have a 2019 JLUR with the 6 cyl, the 2” Mopar lift and, originally, 35” KO2s on factory Rubicon wheels. (The 35s ran fine without rubbing prior to the lift, but I never had the Jeep fully flexed.)

When I added the Mopar lift there was plenty of room for the 37s, so I upgraded to the 37’s. I did that because I prefer the look, I wanted another inch of clearance, and I like the feel of the bigger tires. It’s hard to put it into words, but the bigger tires just feel better, particularly when they are aired down and running over rough trails with lots of large, sharp, rocks.

I was worried about the gearing before I bought the 37s, so I planned to regear to 488s, or maybe even 513s, but the Jeep drives great with the factory 410s. I literally can’t tell the difference in around-town or highway driving. It’s hops off the line, accelerates well, and climbs fine. That wasn’t the case with my old TJ (sport). I ran 33” Toyo MTs on that and it was a complete slug until I regeared to 456s. The TJ drove well after that, but nothing like the power of the JL on 37s with the Stock 410s.

My 2019 JL is my 7th CJ/TJ/JK/JL since 1977, and it‘s current performance is, by far, the best I’ve ever had in every way. If I drive responsibly there’s little loss in fuel economy... That was the biggest surprise for me, as bumping up a tire size has ALWAYS cost me at least a couple MPG on every vehicle I’ve ever had except our 1986 Landcruiser, and that got only 12 mpg no matter what we did. (The “[Banned Site]” video about his JL with 37s with stock gearing provides a more precise technical summary of the performance changes. He chose not to regear too.)

The Mopar lift worked great for me. It drove better than new as soon as it rolled out of the shop. I’ve since upgraded to Yeti/adjustable track bar/Falcon stabilizer, and some other parts, but none of that was because the Mopar wasn’t an improvement.

My brother has a 2019 JLUR with the 4cyl (yellow below) He installed the bigger Teraflex Lift and the better Falcon shocks. His set up is firmer, even on the softest setting. He’s also got less body roll and about 2” more height, but both rigs track and steer effortlessly at 65 on the highway, and both are good on the trail. He’s also running the 37 K02s with the factory 410 gearing. He’s not planning to regear either. I think the next expense for both of us is likely to be skid plates and better brakes, because we do both feel some loss in braking, though it’s not terrible.
