The right rear is lower than the left by about an inch. It is noticeable. Anyone else have this issue?

Thanks for the help.
Best, Bret.

Seems no one else has had that issue, and sorry that I'm no help, I'm just curious if you've had it to the dealer yet, or located the cause?

How did you measure? I say this because my right side exhaust tips are about 1” lower on the right side than the left (but measured at the bumper the Jeep sits level). I think I’ve heard others mention this too.

Thanks for the response guys. On level concrete i measured ride height at left and right rear wheel well openings. Solid ruler (with level for plumb) at/over the center wheel cap. No one in vehicle, no cargo, full tank of fuel. 200 miles on odo, it has not been to the dealer.
Best,
Bret.

Ever freaking wrangler jk jl stock lifted new old unless you intentionally put spacer on the passenger side, it all like that. Don’t believe that fuel tank is on the passenger side crap bs. Eco diesel fuel tank is on the driver side and it still lean to the right…….

Just stand behind a wrangler and see yourself.. also my driver side was higher by 1/4 inch, fuel tank empty.

Uneven height has long been a characteristic of Jeeps. The issue is the lack of consistency. Some are level, some are .5" off, some are 1.5" off. I haven't measured the body but the right exhaust pipes are half an inch lower than my left.

I do not mean to derail this thread, but any fix on that? My right tailpipes are a half inch lower. I can push up on the right side to bring it level but there is no give when I push up on the left side. I haven't gotten under the Jeep to inspect.

So what we are saying is 25 years from now when a Rubi-392 rolls down the lane at Barrett Jackson Mike Joy and Rick DeBruhl will comment on how original this Jeep is because it lists to the starboard side.:LOL:;) Thanks again folks, Ill try to ignore it until it get's it's first service at the dealership.
