Can you put the soft top back on with the shade? And would the hard top go over that as well?

Installed two sets of Teraflex .5” load level spacers stacked for a 1” lift. I didn’t want to go much higher due to it being a DD, and to keep it easy for kids to get in. Wanted a little extra clearance for the 35’s. I have heard a few on here have done this but could not find many good pics. For now going with the stock Rubicon shocks. Will probably upgrade to FOX eventually. Took about 3 hours alone.

Wow, looks great and amazing idea ! Might sending a link for these ?
Was looking towards 2.5” spacers lift, but that might be enough to clear the 35s and still be able to access underground parkings ans chit ! Lol
Any videos showed you how to do it ?
Thanks :)

Here is a link to the spacers

Teraflex has a video on YouTube. installation is the same as their 1.5” kit. I didn’t bother to loosen the control arms it wasn’t necessary.
Here is a better comparison.

Thanks for the insight. I wonder if your case is isolated? I wonder why for you/some Rubicons, the full height is not achieved? Hmmmm.

I have a Sahara, so maybe it would be a full height for me?

Also - if not Dynatrac, then which kit would you recommend for a mild 2” lift, with hardly/if at all, off-road use?



I love that ARB bumper. One of the few non-OEM that I’ve seen that I like. What’s the material of it? I love my stock fog lights though, but judging from your pic, it’s a close match to the stock LED’s?



Good luck with the sale, and thanks for the explanation. If I could do it all over again, it too would be a Rubicon from the get go.
I’m not an expert but in your case I’d probably throw a spacer kit on

Yes, that's what they say. I'll reply with pics/experience when we put our hardtop and panels back on.

Rigs looking good! IMHO I think it looks better without it.

I agree... I was about to remove it this afternoon, but my kids pleaded me not to, for some reason. My rationale of “people know it’s a Wrangler!” Did not work. Lol. I might rock it this way for a bit until they forget :)

Mine or yours?!?!? :)
