Rubicon Express is proud to announce the introduction of 2.5 inch lift systems for the Jeep JK Wrangler. These easy to install systems deliver impressive off road performance and value without having to change driveshafts, modify exhaust or brake lines. Get increased ground clearance, extended wheel travel and room for 35 inch tall tires.
Easy installation inside my garage!! I used a battery powered impact wrench, basic hand tools and jack stands (install took about 6 hours). Lift Kit comes complete (minus the front and rear brake line extension brackets, which Rubicon Express also sells and highly recommend, easy to install and does not bend your brake lines). The coils and Mono tube shocks feel very nice on the street and do not ride hard/stiff at all!! Feels very comfortable for every day driving as well for use on long vacation trips!! Took my 2014 Unlimited Sahara off roading and Wow, was I impressed with the ride quality. The Flex was amazing and shocks performed great!! The kit includes bump stops if you plan on installing 35 Inch tires, but are not needed (per installation instructions) if you use 33 inch tires or less. I have the factory 18" wheels (275-70-18) and looks good with this 2.5 inch lift kit. This kit worked great!!

I HAVE A 2011 2DR JK WITH 48000 MILES ON IT. I INSTALLED THIS LIFT ALONE IN 5 HOUR. IT IS THE PERFECT HEIGHT LIFT FOR ANY JK WITH FLAT FENDERS. I HAVE 305/70R16 (32.8X12R16) DURATRACTS ON IN THE PICS. COULD EASLY FIT 37 INCH TIRES. I WILL BE INSTALLING 295/75R16 (33.4X11.6R16)BFGOODRICH TA/KO2 NEXT WEEK. IT GAVE ME A REAL LIFT OF 3.7 INCHES OF LIFT FRONT AND BACK. THE RIDE QUALITY WAS INSTANTLY NOTICABLE, EVEN IN THE DRIVEWAY. THE RIDE IS SO MUCH BETTER THAN STOCK, AT ALL SPEEDS AND ON ALL SURRFACES, AND IS EASLY UPGRADABLE. I WILL BE PURCHASING MORE PRODUCTS FROM RUBICON EXPRESS AND 4WHEEL PARTS AGAIN. THANKS

This lift kit came highly recommended by our local 4 wheel parts shop...and I am very pleased with it. It provides a nice highway ride without sway or wander, but yet is not too tight and sensitive like our last suspension lift on an earlier model Jeep JK. We love it! It provides us with everything we wanted for our Jeep JK 2016...just enough lift for 33x12.5's and the heavy duty coil springs to allow us to add bumpers, winch, and other things without sagging...and to think that it can be upgraded to get more agressive for offroad as the Jeep becomes a third vehicle instead of a daily driver is very inviting!

Good way to spend an afternoon
Easy installation, I was able to complet the lift in an afternoon in my drive way, with only a few basic tools. While I had my jeep up I also installed Rubicon Express Control Arm Drop Brackets, and Rubicon Express Sway Bar Disconnects. both very easy to do and would highly recommend doing.
The Mono tube shocks offer a superior ride quality over stock and they look sharp under the jeep.
The kit did leave the nose of my jeep about an inch lower that the back (I do have a steel bumper and winch) But nothing a 3/4" spacer couldn't fix.

RE 2.5 w/ montubes rock
Staying at a healthy 2.5 will not cause driveline failure. Going over 2.5, you'll need more components...front lca, rear uppers, and front trackbar.
This is the best bang for the buck in terms of quality and price. If you don't know, the shocks are repainted custom tuned bilstein 5100's. the bushings have been upgraded from the previous kits. the coils are firm yet smooth, and paired with the shocks, its unbelievable. Perfect height to run my 33's and more room to upgrade to 35s. On the road, it feels very controlled and not flighty. Offroad, along with the combination of my discos, this kit performed above and beyond. The flex is amazing, and the shocks performed at a different level compared to streets. I'm not banging my head as much and I felt more confident that I took routes that I never managed to take with my stock setup.
Rear track bar comes with sleeves for the bolts, and the rear links are very sturdy. Bump stops are included if u plan to run 35's...not needed for 33's.
Cons - should at least come with rear brake line brackets. My solution... Bolt the rear brake line 2 inches below the old housing. Or u can get a brake line bracket for less than 10 bucks. No biggie. The kit is still complete and if you don't plan to offroad, you don't need to.
Lifetime "transferable" warranty too.
RE is back!! And with a vengeance for the JK
I have a 2015 rubicon unlimited , I would like to add larger tires and lift , but I really like the stock wheels , with this 2 1/2 lift , what other parts or things do I need to add , and what are the largest size tires I can add using the stock wheels without rubbing , I like a stock look , mean I don't plan on changing fenderand don't like tires sticking way out , can you help please ? I am planing on adding front and rear bumpers also , my question is will everything remain level with this kit ? Thanks

Largest tire you can run on the stock wheel is a 33x12.50 tire. This kit will allow you to run a 35x12.50 tire but they will rub with the stock wheels unless you add 1.5" wheel spacers. However, that will push the tires further outside the fenders. This kit is designed for aftermarket heavier bumpers. Thank you for the questions.

I recently purchased this item for my 2014 JEEP WRANGLER (JK) UNLIMITED SAHARA V6 - 3.6 Liter - GAS. What other parts do I need to purchase for this to work properly on my vehicle?

Can this lift be installed on a 2011 Sahara with stock wheels? Will wheel spacers be required?
Steven from Lantana, TX on
Yes, this will fit your vehicle application. To run a larger tire size will require wheel spacers. We offer part number G/293-73-150 that will fit your vehicle. Thank you.
