4.0 2.5 inch Rubicon Express lift for 2011 4 door jeep

Product is good quality and relatively easy to install. Seems good but only run for 2 weeks.

5.0 Money well spent.

Well please with the lift, gained over 3". 4wp included a size heavier front spring to account for my winch and steel bumper. Jeep sets level, no rake. Ride is better than stock Rubicon. Handling seems unharmed.

5.0 Great with my 35's

I bought the Rubicon Express 2.5" lift from 4wheel parts and installed it myself in a day. Fits great, looks great, works great. I have 35" AT's and the 2.5" is enough for these tires. Took it to get it aligned and the shop used the included shims and was able to get a nice alignment, although a couple measurements are outside factory spec. However, it drives and feels good going down the road even at 75 mpg.

5.0 2.5" Rubicon Express Lift on 2013 Sahara 4 Door

Parts were all there. Nice material. Well packed. Poor instructions and part numbers referenced in instructions did not match actual part numbers on springs. Start in the back. I installed in my driveway with hand tools, torque wrench, two jack stands and two floor jacks (handy for the front end). First lift kit I had installed. You Tube video is handy to start with to identify process.

5.0 Lift on my 2013 jeep wrangler

Didnt come with instructions took 5 hours total to put on 2.5 hours front and 2.5 hour rear. Overall I can definitely tell a difference, my old shocks were shot, and now my jeep feels pretty stable. My tires were rubbing on drivers side when I turn having 33s, Until I got this lift now there is no rub.

5.0 Self doer

Q: had the 2.5 rubicon express kit installed on 2018 jk unlimited love the way the jeep sets but going down the road every bump feels like the rear hits the bump stop, is that normal. Answer this question

A: Same problem on my '18 JKU but mine is kinda heavy with roof top tent & steel rear bumper. I did not have this problem with stock suspension under similar load.

Q: 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 Answer this question

A: Hello Lake, 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.

A: Hello Anon, Installation of this kit on a 2012 and newer Jeep JK Wrangler will require either an exhaust spacer kit or aftermarket front and rear driveshafts. Thank you.
