PRODUCT OVERVIEW

Lifting your Jeep JK Wrangler improves ground clearance and allows for larger tires but it can have an adverse effect on suspension and steering geometry. Now you can have your cake and eat it too, thanks to Rubicon Express best on-road performing kit - the 3.5-inch JK Sport Kit. This kit corrects steering and control arm geometry to eliminate bump steer and increases anti-dive for better braking and improved safety. The kit includes our new high steer kit made up of a new solid drag link that accepts OE tie rod ends while relocating the steering stabilizer above the drag link for increased ground clearance. The Sport Kit can improve the ride quality and handling on any 07+ JK or JK Unlimited with a 3.5-inch suspension lift.

I have a 2011 Jeep unlimited wrangler 4 door, do I have to replace front and/or rear drive shafts when installing this lift kit?

Asked by Rbiard from Tustin, CA on

Hello Rbiard The R/ERE7145 Rubicon Express 3.5 inch JK Sport Lift Kit is an excellent lift for your 2011 Jeep JK Unlimited. This lift does not require replacing the front or rear drive shafts on a 2011 JK Unlimited. However I recommend replacing the front transfer case output yoke (R/RRE1810) and the front driveshaft (R/ERE1883-365) because the stock front driveshaft design at the transfer case output is a poor design that does not last when working at an increased angle. Thank You for your question. Jon Snyder 4Wheelparts

Answered by from Tustin, CA on

My big question is, how much lift is required to run 35's without trimming any sheet metal? Would adjustable track arms be advisable to use on any lift? And at what point with running 35's would a front drive shaft replacement and exhaust extionshion need to be used? I am concerned about making it right not half right. Your input would be greatly appreciated Thank You one more thing, running a bigger bumper with a winch, is a heavier front spring needed?

Asked by George from Mohave Valley, AZ on

Hello George, The Rubicon Express 3.5" JK Sport Lift Kit R/ERE7145 will allow you to run a 35x12.50 tire with trimming provided you have a wheel with a 3.75" to 4.5" backspace that's 8" to 9.5" wide. This kit comes with a track bar relocation bracket for the rear. If you own a 2012 or newer Jeep JK Wrangler we suggest you upgrade to an aftermarket front and rear drive shafts when installing this kit. Heavier front coil springs are not required. Rubicon Express has already factored that in for you. I hope that helps answer your questions. Thank you.
