I wanted a good leavaling kit 2.5 4 wheel parts recommended Rubacon Express. I will say I am very happy it's been installed 3 months now. I have gone trailing not mall crawling and I am very excited. With 33s I have a good amount of clearance.

Perfect lift for 35's!
I wasn't sure which lift to get so I went with what 4wheelparts (Portland) recommended, the 3.5" on 35's. They did the install and it turned out perfect!!!! I couldn't be happier. It looks great, perfect height, especially with the 35's. Not too tall, just perfect. It still works well as a daily driver, and is more that capable to handle most off road adventures. I've thoroughly tested it in mud, sand and rocks and it's great. Thanks Austin (Portland,OR shop).

Got an old YJ? Get this kit
I picked up a 1994 YJ that had tall shackles and stock springs. The springs were almost flat because of the shackles and the ride was like zero suspension.
I bought the RE 2.5" kit and couldn't be happier. It was stiff at first, but settled in nicely. I really appreciate the solid feeling I have now when driving headlong into big bumps. Is it bouncy? Yes, it's a Jeep. But it's a solid feeling bounce, very nice ride.
FYI: I also installed some new RE boomerang shackles and Rancho 5000 shocks all the way around. I am VERY happy with the upgrade

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!

I've had this lift for 18 months and I totally love it. Rides great very comfortable not stiff at all. I have an aftermarket bumpers front/rears/tire carrier with 35" tires and winch. The only thing I would suggest especially if you are going to have the set up like mine is to get the .50 leveling kit TER1954105 so the rear evens with the front. I'm about to put the leveling kit because I think my rear is sagging a bit from the tire.

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.

3.5" Standard Rubicon Express Lift
The lift can easily be installed in a garage. The instructions were fairly detailed. There were a few times there could have been better pictures or instructions. The worst part of the installation was knocking out or cutting out the tabs in the control arm brackets. You will most likely need a really good carbide cutting bit for a die grinder. This will make the installation much easier and faster.
By KMH038 from Shreveport, LA
This lift gave me 3.5" in the front and 2" in the back. I had to buy 1 3/4" spacers to put on the rear springs to make it level.

Great Budget Boost
Easy to install! Stout spacers, great shocks. Took the Cadillac float out of my wj! Stiff springs but its a lift, that's expected. Shocks preload great, handle great, and look great.
In a previous post the answer was yes an exhaust specter was needed on a 2013 Sahara. In the description it says âThese easy to install systems deliver impressive off road performance and value without having to change driveshafts, modify exhaust or brake lines.â. So will I have to modify my exhaust or anything else on a 2014 sport jk? Need to clear up confusion.
PJrulz10 from Arkansas on
An exhaust spacer is needed for lift kits over 3 inches starting on 2012+ models. This Rubicon Express 2.5" Standard Coil Lift Kit with Twin Tube Shocks should not require an exhaust spacer.
If you have further questions you can contact our customer service center @ 877-474-4821
Can I still use the factory wheels with this kit also would you recommend replacing the control arms
Jay from on
I would recommend getting a wheel with 3-4 inch backspacing when using Rubicon Express 3.5 Inch Super-Flex Suspension Lift Kit with Twin Tube Shocks. That way you can run a wider tire without any clearance issues.
Thanks for your question.

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?
Rbiard from Tustin, CA on
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.
