Rubicon Express is proud to announce the introduction of 2.5 inch lift systems for the 07-12 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.
The bad part is the rear track bar bracket did not center the axel under the jeep. Rubicon Express said anything within a half inch is in there specs. So plan on getting adjustable track bars.
This id a good kit. Nice Ride like stock. I am planning to upgrade to 35" tires. Instructions not to clear, but from that very happy.
Overall a good lift kit and mono shocks for the price. Instructions could have been a lot better with some good photos added. Rear track bar dropdown bracket provided in kit did not match provided instructions or parts list. Had to call RE help desk who explained that they changed from axle side drop down to frame side drop down. Rear sway bar end links have the center metal bushing that is rolled and has a split in it. These bushings are of poor quality and are more prone to failure. I opted to not use the RE rear end links and replaced with higher quality end links from a different vendor.
My husband and I did the install in about 6 hours. love the look of my jeep now. Instructions were less than specific in some areas, but if you have a little bit of mechanical know-how, you can figure it out. Ride is slightly stiff but that is to be expected. Still rides great and the bilstein shocks are a definite improvement from stock.
Really great construction and amazing ride. I heard that I would get factory like ride but it seems a little better but when you take into account the mono shocks it's way better. It took me 12 hours to install, I could have done it in a few hours if there were better instructions.
I have a 2015 Sahara unlimited, I am interested in this kit, I am going to run 33's. Will I need the Rubicon Express Exhaust Spacer Kit?

Hello jimbo, The Rubicon Express 2.5 Inch Standard Coil Lift Kit with Mono Tube Shocks should not need the exhaust spacer being it is 2.5". Thanks for the inquiry.

Hello I have a 2014 Jkru and am wondering if this lift is going to need the brake line relocation brackets or is it going to work with the stock ones / or do I need to buy extended brake lines.

Hi Tarr You will not need brackets or brake hoses for the 2.5" Suspension Lift Kit with Monotube Shocks Thanks

Hi, do most people purchase 33" or 35" tires with this kit? Do you know if it voids any factory warranty from Jeep? Thank you, Chad
Asked by o|||||||o541 from Bend, OR on
Hi ollllllll0541, This 2.5 kit from Rubicon Express will clear 33's or 35's, however the 33" is most popular since it does not completely fill in the wheel well area or look stuffed under the fender flairs. Hope this helps, thank you for the inquiry.
