There's another company that's making coils for the front and rear for wk2 and it's slightly cheaper at 1100 for a 2.5- 2-75" lift. The kit also comes with front and rear strut top plates to prevent. I can't speak on the quality of them though. I just recently found them about a week ago but I already purchased the RRO lift with UCA so to late for that.

I thing to note on their product is it states "no bar/no winch". Dobinson offers a setup for the extra weight up front, if you have a bar and/or winch.

I have the RRO spacer, combo bar and winch, and I wonder how much lift I lost with that extra weight up front. Also wonder what my actual ride height would be replacing the RRO spacer for the Dobinson Coils and shocks. Also wondering what the ride difference would be. $1500+ is an expensive test. I cannot afford to lose any lift.

If you decide to go the dobinson route let me know how it goes. I have the bumper combo and winch ordered for mine. I asked several members and they've stated no noticeable loss from the extra weight but we'll see. The fiancée is picking up my jeep tomorrow so I'll have her take measurements for me from before lift, after, and post bumper and winch.

I'd do it all but still stuck on deployment. I knew there was a reason why they gave us pizza

Dobinson has a import office in Florida. I contacted them about a set of springs only for a WK diesel. I actually have a set of rear springs from Dobinson sitting here in my basement. They're brand new, for a WK2 without trailer tow - found them on eBay.

Hey guys just wanted to point out that i personally got the RRO lift kit for 2.5" and am completely satisfied with the product. Of course id like to be able to go up one more inch but for that i suppose we all have to wait. Also have a friend who went with the dobinson suspension but the 1.5" inch lift is simply not enough and way to costly. check out the pics for my WK2 with the RRO kit and other mods.

WK2 is still new to the market, its goona take some time for the aftermarket world to open up. I am sure with in the next few years, we will see all sorts of options, better springs, etc..IRS/IFS is becoming more and more, so its just a matter of time. Doesn't matter for me, though, not like I can lift mine...1500 is steep for sure!

Looks real good man, like the black paint with the gray rims, curious though, what trim is your Jeep, the grill, red tow hooks and wheels are throwin' me off?.. Are those blinker in your mirrors? Was that an option from Jeep?

The WK2 has been been out like four years. There was an custom outfit a couple years ago using a test mule in an attempt to develop lifts and other suspension goodies, but found that the chassis limitations are just too expensive to overcome. The 2.5 RRO is about it unless you also rework the half shafts. I suppose with enough $$$ you could put a WK2 body on a Wrangler chassis ...

I think we have seen about the extent of WK2 upgrades, mods and toys. I saw an article, maybe a thread here, about Dynatrac prototyping a IFS/IRS if/when the Wrangler goes IFS/IRS. So they may do something with the WK2 but it still won't be that much of a difference I estimate and if so...it will be pricey.

Ok, well, sorry for my speculation, I am glad that I have QL then! Push a button and lifted!

I spoke to an off road company a few months back that said they could drop Rubicon axles in. $12k they estimated. A little too pricey for me.

I would LOVE for the WK2 to have solid axles. I think if I were to drop 12K+ on axles for the WK2 I would rather just trade it in for a JKUR. Who knows really. So many factors.
