JK-8 Kit

Can an JK-8 kit be used on a two door? Only read about 4 door conversion.

Yes, at it 2 years ago, very cool. Someone did one in South Arlington VA when I was there. I thought maybe you were talking about a lift kit I haven't heard of.
Anyway I thing I got my answer, the 4.10 gear should be ok for the 2" lift and 35" tires, maybe i'll need some upgrade on the brakes?
thanks, John

4.1 gears works well on 35s on the 12+ 2 door. i had no issue on 35s with stopping on a 2 door. I would get better pads. I have 37s on 4.1 gears on a 2 door Nag1 auto. still has enough power to get rubber and not even flooring it. But the jeep is not a DD, very stripped down too. 2000 rpms at 75. a bit low for the autos 5th. But again its on a trailer when we head out on day trails or long distance anyway. stopping it is not as good as it could but then again off road its not a issue. it in low and we go slow.

Doing brakes will be like 2,000$ you do the install. Not that it would be overly difficult. But most people tend today are not as mechanical as years past and newer vehicles are far more complex than the old vehicles. From what i have seen. The jeep Mopar brake kit seems like a good front. includes everything master/booster up grade and rotor calipers 900+. then the big brake rear from terra flex looks good.
