I need help with the Mopar / RE 2” Lift kit
My Jeep dealer said if I purchase the Mopar 2” lift for my 2009 4 door Rubicon auto and have them install it, it would not adversely affect the other warranties, but this is not what I need help with. I know this kit is expensive, but I have had bad experiences with Delaware Jeep dealers and other Jeeps I’ve owned, so the extra money appears to buy some peace of mind. I do not think I will ever “rock climb” with this Jeep, instead, I will drive it to work every day and have it on the beach on the weekends. My intention for this lift is to beef it up a bit for a winch/bumper and 33 x 12.5” tires, maybe 35’s, but I hear my Jeep will be a dog on the beach with auto, 410, and 35’s?
My questions are:
1.) Will my rear or front axel be shifted left, right, front, or back due to this lift?
2.) If so, what do I need to purchase [if anything] to complete this lift and have everything in its proper place?
3.) If I can’t bring myself to pay $1500 for the lift and $350 for instillation and go with something like the TeraFlex 2.5" Budget Boost – also what would I need to purchase to complete this lift regarding axel placement etc.?
4.) Regarding the TeraFlex 2.5" Budget Boost – do you recommend buying the kit with shocks or purchasing the shocks separately? For whatever reason, I’m not keen on extending my own shocks? Your thoughts are appreciated.
5.) If you were to purchase the shocks separately, which ones are best, or would yield the best ride for my application?
Thank you in advance for taking time to answer these questions.
