MOPAR 4.5" Lift Kit

Well MOPAR makes a nice kit and it's covered by them for 3yr/36k but if you get a BDS LiftKit it has this warranty:

No Fine Print Warranty:

If you are the original purchaser of any BDS product and it breaks, we will give you a new part. Period.

Shock and Stabilizer Cylinders Limited Lifetime Warranty
BDS Suspension Co. warrants to the original retail purchaser that its shock and stabilizer cylinders are free from defects in material and workmanship for so long as they own the vehicle. Excluded from this warranty are the finish of the product and mounting bushings. Defects in material and workmanship do not include such things as dented cylinders or bent rods caused by obvious side impact, rust, worn or deformed bushings. A shock absorber is a wear item and over time will experience diminished damping resistance due to normal component wear. This is not a defect in material or workmanship and is therefore not warrantable.

BDS Suspension's obligation under all warranties is limited to the repair or replacement, at BDS's option, of the defective material. Any cost of removal, installation or reinstallation, freight charges, incidental or consequential damages are expressly excluded from these warranties.


If you can find a better one you let me know but this so far is the BEST on the market.

Since this thread
Came from the dead
I figured I'd reply to what's been said
Been 3 years, since I said
I like this lift, so I'll go ahead
And tell anyone, who's read the thread
That I still like it so it can be put to bed.

(I have a 4 and a 1 year old. Any guesses on what kind of books they like me to read to them lately?)

The Mopar kit is not available at present due to RE's restructuring. You can go with the RE kit. I think I may still have one or two in stock if you're interested. Same lift.

I spoke with my dealer it has to have MOPAR on it and proof that its a MOPAR product for my waranty to still be okay. I will continue to research and get back with you trying to figure out what else I have to do to my RIG if I get a lift.

There's a little more to it than that technically, but if that's your dealer's feeling, they're the ones who will be able to make things easier on you if you have a claim so it's not a bad way to go. I can get you a deal on the Mopar kit too if you go that direction, assuming Rubicon Express gets their situation all ironed out in the next couple months. The lifts ship direct from them.

Nice to see this thread come back to life. I actually work at a Jeep dealer now and these kits have been getting a huge response.

It's to my understanding that the kit is warranteed under Mopar so which dealer you go to shouldn't matter (some just may not want to admit it). The tech that installs our kits has been doing it for a while now and the service department definitely stands behind both the parts and install. We haven't had any claims come in, but I know any problems would be honored under warranty if the situation arouse.

We haven't had any hold ups on ordering kits, regardless of RE's situation. Any updates on their standing as a company?

If you read the warranty information on the Mopar site you will note that the lift a) doesn't come with one and b) reads with the inference that its instalation voids the factory warranty.

So, it seems that its back to the dealer by dealer situation, with some providing a warranty and not voiding the oem warranty and some not. I gotta think the dealer that sells and instals the lift would have to honor the oem warranty and can spell out any warranty they provide for the lift itself.

FYI, you can now order a Jeep with AEV's lifts and gear intalled oem - from a dealer, through Chrysler/Jeep. I think everything but the Hemi is offered.

The Jeep ends up wth a window sticker reflecting the installed AEV options.

I haven't read up on warranty implications, but it be darn hard for a dealer to deny warranty on a vehicle acquired through the Jeep/Chrysler oem system.

I checked and the Hemi options are available through the dealerships. Wow.

Here is a link to the AEV order form available through Jeep dealers, with the packaged options codes of JK231, JK231S, JK231R. Additioanl options are also available, and the Hemi falls into that catagory, along with other dear, such as drive shafts, etc, etc,.

Link to the form: http://dnxhosting.com/files/AEV%20Je...ons%20List.pdf

I've seen photos of Jeeps at dealerships with the additional AEV window stickers, I'll try to find one later.

Whatever it is you think might break because of the lift, you can buy 3 of for the extra cost of the lift. That is why it works for the dealer. They are just taking your money upfront. And the aftermarket part will be better.

According to this, I would just replace my entire suspension with rock krawler, bds, and anything else with an amazing warranty so you don't have to worry about it. Also, if they try to void anything else because of your lift kit, by law they have to prove that the lift kit made that part break down.
