Lifted my 2012

Big thanks to Jason at JeepinOutfitters.com. I ordered my lift from him a few weeks ago. I've been sitting on it for a while, but yesterday I finally decided to get it put on. Jason actually did all the work installing the Rubicon Express 3.5" Superflex kit. I drove it home and put the new tires and wheels on it last night. So far I'm loving it. I still have to put the new aFe Y-pipe on sometime soon. So far I'm loving it...

Nice! What's this Y-pipe you speak of? Some kind of remedy for the crossover/tuba that limits droop?

Teraflex has the exhaust spacer kit also as another remedy.

I've had mine lifted for a while, but can't hit the trail till I get those spacers in for fear of mashing my front driveshaft into the exhaust over and over again.

Exhaust Spacers should be going in mine next week. The spacers are probably a cheaper alternative to a new exhaust if you're interested in saving some dough!

By the way, your Jeep looks great!

Thanks!

I ordered the aFe part about a week before the Teraflex solution started popping up. I'd thought about sending it back, but then just figured I'd keep it since once it's done, it's completely out of mind for me.

Any idea if that AFE pipe also allows more droop in addition to getting rid of the tuba? I've had this crazy idea of getting a '12 and dropping in an RK long arm X-factor kit with 12" coilovers. If that happens I'm going to need some serious droop - a lot more than the TF spacers provide - and I'm trying to figure out what my options may be.

It doesn't touch the tuba. It connects right after it. It does allow more droop though because it relocates the crossover pipe to behind the cross member.
