Last Month I took my otherwise-stock 2008 Rubicon Unlimited and had a lift installed. My Rig sofar:
- 3.5" Rock Krawler Mid-Arm Flex Kit
- Bilstien 3"+ 5100's
- 35x12.5.17' Goodyear MTR Kevlar's
- Soft 8's
I had 4WP install the kit. They've checked the alignment 3 times, but cannot get it to ride without the ESP going off around corners. It doesn't do it on all corners, but will go off on freeway cloverleaf exits, even at 30MPH. There are no cloverleaf exits near 4WP, so they've not seen the issue. Not sure if they believe me or not.
Yesterday they told me "if this doesn't fix it, you need to take it to the dealer, something is wrong with a sensor or something, its' nothing we did". On my way home last night ESP kicked in 4 times. It wasn't raining, and I wasn't hot-dogging.
The steering wheel appears straight. They double checked that it was centered yesterday.
This is killing me. I feel like I destroyed a perfectly good Jeep with this Lift/Tires (altho it looks great!). I'd say I am averaging 5-10 ESP activations per day. Even when I try to turn it off it seems to come back on. I'm afraid its going to kick in at the wrong time and cause (not prevent) an accident.
Is anyone aware of a lift-kit friendly factory jeep service department in NorCal? I just know if I take it into Jeep they are going to give me
Thoughts or Ideas?
