no, your going to need to address more than what your getting in that low quality kit, even with exhaust spacers for the driveshaft to clear the crossover its going to hit anyways. Also at 4" your going to need a new front driveshaft because the angle will destroy the boot at the Tcase joint. Caster will also be an issue because you need adjustable control arms not those junk ass cam bolts at that height to recenter the wheels in the wheel wells and correct pinion angle/caster. That kit doesn't address steering geometry at all which will change drastically with 4" lift, I also don't see any brake lines in the kit either which will be a must!

You only need about 2.5" of lift to run 35s. Like he said above, that lift is very incomplete for a four inch lift. You will have it installed and hate the way the Jeep drives until you spend more money correcting everything.

Rock Krawler is a great option if you want some adjustable components and a nice ride/handling. The package pricing includes Bilsteins, but for as little as $33 you can upgrade to Fox shocks. RK's kits all include an adjustable front track bar and adjustable front sway bar links/disconnects. These are generally upgrades on other systems. If you're set on a 3.5 - 4" lift we can get you set up there, but you're going to want to expand your budget by about double what that Superlift kit runs.

Rock Krawler 2.5 Stock Mod Suspension System

PACKAGE: Rock Krawler 2.5 Flex System + Bilstein 5100s (Options Available)

Let me know if you have any questions!

Agree with many of the responses. I'm on 35s and a 2 inch with flatties. More than enough room, and I'm on a true to size 35.
2.5 would be the most I'd go before other issues creep up, as previously mentioned.

One more thing, consider your factory rake. Sometimes aesthetics's win over intended use.
What I'm trying to say without pissing off everyone, is the rake has some benefits. Outside a MINOR aerodynamic benefit (extremely minor) it comes in handy when you have cargo/heavy bumper/tire/hi-lift/gas or people in the back. Things tend to add up and even out quickly. That way your Jeep when loaded doesn't look like it's trying to take a sh#t.

I just bought the Mopar 2" kit off of Amazon for $910. It's a great deal for that lift and have seen a lot of great reviews. Looking forward to getting in on, along with the tires I've had sitting in the garage for months while I agonized over what lift to get....

Question for the experts: What else do I need? Are the geometry correction brackets a must have?


Edit: Just checked. Sale is off on the Mopar now. Back up to $1330. Sorry

What you are going to do with the jeep and what budget you have are a couple of important things to address. If you are just a daily driver looking for a more aggressive look a simple 2" budget boost with shocks extensions can be had for a couple hundred dollars. You will gain the needed height for 35's and maintain the factory amount of articulation. Flat fenders will also give you the look of a lift and give you more room for bigger tires without touching the suspension. Some will also add a 3/4" coil spacer up front with flats to level the jeep if that is your thing. You will also need wheel adapters or new wheels with 4.5" or less of back spacing to run a 35x12.5" tire so figure that into the cost. Finally you may want to check your gearing as making the jump to 35" tires if you have 3.21 gears will kill the performance of the jeep and gearing tends to be an expensive modification generally running around $1500. Watch your tire ratings many put too heavy a tire on their jeep and end up with a rough ride. I typically recommend a C rated tire but you may find a D rated works for you. I would avoid any E rated.

IF you are looking for more suspension travel then you will be looking into a more complete lift with longer shocks and more components and there are tons of companies out there that will address you needs. Metal Cloak, Synergy, Currie, Clayton, JKS, are all worth a look on the more expensive end of the spectrum.

Good luck with the build.

the better kits will cost more in the short run.. but will be well worth it..
Personally AEV lift kits are worth the money and work the best (for me)
I run 37's and have a 3.5 inch lift and do touch the stock fender when off road but with 35's
you can run 2.5 and have less issues that will cost money to go taller..
I did not change my exhaust with the 3.5 lift and have had no issues,, but did change my drive lines to a
thinner on.. so either way if you go above the 2.5 lift you will have more issues to deal with

I've been running a 2.5" teraflex lift with shock extension brackets for about 10000k now, no problem at all... almost had a catastrophic problem, but i averted it and now; no problem at all. I put a 1" front coil spacer in to compensate for the new stinger bumper and winch, welded some axle 'c' gussets on, and it's good to go! 33 inch duratracs, 3.21 gears are not happy about my decisions.

Who knows about motive gear!? Are they any good??

Also!
You will need either extended control arms as was mentioned or you can get control arm drop brackets, I got rancho ones and they are awesome actually. If you ever disconnect you r front sway bar for extra flex you will definitely need either exhaust spacers or an aftermarket drive shaft, otherwise the boot on the drive shaft will be burned by your exhaust!! No fun!! I haven't been able to prise the brake line bracket from my front brakes so I haven't tested my flex out yet. These mods are necessary for only a 2.5 inch lift! There is a lot more to do with the higher lifts, as the more exp. Guys have said
