    I am going to be ordering the 2.5 stock mod with bilstine 5100, extended break lines, bump stops and exhaust spacer. I have a ' 12 JKU Sport and will be running stock wheels and tires, do I need any thing else. Thanks for your help.

The issue is the front progressive coils have zero weight to compress the first 3 wraps or so. Throw on a heavy front bumper and that will take care of your reverse rake. They make the coils like this so you don't get sagging with heavy bumpers. Unfortunately when you aren't running them, you get the results you are seeing. It's more pronounced with the 2 doors since its a lighter vehicle as well.

    I have a Warn stubby bumper with a winch on the front of mine. I guess it just doesn't weigh enough. I agree with the amount of lift though. I gained close to 4" of lift with the max travel lift.

    Default Rock Krawler 3.5 x factor

    I recently ordered a 3.5 x factor and will be returning from deployment in about a month to install it. I'm trying to use this time to figure out the "little secrets" for this lift. Are there any special tools or anything that anybody would suggest to make it easier? Any tips? Tricks?

    Thanks

    Here are my front coils with jeep just sitting. I have rugged ridge stubby and xrc10 winch with synth rope. Notice the top wraps? Rock Krawler claims this is normal. My jeep sits level for the record.

    Will be buying your 2.5 stock mod system with rk front lowers and rear uppers. I have a rubi and would like to have a fix'd length sway bar links.( I've noticed the adjustable one don't seem to hold up to great at full flex)Could you tell me the fix"d sizes or possibly sizes for the front and rears or tell me another route, I don't wanna loose the e-disco.

    That is about what mine look like too. I have a little gap between the 2nd & 3rd wrap of the coil. No more than a 1/4".

    We really need coils specific to the 2-door. Annoying to have the front higher too.

    My top coils are spaced out. 2 door with only a RR XHD. Jeeps sits pretty level.

    Our 3.5" kits on a 4 door will gain you about 4" in the front and 3" in the rear to level out the stance of the jeep. The kits are based around a fully equipped jeep so if it is bone stock other then the lift you may net a little more height then those numbers.

Luckily, where I drilled the hole and where the snapped bolt is won't interfere with me fixing this since I originally moved the sway bar back further than the instructions said . My goal is to move it to where is is supposed to be per the instructions and not be a lazy a** this time. Any ideas where I can buy one single bolt??
    It sounds like your looking for one of the 3/8" x 1" long self taping bolts that we supply for the relocation of the sway bar. You should be able to find one at a local hardware store pretty easily! If not we can always ship you out one, but the first option will be quicker and cheaper we would assume.
