    Awesome, we installed the same kit on by brothers 2012 Jk Sport, expect with bilstein shocks. You'll love the kit, rides smooth and everything fit perfect. 2.5 lift and 35's is how they should have came from factory.

    Jeeps are like Hd's. They're the only vehicle you can put money into and then sell for more money.

    No, he didn't re-gear. You could some power loss, but not enough in my opinion to justify a regear. After the tires wear out he's considering some type of flat fender and 37's and that point he will probably regear.

    35/12.5/18 and nope. As long as the rim has 4.5 or less backspacing it won't rub. The rims I got had 5.3 backspacing so I had to use wheel spacers

    Debadged it, and took out the muffler and resonator. Ran straight pipe, sounds pretty good and extremely loud. Might look for a muffler when I get the chance. Also looking at a stinger front bumper, winch, flat fenders, and new shocks.

    Sorry about taking so long to respond, I've been pretty busy. I hated the soft top when I first got it, but after seeing that a hard top is $2,300 the soft too has grown on me lol.
