    Hi, all.
    We have a 2017 JKU that is still stock from the factory. I saw a Jeep the other day that I really liked the looks of. It was a 2016 JKU. It sat really nicely, with plenty of tire. The owner mentioned that her Jeep had a 2 inch leveling kit in the front, and 35 inch tires. She mentioned it had no lift kit, which is sort of what I am looking for.
    Since I don't offroad, my question is does anyone have this particular combination on the their Jeep, and how to do you like it?
    Thanks for any feedback, I appreciate it!
    Paul and Diane'

    Leveling kits usually include front and rear coil spring spacers. About 1/2 inch in thickness difference. The rear are the small spacers since from the factory JKs sit ass high. Not sure about installing a 2 inch kit in the front and not the rear.
    Anyway. If your looking for a simple basic lift. You can install a 2 inch lift kit which consists of coil spring spacers. And to get that leveled appearance. Don't reinstall the rear coil isolator. This will drop your rear down approx. 1/2 to 3/4 on an inch. I did exactly that here.

    2 inch lift with 33s. Just keep in mind. If you install any lift. To keep your factory ride. Your going to have to install an adjustable track bar, if not installed already. And either a control arm correction brackets, or adjustables there also.
    Hope this helps.
