I just installed my daystar 2" spacer lift yesterday. So far, ride feels pretty much the same..

only issue i have right now, and not sure what it is, but if i am slightly turning and go over a speed bump fast, something scrapes something.. :ROTFL: not sure what it is though.

The lift is higher than I would have pictured it.. I didn't use any clevis spacers and it seems more level than I thought it looked in other pics.. I will update with much better pictures later.

updated pics!



the "scraping" is most likely your abs freeking out. larger tires then the stock 225s?

Pros: Pretty affordable at $750.
Much more clearance, especially with the air dam off.
Perfect ride height. You feel like you see over most vehicles.
More room if I ever want bigger tires.
The KK doesn't nosedive when you brake.

Cons: Can't think of any.

Jeepinbyal.com
927 front springs
731 rears
Long travel rear shocks. The part number changed for the rears, just tell them you want the longer ones. Add the teraflex front bumpstops and use two hockey pucks per side for the rear.
If you can swing the JBA upper control arms I recommend getting them too. You'll get about 2.5"-3" of lift and an awesome ride :rockon:

Hey yall i got a 2010 kk. Just broke 100k (bought with 40k). Been mudding it stock but its time to throw a lift in it. I would like opinions on a 3" lift. Ideally a 4" but im not being greedy here hahah.
If i go with econo lift just spacers for larger tires do i have to replace the control arms or anything? A friend of mine with a kj is saying i would have to no matter the size lift.
Thoughts? Experience?

Anything over 3" needs the JBA arms

How am I just now seeing this?! Morgan bro, that looks amazing! Can you give some more info on how you built the front coilovers? Is that just a stock clevis?
