As I am awaiting all parts to come in I wanted to go ahead and start a build thread. The 2020 Mojave is an amazing machine The drive ability is great! It far exceeds my 2019 JLU and I would go as far to say I enjoy it more then the first gen Raptor I owned in 2010. So my goal was to raise it a little but not excessively. I did not want to go beyond 35” tires, I love how 37’s look but it’s a Mojave and it will turn 35’s as it was built to with no problems. I couldn’t find a kit that had everything I wanted so I figured build my own. Below are the items that I have in my garage awaiting time for me to go out there and install.
Lift-
-1.5” Teraflex front spacer
-1.5” Fatbobs garage rear spacer
-Teraflex front and rear extended bump stops
-Mopar extended LCA’s
-Front Rubicon Express shock relocation bracket
-Rear Iron Rock shock relocation bracket
-Will utilize JScan to adjust tire size and TPMS settings.
-I went with the new Warn 17x8.5 wheels. I just like the looks and Warn has always put out a good product.
as for tires.
-After weeks of of research I went with Patriot Mud Terrains35x12.5x17
Not many people have them but from all of my research they hold up very well. I had a horrible experience with Nittos in the past.
May add a track bar relocation bracket if needed. Along with fox steering stabilizer.

NICE! I’ve been really interested in the new WARN wheels since they were released. I look forward to seeing them on a JT!

I will be waiting to see how this turns out. It sounds like a good plan.

Well got the 1.5” front, and shock relocation brackets done. I didn’t have time to do the 1.5” rear yet so just threw a 3/4” spacer which was very easy.
I had TPMS issues so I decided just to go without and turned off the tpms with the j scan. Still need to adjust the steering wheel and add the extended LCA,s.
What do you think?

Any issues with mpg? I'm on stock 33's Wildpeak A/T and seeing 15.3/15.4 mpg (only 520 miles on odometer)
Zero issues. I have 3700 miles. The only other thing I need to do is install an adjustable trackbar to bring the axle back over.
As for mpg, I just did 50 miles round trip on two lane roads max speed of 60mph a lot of stop and go and I averaged 16.8 mpg. I also used the JScan to update the compute with the new tire size.

Well I had time today to get the 1.5” Fatbobs garage rear spacer, teraflex bump stop extension and extended rear shock brackets installed today.
I’m waiting for my softopper to come in and trying to decide which rack to get. I still need to install the extended LCA’s up front.

I have yet to find a bumper that I like enough to buy.
