Looks Great,
When you installed the spacer up front, did you have any problems removing or installing the front coils over the Mojave hydraulic jounce bump stop? And, did you add an additional spacer to the bump stop base plate to take into account the added lift height?

No problems at all. To be honest the rear was hard to get out and back in. The 1.5” front teraflex spacer comes with a extended bump stop. It mounts onto the axle. I thought I had a pic of it but can’t find one.

as mentioned previously you will have to reem out the bolt holes if you do shock extensions. There are many Mojave owners that do not relocate shock Mount I assume you may be ok but I did not want to over extend the shocks and possibly blow a seal.

for install this is same for rear as well. Two jack stands under the frame and floor jack under the axle. Remove lower shock bolt, brake line bracket to frame, sway bar end links and I also removed the bolt connecting the track bar to the axle. Slowly lower axle to ensure your not putting to much strain on break lines or electric components.
Its fairly easy. I highly reccomend doing so yourself so that you can learn more about how your jeep is engineered.

let me know if you may have any questions.

One last think I did use a aftermarket trackbar because my axle did shift to the drivers side. To get the bolt back into place have someone slowly turn the steering wheel until hole aligns.

Thanks,
I've tackled many suspension changes on Jeeps and Rovers. All your points are spot on.

I know this may be a lot to ask but could you post the part numbers for each of the items you have on your build list?
I am trying to identify the parts using your description and the photos you posted but that isn't always easy.

Also, you mentioned having to ream out the shock relocation brackets bolt holes. Any other modifications you had to make to get the parts to fit the Mojave?

I will try to get it all together this weekend for you. No other modifications were needed. Please shoot me a message Saturday so I remember.
