Looking at all the pictures of the mopar lift, it’s weird how some look level and some look high in the rear.

Can the beadlock in those wheels be powder coated? Is it plastic or metal?
I am debating between these wheels or the Mopar simulated beadlocks.

They were mounted street legal no beadlock. The black ring is a hard plastic I believe. I know Dirty Life offers a bead lock ring that you will need to put on which makes me think this ring can come off via the bolts.

Thanks! Makes my decision easier. I want to get the ring powder coated to match so I’ll just go with Mopar.

I spend days at a time 'wheeling Baja. That said, 2" doesn't provide disconnected uptravel for a 37" tire judging by these pictures. It looks like a 4.5" lift is the route I plan to take.

It’s a fun quick trail. You shouldn’t have any problems.

Ok, mopar lift on, gave me 3 inches all around give or take. I need a bigger torque wrench for 200ftlbs. 37 Cooper stt pro. I love these tires, factory LE wheels with spacers.

Looks great!

Did you do spacers due to rubbing with the 37s?

That's what I was thinking too. Are these 2" lifts just for the front or do they lift a 4 corners?

You get 4 springs, 4 shocks, the 2 lower FCAs and some extensions for the sway bars/other miscellaneous hardware. I put a winch on front of mine and added a 3/4" puck to level it out some.

Anyone have a picture of a Rubicon Gladiator with 35’s on stock wheels but no lift? I have read that 35’s will fit without a lift. Any one try this yet?
