    Not a bad price. Was that installed?? Or did you do the install yourself? Where in the Bay Area did you get this, or did you order online?? I grew up in the Bay Area and about 3 hours North almost two years ago. Was just down there this past weekend in Hayward :thumbsup:

    Installed myself. Ordered most of it through a group buy last year. But headstrong is pretty darn close to best price and peace of mind if anything isn't satisfactory.

    Looks like everyones running the 2.5s. I was going to level it but decided against being super cheap but also not trying to drop 4 grand on a lift. I know i want to run fox though and don't really need much of a lift. Is there anything wrong with just running the 2.0 performance series coil over 985-02-002 and the 2.0 performance series reservoir w/ cd adjuster 985-26-116. Just leave everything else alone and get 2 inch lift in the front and no lift in the rear? Should make it level, ride better than my the factory bilsteins, give me some extra clearance up front and throw a little bit bigger tire in there? I'm new to any suspension mods, never needed them on my wrangler. I'd be 1600 in it at that point and need a diff drop or not enough lift to need it?

    Sounds like a solid plan. Forget about the diff drop.

    Should be fine. the 2.5 holds a bit more oil so it won't heat up as much but you should be fine with the 2.0. I agree with @MolonLabeTaco on the diff drop...I'm not running one on my truck and it hasn't been an issue.

    I’m running the 2.0s front and rear and I love em. Sure 2.5 or Kings would be tits but for now I’m fine.

    Don't know if you bought your stuff already, but I just put extended travel C/Os without resi and at the setting it came at (27 threads showing 1.9") my center hub to bottom fender was 21" after it settled. Im not sure exactly what that measurement was before the lift because I forgot to measure but I know it was pretty close to 21". So essentially I got almost 0 lift out of them at that setting. It leveled it out slightly. The stock rear was still a little high

    NO, I haven't bought anything yet, still doing research and holding off for now, trying to see where I can get the best deal. So, you put in extended travel coilovers, and at stock setting, they yielded NO lift?? Were these the 2.0's or 2.5's?? I guess you have some adjusting to do with the spanner wrench? Can you do that with the shocks installed or do you need to pull them off? Wondering how much more I'd need to adjust them to yield that 2" to 2.5" lift I'm looking for...

    It lifted it but not much. They’re 2.5 extended travel without resi’s. From what I’ve been told, Fox recommends to take them off the truck and use a spring compressor to adjust. I did it on the truck with a spanner and I lubed up the threads. I gave it 11 full turns. So now I’m at 38 threads showing which is around 2 3/4”. Now my center hub to bottom fender is 23. My CV boots are running a little so I may back it down a little.

    What information did they give you and others?
    Did they give you this picture stating this measurement is the max for the extended travel C/O?

    And how much does that measurement yield in lift? The same? Just under 2"?
