One of the last major upgrades I needed to make to my Jeep was a proper lift. I have been happily running the Teraflex 2.5″ “Budget Boost” but we all know those do not offer the benefits of a real lift.
The install is cutely referred to as “bolt on” but there is very little bolt on about this. It actually really irritates me that it is branded as such.
Evo should consider this a “hybrid solution” that requires minimal cutting and easy welding.
You will spend countless hours grinding off stock frame parts and drilling new holes. No instructions are provided (none as in ZERO, NADA) so you will also spend a good amount of time with puzzle pieces and counting hardware parts to see what bolts go where.
So I wanted to write this huge post as a way to help those that are about to undertake this install. Hopefully my tips and tricks will save you time and frustration. Grab a cold one, sit down, and read through this post before starting your own kit.
