For those of you who've been wanting to see more pics of what JET Li looks like now that he's standing on an EVO 2.5" Boost Stage 4 Lift Kit and wearing a set of 37x13.50 Cooper STT Pros mounted on KMC XD231's, the following pics are meant for you. So that it isn't missed, we did install the optional 8 EVO adjustable control arms as opposed to running their drop brackets and for now, we are running their shock extensions. Anyway, here are a few shots of what our Jeep JL Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited looks like all grown up - I hope you enjoy. :cool:

First up, some all around shots of JET Li.

https://www.wayalife.com/photos/upload/2018/03/13/20180313111328-7f3d18ca.jpg

And now, a few shots of the lift kit installed starting off with a view of the passenger side front so that you can see the coil spacer and bump stop extension.
https://www.wayalife.com/photos/upload/2018/03/13/20180313111338-7d69502c.jpg

Shot of the same thing only on the driver side.
https://www.wayalife.com/photos/upload/2018/03/13/20180313111335-376982af.jpg

Here you can get a better view of the shock relocation bracket installed.

https://www.wayalife.com/photos/upload/2018/03/13/20180313111351-0da72e2e.jpg

This shot shows off the adjustable upper and lower EVO control arms.
https://www.wayalife.com/photos/upload/2018/03/13/20180313111359-2a6b6a5f.jpg

This is the front brake line relocation bracket.
https://www.wayalife.com/photos/upload/2018/03/13/20180313111404-408f4fd0.jpg

Here's a shot of the rear adjustable EVO lower and upper control arms.

A side view to give you a better look at the shock relocation bracket and new adjustable control arms.
https://www.wayalife.com/photos/upload/2018/03/13/20180313111501-c7c06152.jpg

And here you can see the rear bump stop extension installed on top of the axle.
https://www.wayalife.com/photos/upload/2018/03/13/20180313111434-f63e6ba4.jpg

On the passenger side rear, you can see both the bump stop extension and coil spacer.
https://www.wayalife.com/photos/upload/2018/03/13/20180313111437-c94e78bb.jpg

Finally, here's a view of the shock relocation bracket.
https://www.wayalife.com/photos/upload/2018/03/13/20180313111442-e10d1b9b.jpg

And there you have it - the first all around pics of JET Li right after getting his EVO 2.5" Boost Stage 4 Lift Kit and new shoes installed. I hope you like what you see.

It looks like the rear shock sits high with the lower control arm being the low point.
So is there more clearance there?
I just saw it’s a bracket.

Also, I want one!!!

Looks very natural in this form. Amazing how capable this rig will be as the stock form exceeded my expectations👍. We all seem to shoot for more, but if this works with a little tuning, you may have discovered the new unicorn 🦄 and a budget build. 37ís vs stock gear ratios and axle strength is yet to be determined but itís phenomenal how capable it was stock:thumb:

If we pulled the fender liners out... I bet it'd be possible too. :crazyeyes:

LOL!! Yes, we installed shock relocation brackets :crazyeyes:
Also, you really need one :yup:


Looks amazing! May have mentioned this before but some serious Jeep envy going on over here

LOL!! Hoping you can get one sooner than later :cool:


Looks really good. What are your plans for the spate carrier?

I was hoping to mount it on the tailgate but without removing the bumper, I've found that would be impossible. I have since ordered the Mopar tire carrier kit but who knows if or when that'll ever come in. So, I got talking to the owner of LoD who happens to be a long time friend of mine and he's sending me a prototype relocation bracket/spacer. Gonna give that a try. :yup:


It's sooo clean! I really like the way it came out.. did those wheels not come with any kind of caps? or did they and you just chose not to put them on?

No caps but I don't really care. I know Tony got something that works well though. :yup:


Looks Great! Did you already regear for the 37's? Sorry if I missed it.

HAPPYTRAILS

I don't think there are any gears available for an M210 or M220 or at least, not as of yet. That being said, the 8-speed automatic seems to do a great job of pushing these bigger tires. :yup:

To be fair, they "just" fit but then, that's all I would ever hope for. Anything more would just be a waste. :yup:


Wow looks awesome[emoji2] question EDDIE did jeep change the bolt pattern on wheels or same as JK???

It's still the same 5x5 bolt pattern BUT the wheel studs are now 14mm. In other words, you can't just run "any" 5x5 wheel - it'd have to be one with big enough mounting holes to fit the larger studs.


Looks great. These JLs are growing on me. Too bad I currently have two JKs that donít get wheeled enough. [emoji12]

LOL!! The JL is super nice but you don't need one. :cool:


Same bolt pattern, different size lug.

Stud size but technically, the lugs are bigger too. You now need a 22mm socket as opposed to a 19mm to get them off. :yup:


Looks killer!

Thanks :)

We are eager to push the limits with this setup. If there are any weak points, I'm sure we'll find out sooner than later just as we did on Moby back in the day :crazyeyes:


Looks amazing. That is how they should come from the factory.

LOL!! At least as an option if nothing else. :yup:

Much nicer!! Unlike the JK where you bump the shifter to the side, on the JL, you move the shifter to the side and then push forward or back to up shift or down shift. You can see how it works on this video at about 9:20

I spotted Jet Li and Moby today in Vegas off Cheyenne and Lamb on my way to work. I fanboy'd a little and tried to take a photo, but I couldn't get my phone out in time :drool:

I assume you were leaving Motec?
