    Bolt on coilovers on a 2 door

    ok im thinking out loud here as i dont think i will ever need coilovers being from the east coast but hopefully this can help other 2 door owners looking into coilovers.

    my main concern is with the rear. of course the best course of action to solve that would be the evo lever but lets pretend it is out of ones budget. do you have to cut into the tub and mount the coilovers inside or can you mount it in the factory location? could you run 12" bolt on up front and still obtain the same amount of travel with say the 10" bolt ons in the rear? is it best to keep things even by doing 10, 12, or 14" f/r instead of doing what i said prior? i ask cause us 2 door guys dont have a lot of trunk room so obviously cutting into the tub is a no no.

    The EVO bolt on kit doesn't require any cutting into the tub.

    After reading many posts, and exchanging a few pms with eddie, ultimately this is the route ill be going myself, thats a long ways down the line though. I did price it out and was surprised, i thought it would be more expensive to do...

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
