    Definitely a lot of steps and I had a couple issues I had to get around.

    1. Passenger wiper arm would not come loose
    2. Rear crossmember was having issues aligning
    3. Stripped a bolt on rear control arm mount
    4. Rear spacers were too tight

    Wife was complaining about a rattling noise. I thought it might be the exhaust making contact with the control arm because it's pretty tight back there.

    Well, i feel like a dumbass. It was the sway bar bolt not completely torqued down allowing for movement. Torqued it and good to go now.

    Question

    I you have a trailhawk do you need a lift kit as it already has some lift factory installed? I like that the lift kit gives you an extra 1.5 inches to allow you to install 2 inches taller. Over all you get 3.5 inches of extra clearance. With this lift kit in a non trailhawk renegade. Can the same be said for a trail rated Jeep?

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.
