Save the time and cash from having to re buy.
    Basically in stock form, how much do you expect the EVO lift will add w/o the weight of bumper and winch? Wouldn't want to end up nose-high per se.

    I didn't take actual measurements, but this is the EVO leveling kit. Stock front bumper, no winch, EVO armor(steel). ImageUploadedByWAYALIFE1459722247.072520.jpg

    I don't think you would be nose up, but not sure.

    I think a guy on here actually put a bigger spacer in the rear b/c he thought he was nose up.

    Thanks for the comments, and pics. Appreciated. LasVegasJK your photo was good illustration. Leaning toward EVO, just need to wrap up taxes today then do final research.

    One last question, hard to find a clean answer sometimes: After doing these leveling lifts, was an alignment necessary? Did you do it (or not) and what'd you think of the outcome?

    For an inch or so of lift, I wouldn't expect a material impact. But...well, that's why I ask<g>.

    Alignment not needed. I just installed a leveling kit on my friend's JKU and nothing needed adjustment. Even the steering wheel remained centered....

    The only thing I adjusted was the front swaybar links. I used JKS Quicker disconnects for 0-2" lift.
    Didn't need an alignment, steering wheel remained centered.

    Another EVO kit. Yep, same here. The sway bar was at 14-15* for me. My steering was off but was later diagnosed as a bad bushing in my factory front LCA.

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.
