    Can I take a 3.5" lift off of my 13' 2 door and put it on my 14' 4 door?

    I have a 2013 Wrangler Rubicon 2 door jeep that I absolutely love, I recently had a new baby boy and needed a little more room. I went an bought a 2014 Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited 4 door. My 4 door is stock, but my 2 door has a 3.5" Rubicon Express lift with the coil over fox shocks. I'm looking to sell the 2 door and build my 4 door. I was wondering if I could take the lift off of my 2 door and put it on my 4 door before I get rid of it. I understand I will need to replace the springs due to the heaver 4 door model. What other issues could I run into? Is this possible? Would there be any issues with drive shaft length or anything? Any help I can get would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance! Happy Jeeping!

    If you plan on switching over aftermarket driveshafts then you may have issues, but moving over your lift won't be an issue. You jjst won't be quite as tall. If we ever are able to have a baby, I'll probably do the same.

    That shouldn't be a problem, I am running 35's but plan to put on some flat fenders before long. I'm sending you our good luck baby vibes! IMG_0234.JPG

    This may sound dumb but quit trying to have a baby and just have some fun and it will happen, that's how we did it best of luck

    Congrats! I switched from a 2dr to a 4dr last May for the same reason.

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.
