    A LITTLE LIFT for JET Li : EVO MFG 2.5" JL Boost Stage 4 w/Shock Extensions

    WooHoo - when it rains, it pours!! Got another visit from Brown Santa and this time around, he brought JET Li, our 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited, a brand new EVO MFG 2.5" JL Boost Stage 4 Lift Kit complete with shock extensions. After talking to Mel, we've been assured this kit will give us the lift we need to clear 37's and will be all set for when they come out with coils, shocks and steering components. Here are a few shots of what everything looks like

    First up, here's a couple of shots of all the gift wrapped boxes that Brown Santa delivered.




    And now, here's a few shots of what all the parts we got look like.






    Ooo la la - such beefy control arms complete with Johnny Joints.








    Coil spacers.


    Bump stop extensions.


    Shock extensions.




    And a final shot of all the hardware.


    And there you have it, our little lift for Jet Li. Super excited to get this thing installed!

    EVO-3001S4-EXT

    The EVO MFG 2.5” JL Boost Suspension systems lift your 2018+ Jeep Wrangler JL 2.5”s. The JL Boost kits are specifically designed to lift your JL and maintain factory spring rate, compliance and ride quality while having the option of retaining factory shocks, maintaining full wheel travel with use of shock extensions (part number EXT kits) or without shock extensions to allow for use of your choice of aftermarket 2/2.5” lift shocks. In using rigid steel coil spacers we maintain the factory ride quality without effecting or lowering spring rate like the alternative compressible plastic or poly urethane spacers. EVO MFG JL Boost kits are available in multiple configurations to suit your needs
    and budget and are upgradable down the road. These Boost kits will fit up to a 37” tires on Rubicon Model JLs or 35” tires on Sahara and Sport/S.

    The EVO MFG 2.5" JL Boost and Overland Boost are very easy to install using normal tools. No drilling or cutting (optional rear shock extensions require one minor drill). They require no driveshaft or exhaust modifications. Simple Bolt on installation.

    That’s great man... kinda weird to see a Quality lift laid out on the table with No springs... but will fit 37’s.... I’m curious what the frame height is with this lift on the JLU, as compared to a 3” enforcer on the JKU.

    LOL!! No kidding. No springs and no shocks but just about everything else under the sun

    Don't know if I can give you comparison numbers but we are taking before and after measurements of everything.

    Hoping to have it installed by the end of the week. Documenting everything just takes a lot of time and slows everything up.

    That's awesome. I didn't realize that there was such a thing as rigid spacers. Makes sense though.

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.
