    LOL!! No problem. Here's a sample of a lift install that I did years ago. It should give you a really good idea of what you would need to do on a JL as well.

    I'll try to get my JL install write-up done as soon as I can. Definitely always best to do the work yourself so that you know how to work on it on the trail

    Can't wait to see it all installed. Confirms my decision that when (not if ) I get the second Jeep it'll be a JLUR and I'll be going with this lift. I enjoy the long arm on my JKUR but it took so long to install. A lot can change in 5 years though.... To the poster about installing on jack stands. I did my long arm in my garage on jack stands this could probably be done in a day though..haha.

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
    Question, since the JL is obviously different and a tad longer. May be a dumb question, But will the Old Evo short arm control arms work on the JL? Did Mel have to make all new control arms for the JL lift you have there?

    Probably not, now that I look at the picture more. Looks like your new control arms are completely different then the JL enforcer arms.

    It might not be necessary with only 2.5" of lift.

    ^^^This^^^ Plus I believe EVO typically uses an axle side trackbar relocation bracket for axle correction on the JK Enforcer kits (DL flip kits on front) instead of adjustable track bar.

    Axle re-centering is needed with any lift if you like having the axles centered under the frame. Its 8th grade Geometry ...

    I realize a 2.5 is all u need for it to fit 37’s on a JL. I’m just trying to learn not down playing anyone or anything. Eddie has more knowledge is his pinky that I have. Was just kinda comparing his other two which one has 40’s and mobi has 37’s. It’s all awesome. Just joining in and trying to learn. No matter what jet li will look even more awesome!!!

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.
