    Question My upcoming JT build: Evo Mfg suspension/King 2.5 shock fitment

    I'm in the process of ordering everything to start my JT build when I get home to the USA again and have a few questions, mainly about shock fitment. I'm planning on the Evo Mfg 2.5" Enforcer lift with the Evo Spec King 2.5 shocks. I've seen that a set of shock relocation brackets is available for the JL, for larger body shocks. I'm assuming the JT isn't any different up front suspension wise when compared to the JL. Anyone know if these 2.5" body King shocks require relocation brackets to fit the Jeep JT? I don't see the brackets included with the lift kit, so part of me wants to assume I don't need them. I'll be using the KMC XD232 Robby Gordon bead lock wheels with 3.5" of backspacing and 37/12.50/17 Nitto Ridge Grapplers, so tire to shock clearance won't be an issue. I mainly curious about shock body to frame clearance.

    Thanks.

    I may end up running a different shock. I really want to run the bolt on coil overs, but the rear kit isnít out yet for the JT. I might just run the Fox 2.0 shocks instead of spending the coin on the King 2.5s. With the Evo 2.5 stage 4 suspension kit Iíll have all 8 control arms and essentially be ready for coil overs when I want to upgrade.

ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
