    It's the Avid Essentials 2.0 Economy lift kit. Boy was it a pain to install. But overall a great learning experience! Find me on Instagram! @nerd766 20180922_184044.jpg 20180922_184033.jpg 20180923_130526.jpg 20180924_105705.jpg 20180923_150935.jpg

    Thanks guys!

    I'm running 235/70r16's. And yes, I have custom hub centric spacers/adapters that are 0.75 inches thick. It was only a pain to install the rear strut spacers. The hole of which you insert the socket into to put the bolt in was just way too small! I had to search through all my tools AND my friends tools to find a socket that was so thin walled that it could fit in there. We finally found one, but it kept getting stuck in there and was constantly separating itself from the extension to my rachet. Picture having to do this three different times per spacer. That was a pain!

    Thats when you take a grinder to the thinnest wall socket you have and make your own custom fit hah

    Just installed the 1.5" list in my Sport this last weekend and had the same problem! Found that a 13 mm crowfoot was the trick to getting them tight.

    Your Jeep looks great!
