Hello I just registered with your site. I have been off roading in Big Bear for years. A club I sometimes help out is responsible for maintaining Gold Mountain.

Anyways, I have a 2007 Jeep Wrangler. I recently bought a 2" lift kit from superlift. I have the mechanical know-how to install it. I just dont know where some of the items are, or what they look like, that need to be removed to install the spacers. Can anybody help me out? Thanks.

i HAVE A 2007 4 DOOR jk 'X'. It is stock. I have had it on Gold mounting a few times (all obstacles; bypass on the rock garden). Had no issues. I spoke with a guy who went on the run wih us. He had the same Jeep as I. He was running 35s with a 2" lift. He said he had to do some minor cutting on the rear wheel wells, but that was it. I am setting this up for 33s to start. I will the picture of the lift kit as my avatar. It is made by Superlift.

Is it a body lift or a spacer lift that goes on top of the springs?

Well V you just missed out on a good Gold Mountain run two weeks ago. See the "trail Reports" area for pictures and so on.

Yes, that is the kit. Very basic. There are just a few things that I have to remove/loosen before I can install it.

We havent done anything to change he rock garden on Gold Mountain in awhile. Is it still difficult or does the whole thing look flat now?

It depends on what line you take, a guy in a TJ with 31s in our group went through it with out any problems.

Well sir,.. if this is the case then I recommend a shop to do this for you or at least a shop manual for reference. Other option,... roll under your jeep and look and learn. I remember installing my first suspension lift years ago. Not just a job but an adventure for such things and a spacer/spring lift like you have is actually quite easy compared to a suspension lift. My finding is that two small ratchet straps looped top to bottom on opposing sides of the spring used to compress the spring so that you may install the spacers above the spring work well if you jack up one side of the axle first to take the stress off the other side. If I can help I will....Matt
Also, there is a great deal of pride that you get from doing improvements on your jeep VS having others do it for any price as well as the fact that if anything ever happens on the trail you know what that sound is and what is wrong and what to do....."HAPPY TRAILS"....Matt
