In the last 2 weeks I have replaced my 2.5 with the 3.5. I had the opposite issue. I then put the 2.5 on my dads stock JKU

Too much weight on my 2.5 so it started to sage. Winch and 3rd row seat will bring the jeep down, along with stock side rails with ACE rock guards. along with AEV Premium bumper, rear bumper and Teraflex HD tire carrier.

I also purchased some grab bars from Carolina Metal Masters that my wife loves.


The 2.5 is a nice ride and is sitting well on my dads stock JKU with 315/70/17.
He bought this collapsable step stool for his wife.

Hi I'm new to the forum, I have a 2016 white Hard Rock just don't have the pintler Wheels like you do on it. but do have a warn Zeon 10 in my front bumper and it does not go down that much along with a belly skid plate for oil pan and transmission. I just finished my lift on Sunday night and had it lined up yesterday waiting on my AEV tire carrier to arrive so I can bring it down in the back a little. My wife is also five-foot-tall she has problems getting in it. But I would not trade out for a 2.5

I would stick with the 3.5" lift if you can. The 3.5" DualSport Suspension with 35" tires offers the best geometry that we can offer. I could recommend adding a winch and AEV Tire Carrier to help settle the weight in the back as well. To aide in getting in and out of the lifted Jeep, you can add some Grabars or other grab handles and/or Amp Research Power Steps like we add on most of our Prospector (XL) builds to help people get in and out.
