Mopar Stage 1 Lift Kit
In the past, Mopar had sold re-branded kits – essentially another company’s product that had the Mopar name applied to it. With this new version of the Mopar Stage 1 kit, the Mopar techs have designed it themselves from the ground up (well, except for the shocks). Overall they did a great job, and the Stage 1 – 2 inch lift kit a a great kit at an acceptable price.
To driveshaft or not to driveshaft? You’ll notice that some kits include a driveshaft – it is because on newer JK wranglers (as in 2012+) the front driveshaft can make contact with the skid plate when you are really articulating. This new driveshaft compensates for that.
Mopar Stage 1 Pros:
It won’t void your factory warranty. It’s hard to argue with that one – you can roll your Jeep off the dealership, and install this kit over the weekend and still be totally covered. You can’t say that about other lift kit brands.
*The wooden crate it comes in absolutely rocks* – this is reason enough to buy the kit.
Mopar Stage 1 cons:
The control arms aren’t adjustable, meaning you can’t dial them in to the length you want – this is largely offset because cam bolts are included in the kit, allowing some adjustment of caster. Another con for this kit are that the swaybar links don’t disconnect.
