    Default Who still makes a 2" lift kit for the KJ?

    Hi all,

    As the title says, who still makes or import them?

    Bought a weekend fun car. 2004 KJ with 165k on the oddo.
    No serious stuff, but a lift will be nice. I have searched through some of the old threads, but seems I'm hitting a dead end.

    EFS still make them?
    JK Accessories perhaps?

    Please point me in a direction.

    Thanks

    So after some reading, I decided to import my own kit from the US.

    Went with this one.

    Looks decent

    The KJ is a whole different animal after a 2inch lift. Huge improvement.

    So, I got the lift kit installed and some new shocks.
    Also got my hands on 245/75 R16 tyres.
    I'm very happy with the end result.

    It does not look like much, but from the middle of the car to the ground is 7cm higher than before.

    Very nice,
    I'm busy rebuilding a 2002 KJ 3.7 on my YouTube channel (but the engine is dead, so replaced that with a V8 rather)
    I don't need it to be 4x4, as I have a JKU Rubi as well.

    The KJ is good, but only thing that I found an issue was the diff lock capability. But other than that, awesome vehicle and actually fun to drive.

    Is your the 2.8CRD or 3.7v6?

    I have load of spares if you ever need them, and I was about to say, can help you with spacers, but you came right already.

    Any chance you have an electric window system available? My brother in law has a 2003 2.8 and the rear window no longer stays up.

    Are you sure it's the window winder? The Jeep has a plastic clip with a worm gear that runs through the motor. Those plastic clips are known to break.

    You may need to replace this

    You may have a point here, if we lift the window to a point the system grabs a hold of the window and turns it up but then the window "drops" after a while. Will check it out
