2" Spacer Lift 2018+ JL Wrangler
2″ Spacer Lift for JL Wrangler
AEV’s 2″ Spacer Lift is an economical, feature packed solution for JL owners looking to add larger tires and improve ground clearance without having to replace their factory coil springs and shocks. The AEV JL 2″ Spacer Lift includes unique front and rear polyurethane coil spacers with integrated isolators and locating tabs, front and rear bump stop extensions, extended length front sway bar end links, corrosion-resistant e-coated and powder coated front and rear shock extension brackets. AEV even goes one step further and takes care of the electronics, this kit includes AEV’s new ProCal SNAP for painless speedometer recalibration and more.
This 2″ Spacer Lift has been engineered to integrate seamlessly with the JL Wrangler. It retains the quality and tuning of the JL’s factory shock absorbers, which are often superior to many of the aftermarket shocks sometimes included with similar systems in this price range. The shock extension brackets allow the factory shocks to be used without limiting wheel travel and the front sway bar end links have been extended to ensure bind-free functionality.
AEV’s ProCal SNAP is a simple, electronic recalibration module that plugs into your vehicle’s OBDII diagnostic port. It utilizes the stereo’s audio equalizer to input the numerical values for your new tire size- saving you time and money by not having to make a trip to the dealership for speedometer recalibration. The ProCal SNAP also has the ability to recalibrate for axle gear ratio as well as transfer case gear ratio changes.
AEV’s 2″ Spacer Lift provides a more aggressive appearance and without sacrificing the comfortable factory ride quality that drivers have come to appreciate in modern day Jeeps, especially the JL Wrangler.

- Why would I want a spacer lift over a full suspension system?
A spacer lift is an economical alternative for anyone looking to add larger tires for a more aggressive look but does not intend on doing much technical off-roading or need any additional load capability. A spacer lift will perform much like the factory suspension both on and off the road, which on a JL Wrangler is quite impressive!
- There are a ton of spacer lifts on the market, what makes the AEV Spacer Lift unique?
We paid very close attention to the coil spring spacers themselves. We designed the coil spring spacer to feature an integrated isolator and locating tabs to ensure that the coil spring is properly indexed. Additionally, AEV's Spacer Lift INCLUDES a ProCal SNAP electronic speedometer recalibration module. This easy to use module plugs into the OBD diagnostic port and allows the user to adjust tire size, axle gear ratio and even transfer case gear ratio directly through the vehicle's stereo equalizer! This saves you the time and money that a trip to the dealership to have them recalibrate your speedometer would cost you. The AEV 2" Spacer Lift is hands-down, the most hassle-free way to add larger tires to your JL Wrangler.
- Does this spacer lift fit right hand drive (RHD) JL Wranglers?
Yes, our 2" Spacer Lift is designed to fit BOTH right and left hand drive JL Wranglers.
- What is the ProCal SNAP?
The ProCal SNAP is a simple, electronic recalibration module that plugs into your vehicle’s OBDII diagnostic port. It utilizes the stereo’s audio equalizer to input the numerical values for your new tire size- saving you time and money by not having to make a trip to the dealership for speedometer recalibration. The ProCal SNAP also has the ability to recalibrate for axle gear ratio as well as transfer case gear ratio changes.
- Why do I not need to replace my shocks?
We have found that the OE shocks are actually higher quality and better performing than many of the entry level aftermarket shocks out there. For that reason, we felt that it was better to provide shock extension brackets that allow the OE shocks to be retained, rather than include an inferior aftermarket shock or make you source your own.
- What size tire can I fit with the spacer lift?
We recommend up to a 37" tall tire on models with the high clearance fender flare option (the North American Rubicon for example) and up to a 35" tire on models with the standard fender flare option. Aftermarket wheels, wheel spacers and/or minor trimming may be necessary depending on what wheel & tire combination you are planning to install on your Wrangler. AEV's JL specific wheels or aftermarket wheels with a similar backspacing/offset are recommended.
- Does this fit all trim levels and models?
Yes, this spacer lift is designed for all 2/4Dr JL Wrangler models, as well as international/RHD models.
- How many hours will it take me to install this lift? Will I need any special tools?
Installation time is approximately 3 hours, with no special tools required.
- Will your spacer lift give me death wobble?
No but it is good to be aware that due to a host of variables, JL Wrangler’s have been known to exhibit tire shimmy (death wobble) and it can be exacerbated by larger tires and tire balance issues. We strongly recommend using quality tires like BFGoodrich or tires of similar/less weight and having them professionally mounted and balanced on quality wheels.
- What is the warranty?
The 2" JL Spacer Lift carries AEV's Lifetime Warranty. This covers all of AEV's suspension related components as well as the ProCal SNAP.
