Jeep Wrangler 2011-2017, Shock Absorber Extensions for 2.5"-4.0" Lifted Vehicles by ReadyLIFT®. Quantity: 2 per Pack. These U-bolts will let you attach the axle tube to the leaf spring pack with a 4" lift kit block in place, effectively lifting the vehicle 4". In addition, these U-bolts are designed with enough extra length to accommodate the spring pack from the camper package, in addition to a 4" spacer block.

Adding spacers between the leaf springs and the axle is one of the simplest ways to raise the ride height of your truck. Whether you want to level the truck out, raise it a few inches for some tire clearance, or reach for the skies, you'll probably be needing longer U-bolts. You may need to make a number of other modifications as well, like longer spring shackles, steering mods to keep the geometry correct, and realigning the driveshaft to keep the u-joints straight, but a longer U-bolt is probably in your future.
Another mod that often requires a longer U-bolt is adding helper springs for extra-load carrying capacity. While technically not a lift, the extra spring pack, sometimes including a spacer, means the stock U-bolts just aren't long enough. Remember, for safety, any fastener should have a full two threads protruding from the nut when it's torqued down to ensure the threaded joint is able to develop full strength. These premium U-bolts are 365 mm in length and use 14mm flange nuts (included). Not for dual-wheel trucks.
Henderson NV is smack in the middle of a lot of off-roading activity. That's where ReadyLIFT® is based, in order to be close to their customers and their needs. About 12 years ago, ReadyLIFT founder and CEO Scott Poncher realized that there was a market for people who wanted to lift their trucks only a few inches, not the six inches or more that most lift kits were set up to do. A few inches were enough to make the truck's stance level (instead of drooped down in front, as seems to be common today), or to accommodate slightly larger wheels and tires. There was no option for these customers that didn't raise the truck more than necessary, was easy to install and reasonably priced. And so ReadyLIFT was born to bring a line of reasonably-priced, but still highly-engineered and well-made moderate-rise lift kits to market.
