JK lift opinions

Hi guys new to this I just got me a 2012 JK and I would love to do a lift just not sure what to get. I always wanted a vehicle with a lift so I would love a great lift that lasts a long time preferably 5 years at least. I was recommended the teraflex 3" lift so I did some research so I think I want there 3" lift with 8 flex arms. So any recommendations would be great I also want to run 35s on my JK. Thanks

Take the stock *** Jeep and wheel the snot out of it first. You'd be thoroughly surprised at how hard it is to get them stuck if you just use your head

Sounds like ORW quoted you....lol

Do a search and decide for yourself there's a lot of good lifts that aren't carried local....synergy, Metalcloak, rockkrawler etc....

speaking from MY personal experience. Don't buy a teraflex lift or anything else else of theres for that matter. Overpriced dog ****. Do your homework, and buy it ONCE!!! If the nice one is expensive, there's a reason... It works... Dont skimp and buy the 1/2 arse one because you'll just be buying 2 lifts at the least...What are your goals with your jeep anyways? to use/abuse or to just clear some street tires?

maybe this one http://shop.savvyoffroad.com/product...3&categoryId=2 assuming it's a 4 dr.. He didn't say. And for 2300.00 that's one hell of a nice lift. Everything you need minus shocks.... so figure another 900-1000 for good shocks.

I did talk to ORW here in San Diego they did recommend teraflex and rock crawler. I would like a lift that won't void my warranty since I only have 19,000 miles. I plan on enjoying the roads as well as some occasional off-road once I meet some more off road guys. I have joined the san diego jeep club on Facebook and they have occasional runs. I was looking at the teraflex with the 8 flex arms and 3" lift then some mickey Thompson wheels and prolly mickey Thompson Baja mtz tires. Unless there is something better out there. I would love to do it all myself and stick around a 5k $ budget for lift tires and wheels if possible so keep up the information so I can learn some more before I purchase. Thanks guys.
