AEV 2.5 vs. Mopar 2" lift

Looking for some input on lifts. I am looking for a 2-2.5" lift. Does anyone running any of these two lifts have any input on Ride on and off road or general thoughts. I have look d at Clayton 2.5 but for 4K installed I think that is an over kill for the kind of wheeling I will be doing. Any thought would be great! Thanks

Mopar kits are just rebranded kits from other makers, depending on the amount of lift and who they are buying from this month. Sometimes they're Superlift, sometimes AEV, sometimes Rubicon Express, sometimes others. Don't know who currently supplies their 2" kit, but be assured that you can get the same kit for less without the Mopar sticker on the box.
That said, Teraflex 2.5" kits are quite popular. If you research in the JK tech forum, you will find hundreds of threads on the topic...

Look at the Teraflex 2.5" kit. It's the most complete, low budget, quality kit you can get. It is also the building block for a more advanced lift if you go that route later on. With shocks, you are under $800.

The only extras you may need are adjustable quick disconnects (if you want to disconnect to get more flex) and possibly an adjustable front track bar. At 2.5", most JK's are still in spec for geometry but if yours is not after the lift, a set of geometry correction brackets can be added.

Agree...Teraflex with Fox shocks are and standard here in Ohio for most people.

While I can't speak for JKs that others above have commented on, I'm surprised by this comment from a TJ owner. If you went over to TJ Tech and asked about Teraflex lifts I think the general consensus you'd find is bottom of the barrel.

Everyone that I know that does have this setup is on a JK or JKU and have no complaints. My TJ is outfitted with Savvy springs and Bilstein 5100 shocks and rides extremely well. We also own a 2016 JKU so I am unbiased when it comes to what is better for one Wrangler vs. another.

Within the TJ forum in my opinion you have too many users that are afraid to try something that is not tried and true, I myself fall into this category when researching parts. Hence why I have Savvy spring and the 5100's. Our club goes offroading every couple of weeks and I have seen from experience that the Teraflex and Fox shocks are the best bang for the buck and here of no complaints. When it comes time for me to purchase a lift for our JKU I will either go this route or all in with a Metalcloak game changer lift.

When it comes to Teraflex I think its actually the reverse, at least for TJs. It's been around too long and there is too much information out there. There are better options at that price point.
