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.
