anyone running this lift kit?

I have a 2015 2 door JK and want to lift it with out going crazy. It is my daily driver but I do off-road some. Was looking at the teraflex 2.5 Amazon has this deal below

https://www.amazon.com/Teraflex-Wran...x+2.5+lift+kit

I was running OME on my old TJ but having trouble finding the right lift for my JK. I also have not yet decided on 33 or 35 inch tires, Any opinions? The deal looks good and it comes with a free steering stabilizer.

I've seen a ton of great reviews on that teraflex kit, you can look that one up on extremeterrain.com lots of people lof that kit.

I've been looking at that kit as well but the love of the Rancho 9000xl adjustable shocks has me looking at this one with progressive springs, for $499. usually

Teraflex puts a pretty good lift together.

If your running 17" wheels, you have plenty of choices in between that will get you around 34s. Look at 295/70R18, 305/70Rfr17, and 285/75R17. The 295 is a tall 33", a 305 is about a 34", and the 285/75 is a 34" tire.

That's the lift I'm running. It's been great on and off road. Very solid, decent flex, and easy to install.

Kolak is a Teraflex dealer - have been for over 15 years now. And I've been a Vendor here on the forum for over a decade. I'd really like to assist with your lift and I have great pricing too I can also discuss other possibilities such as Old Man Emu just in case you want different spring rates. And I also have other shock options.

PM me here on the forum or email me at kolak@aol.com and we'll chat

I'm running a Teraflex lift but went with different shocks. Very happy with the quality of the lift. The only other thing you may need is an adjustable front track bar to recenter the axle.

It's a great kit, but I would recommend that you make sure you get the one that includes an axle mounted rear sway bar bracket instead of the frame mounted kit. Your link had the axle mounted bracket pictured, but you might want to make sure before you buy the other one. The axle mounted bracket is a little stronger.

I run that kit on our '16 with the Rancho CA relocation brackets. Excellent ride!
We went with a 315/70/17 and they clear fine, even under full flex.

Since we cannot purchase directly from Rancho, any idea when places like quadratec will have good stock of these kits?

For those whom cannot find the kit on quadratec.com so far it's on their site, just hard to find. here is a link

We launched the 4 door system using the progressive coils about 6 weeks or so ago.
The 2 door systems should be out real soon.
Quadratec can get it at any time, they just need to place the order (and they may have already).
I do know people have picked them up from AOR (Allen's Off-Road) and Krawl Off-Road. I think both these are forum sponsors.

Thanks for mentioning me! Oh yes, I deal in Rancho products. The new progressive springs sound intriguing for sure.
