Help me out please

Looking for a proper lift for my 2dr JK. I want to be able to fit 35x12.50r15. Iwas looking at a TeraFlex 3" lift kit (http://www.teraflex.biz/jk-wrangler-...arms-1711.html) but a lot of people are telling me the 2.5" budget boost with flat flares would even work fine. I'm just worried about rubbing and also i am replacing the front bumper with a stubby winch bumper (http://www.roughcountry.com/jeep-jk-...mper-1054.html) and adding a 9500lbs winch and there will also be a spare on the back so try and keep in mind the extra weight. Jeep is mostly used for everyday use but it loves to go mudding on the weekends (no crawling). I'd really appreciate it if you guys could give me a hand, thanks.

I have no experience with that particular kit, but based on what i have seen, that is a perfect kit for a 35 if you are set on teraflex.

Keep in mind you will need new wheels or spacers and a new adjustable front track bar.

At that lift height you will need exhaust spacers, new y pipe, or front driveshaft if you have a 12+.

Maybe some others will chime in, but based on your previous posts, you have all the information you need.

You can easily clear 35's with a 2.5" lift and a budget boost is a good way to go if you don't have the budget for a full lift. If I were you I would stay away from 3" unless you are ready to invest in some control arms, trackbar etc...At 2.5" you don't need that stuff. Here is my 2 door with about 3.5" of lift and 35's. Plenty of room for 37's. Just note ate that height I DO have, a front trackbar and rear trackbar tower, control arms (front lower and rear upper) and aftermarket driveshafts.

Oh and you will want an aftermarket tire carrier to hold that 35" spare.

How is the budget boost? does it make any difference in handling/riding/offroading/roughness? And should i go with a 1" body too?

Personally, I would go with a coil lift over the budget boot. The BB lifts reuse the stock coils and over time, they are not designed to hold all the extra weight. Most of the time you will get some sagging and will be right back at looking at lifts... I say do it right the first time.

Now, TeraFlex is a great option. For 35's, I would stick more to the 2.5" line:
http://www.krawloff-road.com/product_p/tfjk25shocks.htm

That kit will come with everything you need except if your JK is a 2012+. If so, you will need one of these also by TeraFlex:
http://www.krawloff-road.com/product_p/tf-2610000.htm

Then, someone mentioned a carrier. Correct. The stock carrier wont hold the weight either. Over time, it can damage the hinges and the tailgate. TeraFlex makes a great option for this. That way, you would have TeraFlex all around!

Oh course there is other options out there. If you have any questions, please let us know! We are more than happy to help...

I've read almost nothing but good reviews on the budget boost especially for the price it doesn't seem like it can be beat. And with the shock extensions it works great according to the reviews

The budget boost retains factor springs so the ride is similar to stock. I would advise against the shock extensions though. I would rather have good shocks for a 2.5" lift. Even then you are still below $1000 with some Bilstein 5100 or something.

If you do have a high budget then Rock Krawler 2.5" Max Travel.

Buy from Jason though when you are ready. He is a good dude, great vendor and will cut you a deal.
