Teraflex Jk Wrangler Leveling kit

Another Noob question about lifts.

I am staying with the stock wheels and tires (P255/75R17 Goodyear Wranglers on 17" x 7.5" Aluminum Wheels), but I would like to level out the stance and don't mind the additional inch or two. I don't want to run 35s. I use my 4 door unlimited as my daily driver 90% of the time on the road taking me to work. I do play on the weekends but we are talking trails not rocks.

So any one installed or have thoughts about this lift?

Thanks for your help.

Holy overkill!! - yeah, I'd stay away from that. If you're just looking for an inch or less, you don't need all that garbage. You can easily find a set of 20mm coil spacers from OME all over the web for about a 1/3 of that price - maybe even a lot less than that.

WARNING - you will get hooked. If you think you might even in the slightest bit want a lift, get a lift. I did the same thing. I just wanted my JK leveled, then I wanted 2", then that wasn't enough. I'm running OME springs now with some other stuff that I wish I had bought to begin with.

You are probably right tricked919. I'm definately not headed down the bigger lift, bigger tire, gear swap road, so this is probably overkill. I was just wondering if anyone was running it yet and what they think of it since it's only $129 and it looks like a good height/rake correction for stock tires. I'll probably just leave her stock for a while and think about it for a while. Heck I only have 1000 miles on it so far, and have only been in 4wd twice!

Thanks for the input!

The kit is def not overkill and is well worth the money if your just looking for a small increase in height. It lifts the front end 2" which makes the longer sway bar links almost neccesity and will help with articulation. I'll prob be getting one here soon

Don't think it is overkill. With the stock Rubi tires 2" doesn't look bad and that is only adding 1" to the rear. You would hardly notice it. But as tricked mentioned if you just want level get some small spacers for the front only for $40-$50.

Man, you pretty much sold me on this idea!
I have a winch/bumper (weight!) in front, so there's rake, but I bought a new set of skins 5 months ago, so I don't want to lift it to the point of the "doughnut" tire look.
This TF is cheap, easy, and temporary, til I wear out my tires and make some money!

Does 2" put you anywhere near needing Adjustable Track Bars? Since I have an auto how about front driveline boot problems?

no you won't have any problems with any of that. You probably wouldn't even have problems with the swaybar links but they are int he package anyway just in case

Thanks Mattman. As I stated in my OP, this thing is my daily driver and spends most of it's time on asphalt. As much as I want to improve the looks and ride height, I don't want to insert any driveablility or reliability issues.

I have a 4-door Rubi with the electronic sway bar disconnects...

Are there any issues with installing the longer links (i.e. will the electric discos still work as advertised)?

Thanks,
Mike

I think the stock length would be fine for the most part... but I thought the kit came with those shock relocation brackets too

Rough Country has a 2.5 front 2 rear w/shock extensions for 140. I think they are a vendor and you can get a discount for being a member. A little higher than what you are after but close. Just another option, there are quite a few BB's out ther for you to choose from.
