New Rubicon Unlimited Owner

Hi everyone. I just purchased a 2012 4 door Rubicon in November and I'm loving it. Just starting to do some mods, nothing crazy. I did the front bumper and skid plate, tail light guards (yes, I know some people's opinion on them but they do look cool), and I'm thinking about a Terraflex 2.5" BB lift.

I'm just not sure of the advantage of the coil lift over the BB lift, both 2.5". I'm also not sure I can handle the lift myself. I do my own brakes, but have never done suspension work. How hard is it to do?

Welcome to the Forum

Take a peek at the" lift sticky" in the JK forum for advice. You will find tons of great info on the forum so get comfortable and start reading.

Just had a Teraflex 2.5" coil lift installed last night. I don't have a lift to do the install but found a local guy who does a ton of lifts. He picked it up, installed lift and spacers. Front end alignment and had it back to me in three hours. Looks awesome. No regrets. Spend a little extra money and get a quality coil lift. Stay away from the cheap lifts.
