2.5 teraflex lift sag?

I have a the 2.5 tf coil lift w/shocks on order with 1" spacer for front. I been searching and have noticed some people have problems with "sag", I currently have a front bumper and winch and weighs 150 lbs so i got the 1" spacer just incase. At the end of the day will the 2.5 lift still be there with the bumper/winch? FYI i have a 2011 JKUR also will install 35 inch nittos at the same time. Appreciate it

I have had my lift on for only 600 miles with a 150# bumper and winch. I know it isn't a lot of time but I have no sag yet and not hoping for any. I will tell you that I love the lift and my new duratracs. Mine is a 2 door.

I have the same lift and after putting my bumpers, spare carrier, rack and winch on, I lost about an inch.

Thanks. With that being said, would you suggest i put the 1" spacer up front and order 1/2" for the rear to compensate? I will be putting a rear bumper w/ tire carrier in future. Or just cancel order and go for 3" lift? Or another brand?

Depends if you're going for the best way to do it economically or not. Figuring you could easily sell the 2.5" setup, it may be a better idea to go with the 3" lift.

That's a lot of weight but most aftermarket coils are made for it. Adding 1/2or1" spacers is a good idea IMO.

Make sure you get the correct coils. I've seen this happen. TF offers both 2 door and 4 doors.

If you don't like rake (front lower than rear) you will require spacers to level the jeep. Level will change dependent on cargo and accessories. I have the 3 inch lift from teraflex for my unlimited ( which is a 4 inch lift for the two door). I have the AEV bumpers and a zeon warn wench, I lost about 3/4 of an inch, with that being said, teraflex is very generous so you should net the originally sought height.

For me I am also getting the wedges for the rear to straighten my rear springs out and that will require a hockey puck (spacer) to level the jeep again.

I would highly recommend the 3 inch lift. Not just because I have it, but a lot of the trails that I go on with clubs, I find that if I were a hair lower I would be dragging.


Just a FYI. Oh and if you go with a 3 inch lift you will need exhaust spacers or a new front drive shaft. I recommend a new drive shaft.

Hi, i have 2.5" coil spring lift with bilstein shocks on 2013 4 door. With this set up you should get 3" in front and 2.5" in the rear. Teraflex does this to allow you to add a winch and heavier bumper, my front was higher than my cousins 2.5" coil spring by Rubicon Express. Recently i added poison spyder bumper(no winch yet) which weighs 77 pounds and i lost may be half inch or less. So now its even- the rear and front. That said, im going to add a winch and rear bumper with tire carrier. I think it wont be bad, but extra clearance could defanately help especially when offroading. Now i need to do research if spacers will be adequate to use in case ill need some extra clearance. By the way, if i go with flat fender flares, i should be good to go

looks good. yeah i went with the 2.5 lift kit and added 1" spacer in front and 1/2" in rear so ill see how it goes when they arrive next wext with the 35's. btw are you using your stock tire carrier with a 35? how is it holding? had to remove your rear bumper also? im going to have to do that for a few months?

No, you don't need to remove your rear bumper . I just happen to remove it for fun. Its back on now.

I used the stock tire mount for 35" tire, only added a metal extension(spacer) by smittybilt ($45). Its been 8 month like that no issues what so ever also take in an account that i did few rock crawl trips as well. However, i plan on getting teraflex tire carrier or bumper/tire carrier combo later on. I know that the tire could break the gate welds anytime. Some people have it soon, some later, some none. You never know.

I have the TF 2.5 coil lift with a 1in puck in the front and I still have rake. TF even sent me new front springs as they thought mine may have been bad but I still have the problem and it bothers me everyday! I will be upgrading my front suspension this summer hopefully to be able to handle a higher lift. I will say that TF's customer service is awesome!!!
