CUL8R,
Thanks for your post on this MOPAR/Teraflex Kit. I just talked with the dealership today about it ... so far I'm interested, but how does it compare to a standard Teraflex setup? I know you don't know everything about yours yet (it's just a question). If anyone else should know (maybe Teraflex), is it designed for running fast or climbing rock and trails?

I dropped off my rig yesterday to have this lift installed. I went to the shop this morning and it was done. A few other items to do so will pick up Monday. I am looking forward to getting some time out on the trails.

Hallogram,

Get your vehicle back? How's it ride?

I never did post any pictures from our April trip to Moab. Here are a few from Poison Spider Mesa:

Looks great! But I might be biased.
I notice your front res. bracket is different than mine- mine is shorter on the bolt side and the metal scoops around the back of the shock. I'd rather have more metal on the bolted section than the shock.
I only just got mine completed- in the photos we're connected so you can't see much articulation. Just poser trail shots for the moment.

CUL8R - I did get her back Monday afternoon. Haven't had a chance to wheel but driving to/from work it feels great. Waiting on my ProCal to make adjustment on speedo and shift points. I also went over to a school nearby so I could adjust the headlights. Took to opportunity to disconnect the sway-bar and get some flex at an open area nearby.

I tell ya, for me this kit was a reasonable price given all the components, my dealer offered aggressive labor rate ( in the sense no more than any offroad shop I called). I'm very pleased. The ride is stiffer yet not extreme. The ride height with 315/70/17 tires is a good match as well.

Let me try to post some pics.

A few snapshots. I'll get out soon to get some shots of the suspension in action.

Yep- Exhaust spacer. Needed on the 2012.
Just plugged in my Procal and adjusted for new shoes and tire PSI change.
Pretty sure I avoided a re-gear with the 34s but please don't post anymore pics of 35" tires. Makes me sad. LOL.

I went the Stage 3 route as well because of the fixed length control arms. After going though everybody else's CAs on my TJ over 16 years, I decided to try something completely different. So far, I'm pleased, but I've only got 13k on 'em so far. Flexes so well it requires limiting straps.

^ those are BFG KM2 35x12.50 17. Currently running 4.10 gears so I'll be going to 4.88 if I feel the need, which I likely will.

Looks great. I have heard rumblings about this spacer getting loose, etc. Still scratching my head as to why anybody would design a Wrangler that couldn't be lifted more than a couple of inches without needing exhaust work or these spacers.
