Teraflex speed bumps

Wanted to get some current feed back on what everyone who owns Teraflex speed bumps thinks. Worth it? Would you buy them again? Or pass. Thinking about them but not sure.

They look nice but are pricey. I will be interested to see what people have to say.

Here in Nevada on the trails my Jeep sees, the Speed Bumps are the perfect solution to washed out back roads. They can't wear out, and cushion severe suspension comprehensions.

I like mine. I can run thru the same whoop de do sections faster with more control. I don't know how they compare to Air Bumps but they seem to make a difference in my jeep.

I only wish you didn't have to hack your Jeep to get them on. Otherwise I would have a set on right now.

Unless your hitting big bumps they are just along for the ride. I don't notice them. But if I hit a big dip in the road then they cushion the shock on up travel. Think of them as an extra heavy duty shock that only works at the last few inches of up travel. I can still stuff my tires when flexing.

They are worth it. I would buy them again. But like others have said, it depends on your terrain. A lot of my driving is in the desert with washed out roads, so they help with the dampening of the roads. I would say go for it, if you are driving on roads at higher speeds that are bumpy. Otherwise spend that money else where, but ensure that your current bumpstops are setup correctly to prevent bottoming out of your shocks.

X2 on all the above. No difference in a DD; not much good for rock crawling. Lots of fun on dirt.
Good video that shows them in action:

Well I did notice on the road that I did not have much body roll around corners. I think this is due to the rears as the bump stop on the top is resting on the speed bump ( normal per teraflex). The fronts won't come into play until I hit a big bump or rut.

I will see how it affects rock crawling this weekend.

Sub'd, Keep the reviews coming!

Ive been looking for something to help with the whoops at the dunes and the occasional air the front catches cresting the dunes. Stock bumpstops get a pretty good workout on a hard run. I just wish they werent so expensive for what they are. You can get King hydraulic bumps for the same price. Im also considering trying out the sumosprings Metalcloak is selling. They look to be a similar product at 1/4 the price.
