Teraflex needs to have better directions with the disconnects, because you have to push out the sleeve which I didn't know you had to, just figured it out. Almost done just have to do the control arms, track bar, then tighten up everything once the weight is on the suspension. Its going to be around 78-81 inches tall from what I measured. I really need to get a rear bumper/tire carrier to bring the rear down a little plus to hold my 35. Tomorrow going to finish everything minus the lights/wiring.

I'm stoked to see the finished job. Everything sounds great. I wish I could have gotten out there to see it today but we spent the entire afternoon on the trails. Have I mentioned how much I want to re-lift my jeep lol.

Thanks, just finished..most of it. Got the bumper/winch and lift done. She is finally road worthy! I love having suspension programs, I dailed in the caster I wanted (as there is a give and take with caster/pinion angle on front solid axle truck) and she tracks perfectly!!

Thank looks amazing. I like the black grille if you do it. You turned the Duratracs letter's in on this set and the lift looks great. I'm going to order my TF coil kit this week. You guys sound like you have quite the shop out there!

I went with 3 inch teraflex (lifts it up a little more than 3 inches because they in account the weight bumper/winch), Currie lower front controllers, JKS front rack bar, bilstein 5100 shocks.

Nice. I've been watching the Teraflex 2.5 coil spring lift install video on youtube. Pretty nice that they put that together. I'm sure it's better than the directions that come with the kit on paper. Those are not usually that good. I'm going to print out the torque values for everything of the Jkforum to bring with me Saturday. Is there anything I should bring?

Does the rugged ridge light bar have to be mounted to one of their bumpers or can it be mounted to a stocker?

Gotcha that's the same one MTH has. I was thinking it was different. On another note, TF just posted up a video on here about the exhaust routing on 2012 models. They've got two spacers now (driver and passenger sides) to expand and push back the exhaust when lifting. This prevents the piping to come into contact with other parts. Did you have to make any mods to yours when you lifted it? Have you checked it?

Asking 60obo for a pair three are new and the other three have very low miles / have less than a hour being on. Its just the lights, bracket, stone/rock covers. I can make you a wiring harness or you can make you're own.

Hey Jude, Yea I saw it as I was putting on the lift. The fix is easy really, theres the spacers or get a new y-pipe that moves the cross over between the transfer case and transmission. Really I could just get some 2 inch pipe and cut and weld really. If you watch the video he doesnt measure the center to center on the axle to shock but after he installs the spacers he does!

Is that a bad thing? My knowledge about the newer undercarriages is pretty limited, still learning
