10th anniversary lift.

How much lift did you actually net on your 10th anniversary rubicon?

(x-.5) where X is the lift that you want to put on should be the theoretical number.
some people got smaller springs, in which case X would be net.
but there are various factors mainly rims and tire sizes that so play a part in this question

If found a good way to compare lifts is to measure from the center of the hub to the bottom of the fender front and rear.

For example, my lift, branded as 2", leaves me with 25" from center of the hub to the bottom of the fender both front and back (although not exact, I hate fractions)

You would do that measurement before and after. Or look at other's 10A before and after and what lift they use.

Good for a ball-park no?

My thing is lifts are advertised as for how much higher a sport will be. My 2.5 lift actually only netted .5 inch of lift. I was pretty disappointed to say the least. After some talking with teraflex about it I added 1 inch spacers to get a total of 1.5 out of 3.5 inches of advertised lift. According to teraflex that's basically as high as I'm able to go without worrying about driveline too much.

To clarify: you have a 10A JKU and put a 2.5" teraflex coil lift on and only gained 0.5" in height?

I'm also planning a 2.5" lift but if I'm only getting .5" I'm going to go 3.5"

Yes that's what my experience was. Teraflex told me that lifts are advertised as how much it'll lift a sport. A 10a sits about 2 inches higher than a stock sport so you only get .5". This is why I started the thread. I want to know what others got from there lifts.

The Teraflex 2.5" springs don't make sense to me. I installed them on my 2012 JK Sport. The 2.5" rear springs were almost the same size as the stock springs. I re-measured 2 weeks after installing my lift which showed 3.25" in the front, and 1" in the rear. But, to be fair, my measurements were taken on an asphalt driveway, not a flat concrete slab. I'm installing a 1" Teraflex rear spacer this week, which should give my JK the lift that I was expecting.

I had the same issue awhile back. TF sent me 1" spacers. Still don't know why it happens.

They did the same for me. Sent a set of spacers right away. They're good people to deal with and so far love there products. Just wish I'd known ahead of time that was gonna happen. In this instance the budget boost woulda gotten way more lift.

Neh... I don't know about you but like the other Poster. I was almost 4" front and after the 1" spacer averaged 3" overall.
Plus the coils will handle weight better then pucks/stock coils.
