3" Teraflex w/ flex arms vs. 3.5" Rock Krawler Max Travel

What are the pros/cons to these two kits? I think i've mostly decided i'm going to go Rock Krawler but I could easily be persuaded with whatever would be cheaper.

Is there a difference in maintenance between the two? I've read in other threads people having to spray wd40 on joints or something for the RK? Would you have to do that with the Teraflex? I'd like whatever is the most maintenance free. Oh, I also plan on going with the Bilstein 5100 shocks for now.

theres no cons with either kit.

perhaps just the price is a con.

you shouldnt be spraying wd-40 on either of the brand's joints.

go with bilsteins shocks on both kits either way. teraflex shocks are a hit n miss.

there isn't a kit out there that is maintenance free, i think full traction claims theirs are/is.

Both kits do 8 arms?

Doesn't one of the RK kits only do lowers?

Think it'd come down to personal choice. Both are great, reputable manufacturers. Personally I'd go RK but that's me. You won't lose with either.

Is the only maintenance with either kit really just lubing up the control arms?
