Hey guys, I have been doing a ton of research since before I bought my '13 JKU in March. I have to have read most lift and/or build threads on this forum and done a lot of research outside that.
Here is the plan: 2-2.5" Budget Boost lift.
Reasoning: This is my DD and I would say 95% on road 5% off. Building my JK for sand and light trails on weekends then once it is retired as a DD in a few years build it up for more. So I do not need the extra flex gained from the coil lifts but I still want to do this as right as I can and give plenty of room for the 33s. This also allows me to buy some extra goodies to complete the lift and keep same or better than stock ride.
AEV Geo Brackets
Rancho 9000 shocks
Teraflex 2.5" BB or AEV 2" BB
From everything I have found these are the best and most comprehensive BB lifts, but I am very confused that they seem like they come with totally different parts and I do not understand why. Is one better than the other? Are some of these parts not actually needed? You guys are the experts.
TF 2.5 Parts Included:
Front and Rear Bump Stops
Rear Sway Bar Links
Rear Brake Line Brackets
Rear Track Bar Bracket
AEV 2 Parts Included:
Front and Rear Bump Stop Extensions
Front and Rear Shock Extension Brackets (I don't need them)
Front Stabilizer End Links Extension Brackets
Front Brake Line Drop Brackets
Zip Ties (???)
Both have bump stops and spacers. AEV skips the rear brake line brackets but adds fronts. AEV skips the rear sway bar links but adds front end link extension brackets. AEV also skips the rear track bar bracket. My thought is that the TF kit is more complete...
What gives? Any help would be appreciated.
