Full level lift kit or just 2inch spacer for front of JKU??

Any input would be great....

I was wondering why get the Teraflex level kit ( 2 inch front and 1 inch lift rear)
spacers with 2 new longer end links

OR

Just 1 -2 inch spacers for the front only.

Want to run 285/75/16's ...this is a daily driver only...

thnx guys

I'd get the full leveling kit for $130.

Also, in case you don't already know, you'll need wheel spacers to run those tires on your stock wheels, unless you buy new wheels with appropriate backspacing...

Looks really nice jadmt. Thats exactly what ive been looking for, iam going to just level the front. Wear out my stock tires then go with a 2.5in lift and 33s. I found Rubicon Express 3/4s spacers for $35 on Quadratec. Cheap and a simple way to get rid of the front rake.

You should just lift it, don't level it. The factory rake looks nice and aggressive and will get better mileage on freeways.

I know it is personal preference, but I did not like how the rake on the 4dr looked and my mpg has not changed on the freeway one iota. With the factory rake I thought of the munster mobil every time I looked at it.

I've never heard of the munster mobile so I googled it. Yeah, you're right. Haha.

I recommend the Teraflex performance leveling kit. Its a bit more money, but it's the right way to do things IMHO.

You can shop around and see if other vendors can give you a better price.

I will post before and after pics...I think I'm leaning towards the Teraflex kit. I just bought some TKO wheels...just trying to decide on tires now.

Toyo AT II, Discoverer ST maxx, or Duratracs....we will see

tight! Im about to buy the teraflex kit as well, although i think im gonna save up a few extra bucks and go for the performance kit. in terms of tires, i think im gonna end up with goodyear mt/r's. they seem to perform well both on and off road.
