Looking at 3" lift by TeraFlex

Just wanted to get some feedback (likes/dislikes) on the 3" Suspension System from TeraFlex

3" Suspension System by TeraFlex and Other Jeep Parts and Jeep Accessories by 4 Wheel Drive Hardware-RH2

Also, has anyone seen the same kit for any cheaper on any other site or Off Road shop in Orange County, CA?

Thanks!!

Why would you spend that for a TeraFlex kit? You can get a Zone Offroad kit 3" coil kit with Nitro shocks, steering stabilizer, and quick disconnects for $674,42 shipped to your door including CA sales tax. Zone Offroad is a sister company of BDS Suspension. Good luck on your search.

If your dead set on that kit from TeraFlex, I can get it to you for less money than 4wd. But here are some others:

I have 3" TF lift and it is a great lift. I would ask what size tires are you planning to run - if you want 33s or 35s, than you could do with a 2.5" TF lift. TF lifts give you more lift than advertised.

I can think of many reasons to go TF - lifetime warranty, great service, good product. They also tend to be a more complete lift than a Zone lift.

Not that I am dissing zone, no experience with it, but TF does give good value for the money. Add in the gas shocks, brakelines, disconnects, and bumpstops and I don't think the zone price is as far off as you think.

I have read alot of good reviews about the TF Lifts as well. Looks like a great product with a good company backing...I am running 35s right now. I was looking at the 2.5" lift as well, but was leaning towards the 3". How much higher is the lift than what was advertised?

Joe from TF told me that the 3" lift will give 4.25" lift on the JKU, the 2.5" lift will giev an average of 3.1".

On my rig, went to 33s and the 3" lift and netted almost 6" total over stock. If all you want is to run 35s, the 2.5" lift should do. Here is my rig - you can see how much room there is with the 33s.

Is the 2.5 teraflex a good all around lift? Should I use their shocks or buy bilstiens? I'm about to purchase A lift myself

My understanding is the new front shocks with the TF 2.5" limit the travel a little and so there will be no driveline issues - that is what TF claims at least

I am happy with the TF gas shocks myself. I can't speak for Bilsteins. You don't see a lot of complaints about TF, Bilstein, or OME shocks, and there are a lot of them out there.

Grog, after a few months did the lift settle in to its normal height or was it still sitting above 3" ?

I haven't added the rear bumper/tire carrier yet, but still 4" for the lift. TF understates their lifts.
