Rock Krawler 1.75" BB Pictures?

I have 33's on my '13 2 Door, and am looking for a small lift. I was going to get the teraflex leveling kit, but see that this kit from rock krawler comes with the quick disconnect links for only about $50 more than the teraflex kit. I know many spacer lifts are pretty much the same thing, but it is .25 inches smaller than the teraflex. I was just wondering if there would be that big of a difference between the two kits height wise. If anybody has used this kit or has something similar I would love to see it. I have done some searching but have not came up with much involving this lift kit.

I can't speak to the RK lift but I just installed the Teraflex Performance leveling kit w/ quick disconnects (after weeks of research and reading reviews). I wanted the smallest lift possible while still being able to fit the tires I wanted. The 1.5 inch increase, for me, was absolutely perfect.

Are you keeping the 33's or will you eventually increase? I have 295/70r18 Nitto's, which I believe come out at 34.5 inch. Had to do a little trimming, but now, even fully flexed, I have no rubbing. I also replaced all the shocks and the steering stabilizer (Bilstein) and IMO, this was the single best upgrade I've done thus far. I can't express how much of a difference the new shocks made, highly recommend this be done when lifting your jeep.

I don't think you'll ever need the .25 inches unless you're going to 35's but the quick disconnects for an extra $50 plus the added clearance could make it pretty enticing.

First pic is no lift with stock rubber. Second and third have the lift installed but still sitting on stock tires and the fourth is with lift plus the new tires. Not a huge difference but it accomplished what I was looking for, just enough clearance for the Trail Grapplers.

I just pulled the plug and ordered a bunch of stuff from 4wd hardware while it was on sale. I ordered the lift, rock rails, and some other small stuff. Can't wait to get it all put in and get some pictures up on here

That would be awesome! Now I just have to wait for everything to get here. It seems having a jk is all about waiting lol, I had to wait for it to be built, I have to wait a week everytime for all of the parts that I order, and now I have to wait until a backordered water pump come in because mine is already making noises at 1400 miles. But its alright, I still love the thing, as long and chrysler keeps up on their end and fixes the issues.

I don't know where in New York you are but I'm in the Albany'ish area and we're fortunate enough to have Rock Krawler here. I just spoke with them a few days ago and they couldn't be cooler. I'm setting up an appt next week with them.
