I have the RC 2.5 coil lift and LOVE it! It's my DD & off road vehicle and I wheel her pretty much every weekend in mud, trails & rocks and do just fine with the lift I have. I've let others who were thinking about getting the lift drive it they have a JKU and LOVE the way mine drives so they are getting the RC also. For the $ it's a fantastic lift and my girl still drives great. Hope that helps ya

Do you have the spacers or new coils?

Looks like it leveled the jeep nicely am I correct? And where did you get it for that price? Also did you have to do the exhaust extension?

Some spacers lifts level, some don't.
There is also leveling kits that put 2" front and 1" back.

So what's the consensus? The best BB that will level my jku is teraflex leveling kit?

Depends if you want to spend the extra money on the name. It's pretty hard to mess up spacers. I like my Rough Country spacers because they're metal. My rear track bar relocation bracket also attaches on the frame side instead of the axle like many others.

go rancho. they paint their shit red. and to be honest, ranchos nicer shocks seem to get alot of good mention. as with any kits, look at what you get, look at the price. if one kit sells a set of spacers and sway links, and the other sells shocks and springs for the same price, I can only imagine how terrible those shocks and springs will be.

personally? I would buy this RANCHO 4" Long Arm Suspension in Red with RS5000 Shocks for 07-11 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec

looks pretty awesome

in terms of a leveling kit or budget boost. who cares. you cant screw it up. if you want to drop serious coin on some hockey pucks, go crazy. if you want to buy a leving kit that comes with spacers, sway bar links, brake lines and waste your money on all those extra parts, go crazy (tip, if your shocks cant drop any lower, theres no need to adjust all those things). spacers are spacers. doesnt matter

I've got a RC lift. It was on the jeep when I purchased it and it would not be my choice if I were to buy one (I'd want a more complete lift) but.... it has done everything I've asked it to. I don't do anything extreme but its held up carried on just fine on some pretty good trails. I really wonder if half the people commenting about the ride have taken a ride in them. I doesn't ride like a lexus but it not as rough as some people make it out to be. Again I know there are better lifts but from some of the comments I see its as if people think the jeep will just pull onto a trail and break.

As I clearly stated, I've ridden in Jeeps with Rough Country lifts and they were all pretty rough/jolting compared to the quality lifts I've seen. That said, one spacer lift to the next will essentially ride exactly the same as long as they're the same height.

With the Teraflex level lift you're getting clearance for 33s (35s if you run flat flares) without having to bother with all the brake line brackets and all the extra crap. It'll get you up and level for very little money, retain the factory ride quality, and allow you to take all the time you need in finding a more complete lift when the time comes. The 2" front and 1" rear won't have anything under any strain, combined with the front swaybar end links to get the swaybar right.

When you do go to a proper lift, think about how much money you paid for your Jeep, combined with the cost of all your upgrades… and ask yourself whether it's worth the $400-500 you're saving on a cheap lift over one that will actually ride well.
