Shock Recomendations with TeraFlex BB

2012 Rubicon, 2-door with 6-speed manual, 4.10 gears, and stock tires and wheels (for now, likely upsize to 33's or possibly 35's in future).

I'm leaning towards a TF 2.5" BB to raise her up a bit and level out.

Any experience and pics with this setup and shock combinations is helpful. Options are to keep factory shocks and add the adapters, or use the TF shocks or a third party brand of shocks.

This is a D/D vehicle , but I will take her off road occasionally, mainly on USFS roads here in NC.

Thanks again!

You look at the lift sticky?

TF and AEV are really popular. I am sure you will see what your looking for

From a financial standpoint, you might want to hold off on the shocks until you've decided what tire size you want to go with in the future. If you decide to go with 35's, you're gonna want more than a BB, most likely, and will need to address the exhaust crossover issue on the 2012's.

Might as well get it all in one kit.

Teraflex shocks are rough to my liking...at least the ones that came with the lift on my TJ.I ended up selling it and replaced with Rancho 9000 and man what a difference.

I will in all likelyhood go with 33's to minimize mpg loss; I'm hoping to possibly sell my stock Rubicon wheels/tires since they are new
