TeraFlex 1.5" leveling coils.

I am looking for a slight lift, but would rather stay away from the Budget boost. I have a 7 month old child in a car seat and this is a Daily Driver that I haven't had time to take off road yet but plan on it in the near future. I have 33"s on it with a winch and JK Stubby Hybrid on the front and I am waiting on delivery of the ACE rear w carrier. Any advice is welcome. Thanks.

Rancho 2" sport lift w 9000xl shocks for less than $400 from Amazon shipped to your door. It took me 4.5 hours to install mine. It rides better than stock with the front shocks set at 2 and the rears at 3. I picked up 2.25 inches in front and .75 inches in the back.

Uses new front coils and a rear spacer.

I always recommend coils if the person has heavy accessories.
Contact one of our venders to help with the purchase.

Honestly, I like what Rancho did here. Front springs are replaced but the rear uses a spacer to keep cost down. 2" is safe as far as Dl and steering angles.
Of coarse the shocks are great too

I wanted to lift my JKU, but not sacrifice my ride quality. My setup is for a DD and to allow my short wife to load my son in his car seat (she still has issues thought). So I went with the 1.5 TF Performance kit with OME standard shocks.

33" duratracs.

I have the duratracs and that TF performance kit is what I was looking at and maybe upgrade shocks at a later date. Thanks. BTW I have a 11 JKI

x2. I run 33" DuraTracs as well and just had the TF perf leveling kit installed with some Rubi takeoff shocks. Love the ride and zero rake.
