Teraflex advice 2.5 kit vs leveling

Hi. I have a 14 JKU with 33 duratracs on 15" wheels. I want to do a Teraflex 2.5 kits with shocks or maybe just the performance leveling kit. I go offroad pretty much everyday (live on a ranch) but do t do anything "flexy" at all. Would I be happy with just the level kit. How much difference in height? Ride quality? This is all new to me. Thanks!

I just put on the TF coil leveling kit and really enjoy it. The big difference is around turns, where the coils really keep the jeep tight, while the pucks that I had before from TF would not be as tight around corners.

If you are just going on dirt roads, a leveling kit maybe better for you. You get a great look, and do not have to worry about replacing control arms or anything. You could put on an adjustable trackbar, but I have found it is not essential.

I'd say the leveling kit. I personally think the 4 doors look a little off with a 2.5" lift and 33s. The leveling kit and your tires will look great.

I too would recommend the performance leveling, it keeps the center of gravity lower while still giving you the clearance you need... I got 2" front and just under 1.5" in the rear (2dr) and have no rub with 33's except under extreme flex, tires never actually rubbed unless i purposely tried to

Great info. Leaning towards leveling kit. Any benefits if TF over other brands?

I couldn't speak for other brands but I know that teraflex has a good reputation and from my experience rides a tad stiffer (which I prefer) and actually improves handling. I have no complaints with my kit

I am a little disappointed as I have only had the TF kit on a couple of weeks and my rear has already sagged 1/2" from when I put it on and the front 1/4". "Seems pretty early for them to start sagging. Hopefully it is done sagging. other wise the ass end is going to be squatting. I have found TeraFlex is great getting back to you before you order but not so good after you have ordered and make a complaint.

Here's a shot, right after I installed my Teraflex 2.5" w/shocks.

Looks great. I have the same color combo and want a similar stance. Is that their 1.5" kit?

Also, what level tint did you go with on the fronts and did you do anything to the rears?
