Teraflex leveling kit

I installed the Teraflex leveling kit on my 13 JKUR yesterday and figured I would post some pics. The install was pretty straight forward, took about five hours due to the lack of air tools and being solo on the install. One thing I would recommend is removing the lower front track bar bolt and loosing all brake line brackets including the rear cable mounted to the underside of the body.

After

Looks good. Paired with the Gecko = nice touch.

That is NICE!!! WHat did the kit cost you? I had a RC 2.5" Coil lift on my 08 Sahara Unlimited and now I am trying to decide what lift on my 13' Sahara Unlimited Crush. That color DEMANDS that it be beefed up!

It was around $130 shipped from Northridge 4x4. So far the ride is the same as factory.

I went with the Teraflex Leveling Kit and really like it too. Can't go wrong for about $130 and 3.5 hours of your time.

This is a spacer kit, yes? If so, how has the ride been afterwards? Is it a bit stiffer in cornering?

Yes it's a spacer kit. I don't feel any difference in the ride from stock so far.

Correct. Spacer kit. I did not notice any difference in the ride or handling. It's like factory.

I've been thinking about going this route, or a 2.5" lift. Have you noticed any drag and loss in mpg?

Tire Question?

Are you running stock wheel's? If so, Can you inform us of the size(tire) and if you think a spacer would kick them out some and still clear????

During the last week I've had it on, I have noticed no change in MPG following leveling kit.

I'm currently running stock '13 Sahara wheels, which I believe are 32s. My plan is to go to 33s once these wear out and I get my money's worth from them.


I found this post to have a lot of helpful info for the install.

Looks good. I love the gecko color, but it's not for me though.

I ran with the TF kit as well. I changed out my springs and shocks and added Rubi shocks and 18/59 springs. I think I gained near 2-2.5" overall up front.

Just did my 2013 Sahara last weekend with Teraflex leveling kit and smitty rock sliders. Wasn't a fan of the wheels, but they are growing on me. Easy to keep clean.

Greg, that looks just like mine. Now I know what to expect when I level it! Thanks to all for the pictures.
