Teraflex leveling kit

I'm looking to beef of the stance of my 10' JKU and am pretty set on the teraflex leveling kit and 285/75/17 for tires which come out to be 33.8x11.1 essentially. I've talked to guys at tire rack and quadra tech and they all say the set up would work. I was just wondering if anyone has this setup or just the teraflex leveling kit and how it rides compared to stock. Thanks! Pics would be awesome too if you got em 👍

Coils or spacers ? I know a lot of guys running the coil kit and 35's. Wheels need to have the right back spacing. Bumpstoped if running longer shocks. Considered trimming or running flat flares ?

It is the spacer kit. Haven't really considered flat flares yet but I do like them. For now I'll be running the stocks and springs so I'm hoping it doesn't make it ride like a lumber wagon. I talked to a guy at tire rack about the exact set up I'm wanting and he said the back spacing will be good.

teraflex performance leveling

I have the TF performance leveling kit (springs) with 285/70-17's. I found it handled much better with the new springs and seemed to have less play at high speeds on the highway - not sure how much is real and how much is the placebo effect, but it seemed much better with the aftermarket springs. Here's a pic:

Teraflex spacer kit. 285/70 17. Rides like stock. Love it. No regrets. U will need to loosen brake line brackets and rear sway bar links. Does not say to in instructions. Easy install. Took 5 hours by myself with hand tools.

Awesome thanks guys! Got everything ordered last night and feeling much better about it now. I'll put up a before and after pic Sunday after thanksgiving. One more question. How is the power loss with the 3.8L's? Is rear gearing really nessasary?

Agree, you will feel some loss. Some deal with it and some can't.
FYI both front and rears are gears have to be changed.

While I'm sure the 4.10 would be tolerable, the 3.8 is under geared (1 step) from the factory. We went from the 255/75/17 with 3.73 auto to 285/75/17 and 4.88s, which is wonderful.

I just put 1" teraflex spacers on (I also installed 10th anniversary springs)... Here are my results:



The 10a springs definetly made things more stiff, but with a heavy front bumper, I hear that problem goes away.

I would suggest for you to go on eBay and purchase a set of stock rubicon springs and shocks, (springs front 17 rear 58)... Very smooth ride, not stiff like the 10a... The rubicon shocks are gas filled and heavy duty. If your gonna take your springs off, might as well change them out. I've seen jku rubi spring and shocks go for 50$ on eBay with 25$ shipping... 10a rubicon springs are slightly stiffer, I paid 200$ for those springs. Here is one with stock rubicon wheels:

You have the rubicon shocks... The red ones. My springs are from a 10th anniversary rubicon which are the hardest stock springs they offer, 68 rear and 19 front (if you understand spring lingo)

Before and after! Teraflex leveling kit (spacers) with 17" xd misfits and 285/75/17 km2's. Love the look! Ride is a little rougher but that's expected. Overall, very happy!
