Teraflex leveling kit before and after

Got my kit put on finally. Figured I'd post a before and after for anyone looking to see the difference with 33 in wheels.

Before.

Not a huge difference but it looks great and kills the rake. Sadly, I live on a slope so it's hard to tell in these photos.

Not a chance, this is as far up as I go. Just have to add the 3d mesh billet, chop the bumper, slap on my bump stops, and get a new top. Then the rails. Then lights and my off camber loop. Then I might. Wait, what?

Yup. It's okay--I'm about to put on my second lift too.

Looks good! I have a TF 2.5 coil kit sitting im my basement for the last 3 months that I was going to put on before I changed my mind and went with 33's instead of 35's. I think the TF leveling kit goes great with 33's.

Install it! Plenty of folks run 33s with that kit. I'll be one of them shortly.

My wife is short and nixed a lift when she got in a rubicon on the lot. So I did a TON of research.

Here's what I landed on. 295/70r17 Nitto Terra Grapplers on 17x9 AEV wheels with 4.7" backspace, and Bushwacker flat fenders. No rubbing whatsoever. No lift.

In the next week or so I'm getting Hanson bumpers front and rear and a Warn winch. To off set the weight on the front, I'm adding a 1.5" leveling kit. Hope that work.

Nice job, looks good Don.

I'm thinking of doing the leveling myself when i get my winch. I wanna put it on the stock bumper, how much did u add with the leveling? And did u use new springs or pucks?

I just don't like the look of 33's with a 2.5" lift, too much gap IMO....

Really? It's common an popular. You almost need 2.5" to really clear 33s for wheeling purposes when you factor in flex--they'll rub on a 1" lift in the rear for example. But to each his own I suppose.

33s do fit on stock rubicon wheels. The problem is with width. 255/80r17 BFG MTs fit without any rub whatsoever. Anything wider you need a different wheel to not rub when flexed.

See my prev post for my set up with 33.4s. Not rub!

This kit is just pucks and arms, no shocks. Adds 2 inches to front, 1 inch in rear. Keeps the stock ride and kills the "stink bug" stance of stock JKU.

Not my line, but after reading it and catching them all over out house in the fall, it's spot on description.

I think the shocks stay unchanged.
Always a good idea to upgrade while your at it though.

Up to you

Looks good, got the TF leveling kit to, I put OME shocks on just in case I decide to go with new coils or a new 2.5 left any why. I did not have to chang shocks but it is a good upgrade.

I can tell it's lifted, but it still looks like it has some of the front rake. Maybe if you took the picture from a different angle, it would look different. Congrats on getting the kit installed. I've been considering this kit myself, so if you can upload a few pics from different angles, it would be much appreciated.

As best you can, level shot from each side, and an angle side shot looking from the front driver's side. Thanks!
