Good video, thanks for sharing! This should be a sticky with all the questions about lifts.

This was a great video. Really helped me understand lifts and there differences. Now if I can just decide on one.

I'm wondering to. We have the Teraflex 2.5 inch coil lift with 35's. We went this way because I asked Teraflex Tech Support what was the best lift to both minimize drive shaft long term issues but still fit 35s. We have really been happy with what we got, but the body lift may be a road to some extra height for a reasonable extra cost without having to invest in all the additional driveline modifications. Here's a pic with the 2.5 inch lift with 35s without a body lift. He's right, the front came up about 3 inch and the back 2 inch to compensate for the stock nose down attitude. Comments from Teraflex?

Great video!!!! Very informative.

Great video! I knew relatively nothing about Jeeps just 3 weeks ago. Countless hours of reading and videos like this are goldmines for knowledge. Looks like I might be buying the 2.5" coil lift to have put on my Jeep whenever I order it. Looks perfect for my needs. Now just got to find the best price for it!

awesome video x10!
definitely explained a lot of questions that have been bugging me!
too bad it's still a lot of thinking between the 2" spacers, springs or just going for the 3" haha
