TF BB and aftermarket shock question.

Thinking of adding the teraflex budget boost kit with the 2.5" spacers and have the option of either using my stock shocks with the supplied extensions OR getting the kit without shock extensions and adding aftermarket shocks like OME's. I wont be doing serious off roading, just trail riding and want a civil riding DD with bigger tires, thinking of 315-70-17's on stock alloys with spacers.
Will aftermarket shocks improve the ride over the stock stuff much?

Yes, especially the Sport shocks. If you had the factory Sahara or Rubicon shocks I would say go with the extensions but not the Sport shocks. You will see a huge difference in ride quality with a good after market shock, billistein, Fox, OME, Rancho etc……. Or you could get a used set of Sahara or Rubicon shocks and add the extensions. I am running the Rubicon shocks with extensions and beat my rig pretty hard off road and they perform fine. The on road manners are awesome with my shocks as well.

I have the 2.5" teraflex spring lift with the shock extensions. The lift is great and will perform flawless right out of the box…….. but I just got the Teraflex front Monster adjustable trac bar and it is like night and day on the road. It fixed any wandering, bumpstear etc. I highly recommend that over all others.

Also get these,,, JKS Manufacturing 2030 - JKS Manufacturing Quicker Disconnects™ for 07-13 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec

Thats it,, you should be very squared away

Oh and the Trac Bar is a super easy install. http://www.teraflex.biz/monster-forged-trackbar-jk.html

Ya Im lookin at the lift w/ shocks, the jks quick disconnects, and I was lookin at the jks adjustable trac bar. Wasn't sure if the teraflex monster bar was worth the extra money. Any idea what makes em different?

I dont know much about the JKS trac bar so I wont give you any false info about it. I liked the thickness of the Teraflex one and that it had the necessary bend in it to clear the differential unlike the JKS one. The main problem is the thinness of the stock trac bar, everytime you hit a bump it flexs which makes for sloppy mush steering and your tires kinda go where they want. The teraflex one is thick as hell and will not bend. It makes for drastic improvements.
