It really depends on the suspensions you are comparing.

In a nutshell, teraflex is built for heavy wheeling, aev is built for overlanding.

I had a Teraflex long arm suspension on a 2010 JK, and a Teraflex short arm suspension on a 2011 JKU. I now have an AEV suspension on a 2013 JKU. To me the biggest difference is that the AEV suspension is quieter over small square edged bumps, and a little more supple. The AEV suspension uses a little more travel over medium sized bumps, but my AEV suspension is a 3 1/2" lift, and the Teraflex suspensions were 2 1/2" lifts, so I would expect a little more travel before hitting the bump stops.

The Teraflex suspensions are very good, but the AEV suspension is a little better, and quieter. This is for on road use, and mild to moderate off road use. I quit rock crawling a long time ago.

I have AEV 2.5 on my JKU I love it. Once the shocks get some time on them they ride better but still is a little stiff, but as far as off road and moderate rock crawling it has performed very well. Guess it comes down to user preference. Both are good companies, Both are good lifts from what I have read.

AEV is very well mannered on road and carries the weight of the Jeep very well. Regardless either will be an improvement over stock.

No complaints with AEV takes me where I wanna go.
