Which leveling kit for my 2013 Unlimited?

I have seen kits from 1/2" up to 1" . Which do I need? Not going with bigger tires...yet. Just want to get a level look.

Get the TeraFlex Leveling kit. 2" for the front and 1" for the rear.

Teraflex 1155200 - Teraflex Leveling Kit for 07-14 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec

Easy to install and look great.

I went with the AEV it's 2 in the front 1 in the back and it's a fairly easy install comes with front and rear bump stops , shock exstension brackets so you can keep your shocks and front sway bar brackets . I got mine from north ridge for 260

I've been going back and forth with this for the last few days. I emailed Rock Krawler about their Budget Based LT System, and with it you don't need to replace your shocks or add adapters. It's 1.75", and you would be able to run 33's if you wanted. I was checking out TeraFlex for a while but I'm not wanting to change shocks or add adapters with the upcoming plans I have for my rig.

I'll be going with the Rock Krawler BB.

I'm having the same debate on which one to go with, I don't want to change out the stock tires just yet. How do they look installed while still having the stock tires installed?

Has anyone used the 3/4" poly spring spacer? I do not want to mess up the track bar & sway bar and shocks by going more than 1". Do I need an alignment after with the 3/4" front spacer?

Thanks 4Fit, it doesn't look out of place. I assume you agree? I just don't want to replace the tires and rims just yet. I'm going to try and upgrade them in the spring, I just don't like the front rake at this point though.

I think it looks just fine. In fact, I ran it like that for several months. Then sold the stockers to help fund the new ones.

I installed the Teraflex on mine and the AEV on my daughters.

Having done both, I preferred the Teraflex.

I'm about to install the cheapo Eibach springs from Qtec which are supposedly 2" in the front and 1" in the back. This is mainly to compensate for mildly heavy bumpers (58lbs rear, 56lbs front) I hope I have good things to say this weekend.

Edit: I should point out I already have adjustable track bars and adjustable quick disconnects so a small spring-only kit is fine for me. I don't know if its right for all people.

OK, I'm confused??? Is this leveling kit the same as a lift kit? If so, we should get the lift kit first right?

I did the 3/4" spacer front and back. No alignment necessary. I thought I would have to re center the steering wheel, but I didn't notice a change. Took about two hours or so.
