Who has the 4" Teraflex system with 8 flexarms? 'cause..

I just ordered this for my '13 JKUR. Gets installed Monday/Tuesday. I can't wait.
If you have this, how do you like it?
I want it to drive normal in case the Girlfriend drives it. She does not know about the lift yet, she saw the 35" tires I have in garage.

Getting new front driveshaft, Rough Country dual steering stabilizer and the TF 9550 shocks. As well as the 35s on stock Rubi rims with spacers. I hope it still fits in garage with soft top up.

I will have the stock stuff up for sale if interested.
Also 5 BFG 255/75 R17 Mud Terrains with 422 miles on them will be up soon.

A 4 foot lift is a lot of lift

Awesome, can't wait to see this setup.
4" is a good amount of height. If ever you choose a highsteer setup, you will not be able to run the dual stabilizers.

- follow Synergy's control arms lengths to get a basis of where to set them.

Good luck !!

Any questions feel free to ask

I have a shop doing the install. They are Jeepers and wheel all the local trails. This is what sold me to have them do it. They said it will feel better than stock, on and off road.
I will put up some pics. I don't have many yet.

I have it and I love it. I feel like it rides better than stock, hard to describe but there is more control of the suspension over bumps on the highway. My wife drives the Jeep all the time and she has an MDX (comfy etc) for kid duty and when she drives the Jeep, it is fine for her even though she has commented that it is more trucky than the MDX (duh)

Not re-gearing at this point. I have the manual tranny and 3:73s, should be ok with 35s.

Just so you know there isn't really a need for a dual stabilizer setup unless you really want one. A properly set up rig can get away with none to one.

I like to have a stabilizer and the shop recommended this one. I like the way it looked and it's up and out of the way. Can't wait.

Where did you get the kit and do you mind me asking how much $$$??

Well, got it on and love it so far. A little more truck like on the road, but it will help when I get the spare mounted on back.

Correct the steering geomentry the right way. A dual stabalizer is merely for looks. A single does the same job.

I know guys who do 4" lifts and swear the dual SS fixed the bump steer...not so much - its just masking the real issue. Its like a band aid on a arterial bleed...you have just slowed the bleeding.

I have a 4.5" lift and your going to want to correct the drag link and track bar geomentry.

Strongly agree with this!!!!
I am running the exact same lift (Teraflex 4" with all 8 arms) Fix the steering geometry (track bar and drag link flip, I went with the kit from Synergy suspension for this. great kit!)
I also VERY STRONGLY suggest you also get the teraflex HD rear forged track bar to go with it. ESPICIALLY ON YOUR FOUR DOOR. I think teraflex should include this with the lift. The sock one is not strong enough!

You have already chosen the best lift on the market (Teraflex) with these addons you will have the perfect lift. IMHO anyhow.

Well, I didn't put the stabilizer on to hide any bad handling, it drives perfect.
I will talk to the shop, they were very thorough though.
They are all jeepers.

How do you like that tire setup with the 3.73? I'm about to go with 35" KM2s as well and just curious. Your setup looks great by the way.

No more starting off in 2nd gear. Not a problem at all yet. I have not yet had it in the dirt after the lift. I just hit 500 miles today on the Jeep, so I don't drive it every day (wish I did).

That's good to hear. And you know, your engine wakes up at 1000 miles, so if you feel comfortable now, just wait another 500 miles.
