Yet, another lift question...

I have 2012 COD MW3 that I want to lift...But, I am not buying new tires until the stock Rubi's wear out...If I go with the Teraflex 2.5" coil lift should I purchase the shocks as well or use the shock adapters? Also, will I need to purchase wheel spacers? Is there anything else I will need if I go with this lift? Thanks for your feedback in advance...

On my 08, I ran the same kit with my stock tires for a bit. I used the shock adapters because the Rubi shocks are good shocks. I also got wheel spacers because of the clearance on the rear sway bar links plus the wider stance looked better as well.

You need to get wheel spacers and they recommend exhaust spacers as well if you have a 12+. And for you I'd say shock adaptors since you have rubi shocks

I bought one for my Jeep. Havent put it on yet since I'm still deployed though.

I'm a DD, camping, fire road guy. Will never purposely go over a crazy rock ledge if there's a bypass. I just go exploring with the family, so I thought the AEV would be the best choice for me.

Definetly not a bad chioce either way, my top 4, in no order, are AEV,Teraflex, Rock Crawler, Metalcloak. YMMV!
