3" or 4" teraflex LGC Enduro lift

I'm looking at getting either a 3" or 4" teraflex LGC Enduro lift to run 33's. Two questions:

1. Will the 3" lift sufficiently clear the 33's or should I go 4"?
2. If I go 3" is regearing a necessity? Not sure if I can spend all that cash in one drop (lift, tires/rims, and gears).

...also, anyone have any experience with this particular lift?

do the 3" lift and a 1" bodylift...that will fit the 33's without having to spend all the extra when goin 4"+ on the suspension.

Regearing isnt necessary with lifting...just depends on the tire size you're wanting to run. Your stock gears should be just fine with 33's

X2. Plus you'll end up with a slightly lower center of gravity with a 3" suspension lift with 1" body lift than you would with a 4" suspension lift.

Pricing is the same on both kits. You would be better served going to the 3" and the body lift as described. That is an expensive kit though. You could accomplish the same results with Rock Krawler 3.5" LA kits with a better warranty.

PM me if you would like more information on either kit.

I forgot to add that Tera and ProComp lift kits are the two brands of suspension lift brands that I would not buy. They are the last two, though there are a couple other brands I wouldn't have on my Jeep either. My first lift was a Tera and I used to work for ProComp's parent company so I know both brands very well.

What brands do I like? Currie, Rock Krawler, Clayton, and Rubicon Express.

1. avoid Terajunk like the plague. stick with Old Man Emu, BDS or RCD. RCD makes a very complete 3" lift.

2. lift height has nothing to do with gears. tire size governs what gears you want to run. gear ratio will depend on your engine, transmission & tire size choice.

That's funny that you would recommend RC over Tera flex. I have an older Tera lift on mine with RE shocks in the back and it drives great on the road and flexes enough to unseat the coil in front. I have never run a RC lift but have heard more than a few neg reviews about them. What do you run?

If you have Tera's basic control arms that have bushings on both ends, don't be surprised when one of your control arm brackets tears off from where it is welded to the axle or frame. That happened to me when I used to run Tera's arms and that's when I discovered their reputation for doing that. Tera's arms with bushings at both ends don't flex well enough to prevent overstressing the welds that hold the control arm brackets in place.

who recommended Rough Country over Teraflex?

I certainly didn't. RC is junk too.

I recommended RCD over Teraflex.

I run a hybrid lift...lots of OME, Rokmen, homemade bumpstops, some JKS.

Hasn't happened yet and the guy I got it from ran it for a few years without issue. That being said Currie arms will replace these when funds allow.
