Mike said when they installed it on my jeep, it may not have been necessary, but he'd rather be safe than sorry. I think the spacer kit was like $25. Definitely rather not take a chance with my jeep...

Sorry I can't be more definitive! Let me see if I can get one of the more experienced lift guys to drop in and give you their input...

That would be awesome! I read on here they were needed with 2.5 lifts and up so I ordered the $50 Teraflex spacer kit, but then they told me it wasn't needed with any of their 2.5 kits. I ordered a 2.5 BB and won't be doing any extreme offroading in the land of corn up here so hopefully I'll be ok without them. I was hoping to install the lift this weekend but it's getting delayed by weather with UPS and the more I read and research the more confused I get.

It is confusing..there is a teraflex YouTube video on installing this spacer..I think they said for 3" and up..I bought a 2.5" but it will actually give me 3.5" until I put aftermarket bumpers winch etc..if you want to wait until after you get your lift on and make sure you don't need them I can wait...that way you will know for sure..I don't expect my lift to be here until march 10.

you're spot on Star. it "might not be needed" but without it, when disconnected, the driveshaft "might" rub a hole through, or crack, or damage the exhaust not something you really want to have to deal with. not to mention the stress it could potentially place on the exhaust manifold at the head.

there's a right way to do things, and a well - let's see if this works and we'll chase problems way... glad you installed the spacer. what's piece of mind worth to you?

Thanks, Bob!

I appreciate your input! Hopefully it will help my new hydro friend ccarrico29!

ccarrico29, tabber (Bob) is one of the lift geniuses here on the forum. He's one of my 'go to' friends when I have a question on all things jeep.

Just thought about one more thing, Bob. Does the spacer make a difference if it's a JK or JKU? Hmm. Doesn't sound like I'm asking it the right way...

Is the spacer more or less 'needed' if it's a JK or a JKU? I'm not sure what ccarrico29 has, so I figured I'd ask just in case. Fljeepleo, Mike and I all have JKUs, so I'm not sure if the answer would be different for a JK.

Thanks again, Bob!

no ma'am, no difference, need the spacer on both the JK and JKU. the first minute of TeraFlex's video - Dennis is pretty clear why

no need to apologize, that's a good question. so you know - JK and JKU are pretty much identical from the transfer case forward.

Grr. I wish Teraflex would make up their mind. I have a JKU Polar and only plan on putting the 2.5 BB in it since I won't be offroading much (if any ). I'll see if I can give them a call again and see if I get a different opinion with someone else. I've already bought them and I'll be down there anyways when I install the lift so if they're needed it's not going to hurt.

for as low as the cost is for the spacer, i would just do it and be done with it. get it done right... and if in the future you decide to get a coil lift, you're already set up.

Not all of us yet, Tex... jeepers29 still has to bite the bullet.

jeepers29 and I started talking when I first said we were moving to Austin. He recommended some restaurants and thoughts on areas to live. He was my first friend in Texas! And he wound up hanging in the waiting room.

I met 042 in the waiting room back in September, like you and I did. He mentioned driving through Bastrop one time and found out we lived kinda close.

The thanksgiving party we had here was the first time we met any of you all in person. I wish you lived closer so you could come to the wrenching parties! We will definitely be discussing a weekend at Barnwell this weekend!

I don't believe jeepers29 or 042 have build threads. I think they should fix that this weekend, don't you, Tex?

Weather here on Friday was AMAZING!!! Heard it got up into the eighties. Was able to open the windows and break out the shorts both days! Now I'm just hoping that it STAYS this way, so I can learn how to fold my soft top and start using it!

Have a great weekend! Hope it's beautiful weather there, too!

Oh, you wouldn't BELIEVE the day we had!

jeepers29 jinxed us earlier in the week by saying how fast everything was going to get done. We finally closed up the shop and came in around 11:00. It's a good thing that 042 brought his 'go' bag, because we still aren't done!

(Sorry, jeepers, couldn't resist. )

Boy, let me tell you that Rock Krawler 2.5 lift is a BEAST! Track bar, sway bars, stainless brake lines, not even sure that was all of it. Unfortunately the jam nuts require some special 'claw' tool: 042 bought the size that was listed in the instructions, but they were too small! So, first thing tomorrow morning it's off to the auto parts store we go!

It was a great day though. Wish you could have been here, Victor! Weather was great and we had a blast hanging out together. It's always a lot more fun modding with friends.

Hope the storm spotter class went well and you passed! Is it similar to the storm chaser type thing?

Star, are you trying to pressure me to get a lift? LOL Had a great time, thanks for having us. Looking forward to meeting Victor at the next party. Pam, I will be looking at weekends for Barnwell this week.

Storm chasing and storm spotting are really not the same even though much of the training is the same. The condensed version of this is that storm spotters will not get any closer than 2 - 3 miles of the storm. The purpose of spotting is to stay far enough away to see a much larger picture of what is happening with the storm and report these observations to emergency operations centers in the area. Storm chasers are more interested in getting in close to the action either for the rush or for taking video and pictures. While chasers can give valuable info at the core of the storm they can't really see what is happening with the storm structure itself. To be a certified storm chaser though you do have to complete the basic and advanced storm spotter classes and then take an additional storm chaser class. The storm chaser class is not a part of the National Weather Service and is administered by a 3rd party. Now if your wondering what being certified means, to a storm chaser not a darn thing. With storm spotters it gives your visual reports more credibility because the authorities know you have a basic understanding of a storms structure and know the appropriate lingo and reporting protocol. I do realize that I've got to get another HAM radio license though since that is still the most used form of communication. Just to be clear on this, I'm not a spotter or chaser, just a photographer who wants to be better informed and be able to monitor the radio reports given by the spotters and chasers. I do not want to get close enough to any storm to get my Jeep beat to shit by hail.

Thanks for the storm class info! Sounds cool, but not for me. I'm a chicken, so you'll just find me hiding in my bathtub.

Did you know they recently changed the HAM requirements? No more morse code?!? Now that I think about it, we may have discussed this before...

jeepers, you know we love you and wouldn't want you to do anything YOU don't want to do. We just happen to know you REALLY want to lift that baby!

Tex, we will try to get the Barnwell trip wrapped up as quick as possible and let you know when.

Did you know they recently changed the HAM requirements? No more morse code?!? Now that I think about it, we may have discussed this before...
Ha ha StarBrite........ Storms are just a part of life in Oklahoma and Texas. I've been exposed to them all of my life so I'm not afraid to get close to a storm. Yep, I knew that morse code had been done away with and I'm glad because I probably wouldn't get another license if I had to re-learn that damn code. I have spent most of tonight reviewing the technician class license study guide and will probably take the exam at the next testing date here in Arlington.

Can't wait to see some pics of your wrenching party.........

Did you know you can take the license test online? I am 99% sure my neighbor across the street did! and printed out a copy of his license the next day. All from the comfort of his own mancave. LOL

I will have to bug Mike this week to get all the pictures off his camera. I don't know Lightroom or how to convert pictures from RAW to jpg, but still have decent quality.

So, hopefully you won't get quite as much stretch on your driveshaft, compared to the triple rate coils... I could not BELIEVE that height!
