Just installed lift

2.5 Teraflex coil w/ shocks kit and spacers to level out. So far the ride is more smooth than stock and no wobbles. Testing them out this weekend in Azusal canyons.

Looks great liking the flat flares with that combo.

That 2.5 looks taller than my AEV 2.5 lift but it could also be the new flares. Looks good!

Thanks. I put a 1 inch spacer in front and 1/2 inch in rear to get ready for bumper/tire carrier.

I put the same lift on mine. I also have a Bestop HighRock 4x4 High Access Front Bumper w/Smittybilt X2O-8 Comp Series Winch and a Bestop HighRock 4x4 Rear Bumper w/Tire Carrier supporting my spare 35" GY MTRK. With all that, after I installed the 2.5" coil lift (w/shocks), the tail end of my JK was actually sitting about 1.25" lower than was the front. I contacted the folks at TF and they graciously sent me a set of 1" Rear Spacers. They just arrived this afternoon so I haven't installed them yet but I'm hoping they put my rig close enough to level that its slight reverse rake is unnoticeable.

Looks great man!

Not to hijack the thread, but with most coil lift kits will there still be a rake? Is that why you installed spacers?

Did you use CA correction brackets? Also, I thought coil lifts were supposed to eliminate the rake. That is the reason you do coils if adding bumpers, skids, winch ect.

Need your jeep expertise

How would flat flares look with aev front bumper. I'm sick of the cheap plastic stock fenders. Any opinions?

When you talk about spacers, are you talking about pucks that go between on top of the coils, like a budget lift?

Most coil lifts compensate for the rake. I believe he added spacers for the weight of bumpers/winch/spare tire...

Man didnt realize this thread had more views. Thanks guys and Yes same kit and for the other questions ^^^ also im running 35 nitto trail grapplers. The spacers are added pucks to level out the "rake" i had with the bumper/winch infront. I didnt put CA's brackets yet, rides great while wheeling and street so far. Im on the "upgrade it when it breaks plan" for now after blowing so much so fast on the rig. The bumper is extreme terrains barracade bumper. After a few months i like how it sits for now. Getting the itch to go bigger....
