Jacin369 That's what I have on mine with stock shocks rides nice!!!
05-21-2013 09:01 PM
Alan R. That looks good I am considering same set up between this and 2.5 lift

Big Fran I had the TF 1.5" Leveling Kit put on my 2013 JKU and just used my stock sport shocks and springs. Looks and rides great.

Andrew_Evs @Binx - I swapped my stock springs and shocks with Rubi Shocks and Springs and installed the TF 1.5" Leveling Kit. No extensions.
05-14-2013 04:38 PM
Binx Hey Andrew_eve did you use shock extensions with that? I have the same thing with the springs and Rubi shocks but want to add the tf kit and had both quadratec and teraflex say I needed them for basically what you did.
05-14-2013 04:01 PM
Andrew_Evs @Cride - I just installed the same set up today. 1.5" Teraflex Kit (Quadratec for $130 w/ free shipping) and swapped stock springs for the Rubi Springs and Shocks (CL for $150)... I'd say I got about 2.5" - 3" lift. Definitely a stiffer ride. Wish I had taken a before photo, but here at my afters.

Cride Keep in mind I also upgraded to stiffer rubi springs.
04-23-2013 02:57 PM
aypanthony I have the leveling kit. I wouldn't say it rides stiffer.

^No i wasn't but thanks.

That's good to hear! I currently get just over 19 mpg (90% highway driving) and have plans to install the TF leveling kit.

If you are doing the spaced lift, you shouldn't need wheel spaces. I am running stock wheels with zero issues.

Here is the one I used, but I picked it up on here in the classified section pretty cheap. You can also get the kit through other vendors.

JKatfish I've been bouncing back and forth between the TF leveling (spacers) and the TF performance (coils) myself. Would using Rubi springs and spacers as the OP did acheive the same thing since take offs are about $100 or less. Can the stock Sport shocks be used as well and other parts needed to just go with spacers and Rubi springs?

I agree.

I don't usually recommend the performance kit, since you can get a full-blown 2.5" spring lift for a few hundred $'s more, but in your case it I think you'd benefit from it.

I'd be interested to know if anyone has used the Teraflex setup with this much weight up front. I'm guessing I'd have to forgo the rear springs to get a level Jeep.

Ali032373 Looks very nice. I swore I wasn't getting into lifts but after research I decided on the TF leveling kit. It'll be on soon. Glad to see the results are very positive.

I'm running a stock '08 with 33x11.50's and I'm lucky to get 15.5hwy. It normally sits around 13.7.

Here are a couple more pics.

Have smoked LED signals & markers on the way as well.

Chris M Looks good!!

I went the same route with spacers as well as changing out the 15/59 springs to run 18/59 and rubi shocks. I like the look a lot.
