PhotoWrangler Bumping this one again, cause I'm now looking to do something with the new '14 JKU.

GPLeigh TeraFlex - no mention of the (new?) 1.5" Perf Leveling Kit - how does this compare to say the BB? I'm thinking that because this kit includes new springs that it's 'better'?

Not looking for a lot of lift, just an inch or two, I want to be running 33s and will be adding some aftermarket weight (bumpers, side rails and roof rack).

it's for a 2013 JKU. Thanks for all the posts and the vid, really useful.

Not much crawling around my area, but there's alot of mud, rocky trails, and some steep approaches. I drive the jeep everyday to work, so I didnt want to go crazy.

I've decided I'm going to get a 2.5" and run 33's. I think I might get the tires first (completely stock suspension, ARB stubby bumper is the only major mod).

My question,
| TeraFlex Suspensions

Does this come with tho control arms/do I need the control arms?

Bluect I don't think making your wife watch a video is really going to get her to ok the lift but good luck. Great video though. Too bad I already bought my lift. I will make sure I watch this before I buy the next one for my 2014.

rum4 This helps alot with my decision to lift. Thanks

Metalcloak 3.5" lift???

Does anyone know anything about the Metalcloak JK Wrangler Game-Changing Mid Arm 3.5" Suspension System? I use my Jeep every day for work so I cant get crazy. This kit looks impressive. It uses the 6PakTM Long Travel Shocks, Metalcloak Dual Rate Coils, Duroflex Control Arms with Roto-Bearing, Duroflex Joint, and front & rear Solid Chromoly Track Bars. Anyone using this kit?

Bob you and I are in the same boat. I'm getting my '14 JKUR Wednesday and have already started ordering things for it, including a q-tec hitch and I just received my Rancho geometry correction brackets. I'm ordering a TF 2.5" spring lift with shock adapters next week.

Question for Teraflex.. You mentioned the kit with adapters has a different track bar? If I wanted to swap to longer shocks later on, what will I need? Are the spring identical between kits?

Freedom fighter, if you want to run 35's, you will need to go up to a 3.73 gearing at a minimum but you won't need a lift since you said you just drive streets and beach. However, a Teraflex budget lift would make it look better and level it out. Those 35's will wear down the 3.21 gears fast so think about that before you run 35's. Most people would probably agree you should go to a 4.10 gearing with 35's but you would be ok with 3.73 as a daily driver.

Great video!

Great information!

Definitely, the 2.5" kit with shocks and 35s is the best choice for my needs...

TeraFlex 2.5" kit will be perfect for you. I do highly recommend the shocks.

If you like to carry lots of gear or are planning on adding bumpers I'd point to more to the spring version.
Not a problem. Have been thinking alot about this, and may go with 315's instead ( a friend has them on his truck, and I like the look). In that case, would I need to go with a 2.5" lift to insure no rubbing off-road? Also, do I need to change shocks, or are the stock ones sufficient?
