I honesty did not care for TF's shocks. Rancho until the end of June if offering a $100 rebate on their shocks.
Check out the adjustable 9000's or the new 7000 monotube shocks.

Hawaii 5-0 I went 33's with my OME 2" lift (more like 2.5 to 2.75")

I think it looks good, but 35's would look better IMO.

I didn't want to have to re-gear just yet. Going from the stock 32s to 33s was noticeable with my mighty 3.8L.

You can check out my lift in my avatar picture.

dawhitesJKU @ponce, if ur conscientious about your mpg, go 33. since you have a 2011, there will be a huge difference in power loss if you upgrade to 35's.

there are more factors than just the "looks"

redbilly I ran 33's with a 1.75" Daystar BB and had rub in very minimal off road situations. Now with a 3 inch lift, no rub under any circumstances. You'll have definite rub running 33's on the stock setup. The 2.5 TF lift should take that away.

Newbie help 2011 lift

I just got a new to me 2011 wrangler sport 2 door. (My mid life crisis). Mostly a daily driver with some weekend offroading. I need help deciding on a lift. I want to run 33s and am thinking of a Teraflex 2.5 spring lift. I see that most with this are running 35s will33s look too small? Also, would it benefit me to get the lift kit with shocks? By the way I love my new toy and the family does as well.

Thanks in advance for any help.
