NoBoat0429 1.5" RC lift with shocks, worth every bit of the 25,000 pennies I paid for it. Actually will measure 1.75" of lift. A good jeep guy will charge 200-300 dollars to install. Makes ride 15-20% stiffer. No other mods required, just bigger tires

RC has a lot of products for different applications. For our jeeps, the sagging of springs, and rough ride is pretty common with the complaints. Yes it does have a lifetime warranty, but those parts are being replaced quite often. Some users have problems, some don't.

dawhitesJKU I did a 2.5 for less than 1k. that included all the necessities for offroad (jks disco's/and exhaust spacer for my 2012) along with great dd capabilities due to the AEV geometry brackets.

Theairhead Would you rather of done a coil lift instead? Or are you completely satisfied with how the teraflex lift was?
07-08-2013 09:08 PM
jgore2409 That's going to make for one bad ass ride, I've been leaning towards lifts with shocks included just cause it saves me some time and money.. But i could always upgrade them if I'm not happy with what i have..
07-08-2013 09:04 PM
Bjornvick I stayed stock for the time being but just ordered the bilsteins yesterday

Thanks! i seen that in a few magazines and on a few websites.. Did you upgrade shocks or did you stay stock shocks?

jgore2409 Yea ive been to a few trail rides when id wheel with friends but I've seen basic stuff clear to fully modified.. Around here there aren't alot of legal trails but we always find mudholes to play in
07-08-2013 03:22 PM
Theairhead Its actually more of a suburb community where I live but still large enough to see a couple jeeps everyday. I've never actually seen one that was heavily modded at all. Stock everything.

Where you located at? And yeah i completely follow what you mean bout Jeeps not living up to their potential..

jgore2409 Yeah upgraded coils and shocks were always my first thought on lifts, I'm not exactly sure why, but tire clearance isn't my only thing i want from a lift.. In my area everywhere you look you can see a Jeep with oversized wheels and tires but they don't do it right they just space the axles just to give them room to turn but you don't see a lifted Jeep that's done right in these neck of the woods in rural ohio
07-07-2013 09:53 PM
Theairhead If you just want clearance for tires you could look into tube fenders. I'm researching lifts for jks too around 2.5 inches. I can't decide if I just want spacers or upgrade coils and shocks.

I believe it was a 96 but i could be mistaken.. But again I've never really looked into them but I'm sure as heck going to.. I'm here for input and advice.. I just want something that's going to be able to handle some offroading (not a while bunch) but something that's going to give me clearance for bigger tires

Theairhead Are you planning on doing spacers or new coils and shocks?

I was looking to stay under a grand but i was thinking about 2.5 inches with 33 and like you said if i was going that far i might as well pull the entire suspension apart and do everything right but why fix it if it's not broken?
