2014Sahara I did not notice any difference in handling. I did need to make a slight adjustment to straighten the steering wheel, the tech from TF advised that as well.

Just curious, did this effect road handling at all?

123Jato Do it right the first time. Do a 2.5" lift with no pucks. High quality lifts usually give more than advertised in the front to make up for the winch & bumper. RK & MC both have great 2.5" options and allow you to choose your own shocks.

CollegiateJeeperDB TF Performance Leveling Kit is what I would Recommend. The coil springs that come in it are better than stock coils and will hold up more with the added weight of bumpers/winch. I used the spacer kit ($110 puck kit from TF) less than a year ago right after I added my front bumper and the factory rake is back almost ocmpletely, havn't added the winch yet either.
Just got my Performance leveling kit over the weekend so I plan to install that in place of the old one, but keep the pucks just in case the front lowers a little more after adding a winch I could simply toss in a puck on either side in the front.

Plus, I've read posts in here about the pucks deteriorating over time, causing a loss in the lift provided and perhaps a safety issue. Just spend the extra money to do it right the first time, unlike me.

NWHoneybadger 2 weeks ago I put in a tereflex 2.5" spacer kit with shock extensions. I wanted to get rid of the front end sag, especially after I put my winch bumper on. It leveled the jeep nicely. I didn't go with springs because I read that they don't actually level the jeep without adding additional spacers, at least with tereflex. I also needed a little bit of height to clear 33's from fender rub on full articulation, despite what has been said. Here's a before and after with the lift.

JeeperJake My 08 JK is level enough with stock set up.

I have yet to become enamored with the results or intent of the project involving this.

My opinion, you asked. YMMV.

Research is complete - now to buy???

I've read soooooo many threads on lifts vs level, new wheels vs spacers, stock gears vs regear, etc etc etc - you get the idea..
I have realized I want to level my new to me 2011 Mojave. I won't ever want a full blown lift, bigger than stock tires or have a desire to regear.
Knowing all of this, I've looked at everything from spacer kits to the spring kits like EVO and such. My question is to those having a level kit with either the level springs or spacers.
Am I going to notice any difference spending the extra money for the new coils vs spacers? Don't mind spending the funds if it is worth it for someone not ever going any higher in lift or tires?
Almost all of the articles I have read seem that most run the spacers as a temp until they have the funds for a full blown lift. My gut is telling me to do the coils front and rear then customize with a small spacer if needed when I do add the bumpers and winch (probably will be a few months before I can do this)?
Please share your thoughts from those who have done or thinking about what I am looking to do? In your thoughts please give me your recommendation on what brand of level kit and why, should I keep my factory rubi shocks and any pictures of your leveled JKU on stock size tires.
Thanks so much!!!!
