Yeah those run too big. See, certain "35"" tires run bigger than other "35"" tires. KM2s, for instance run more at around 33.8, even though their technacially a 35". Toyos typically run at exactly 34.8" so they are actually a bigger 35" than a KM2 or Mickey. I plan on running 35" KM2s and from what I read, no one really cuts their pinch seam for them, but I think it's a good idea to anyway, even if they don't rub. Some jeeps can flex more than others, and the ones that flex a little more will need more room, which is why you see people cutting their seams at 35" tires, but if you know your rig won't flex a extreme amount, no use worrying but again, still not going to hurt if you just trimmed them anyway.

TeraFlex All spring lifts will net you over the the stated lift height, our 2.5" lift is closer to 3. This is help to compensate for things like bumpers and winches. However that being said a 2.5" lift you are fine. The reason people state over 3" of lift is because a 3" lift can give you 3.5" and up depending on the company. The biggest differences is what that lift nets you after the extras are added, on our 2.5 lift we guarantee that after the goodies are added the Jeep will be at least 2.5". If this doesn't make any thing more clear just give us a ring and we'll be happy to talk to you about everything. 801-288-2585

kjeeper10 That pic is not fully stuffed. Still another 1-2" of bumpstop. Matter of fact the jounce (yellow) bumper was sitting on the bumpstop.
The pitch seem is what 1/2" in further than the rubi rail?

I'm also running 3.5" of lift. 2.5" a 35" will hit the seam.

Is that the Rubi rail or pinch seam? On Non-Rubis, there's no rock slider that will touch the tire. And the pinch seam is out of the way for most 35" even flexed. Only chance of rubbing will be with a true 35" or 37", but most people don't run a true 35"

For 35", nah. You don't NEED to. You won't rub even off roading, but you will need to cut them for 37"s.

Your safer with the TF. RK is known for stiffer coils, TF usually end up at right around 2.5-3" so no drive shaft swap needed.

Big Fran Here is my JKU with a Teraflex 2.5 lift and 35's.
08-01-2013 10:32 PM
Thornton93 I do plan to add tire carrier bumper and a winch some time in the future. So with that added weight will I still be fine with the 2.5 TF lift?

Yea... Def safer with a 4 door. Remember, RK's heights are based on a fully outfitted rig. Bumpers/winch/tire carrier/etc.

Whoop... There it is. I plan on going with the RK lift as well, just don't want more lift (problems) that I need to deal with. Hopefully I won't be too high in an Unlimited. And now, because of you (over Facebook), I now know what shocks I'm getting. I thought that if I took time off this forum, I could save some money.. Turns out you guys are on Facebook too.. I'm safe no where!!

And To the OP, as everyone else said, 2.5" will be enough, and if you decide you want more flex room, flat flares with the 2.5" will be perfect. There's actually a good number of people who ran their 35"s before they even had on their lift and most say that it didn't rub too bad on bumpy roads. So with a leveling kit and flat flares, you could totally pull off 35" with very little rub disconnected and no rub while connected.

onetraveller You don't need a lift. Flat fenders will provide all the clearance you need to run 35s. The stock suspension offers more wheel travel then most of the budget lifts.

Thornton93 Is that a 2.5 TF lift?
07-31-2013 05:55 PM
kjeeper10 Lower the lift less the issues. 2.5" is more than enough for 35's.
Need more room, trim the flares.

Time for 40's

Thornton93 What is the warranty for teraflex lifts?
07-31-2013 12:10 PM
TeraFlex With 35's you really only need 2.5" of lift especially for mud, If you need a little more articulation a 3" lift is a good way to go.
07-31-2013 11:31 AM
Daniel_M Out of the 3 hands down Rock Krawler. Then TF. BDS would be my last choice of those 3.

Look at Synergy/Poly Performance too.
