the teraflex 2.5 is higher than advertised because they chose the kit to handle a full loaded jk/jku.

The vss shocks twin tubes compliment the kit nicely from what i've read. No complaints. You could also do a cheaper route and get the kit w/ rubicon monotube takeoffs.

RC although cheaper, and have lifetime warranty...parts are replaced very often.

MonsterTJ Well I cant say if that is true or not cause it can vary from lift to lift and model to model but I installed an RC 6" lift on my 06 z71 I had and got more than 6" it was almost 7" and tires and all were the same as before the lift at that time, now I just installed the 2.5" coil and shock kit from RC on my TJ and got more than 2.5" granted my TJ is a 98 and needed new shocks and probably springs too and im sure had sag so that could be the cause of more lift but I definitely got the 2.5" and my wifes jku although only a spacer lift got the 2.5" as well, here are before and after pics of my TJ just trying to let you see true results, again this isnt a high performance lift but it works for me and only time will tell for spring sag the first pic is bone stock the second pic is with only the 1.25" body lift and the 3rd pic is with the body lift and 2.5" RC coil and shock lift, showing these so you can see how much each added and get the jest of how much the RC lift did edit also same wheels and tires in all pics 265/70/17 on stock rims just plasti dipped

JKU.12 I have nothing against RC... Few friends run their lifts. I'm just concerned of spring sag over time and not getting close to the advertise height.

I've read... Again read.. That guys installed 2.5 TF and got more height, and guys have installed RC and got way less...??

Cause honestly if I go RC... I'm gonna do the 3.5" lift cause it's the same price as the 2.5 TF coils minus shocks.

MonsterTJ Why not get the RC lift minus shocks cause their coils are good, get the new sway bar links with the track bar bracket as well an then buy some bilstein shocks and probably still be under $500 I just installed their 2.5" spacer series 2 lift, on my wifes 2012 jku it came with new rear sway bar links for the rear and you put the rear stocks on the front, and also the track bar bracket so if you got coils and eliminated the spacer and some nicer shocks if you want better performance I think you would be happy with the RC lift

So this set up here...

And it's in my budget.

But again, I can do a full RC kit and have everything for cheaper or when go RC 3.5" for $500.

Just want to buy once and be happy. Sure don't want to install a lift and only gain an inch

I understand variables play a part on actual lift height outcome... But there still is an unacceptable factor

MonsterTJ I dont have any experience with them but my RC N2.2 shocks are pretty nice but I know they arent nearly as nice as bilstein and several others but they will be sufficient for my purposes
10-07-2013 08:44 AM
JKU.12 How are teraflex shocks?
10-06-2013 09:57 PM
MonsterTJ I dont have a jk but just installed my 2.5" RC coil and shock lift on my tj and then a 2.5" series 2 RC spacer with tbd and new rear sway bar links on my wifes jku and both lifts were quality and lifted it what they said it would and my coil lift probably gave me more but i have no other add ons such as bumpers or winches yet but i am a rare off roader and mainly a on road driver so if your more offroad then you may want something geared more towards performance which isnt rough country

JKU.12 Running the RC spacers. Was given to me by a buddy

JTPhoto JK What spacer lift do you have now?

My vote is for TeraFlex.

Lift Opinion.. TeraFlex or RC, who is true on 2.5"

So Im looking at adding a coil lift and dumping the spacers this winter.

I'd like to keep it at $500 to start and upgrade upgrade at later time, so here is where Im at.

$500 can get me 3.5" RC complete lift

$350ish can get me 2.5" complete lift

$450ish can get me TeraFlex springs

I already have shock and brake extensions, so I can always add new shocks for the Teraflex springs in the future.

But I want a coil lift that is true to the advertise height or at least closest.

The Jeep is a weekend driver and vacation mobile. Off roading is mainly trails like Gemini Bridges and Schafer's Trail.
Dont really wheel it when at home. Would like to set up more for Overland than Rock crawler
