AEV vs. Teraflex
 
Looking for some input from you folks on lift choice. I realize this just comes down to opinion but it looks like I am going with a 2.5" lift and what some input on the Teraflex 2.5" lift kit with shocks vs. AEV 2.5" DualSport XT Suspension System with Bilstein Shocks. Another question, I have a JKU, if I went a little bigger say 3" or 3.5", would I need to do any work to the shafts??

AEV = more street
TF = off road

I was in the same dilemma a week ago and this helped me...

I have the Teraflex 3" on a 2-door (which ended up being more like 4") with 4 control arms. I love it. It's killer off road, and I just drove it from Denver to Chicago and back. It handles admirably on the street (MPG with the rest of the mods is another story).

To me the Teraflex is better then AEV with OME and Rock Krawler being a great choice over AEV also. AEV is more in line with the very good lifts while the others are more premium IMO.

The JKU can go to 3.0 and most 3.5" with no drive shaft issues. The 2 dr is limited to 2.5" with most 3" lifts working.
