Leveling Kit
 
Hey all, a fairly new Jeeper with a 2013 Unlimited Moab edition. I don't really want much of a lift kit (I know I'm odd) but I've been looking at a 3/4 inch front leveling kit. Thoughts?

931JK 07-15-2013 03:49 PM

I got the teraflex leveling kit for my jk and couldn't be happier with it. I didn't like the rake the jk came with from the factory and this kit really helped the looks out. I am not mechanically inclined at all and had no problem installing it. I will probably be getting another kit for my wife's unlimited sahara.

PatTX 07-15-2013 03:52 PM

Thanks 931JK, have the on road manners changed at all with the leveling kit?

931JK 07-15-2013 04:11 PM

To me it rides the same. It does sit up higher so you have to take that into consideration. I ordered my kit from summit racing and when it came they gave me a $20 coupon code on my next purchase,that might not be a lot to some but I thought it was pretty cool.

I highly recommend the teraflex performance leveling kit. I don't like the pucks. I have seen them disintegrate. Not worth the safety. Do it right and get coils.

PatTX 07-15-2013 04:20 PM

Ok well thats awesome! I will look into summit racing then, hey $20 is $20 it'll go towards something!

Thanks for the advice! How much do you think instillation would cost to do this? Im not mechanically inclined at all...

Well, it's an easy step by step process, so if you have some tools and pizza money, invite a few local jeepers over, feed them pizza and they will help out, plus you'll get to learn something. If you MUST use a shop, the labor for the pucks and the coils would be exactly the same. Pucks go on top of factory coils.

Sounds like a plan to me, Thanks for your help!

You got it. Post up in your local section and post that you need help installing a kit. 20 people will jump to help you. Pizza and beer are required. :D

I have the Teraflex 2" leveling kit on mine and I am very happy with it. Rides the same as stock. Here is is with the new 33" Duratracs.

Damn that looks good

Ameration, that's the look I'm going for...

Glad I could help. The kit I have is the Teraflex 1155200 Leveling kit (2" spacers up front, 1" in the rear). I paid $130 shipped from Jason at Krawl Off-road. Tires are Duratrac 33x12.50R15's.

Any other info you need or questions let me know.

Dmc1 07-21-2013 09:21 AM

Did you have to have the front end aligned or does this kit not affect this? Thanks and your Jeep looks great!
Jeep Safe!

Looks awesome! That's probably what I'll end up doing because I'm still in high school and don't have too much cash to work with! I'll probably do the 3/4in leveling kit with 32s (the Moab edition came with 31s and I don't understand why...)

MillerWelds87 07-21-2013 11:18 AM

Iam very happy how it turned out.

The TF Leveling Kit should not affect the alignment, but you might have to re-center the steering wheel (if it is not centered, some times the ABS will get triggered too easily in situations like getting hit with a gust of wind from the side). Easy to re-center; here's a link: Steering wheel alignment

ameration 07-21-2013 04:40 PM

I didn't even need to recenter the steering wheel after my install. Still straight as stock.

Does anyone run the 34-35" Duratracks with the Teraflex spacer lift?
If so any problems?
Thanx

Can I ask what kind of tires those are? I understand they're the standard Rubicon ones, but I really like the look of them.

I had these on my rig for a year and a half before I got a new suspension lift. They rode great, and were in great shape when I gave them to a friend. Coil or puck, both are super easy to do and can be done in your driveway.

slimatsea 07-21-2013 09:54 PM

I run the TF performance leveling kit. Performs better than stock suspension BY ALOT. Great daily driver and flexes great offroad. http://i457.photobucket.com/albums/q...719131927a.jpg

sunnykk 07-21-2013 10:26 PM

I have the Teraflex Spacer leveling kit (2" Front/1" Back) with 33" Duratracs and I am very happy. Haven't noticed any change in ride.

Let's try this again, anyone with the Teraflex budget spacer lift running 34-35 Dura tracks?

I ran the leveling kit with 35x12.50x15 bfg km's for a little while an it ran just fine. Rubbed offroad though even without disconnecting

jadmt 07-22-2013 01:16 AM

I think if you want to run 35" with only a budget lift you probably will need to run flat fenders as well.

I'm running 315/75/16 Duratracs on no lift with Bushwacker flatties. The tires themselves measured 33.75" once on. You can probably run them on the street without any issues, but if you flex offroad or disco you'll probably rub a little.

They are the stock BFGs 255/75R17. Which measure 32x10R17. They are really good tire!
