TF Budget boost install

Got my Terraflex JK 2.5" Budget Boost w/ Shock Extensions in the mail today so it looks like i have a project for this weekend!

I went with part # 1355210 because I'm planning to re-use the stock shocks for right now (they are brand new) and replace them with something better (Ranchos?) down the line.

I hope this is the correct kit for re-using the stock shocks.... someone stop me before i tear into this project if I got the wrong kit...

I plan to be doing this myself in the driveway on jack stands. Any words of advice on the install? Anything I need to look out for?

Thx in advance.

I started with the shock extensions. Just make sure they're included before you tear in.

While you are under the Jeep get the 9/16" bolt kit and change out the bolts to pre-empt the Death Wobble.

Check out the sticky for more info. I ordered mine from Northridge.

I did as you are doing using shock extensions until I was able to upgrade to some 5000x Ranchos.

I would skip the bolt kit and do a exhaust spacer.

And yes, make sure EVERYTHING is there before you tear down your JK.

And hang on to the original front spring isolators! You'll need them if you upgrade to a spring kit. My shop pitched them when they installed my Budget Boost, and it was a nightmare to find a set during the install of my new kit when everything was torn apart ($100 for next-morning FedEx).

Certainly don't throw away the isolators... the Budget boost kit uses them.

No, it doesn't. Not if we're talking about the same thing. The original front spring isolators were not used in my installation.

Absolutely! Even if the shop had offered to return the old parts, I probably would have said "no" at the time, as I didn't know any better. Expensive lesson!
