Teraflex 3 in. Lift Kit w/ Flex Arms
or
Teraflex 3 in. Elite LCG Long Arm Suspension System

its going to be a weekend warrior so i'm looking for comfort but i want to know it can tackle most obstacles. I am also looking at going and getting some disconnects as well....

i am looking for the pro's and cons here and would just like some input

thanks for the help

Grab a cup of joe and settle in for some lengthy reading and learning. Scour the threads on the likes of these you ask.

Lol. That's a good budget. I like RK. Are you doing the lift or a shop? Look at this.

3k for the lift

3k for wheels and tires

Trust me, it never stops there.

1k for under armor

Then Rock rails, rear bumper, front bumper new diff covers and on and on and on.

Do a lot of research. Keep an eye out for Kjeeper10. He's a big help.

Doing the work yourself gives you piece of mind it's done right. If you read through these threads you'll notice a lot of complaints about shabby shops.

TF, RK Rancho, MC and many other lift manufactures to choose from. The more complete the kit, the more expensive. Most people build on the kit over time, depending on there needs. Its a hobby. In my case an addiction. Lol

If you take your time, educate yourself you can save a lot of $$.

This is also helpful. Check out different builds, lots of cool ideas.

With 35" you also might want to re-gear. A lot can be done with 8k.

2.5" easy money, anything over gets expensive and complex.

With a 4d, no doubt, I would go 3.5". A JKU has a lot of belly. Anyway, 3.5, 4" with 35", they look amazing.
And if you went 2.5, you'll wish you went higher.

Start slow! With Rock Crawler, the lift it's designed so you can add to it. Do RK coils track bars and links with Rancho's 9000's shocks. Then later start adding arms and so on.

BTW Rancho is having a big promo now and XL9000's are 9 position adjustable. Awesome shocks.

That's true with a 2dr. With a 4dr its not as bad.
