Teraflex Sport S/T3 Pic Requests and Lift Experience

I just ordered my Teraflex Sport S/T3 lift from a local shop. Now I need to make a decision on wheels and tires (looking at 35s on 17" wheel & factory fenders more than likely) before they do the install in the next couple of weeks. I did a search and didn't come up with a lot on that specific lift. I'd like to hear from those with the lift and see pics of your rigs to get some ideas on where to go with my build with the S/T3 as the base.

I like this lift, but I ultimately went with a much cheaper TF alternative.

This thread has quite a few https://www.wranglerforum.com/f202/te...1573281-2.html

From Google:

2016 Jeep Wrangler with a 3" Teraflex S/T3 lift, Bushwacker flat fenders, N-Fab side steps and 37" Nitto Trail Grappler tires on 20" Ballistic wheels.

I really like this lift. It drives really well. I added jks quick disconnects and the teraflex rear adjustable trackbar. The rear axle was still off enter 3/4 of an inch. The adjustable rear trackbar centered it.

I also added a full rock hard skid plate system and enhanced rock rails since then and have not noticed any lowering in the height.

Wow! Still 3/4" off even with the bracket? Your Jeep looks great!

Those look amazing. I wish I had the budget for 37s and all of the necessities to go with them.

Has anyone purchased this lift in the last couple of weeks? My shop ordered mine with the Fox shocks last week and were advised it is on backorder for 3 weeks waiting on shocks. When I look at the Teraflex website, they don't even show this lift with Fox now. They all have Falcons included. I'm wondering if I'm getting Falcon 3.1s instead of Fox. Anyone have any recent experience?

I've put almost 60k on my Mopar Stage III (now the Teraflex S/T3)
Started off with 37s and factory fenders.
Then 37s and chopped fenders
Then added a 1.25" body lift
Then added a 1" coil lift.
Then added the Falcon 3.3 shocks

My build thread is below if you want to see the evolution (the one marked HIS)

Good luck!!

I installed mine about a month ago with the Falcon 3.1 shocks. I went from a 2.5" Teraflex Budget Boost to the S/T3. It actually lifted it about 1.5" above the measured locations with the 2.5.

Your Jeep looks awesome! What size tire are you running?

I'm wondering if mine will be coming with the 3.1 instead of the Fox. The Fox shows shocks are in stock on the TF site, but the 3.1 shows unavailable. According to the shop that ordered my lift, it is on back order due to the shocks. That makes me think it may not be coming with the Fox as he originally indicated and I'm fine with that based on the Falcon reviews I've seen.

Thanks! I'm running 35x12.50x17 Goodyear MT/R on the original Mopar Beadlocks. You won't be disappointed with the Falcons if that's what you end up getting.

TerraFlex S/T 3 lift with Fox 2.0 shocks
17x8 BlackRhino Warlords
35x12.5x17 Toyo Open Country M/T

So far i love this kit, I daily drive my jeep and have no complaints on the ride quality. The M/Ts make it a bit more bumpy and give it a much "Different" feel then A/Ts but that is expected.

Overall, the kit performs VERY well on/off road and turns heads.

Thanks! I forgot to add that I also have 1.5" spacers due to my wheels not having 4.5" of backspacing or less.

So if you dont want wheel spacers go with a wheel that has 4.5" or less of backspacing.

I purchased a wheel with 4.75" backspacing. Quadratec assured me that would be fine with this lift and 35x12.5x17 tires. I sure hope so.

I just got done installing the S/T3 and was able to upgrade to the Alpine Arms so I guess technically that might make it a CT3. Here is a pic of it with spare off my brothers Jeep. Just wanted to see how it was going to look when I can actually drop the cash for some tires and wheels.

I added this lift about a month ago with the Fox resi shocks along with 35" tires on my rims. I went up 3.5" in the rear at center and 4.5" in the front at center. Im sure once everything settles in it will be closer to 3" and 4". Its a great lift and includes everything. I also like the fact that I can really upgrade this lift later to make it go from great to awesome!!

I ended up with about the same numbers as Bigdawg2261. Overall I am very pleased with the lift and the ride. I did end up going with the Falcon 3.1 shocks. If you are looking at wanting to go bigger later I would look at the CT3 kit. It is basically the same thing as the S/T3 but comes with the adjustable Alpine arms.
