TF Leveling pucks plus 2.5" lift? Or no?

I already have a TF leveling kit installed. I purchased a 2.5" RK lift kit (max travel). I'm wondering if I should leave the pucks in and use with the new kit? Or just do the kit and scrap the pucks?

I'm also afraid the new kit might not be much of a difference vs the pucks as its a .5" difference in front comparing the two.

Coil spring lifts are almost always much higher than advertised and in many cases, especially the 2 door people have gotten 3 to 3.5" out of a 2.5" advertised lift so you'll be much higher than a puck lift that averages 1.5" of lift (2" front and 1" rear) and will be able to do 35's if you wish.

The new lift will already level the Jeep so the leveling kit can go. Not to mention with the Jeep level after the new lift you don't want to do a leveling kit or your rear will sit much lower than the front.

One more note, if you find the lift is not high enough (which I believe it'll be fine) then you can always use just the 1" puck up front and 1" in back and you'll remain level as The front pucks from the leveling kit consist of two 1" pucks.

If you decide not to use the leveling kit I will take it off your hands for a fair price. Shoot me a PM if you want to sell it.

I am already running 35's as I have flat fenders, just wanted to make sure I wouldn't be disappointed should it be more close to advertised 2.5" and I already have 2" in the front. Sounds like I should expect to be about an inch higher maybe 1.5 average between both. That would be good for me. I think based on that if I left pucks in then I'm pushing 4-5" and that might be too steep.

I'll know for sure by monday what I plan to do, but they are looking like they would be available.

Yes true, you get in the 4-5" range and you'll be looking at new drive shafts, etc.

I installed the RK 3.5" lift and left the TF leveling kit in, but I took out 1" of pucks from the front since it has 2 1" pucks for their leveling kit. So my total lift is 4.5". With RK lifts it isn't a problem because everything is adjustable. It works great.

I didn't realize that it was two, as I dropped off unopened box w shop of the parts. Maybe I just have the new lift put in w the 1" up front and all else w the RK kit. My rear should stay higher as I don't run a spare and have he ORH soft top w just a rear tonneau cover basically. Much less weight back there than most.

The TF leveling kit raises you 2" in the front and 1" in the rear. The front consists of two 1" pucks stacked on each other. I removed 1 of the pucks in the front since the lift kit levels the jeep as it is. I'm pretty happy with how it sits now. I'm at about the maximum I'd want to go without changing drive axels. I can easily fit 37s but I really like how the 35s look with this much lift. When I go 37s I'm going to beef up the axels first. What a hobby huh? It is never ending. :-)
