My 2013 JKU is a DD that will hardly ever see offroad. I am wanting to lift 2.5 and put on 35 tires for pure looks!!! Here is my question:

Should I get the Teraflex 2.5 coil lift with shock adapters $498.74

Tera Flex JK 4-DR 2.5 inch Lift Kit, W/ Shock Adapters (1352000)

or

Teraflex 2.5 Budget Boost with Bilstein 5100 $559.35

TeraFlex JK Wrangle 2.5 inch Performance Budget Boost, Bilstein Shocks - TER1355200

Since both are within $60 of each other, what should I buy? I don't plan on adding a front or rear bumper anytime in the future, at least not for a few years.

Thank you

If just for looks find a cheap budget boost spacer kit. You won't need the extra flex the longer coils provide, just my $.02

$350 gets you a TF 2.5" BB with shock adapters from quadratec

For what you are going to do, I recommend the Rough Country Series II 2.5 budget boost and a set of Rubicon Express control arm geometry brackets.

Most RC lifts aren't highly reviewed on here, but this being a spacer lift is a nice piece and includes parts that most other budget boosts do not, like brake line extensions and track bar bracket.

Combined it's $280... You can easily upgrade shocks at a later time as well.

Rough Country 2.5" Series II Suspension Spacer Lift Kit without Shocks - RC-634

Rubicon Express Front Control Arm Drop Brackets - Black Powdercoated - RUB-RE9800

Typically I recommend spring kits and the TF is awesome if you go that way. But with no offroad, it's just not really getting you any additional benefits...

Hi all. I've been kinda of deciding on this as well. Just another questions for the experts.

I am also a DD but want to do the same 2.5 lift with 35s. But i do live the the NJ area and would want to take it sometimes to the pine barrens. Nothing hard core but it is basicallly wet land offroading. Would I have any risks with just putting on the BB lift? Or should i just get the lift with the coils and shocks?

Thanks all

^your fine. I have yet to see any puck lifts fall off when over extending anyways.
Agree it would take a very poorly executed shock replacement...

Rough Country Series II spacer lift with shock extenders=$179
With 2.2 shocks=$349
With Rancho RS5000=$326 with Rancho rebate

If Rancho, which ones? I see for 0-2" lift and 4" lift

I'm leaning towards the spacer kit and Rancho's.

I just looked at your post closer, you said the Rancho RS5000X. Where can I order those from?

Ok, I will look for them. But what part numbers. Since I am wanting to use the 2.5 spacer, would I use the 0-2" lift shock or 4" lift shock?

Thanks so much!

I would use RS55329 and RS55330 for that application.

I looking on Rancho's site and see that I can order the 29&30. Right now I am having a hard time locating the shocks on the internet.
