Review & Install Video

I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com, and this is my review of the TeraFlex two and a half inch lift kit with shocks fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs. This kit is for a two-door JK, but there's also a kit available for a four-door. And you can get the kit with your choice of shocks, shock extensions, or neither if you decide to add your own shocks. This lift kit is for those of you who wanna add both ground clearance and clearance for slightly larger tires. You can actually fit up to a 35-inch tire with this lift kit, and are looking for a really complete kit. This is a little bit more expensive than some of the other lift kits on the market, but in my opinion, it's worth it for the completeness and for the quality of the components that are included. As far as the components that are included in the kit, let's first talk about the springs. These are a two and a half inch lift springs, so they are going to be longer than the factory springs, but they're also going to have a higher spring rate and be a little bit stiffer. That's nice because usually when you have a lift kit, you also have some other modifications that you can start adding some weight to the vehicle. When you have a heavy front bumper, a winch, a big heavy spare tire, your springs can start to sag, and these will hold up weight a lot better than the factory springs will. The kit also include all four TeraFlex nitro shocks. Having a nitrogen-charged shock has some benefits over a hydraulic shock. The nitrogen charge in the shock can help to prevent foaming and cavitation of the liquid inside of the shock which can eventually lead to shock fade. A nitrogen shock will generally ride a little bit firmer than a hydraulic shock, but some people like that because on the road it helps to control a little bit of body roll. This kit also includes both front and rear bump stop extensions. Now, bump stops serve a few different purposes on the Jeep. One, they'll keep the tire from rubbing on the body. And two, they'll protect both the shocks and the coil springs from damage. If you fully compress a shock or fully compress a coil spring, putting it into coil bind, you can damage those components and the bump stops help to protect them. Any time you're adding height to the Jeep, you'll also need to add some length to the bump stops. So the bump stops that are included in this kit are really important. I like especially the front bump stops that are in this kit because sometimes the bump stop extension will require you to drill and tap the front coil spring perch. These ones will go right in the factory bump stop location which means no drilling and no tapping. The rear track bar bracket that included in this kit is really beefy. It actually attaches to the axle in a total of three different locations, and it has a couple of different mounting holes so that you can adjust for the roll center on your Jeep. Having a weaker track bar bracket can cause the back of the Jeep to sway back and forth when you're driving down the road and going over bumps. So while this might not be the most exciting component you're putting on your Jeep, it is definitely important. Aside from all the hardware that's included in this kit, it also includes brake line relocation brackets. Any time you're adding this much height to a suspension, it's important to extend the brake lines, especially if you're going off-road, disconnecting your sway bars, and then really articulating and flexing especially the front axle of the Jeep. You can pull the brake line tight, and you certainly don't want to rupture a brake line. I personally prefer to put a new longer soft brake line in the front of the Jeep, but it requires a little bit more work than these brake line extension brackets do because you have to bleed out the system. No matter what method you use, whether it's the relocation brackets that are included in the kit or purchasing a new longer brake line, the most important thing is to extend the brake lines. Like I said before, this kit is really complete and the components that are included are really high quality. The only thing that you might wanna add to the kit are front and/or rear adjustable track bars to get the axles completely centered under the vehicle. But again, definitely not necessary. Getting this kit installed on our JK was pretty straightforward, and it installs just like most other lift kits would. The first step in the installation is to support the Jeep by the frame so that you can then remove or loosen any components to keep the axles from completely drooping. On this lift kit, we were able to completely remove both the front and rear sway bar links because the kit includes a new sway bar and links for the rear and remove the rear factory links up to the front. Another part you can completely remove are both the front and rear shocks because, of course, this kid includes new ones. And the most difficult bolt for me to remove on any lift kit installation is always the front top shock nut. There can be a lot of junk that gets thrown up in that area from the front tires, and that bolt is often really rusty. Nine times out of 10, if it's an older Jeep, you're just gonna end up breaking the nut off, you're not gonna be able to remove it fully. So that's an area where I definitely recommend hitting it with a good penetrating oil well before you get started. Other than that, you can remove one bolt from each of the track bars. We usually go with the axle side, but either side, it doesn't really matter. You'll have to remove the brake line bracket from the frame to give you enough slack to fully lower down the axle. And finally, you're gonna have to loosen up and remove the bolts on the drive shaft at the axle. Otherwise, the drive shaft is going to contact the exhaust and the cross member and it's not going to allow the axle to completely droop. Once you have all those components removed or loosened up, you can then droop the axle down, and the old springs will literally just fall right out. While you have them out, you can install your new bump stop extensions, put the new springs in, and install your new longer shocks. Then it's just a matter of putting everything else back together. You'll re-attach the track bars, the brake lines using the new brake line extension brackets out back, and put your drive shaft back together. The bolts, I always have a little bit of trouble getting lined back up after the lift kit is done are the track bar bolts. Just a little tip to help you get them lined up, after you get everything put back together, put the tires on the Jeep, and get it sitting under its own weight, then you can have a friend get in the Jeep and slightly turn the steering wheel back and forth. That'll help to line up the front track bar in the axle side bracket. Out back you can just have somebody push on the Jeep, and having the extra weight of the vehicle and the extra leverage will help you get that lined up in the back. It makes lining up those bolts a lot easier. The whole installation should take you about four hours, and you won't need any specialty tools, just an assortment of sockets and open-ended wrenches. It will help to have an extra set of hands around, but it's not necessary. That install time will vary greatly, depending on how rusty the Jeep is that you're working on, and if you have access to air or power tools and a lift. I think you get a lot of value for the price you pay for this lift kit. Like I said before, it is really complete. The only thing that I might consider adding, if I was gonna take the Jeep off-road, would be longer front brake lines. When you sag the suspension down, the lines do get just a little bit too tight for my comfort level, but other than that, I really like this kit. It gives you everything you need to get the Jeep lifted, run a larger tire, give you some additional ground clearance, and completely change the look of the Jeep all at a fair price. So that's my review of the TeraFlex two and a half inch lift kit with shocks fitting all 2007 to 2015 JKs that you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.

Will I need wheel spacers with this lift if I keep my factory wheels

JamesH

  • Wheel spacers will not be required with factory wheels and tire sizes with the Teraflex 2.5 in. Lift Kit. If you are using larger than stock tires on your stock wheels, you may need spacers, depending on the tire size.

Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon w 4.1 Want to use 33” tires. 1) Steering Stabilizer all say to buy this - which one? 2) will need to add exhaust spacer as stated 3) seems it is missing front brake extension- how do you fix aka buy? And do I need any other parts if I want to use the 17” stock Rubicon rims will they fit 33”. Plus is there anything else I will need to get rolling ? Thank you!

JohnJ

  • The Teraflex 2.5 in. Lift Kit will not require any additional components for a complete install. If you wish to run a steering stabilizer for smoother, more predictable steering, we recommend the Teraflex Falcon Nexus EF 2.2 Adjustable Stabilizer, Item J106882. The stock Rubicon wheels will accept a 33" tire, and this will be only 1" larger than the OEM tires in height. Width is where you will need to be concerned, as if a tire is too wide, you may require wheel spacers to prevent rubbing. From the factory you have 32x10" tires on the Rubicon. We would not recommend going larger than a 33X10 for off road or 33x11 for on road without spacers, or wheels with a different offset for better tire clearance.

If I put this lift kit on a 2010 JK will I need to get exhaust spacers? The exhaust spacers that you can order with the kit say they will not fit a 2010 JK.

JohnZ

  • Hi Just for clarification in regards to the Teraflex 2.5 in lift kit w/ shocks will only need the exhaust spacers IF you have the 2012-2018 JK , but for your 2010 you will not need the exhaust spacers.

I’m looking at the customer pictures of this 2.5” Teraflex kit and I’m wondering why do some of the Jeeps with this lift installed still have some of that factory rake, while some others with the same lift have a nice level look? Is there anything to do with model year that will affect that? I want to get rid of any sort of front rake and 2.5” of lift is all I need so I want to make sure I can get a nice and level look with this. Thanks.

Kyle

  • Heavy aftermarket bumpers with winches, etc, can cause the front to sag a little more, additionally until the springs settle completely they can sit a little higher. After installing the Teraflex 2.5 in. Lift Kit w/ Shocks and you wait the time for the springs to settle, if you notice some small differences- you can install a small spacer to level out the Jeep.

What size wheel spacer would you recommend with this lift to run 34x 12.50 tired on stock rubico n wheels? Thanks

DavidH

  • We do not suggest running a 12.5" wide tire on the Rubicon wheels since they are only 7.5" wide and tire manufacturers require at least an 8.5" or 9" wide wheel for a 12.5" wide tire to mount properly.

1. I believe my wheels are 18 inch with they fit with this kit? 2. Do i need to have my gears adjusted with this kit, or would i be able to install and be good to go? As far as i know everything on my Jeep is stock. I just upped the tires alittle to like a 285 i think. I have a sahara but ive always felt it sits high. I had a rental wrangler sport and mine was higher but im not sure if saharas come higher or not.

DeannaP

  • Yes, your stock wheels will be compatible with the Teraflex 2.5 in. Lift Kit w/ Shocks. You would not need to re-gear with this kit unless you installed larger diameter tires and wheels, and even then it would vary based on the stock gear ratio you have on your Sahara and the tire size you upgraded to. Just adding a lift would not require re-gearing. We'd be happy to discuss re-gearing with you more if you have any other questions!

    Great price for the quality!!

    This kit was relatively easy to install using floor jacks and jack stands (approx. 8 hours with 2 of us not hurrying). The instructions could have been better, but web videos helped also. The look is great for 35" tires. A bit stiff at first, but I am told that the suspension will soften a little over time. The price was great for the very good quality! All parts were packaged well and I am overall very happy that I went with this kit!

    Great kit

    Did a lot of research and ended up getting the TF 2.5 kit. Perfect amount of lift to give a little boost, take out the factory rake, and run larger tires down the road. Sticking with new factory rims/tires for now with 1.25" Coyote spacers. Rides a little stiffer than factory, not a bad thing, overall better over the road bumps, turns and terrain. Highly recommend for daily driver and weekends on the trail.

On my jku I knocked it out in 3.5 hours using: 2xjack stands 1x 2 ton jack with 22'' lift height Air torque gun 1/2 inch ratchet and sockets Swivel socket for the impact gun 10inch extension for impact. Heavy flat head 8inch Kit looks great, feels great, it's amazing to drive with and there is a definite notice when you get in. Just watch the video on YouTube and Take it step by step.

Had put on 33 inch tires and a bunch of mods the stock suspension was sagging pretty good and I wanted more tire clearance. This lift kit did everything I wanted!!
