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.

  • Thank you for your question! Yes, you would still need the spacer so the exhaust does not interfere with the drive shaft.

Hey, will I be able to run 33x12.5x17r tires on my factory 17in. wheels; or will I need to get aftermarket wheels with a different backspacing for the right clearances?

KJW

  • You will require wider aftermarket wheels with the correct offset in order to fit 33x12.50R17's on your Wrangler.

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

  • 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.

With this lift, will it interfere with the rubicons quick disconnect sway bar?

ShonC

  • No, the Rubicon's quick disconnect sway bar disconnects from the center of the sway bar. As long as you install the sway bar links that are included with the lift kit to accommodate for the lift, there shouldn't be any interference.

    Never installing a Lift kit before I found this kit to be rather easy although it does take a majority of the day with a friend. I could probably do a second kit in half the time now. I did have 0" lift with 33" tires and put this 2.5" lift on with a new Teraflex steering stabilizer, Teraflex spacers and 35" tires. I couldn't believe how I cannot tell the difference between the 33 w/o lift and the 35 w/2.5 lift. Heck, it might even ride smoother now with the new shocks. If the biggest you want to go is 35s then buy this kit. When you pull it out of the box and see the size of the springs and quality of the machining you will be happy you chose Teraflex.

    Awesome lift.....

    After deliberating for weeks, I decided to go with this one and I'm glad we did. It took about 4 hours from beginning to end with help from the wife. Installation went smooth, it looks great with 35" KO's on 16" wheels. Rides way smoother than stock, I was absolutely blown away. Great job teraflex...

    Product is worth the cost - Instructions could be better

    I did a lot of research before deciding to buy this kit and I am very happy with it. I gave me just enough lift to fit the 34" tires I bought. Just handling the pieces, you can tell they are high quality. I almost went with a much cheaper set, but realized that this is not the area to skimp on quality. Having said that, the instructions could be better. Between the PDF on this site, the ones in the box, and the video on Tera's YouTube channel, they all seemed to be different and a bit confusing at times. Definitely helps to have a lift, air compressor, and extra hand.

    Excellent Lift!

    Awesome lift. Very happy with it so far. Installed myself, took all day (10 hours) with limited tools and an extra set of hands. I'd recommend getting/renting/acquiring a spring compressor instead of having to lower everything that far. Also suggest an adjustable track bar for the front. I also got the exhaust extension but I haven't installed it yet, and so far I haven't had any issues with stock exhaust piping... Directions are not the easiest to follow - if you're new to lifts - do you research while you wait for the shipment. Great lift, easy enough install, high quality, excellent price. Couldn't be happier.

    Great small lift

    It took all day to get the lift in, having never done a lift before, but it wasn't that complicated. And the difference was amazing. I went up to 35" tires and needed the clearance and I got what I wanted. Everything fit nicely. Plus, I get lots of flex when out on the trail. And it rides just as good as stock while on the street. Very happy with this setup.

    Nice lift kit

    I recently had the Teraflex 2.5" lift kit installed on my 2015 Jeep Wrangler JK along with a set of 33" tires. I must say, the look of the jeep was exactly what I was going for. I did notice, however a lot of play in the steering afterwards (which seems a little scary and unsafe). The guy at the shop recommended a Teraflex steering stabilizer, which I ordered. The ride isn't all that much different with the lift kit installed, but overall I'm happy with this purchase. Definitely do your research before lifting your jeep, but you can't go wrong with purchasing the Teraflex lift kit from extreme terrain.

    Great from the mall to the mountains

    When looking for a lift to take a JKU through the north East snow covered hills to the center city mall this fits the bill. Takes a bit of skill to install but if you have a Jeepers attitude it can be done and will give you pride when complete. Leveled out the 2015 JKU WITH PLENTYOF ROOM FOR 35's The ride is not stock but a rider not familier with the stock ride will never comment that it is rough. As an avid jeeper it gives you the feeling your connected to the ground and in control Directions are good but missing an important step on how to remove front break brisket from the line, with some deductive thinking a large crescent wrench and locking pliers issue resolved
