The TeraFlex 2.5-inch Lift Kit without shocks is for those of you that have a 4-door 2007 and up JK and are looking to run a set of 33-inch tires. I would recommend sticking with a set of 33s. With this lift kit, you can, of course, go a little bit bigger, but you are going to sacrifice a little bit of up travel. And if you plan on going smaller than a set of 33s, you can probably get away with just a leveling kit. So, again, 2.5 inches I usually recommend right around a 33-inch tire.Now, I really do like this kit here because it does come with a lot of the components you need to get it installed and installed properly and working really well both on-road and off-road. Again, this is the kit without shocks, but you can also get this with shock extensions if you'd like to run your factory shocks or with a set of TeraFlex shocks included, if you want to go that route. Going with this option, without shocks, allows you to pick whichever shocks on the market you like. Of course, they do need to be the proper length for your new setup.As far as the parts that are included in this kit, again, they are going to be very high-quality parts and you are going to get everything you need to run this kit properly. Now, of course, you are going to have a longer set of coil springs. These are going to provide the full 2.5 inches of lift. Unlike some other kits on the market that will force you to run a lift spring and a spacer, you're going to get all 2.5 inches of lift from the springs.Over here, you're going to get a rear track bar bracket and this is a very high-quality bracket. This makes contact with the frame in a couple of different locations. It's going to be very, very solid. You're not going to get any flex or sway out of this track bar bracket. It is very well built and that's important. TeraFlex does make a couple of rear track bar brackets. This is the beefier one. This is the better one that you are going to wanna be running.The kit's also going to include a new set of sway bar end links. And these are the end links that are going to go in the rear of the Jeep allowing you to move your factory rear end links up to the front of the jeep, giving you the proper length sway bar and links all the way around to give you that proper sway bar angle. Over here, you have your bump stop extensions. And these are something that a lot of kits will leave out, but they are very, very important.These extensions are going to ensure that your tires are not going to hit the body and that depending on the length of the shock you're running, that the shock isn't going to fully compress, which can cause some damage to that shock. TeraFlex is also going to include a set of brake line extension brackets that come in this kit that's going to ensure that you're not going to pull a brake line taut when you're off-road, especially if you go ahead and disconnect your sway bars when you're off-road to really maximize the suspension articulation.This kit is going to be a two out of three wrench installation. You can probably get this done in your driveway around three hours or so, depending on the tools that you have at your disposal. Of course, if you have a lift and air or power tools, you can install lift kit much quicker, but you can also do this on a jack and jack stands in your driveway with just some hand tools. It'll just take a little bit more time.Now whenever you're installing a lift kit, the first step is going to be jacking up the jeep and supporting it by the frame, so that you can then loosen or remove any of the components that keep the axles from completely sagging. That's going to be your sway bar end links, your shocks, your track bars, and, of course, your brake line brackets. That will allow you to fully sag your axle down underneath the jeep, popping the factory springs out, and allowing you to reinstall your new springs. Then as you're putting everything back together, you'll be installing the rest of these components.Of course, moving those sway bar end links from the back to the front, installing the new ones in the rear, attaching your rear track bar bracket before bulking up your factory track bar, and installing all of your bump stop extensions before installing your brake line extension brackets and buttoning everything up. Again, this is a fairly simple install as far as lift kits go. You're not going to have to do any cutting or major modification of your jeep. But any lift kit install is going to be fairly involved. So if it's not something you feel comfortable tackling, you can always take your jeep to a shop and have this installed.This kit's gonna run you just shy of $500 and I do think that's a very fair price for what you're getting. Of course, some of the kits that are more expensive out there are going to include shocks and you would expect them to be because shocks are an expensive and very important component in your lift kit. But for a kit that doesn't include shocks, I think, this is priced very fairly because you're getting a lot of components and you're getting very high-quality components. So, if you're looking for a really high-quality lift kit, I would definitely recommend taking a look at this TeraFlex 2.5-inch that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

I wanted a good sturdy lift that wasn’t going to change too much of the factory suspension on my jeep. I have been a dealer mechanic for a long time and understand that when you change too much geometry under the vehicle with out going completely crazy in parts and funds you end up with a vehicle that is subpar as compared to what you originally started with. So after looking through many kits, I finally decided that this one would do the trick of getting me enough clearance for bigger tires with out short cutting several other components on my ride. I bought the kit without shocks and separately ordered the Fox 2.0s to complement and it was a good pairing. Installation was pretty straight forward but the included instructions are a little vague for the first timer so you will want to see the video on you tube if you have never installed a lift before. Test drive after the lift was very surprising as most of the body roll was gone and the ride smoothed out much more than prior. You won’t have to add anything else except for what this lift contains but you will need to straighten the steering wheel after you are done. Just point the wheels straight and adjust your drag link til the steering wheel is level. Test drive and repeat as necessary. Other than that I am super pleased with the quality and pricing of this whole system. Total hours to install with out vehicle lift (I have a full set of tools, impact, jack stands, jack, assortment of wooden blocks, wheel chocks and creeper) 4-5 hrs. Other parts installed: Coyote 1.5” wheels spacers (to keep factory wheels) Tera Flex 1.25” body lift (to fully clear 35s)Helpful (1)

Expected 2.5" lift. Measured 1 5/8
I've replaced springs before, so this was no big deal. The instructions were great and the recommendation to use the Jeep and jacks to press in the front bump stop extensions was excellent. I use the measurement of the flat spot on the bottom, behind the front spring to the bottom of the spring perch. Stock is 9 3/8". After install, I measured 11". That's only 1 5/8" lift. I really don't feel like pulling it all apart to add another inch of spacers so I guess this is how I'll let it sit. I already have a rear teraflex 1" rear spacer and the Jeep is nearly level, so I'm not installing the rear springs as it'll be sky high compared to the front. My Wrangler is a 4 door and actually has no front bumper (I have a 40 pound plow frame adapter for the winter). Rear is stock bumper and spare is in the cargo area.Helpful (2)

Great Lift and Great Price
Overall, I am pleased with the teraflex 2.5 lift. I am running 33's with ease and will move up to 35" tires soon. Not to hard to install (watch youTube for help). I paired the lift with 9550 shocks. Probably would have went with Fox 2.0 but they were back ordered forever.Helpful (1)

2.5 inches Lift Kit w/o Shocks on ‘14 JKU
I will rate the shipping and handling fairly, the box has a hole caused by the bracket being wrapped loosely. It might have fell somewhere when it was being shipped. Please do not rely on the manual solely, check out the installation video as well for tips and techniques. Everything went well, however, We had to modify the placement of the front hose brakes and let it hang loose so it can move freely to avoid it snapping when the Jeep moves. Overall, I am happy about the outcome of the build. Thank you Extreme Terrain!Helpful (1)

Great kit, easy install.
This lift kit turned out great. Did it alone but having an extra set of hands would have helped do it faster. Completed the job using a auto lift rack which made it even easier. The video on you tube provided step by step instructions. The only issue I had was the exhaust spacers were not needed. This build is on a 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport.Helpful (7)

Bought a used JK that had 4" Rough Country BB. Replaced it with the TF 2.5" Lift and it is a night and day difference in handling. Already had adjustable front and rear track bars so I didn't see a reason to buy more than the BB lift. Everything went on well and it rides great.Helpful (6)

Thought I had done my research but appears I didn't do enough. I started with a 16 JKU Rubicon had a TeraFlex level kit with Ranch 9000 shocks. I was very happy with the look, ride and performance. I believed everyone on how great this kit was and bought and installed it. Did not really gain anything, actually loss upstroke due to oversize bump stops. These bump stops also bottom out during normal drive over bumps that make the headrest hit you in the back of the head like a mule kick! The brake extension brackets are not good. It looks like they are made to work on different applications and not well on any. The only thing that I was happy with was the rear track bar relocation bracket. Rear bump stops have been removed until I get better ones. Will replace the fronts as well and may go back with the stock springs and spacers. Not happy at all with this kit.Helpful (8)

I have not had the opportunity yet to take this kit off-road to any extreme level other than some dirt roads and rough mud parking lots... but what I can say is that this kit is phenomenal on-road. I Purchased it with the Fox 2.0 Nitrogen shocks which were $875 all together for a total of about $1300 for the entire lift kit all said and done. With the addition of wheel spacers, my Wrangler now handles exponentially better than stock. I am finding my ability to corner and switch lanes on the freeway much faster without feeling body roll or "death wobble" as much as I felt when I had my OEM suspension setup. I would not recommend going higher than 2.5" lift without additional steering / geometry correction modifications as, it still feels good, but I can tell that anything higher will produce a far more unresponsive steering feel. 5-stars overall, 5 stars for "bang for buck", 5-stars on road capability, if I could rate 6 stars for appearance I would. 5-star off-road; Hoping it does just as well over rock crawls as it does in mud ruts and dirt trails.Helpful (6)
Why does it say on the packaging for this kit “JK Lift Kit Notice: If using stock wheels, spacers (#1055000) must be purchased with this kit?” I have a ‘15 JKU Rubicon and was planning to run my stock wheels and tires until I needed new tires to buy aftermarket wheels (with the correct backspacing for larger tires) and larger tires. Will I have a problem installing or operating with this kit with stock Rubicon wheels and tires?
The Teraflex 2.5 in. Lift Kit will not require spacers if using the stock wheels with the stock tire size.
with doing this lift, does it not come w/shocks because some individuals like certain brands or because replacing shocks is not required? I have 2017 JKU Rubicon. Also, would like to go to 35's but keep my factory wheels, will I need spacers? Thanks!
The Teraflex 2.5 in. Lift Kit w/o Shocks does not include shocks so that you can add your own brand preference for shocks. The widest tire you can go on your stock wheels without spacers is around 10" wide, you can go up to an 11-11.5" wide tire with wheel spacers. Standard 35s like a 35x12.50 would require aftermarket wheels that are atleast 9" wide.
Roughly a year ago I bought the Teraflex leveling kit. I used the front pucks but did not use the back because it evened out that rake from the stock/front/winch weighing down the front. If I got the 2.5 inch lift, to keep the front of the jeep and back evenly distributed would I just keep the pucks in the front? Just wondering. Thank you.
Thank you for your question! With this lift kit you do not need to reuse your leveling kit. This lift kit will replace your factory coil springs which will allow your Jeep Wrangler to sit level without the leveling kit.
I keep seeing contradictions in the answers on if this kit has everything that is needed. Are there in fact any other parts that I need to ensure that his kit will perform as designed. I intend on installing 35" tires what is the largest width I can use and will I need wheel spacers. Can I use my stock rims once this kit is installed until I decide on rims and tires
The Teraflex 2.5 in. Lift Kit w/o Shocks will not include shocks, so you will need to add your own shocks with this lift. Additionally depending on your year Wrangler you may need either an exhaust spacer or new front driveshaft. The widest tire you can go on your stock wheels without spacers is around 10" wide, you can go up to an 11-11.5" wide tire with wheel spacers. Standard 35s like a 35x12.50 would require aftermarket wheels that are atleast 9" wide.
I have Fox IFP shocks rated for 0-2 inches. Can I use these on my 2013 10A JKU with the fox socks. If not, are there adapters I can use on the shocks?
With theTeraflex 2.5 in. Lift Kit w/o Shocks you'd want to use shocks rated for 2.5" or purchase shock adapters that allow you to use stock size shocks.
This should not negatively affect the disconnect.
You would want to get an exhaust spacer since this is at least a 2.5".
The axle shifting is to be expected unless an adjustable track bar is used, or a track bar relocation bracket is used appropriate for the lift height. Brake line relocation brackets will give you enough room to achieve full suspension articulation without worrying about damage to the brake lines. Without exhaust spacers, the exhaust can contact the front driveshaft.
The Teraflex 2.5 in. Lift Kit w/o Shocks does not include shock extensions so aftermarket shocks rated for 2.5" of lift will need to be purchased separately. The shock extensions will allow you to reuse your stock shocks.
The Teraflex 2.5 in. Lift Kit w/o Shocks will fit the 07'-18' 4-Door Jeep Wranglers equipped with either manual or automatic transmission.
It would not be necessary as a track bar relocation bracket, and an adjustable track bar effectively do the same thing, in that they both allow for an adjustment in the geometry of your track bar, relative to the lift in question.
This kit has not been tested for fitment on the RHD models.
This lift will only require purchasing new shocks, and for 2012+ models an exhaust spacer kit is needed when having this installed.
No, you wouldn't have any issues if you wanted to use those Fox shocks with this lift kit.
