Superior Performance On and Off the Road. The Teraflex 2.5 inch Lift Kit with 9550 VSS Shocks is specially designed to add ground clearance and improve your Wrangler's off-road performance on rugged trails.

Superior 9550 VSS Shocks. These performance shocks are specially tuned for this application. This allows the shocks to deliver optimum performance.

Helps A LOT if you have put on heavier bumpers
I had already upgraded the bumpers and installed a winch, so the weight of the vehicle had increased significantly. Because of this, it would 'nose-dive' when braking and roll uncomfortably on the corners. This system eliminated that completely! The one component I would recommend to buy alongside this is a heavier duty steering damper -regardless of tire size. I immediately got an alignment after install, and I'm still on stock wheels but the steering is a little imprecise over bumps so I have a damper on order (~$160).Helpful (0)

Had installed at a shop. Took about 4.5-5 hours. Absolutely amazing ride quality and bang for your buck. Little more expensive than other budget lift kits, but one of the best engineered lift kits. Teraflex is one of the best companies for a lift kit and suspension upgrades. Was thinking of doing a spacer lift kit, but heard nothing but good things about getting new coil springs and shocks. Would absolutely recommend for someone who want to lift their Jeep.Helpful (3)

Very impressed with the Teraflex 2.5" lift. The ride quality on the street has improved over the stock Willys suspension (15K miles). The rear track bar bracket centered the body perfectly. I added RE front control arm correction brackets, handles nice. Running 35" tires on stock wheels with 1.5" spacers. Haven't taken offroad yet...soon, Took a few days to install, but I started in afternoon and had some lawn and household chores to do. Could easily be done in 1 afternoon. I was working by myself on jacksands.Helpful (4)

Wanted to lift our 2016 JK. Didn't want something over the top, so I decided on this 2.5 lift. After watching video I installed this myself. Took my time and everything went smoothly. I then put 2" spacers on. Traded original tires for some 32" Toyo Tires. We are up in age so we wanted a smooth and quiet ride. My wife and I are very pleased with how it turned out. It's like we have a new vehicle to drive. Great products!!Helpful (4)

Been pleased with the lift kit, I’ve had it on for about 2 months now and it’s holding up great. Rides a little more stiff than I was hoping, but I do drive a wrangler so it’s expected. Haven’t done too much wheeling with it yet, so I’ll have to see how it perfoms under pressure. Very happy with Extreme Terrain, easy to order and great customer service. Now to pick out what I want next!Helpful (4)

This is a very well made, complete kit. I have a 2012 JK 2 door and it improved the ride significantly. It is obviously stiffer suspension wise, but the handling improved greatly. I didn’t want something that felt floaty or had a lot of body roll, and this kit did exactly what I wanted it to. I installed it by myself in about 6 hours. Rear track bar bracket is stout, which instills a lot of confidence In the kit. Aesthetically the kit looks great and looks even better on the Jeep! Teraflex did a great job. Unfortunately I have to wait a day to put my 35’s on, so it looks like my Jeep skipped leg day lol.Helpful (24)
In the description it says "This kit will require some cutting and drilling for the proper installation of the brackets". What needs drilled and cut?

If I run 33s will I need wheel spacing? If so how much?
What the largest tire size I can use with this lift kit a using the stock 2017 JK wheels?
The Teraflex 2.5 in. Lift Kit with 9550 VSS Shocks can accommodate up to 35 inch tires. Additionally, aftermarket wheels with 4.5-inch backspace are required. Alternatively, appropriate wheel spacers can be used with the factory wheels.
After installing the lift I put it on the alignment rack. The front caster is out 2.5” on both sides. What can I do to try and bring that into spec
The use of cam bolts or adjustable control arms should help bring your alignment back to spec after installing the Teraflex 2.5 in. Lift Kit with 9550 VSS Shocks.
To run aftermarket wheels with this lift kit what size backspace will I need?
Aftermarket wheels require a 4.5 Inch backspacing.
We recommend a 1.5" wheel spacer when using factory wheels.
Yes, you will need spacers when reusing your stock wheels with theTeraflex 2.5 in. Lift Kit w/ 9550 VSS Shocks kit.
You will not need a new drive shaft with this lift kit.
You may experience some rubbing issues with that wheel.
