Review & Installation 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.

5 Top Rated Questions

I have read that this lift will actually increase the ride height over 2.5" .. what is the accuracy of these statements

  • The Teraflex 2.5 in. Lift Kit is designed to provide an average lift of 2.5" above the OEM ride height. There are several factors that can cause this to change the hight of lift you see: 1) OEM springs will sag, lowering the ride height, however, lifts are based on ride height as it rolled off the assembly line, so a 2.5" lift on a jeep that has sagged 1/2" will increase the height 3" over what it sits at now due to sag. 2) Bumper weight and added accessories. Most lift kits are designed to expect some aftermarket bumpers, or accessories such as winches, jack mounts, grill guards or any other equipment. If the jeep is stock or using stock or lightweight bumpers, it will sit higher than with heavier steel bumpers. Because of these factors and other smaller factors, the advertised lift amount is an average, or guideline, and not a concrete amount you may see. Depending on your particular Jeep and Jeep build, you may see more than the advertised 2.5" of lift

will i or should i get a steering stabalizer along with this?

  • This Teraflex 2.5 in. Lift Kit w/ Shocks would not come with a steering stabilizer and one would not be needed for this install. However, if you do plan on running bigger tires like 35s a steering stabilizer will help.

  • Yes, there is a suggest tool list for the Teraflex 2.5 in. Lift Kit w/ Shocks found on the install guide page - https://lib.extremeterrain.com/guides/J17416_Guide.pdf.

Roughly how far off will my tire center be without an adj track bar? I plan to get a tb just can’t afford it along with the lift immediately and I’m very ocd lol. Thank you

  • Every Jeep reacts differently to being lifted, so it would be hard to say for sure how offcenter the Jeep may be in the front without an adjustable front track bar. With the Teraflex 2.5 in. Lift Kit w/ Shocks it should be minimal, since you can reuse the factory front track bar during reinstall.

Helpful (0)

Are Trac bar relocate brackets needed when installing both, front and rear adjustable Trac bars?

  • At 2.5" you should be able to reuse the front track bar and just relocate the rear track bar, which is why only a rear track bar relocation bracket is included with the Teraflex 2.5 in. Lift Kit.

    Perfect for my 07 2 dr. Jk

    This lift gave me 3” lift in front and 2.5 in the rear. I’ve had it installed for 2 weeks now and I’m very happy with the ride and the stance. Front axle was off center about 3/4 of an inch so I ordered the monster front track bar. Centered axle no problem and I feel that it is needed but not a have to. Took me and my son right at 7 hrs with jack stands and 2 hydrolic jacks. No problems. I love the ride and ready for my bumpers now. Shipped to my door in 6 days from order to delivery.

    Great product. Lifted and leveled the Jeep to where I wanted it, and the performance is much better than stock. The instructions were vague, if there at all, in a few spots hence the 4 stars. Luckily it wasn't my buddies first lift so we finished it within an afternoon. Recommended.

    No complaints!

    I took my time on this install since I was finding small issues to fix as I was moving everything around. I did it over my two days off, but would say it was a total of 8 hours. I did it with two jack stands and a jack. I was a little nervous about how much room I’d have to drop the front axle to install the springs, but I didn’t have any issues. The height is just what I wanted. I like the way it handles and shocks haven’t done me wrong yet.

    What a difference.

    Well, I waited long enough to lift my 2012 JK. This kit is as advertised. Comes with everything you would need minus the loctite or anti-sieze if you chosse to use them like I did. Install was pretty straight-forward. Youtube is a big help. I must have watched the Havoc Offroad vid about a dozen times before attempting. Took me about 5 hours cause I took my time and did it alone. Biggest pain was getting the front bump stop in and front passenger spring. Teraflex would do well to get rid of the raised embossed logo on the bump stops. The spring kept catching on them as I tried to twist them in. Ended up shaving them off with a utility knife. It was just a weird angle to get things in place. I did not need spring clamps since I dropped the axle far enough and lifted one side at a time; though it would have made things easier I suppose. Passenger shock upper mount required me to cut some of the plastic from the inner fender to get my wrench in, but those are getting upgraded soon anyway. All in all, very pleased.

    It rides so smooth compared to stock with my 33s in. It gives it a nice stance but in my opinion, i wish i would've gone bigger. It's a very small noticeable change in height.

    Home Garage Installation

    Overall I really like the Lift 100 rides better than stock. It leveled out the jeep and gave me around 2 inches of lift (I do have a heavy bumper and winch). The installation was fun but took three days. I was however, only using hand tools, jacks and jack stands, and was doing the lift by myself in a poorly lit, wet, cold, garage in late December. A few things to note: When you attach the U bolt for the trackbar relocation bracket make sure you're using the fine thread 1/2" nuts. The kit has a coarse nut for the bolt, and two fine thread for the U bolt (when I attached the track bar I used the lower hole). Also, make sure you have an open ended 19mm wrench for swaybars. If you're doing this on the ground I recommend using two jacks when lowering the front axle, its makes things easier. Get enough cinder blocks for the jack stands you have, you might need them. If I had another 6" of jack up the frame, it would have been so much easier to install the front springs.

    good ride

    installed on 2011 sport. Major upgrade in ride. Lift amount was 2.5-3 inches. Much smoother ride, firmer feels more responsive due to less suspension bouncing. Handles corners fine with no increase in body roll. Quality components. good packaging. levels out jeep perfectly. laid level on door sill and it was dead on level. It will probably be a little higher in the summer when the hardtop is replaced with the soft top.
