Which TeraFlex lift kit is best for my Jeep? Why do you offer so many lift kits?

We get these types of questions all the time here at TeraFlex. And the simple answer is:

Well, it depends.

It depends on what you want from your TJ Wrangler or LJ Wrangler Unlimited.

Do you use your Jeep as a commuter or family car? Is it a hardcore weekend warrior? Or is it a dual-purpose rig used for daily driving as well as escaping city life and paved streets? The tire diameter you want to run also dictates what size lift you will need. Cost is also a factor.

All these questions must be taken into consideration when choosing a lift kit.

Bigger isn’t always better. But sometimes bigger is better. And that’s why we offer a variety of suspension systems from mild to wild — and several in between — so our customers can find the configuration for their rig that’s best suited to their needs.

For more than two decades, TeraFlex has been the leader in TJ Jeep Wrangler, and later LJ Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, lift kits and accessories. Over the years our lift kits have grown and evolved into our current product range.

Spacer Lift Kits

TeraFlex builds modest 1” Body Spacer Lift Kits and 2” Performance Spacer Lift Kits for those wanting to run larger tires on their daily drivers that see weekend off-road excursions.

1” Body Lift Kits

For maximum affordability, our 1” Body Lift Kits add just enough height to clear larger tires as well as high-clearance BellyUp Skid Plates without altering the vehicle’s center-of-gravity. Combine the 1” Body Lift Kit with one of our Performance Spacer, Coil Spring, or Suspension System lift kits for additional clearance.

The 1” Body Lift Kit is offered in Aluminum or UHMW (Ultra-High-Molecular-Weight) Polyethylene and includes radiator brackets, a shift linkage plate, and all-new hardware.

2” Performance Spacer Lift Kit — 31” Tires

The TeraFlex 2” Performance Spacer Lift Kit is ideal for mild off-road trails with its ability to fit up to 31” tires. The increased ground clearance improves approach, break-over, and departure angles. Our Performance Spacer Lift Kit offers many of the same benefits as a comparable spring lift kit without altering the factory spring rate or ride. Our 2” Performance Spacer Lift Kit offers the best bang-for-the-buck for lifting your TJ Wrangler or LJ Wrangler Unlimited!

INCLUDES: 2” lift coil spring spacers, front and rear bump stop extensions, and all necessary hardware.

2” Performance Spacer Lift Kit

Coil Spring Lift Kits

For those requiring more performance than our Spacer Lift Kits, we offer budget-friendly basic Coil Spring Lift Kits in 2”, 3”, and 4” heights. Ideal for mild, serious, or extreme trails requiring both increased ground clearance and suspension travel. Coil spring lift kits also include a slightly higher lift in the front to level out the factory rake.

Although coil spring lifts cost more than spacer lifts, the longer coil springs increase suspension travel and provide additional spring rate, which prevents sagging when adding heavy aftermarket equipment such as beefier bumpers, winches, a larger spare tire, and more.

 

 

 

2” Coil Spring Lift Kit — 31” Tires

Our 2” Coil Spring Lift Kit was designed to perform on the highway as well as mild off-road trails. TeraFlex engineers were able to add clearance while maintaining the stock suspension geometry, roll center, and load tuning while riding on 31” tires.

INCLUDES: 2” lift coil springs, rear track bar axle bracket, front and rear bump stop extensions, and all necessary hardware.

Coil Spring Base Lift Kits

3” Coil Spring Base Lift Kit — 33” Tires

The additional ground clearance over a 2” lift clears up to 33” tires. The increased suspension travel will allow you to tackle more serious trails with less worry about getting hung up on taller obstacles.

LCG Long Arm Suspension Systems

TeraFlex LCG (Low Center-of-Gravity) Long Arm Suspension Systems are engineered for hardcore Jeepers who don’t want to give up on-road comfort and control in their TJ Wrangler or LJ Wrangler Unlimited. These complete systems include all necessary components including LCG Long Arm Brackets.

Our adjustable short and long Control Arms balance front caster angle and pinion angles as well as optimize rear pinion angles, anti-squat geometry, and tire position. On 3–5” lifts, LCG Long Arm Brackets and/or 4-Link Rear Axle Truss reposition the frame-end control arm mounting points to relax suspension link angles. This reduces bushing stress during extreme droop as well as shock load transferred through the LCG Long Control Arms.

The Front [High Steer] HD Adjustable Track Bar, Drop Pitman Arm (4”+), and Rear Upper Pro LCG Triangulated 4-Link Control Arms (Pro LCG) or Rear Track Bar Axle Bracket (Enduro LCG) improve steering response, center the axles to optimize vehicle roll center, and reduce body roll to for unsurpassed handling.

This results in improved suspension geometry and relaxed control arm angles for superior ride quality and performance regardless of the terrain. These systems restore front and rear roll axis angles to minimize brake dive and acceleration squat. TeraFlex suspension systems provide reduced noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH).
