I am looking to install the lift kit on my 2013 JKU Sahara. I am new at offroading, but enjoy trails and moderate rock climbing, nothing too extreme since it is my family vehicle and the family often goes with me, and I don't trailer it so it must get me home. I don't mind going through some shallow water, but I don't foresee myself doing too much mudding.
I know I am changing the original post with this question but what are your thoughts of maybe only going 2.5" for now but with a better brand, such as Teraflex or Rock Krawler? It won't be as much of a lift and has fewer components, but I should still be able to run 35s and it seems virtually everyone is happy with these brands. It also sounds like the shocks are a major factor as well, so that being said if Teraflex is an option they offer a kit which includes shocks but are they worth anything or am I better to consider the kit without them and install a different brand shock?
As I said in the OP, I have been comparing so many different brands, kits, etc. it is difficult to be sure there is a "right" choice. I am going to have to bite the bullet and make a decision here, I just don't want to feel like I am throwing darts with a blindfold.
