Budget boost

Putting a budget boost on. What's better teraflex 2.5" lift or rubicon express. Also do I have to change the Shocks? I have 2012 rubicon JK

I had the 2.5 Teraflex with 35 inch tires on my 2012 JKUR; I have the 2.0 Rubicon Express with 35 inch tires on my 2013 JKR. I wish I had that extra half inch on my JKR; the tires barely fit --but I have no rubbing.

Cool thanks dude . Did you have to change the shocks or were you able to leave the stock ones on?

Oh, one other thing, the R.E. costs about 60% the price of the TeraFlex.

I didn't have to replace the shocks. The stock Rubicon shocks work great. You need to get extensions, though.

I bought the R.E. at 4X4GroupBuy for $200, was in stock and took two days to get; the TeraFlex was over $300 and had to be shipped directly from the manufacturer, which took about two weeks.

The brackets are the extensions.

Sweet thanks dude I'll check out the 4x4groupbuy. They were both 260 on the other. But 200 is a sick price
