Procomp or teraflex

Hello fellow JK owners! I am looking into getting a suspension lift on my new '14 JK. At first I wanted to get a 4 inch lift and then I did some research and found out it would be better for me to get a 2.5 lift for now because of the comfort of the ride and if I wanted to go higher get a body lift later on. I'm torn between these two brands of lifts. I have heard good things and bad things about both but not sure which one to pull toward. Could yall help me out?? Also who has the best price around for a lift? 4wd.com seems to be on top from what Ive seen so far.

Thanks guys!

Welcome. Not many people like Pro Comp and a lot of people like Teraflex, myself included, so TF it is. As for the lift, if you are looking for ride quality on a budget, get a 2.5" budget boost. You won't need control arms with the slight adjustment and you'll get a true 2.5". It's easily resold and you can upgrade to a taller lift later on.

Look at the Vendor List for our sponsoring vendors.

Between those two kits you could just flip a coin.

I'm a happy Teraflex user, so I'd go TF. Lots of those kits running around out there.

Another good alternative fro a true suspension kit is the AEV 2.5". More expensive, but incl's Bilstein shocks and a few more goodies. I put one with front control arm drop backets on a club member's '10 last year and was really impressed with the performance.

For a quality ride I would look into old man emu no load 2" coils paired with their nitro sport shocks, a raised rear track bar bracket, and some JKS quicker disconnects, and a synergy front track bar. Tire size will determine your bump stop requirements.

Knowing what your set up is, along with tire size and what you plan on doing with the jeep and what you are expecting from your jeep will really help people give you a quality answer to your question.

TF over ProComp. But as others have said, there are many options. If Jason can't help you out, let me know, we'll try to get you into something that won't break the bank..

Thanks guys! Sorry I was just posting as soon as I signed up so i havent looked around the site so far. I live in the Central Florida area and was quoted somewhere around $4100 for a 2.5" lift with 35 nittos on 17in rims... Sound reasonable?

That's a bit high. You can get more for the money sourcing your own parts and installing yourself.

That's what I thought too. Im looking to have some comfort to my drive everyday with my JK and also have the ability to take it through most trails that you would come across in the southeastern part of the States. I know that in December I will be heading up 95 to go to TN and plan on stopping in at some trails along the way to Sevierville.

The geo brackets mentioned above are cheap and great for handling. Not for everybody --you do lose some ground clearance.
Let's say you go with the TF 2.5 mentioned but without their shocks. Add a shock like the Rancho 9000 adjustable shock and geometry correction brackets (Rancho/AEV)
All in all you're looking at around $1k.
For the lift/shocks and brackets.
Less for a simple budget boost/spacer lift.
