Both companies have good products. You wouldn't go wrong with either.

Rock Krawler makes a quality product. Talk to Absolute Offroad in Phx.

I don't know if you can beat Rock Krawler solid arms and their special joints....

I have only had my RK on for about 3 weeks. I'm still waiting for my wheels/tires. I can say the install was pretty straight forward, RK was great to deal with, and so far it drives great on the stock tires/wheels.

I have the Rock Krawler 5.5 Triple Threat on my Jeep now. Im limited by my Teraflex shocks at the moment and waiting on Jeremy to get the new shocks done. What I can tell you is that Im sure Teraflex makes a great product. Ive seen them in action and Ive even installed them. HOWEVER my Rock Krawler lift was the most complete well thought out heavy duty lift Ive ever seen. Its extremely tough and has some bad ass flex to put it mildly. Im certainly not going to down Teraflex but Im going to tell you based on what I do know. You can not beat the quality, durability and function of the Rock Kralwer lift!! As soon as I get my Jeep out of the paint shop Im going to start a Rock Krawler thread so people can see just how much I love it! And Im not just saying that! I can not wait to get the new Rock Krawler shocks and see what it will really do!!

ON 40's

A cheesy video of my wife driving...only her second time. She walks right thru it with the Rock Krawler lift and 40's! Look, Jerely wont do you wrong. Hit him up and at least talk to him. You will be glad you did.

Rock Krawler 5.5" X Factor Plus Coil Over Long Arm + Heavy Duty Tie Rod, Drag Link, and Bilstein Coil-Overs at all 4 corners











ill get some action shots later this week.

rides great on the highway. though we will be adjusting it a bit more this week. just some fine tuning for the drive back to kansas from moab.
its super flexy, comfortable on the road, and easy to maintain. strong parts and a great warranty.

im on board with rooster RK lift is F'n Sweet. everything he said is correct. i started with RK because too many kool-aid drinkers on the other site went with TF and others. RK didnt get much attention at the time. since i started posting pics of my build ive seen more and more RK lifts around. search around the JKO and youll find more happy RK owners!!

I've had my RK suspension for a few months now. I am really impressed with the overall quality and the ride. On the road it just floats over bumps. And crazy flexy when wheeling.

I put on the RK 3.5 mid arm flex and am quite happy with it. Does everything you can ask of it and rides great on road. Used Bilstein 5100's as per RK suggestions. Crappy pictures but you get the point.

  1. '10 Rubicon Unlimited
  2. Rock Krawler 3.5 Mid Arm Flex/Bilstein 5100's
  3. Rough Country SS

And SOLD on this lift right there. Only thing I might tweak is the coil-over mount so I can run a secondary bypass shock with the coil-over. Other than that though, I can see that it does have about the same flex as the ORE cantilever, so just saved myself about 5 grand there.

I'm still shoppin around but I strongly considering RK. Its pretty much down to either RK or TF so Rooster, I'll be lookin for your RK thread.

You can't go wrong with Rock Krawler, Customer service is top notch. I beat the [email protected] out of my kit and I have yet to break any of their stuff.

I have the RK 3.5" setup with front and rear LCA's, and rear uppers (highly recommended!), and a few other bits. While I would recommend another company's extended brake lines (mandatory for the rear), the rest of their gear is un-breakable. Also, Jeremy is a stand-up guy. The company stands behind, and beats the hell out of, their gear. Nothing but good things to say about them- Mark W.

Back in a '94 YJ! Well, after I sink $$$$ into it...
