Not sure who's is best, but both Teraflex and Rubicon Express have a history of quality and GREAT customer support. I really don't think you can go wrong with either.

I'd pick Teraflex only because I have experience with their customer support.

a rubber spacer is a rubber spacer

the only thing you need to worry about is brackets for the relocation of bars

Yes, they are needed--You'll be either changing shocks with your lift which will allow more droop than factory ones, or using shock extensions on your stock shocks which will also allow more droop.

Here's a picture of a Teraflex 2.5" boost with shocks, so you can see all the components:

i thought htat was common sense though?

The main differing in DESIGN is the location of relocation brackets for hte trac bar.

everything else i basically the same. Now Spring lifts are a different story

I think he meant not all kits are the same. There are some kits where it is just spacers; some with spacers and bumpstops; some have spacers, bumpstops and new shocks but Teraflex is one of the few with everything in the kit including the relocation brackets.

I would say it may be close.

I had a POS Full Traction kit and at 4" I ripped a brake line!
