Which lift?

I've been looking at lift kits. Out of the two which is a better kit? Both are 2.5" kits.

Rough Country 2.5" Suspension Lift w/ coil springs. $329.95 (Roughcountry.com)

TeraFlex 2.5" Budget boost with shocks. $495.99 (Quadratec.com)

WHICH IS BETTER???

Are you keeping your factory wheels or changing to something with less backspace? Are you going to 4-wheel your Jeep or is this just for looks?

Teraflex! I have had the 2.5 coil lift from Teraflex for 3 years on 2 Jeeps and put a total of 40,000 miles on the kit and couldnt be happier. I have run this set up from stock tires to 35 km2 to 37 Toyos. The other items I bought to better the kit was a Monster track bar and JKS disconnects.

Def. Teraflex. I have heard things about the RC sagging after your first off road trip. Yes, it is a full lift (coils and such) but Teraflex is much better. Though you will loose flex since it is just a budget boost, but you already have the nice shocks so when you get bored one day you can buy front and rear coils (~$300) and then totally upgrade the set...

Just my 2 cents. Hope it helps man!

2008 JKU, ProComps, 35 Kevlar MT/R's, Dana 44s, locked, 5.13, Artic Trusses, RCVs, all types of OR-Fab stuff, PIAA's, 2.5in Suspension lift, Adams driveshaft, Teraflex SpeedBumps, Warn Winch and some other goodies...

Between those two, there is no question it's Teraflex.

My Rough Country springs sagged in the rear so bad it was within 1/2" of sitting on the bumpstops.

If the 2.5 is what you are looking for, check out Rock Krawler's as well.

Yeah, another vote for Teraflex. Very good quality products. RC may be also but I don't have any experience with them. They don't seem to have the rep that Tera has.

Between the two I'd say neither and save up for a more complete coil lift. I'd look into the rock krawler stock mod.
