Poly Performance or TeraFlex??

I'm looking at both kits and was wondering what everyone thought about the two, pros and cons. I think that I want to stick to 35's for now but want plenty of room to stuff the tires. The JK is my daily driver so it has to have good pavement manners as well as plenty of flex. So if you all can give me your .02 cents that would be great.

Ok ill start.

They both are vendors here. And they both have great customer service. I say it will come down to what kind of ride you want.
You cant go wrong with any of them. I have friends with Teraflex, it handles as good off road as on highway. easy installation and good instructions. Im pretty sure that Carl will take care of you.
I got some Polyperformance parts and the quality is just outstanding. Stout as they can be. For me they are top notch, no doubt. I myself started saving for when i get ready to do my real lift.

I am more leaned to Polyperformance. Just for the quality and engineering involved on the construction off all their parts. Like i say it will be what u want it to be. If you got the $ go Poly if you are in a budget go Tera.

Not running either company's lifts at the moment. So this is opinion over first-hand experience.

Have some TF quick discos and they're well done.

Personally planning on buying the TF 4" LA kit. Mostly due to the fact that I want to run EVO's coil-over kits and they've fitted their equipment with that setup.

Read some good reviews of PP and don't think you'd be wrong going that direction though.

I'll echo what sn4cktime said and say I'm hopin' to be able to run EVO coil overs at some point in my JK's life. That being said, I'm going to probably go with the TF 4" kit and just start off with front lower/rear upper flexarms right off the bat.

Still haven't decided on 35 or 37's, but with the 4", my options will be open to either.

Good luck. From what I've read you can't go wrong with either.

I run both, sort of LOL. Tera control arms, Poly steering, springs, shocks, etc... All great stuff!

A good buddy of mine runs a 2.5" TF spring kit and loves it, IMO really good stuff.
I don't know anything bout Polly, so I can't say.

the ease of adjustment of the poly arms should be a clear winner

i personally have Clayton's Arms, and love them, definitely the strongest out there, but having to remove them 20 times to adjust pinion and caster has beme goind mad...whereas if i had poly arms it would be much much easier to adjust them

If you are all hung up on our stuff cause of the coil over thing, don't trip. We will have that stuff available at some point. Don't you guys remeber who the OG's of coil over stuff on TJ's were....?

Go check the April 2004 issue of 4 wheel Drive Sport Utility.

The adjuster sleeves we use on our control arms are now available as stand alone units for home fabricators that want the same ease of adjustability on their set ups.

Iíve run a poly lift for 18 months, given it a decent work out and it runs like new. Iíve never read about anyone who regretted putting any of their stuff on their JK. Donít underestimate the ability to tweak their control arm lengths while in-place, it saves a lot of time.

Iíve had people stop me on the trails in Moab after watching how well my suspension works to ask me who made it. Granted some of that is my fox shocks, but itís really the overall package and how will it all works together. It just works.

I have a Teraflex Long Arm with coilovers on my wifes jeep.





I have a Teraflex BB on my jeep.






I have a Teraflex short arm on my old TJ.





No complaints about any of them. I would be unlikely to change. As far as adjusting pinion angle goes, you only do this when you change lift height--not a frequent project.

Bought it for her 4 weeks ago.

13 months old with 1600 miles on it.

He never used it, and it was taking up garage/parking space he needed because both daughters will have their own cars soon. He needed 4 parking spaces, plus room for other toys. He has several other hobbies and family activities that always seemed to push out wheeling. Nicest guy you'll ever meet.

He still has his wife's Unlimited Sahara.

I have moved the WE beadlocks to my 2dr and the Cragars to the 4dr for the softer ride of the load range C tires. More modifications to come.

Yeah, that Jeep was at my house a couple hours after he bought it.

I want to thank all of you that have posted on here it has helped me make my choice. I think that I'm going to go with the 3" Poly kit with 35 KM2's on Allied beadlocks. Does anybody have any pics of that setup or anything close. Thanks again for all of your help.

Poly vs Tera is about like asking manual vs auto or hardtop vs soft.... Both are great and people like each for different reasons. Either way you cant go wrong

I vote for TeraFlex. I love my setup and can't complain about anything after several good trips out to test the gear. Very happy. Good Luck with your choice.

I recently went through this same process and eventually opted for TF based upon specs and word of mouth customer support rep. I opted for a full arm 4" kit w/3" springs w/35s (4" kit gives me the stuff to bump to 37s later on), TF driveshafts and so far a very cool TF Rockguard front bumper. Will definitely go with their rear one, too. TFs' Carl provided great help both here on the Forum and on the phone as I put the system together, and TF's shipping time was unbeatable. Component quality is excellent and the net-net ride & handling is better than stock. It actually factors out at a 4" lift, even with the weight of the bumper & winch.

My only minor gripes were that the instructions could have been a bit more detailed (torque specs., sequencing) and a bit of concern over their brake lines and rear way bar links. However, compared to some of the other mfrs' TJ kits I've put on this one was a breeze.
