2012, 6" Teraflex LCG w/ 37s Critque

So we're getting rid of our 2011 to get a new 2012 4 door rubicon.

The reason is because we want the new engine.

Old Jeep:



With that said...

Our intention for the 2012 Rubicon is going to be similar to the old jeep.

We will be buying the Elite LCG JK 6" Long Arm Suspension System by Teraflex and will be running 37" General Tires with 4.5" wheels.

We will also be getting the front and rear drive shafts with Fox shocks.

The question is:

What else would you buy at the same time with this suspension package to compliment the way it drives?

I remember installing our current 4" Long arm kit to realize it didn't come with a flip kit or anything like that and it ended up costing a few more dollars and our time to receive the additional parts and it was inconvenient, to say the least.

This is a DD and we will be using it for camping maybe once every few months.

Thanks in advance.

Since LCG stands for Low Center of Gravity, can you really still call the 6" kit that?

Are you doing anything in terms of gearing? Beef up the front axle...

yeah. 538s and strengthening the axle will be addressed.

Is there a specific reason you don't want to modify the fenders? I would say the positives of staying with a shorter lift outweigh the cons on aftermarket fenders.

If you do decide to stay at 6", you might want to consider a PR44 in front to address the pinion angle/caster issue. We are hearing about more transfer case failures do to driveshaft angles and it would be best to start it right from the beginning.

Aside from that, it looks like their 6" kit comes with a flipped drag link as well as their trackbar bracket and brace setup, so you should be covered for steering, unless you want to go with hydro-assist, which is mainly personal preference.

Here's mine with 37" MTR's and a 4" LA with the stock flares. You'll have alot of space with the 6" kit.

One of our guys has a JK running 35's on a 4" LCG kit, and there's definitely room to spare with the 35's. A 6" lifted JK is a TALL beasty....
and by the way, good choice on tires. I'm running the General's too...

Just like axsys recommended, PR44 to correct your caster and pinion angle.
You may want to reconsider those 5.38 gears with 37's! (2012)
With an auto I'm turning 2750 rpm's with 4.56 325/75/17 (35in) @ 70 mph
These 12's do not require gear like the 11's and down...
I spend a lot of time @ 70 mph, I may stick a set of 4.10's in mine.
I would say 4.88 max with 37's

Here's mine on a Teraflex 3" LCG longarm system on 37" tires. 6" is alot for 37" tires. You could run 40" or even 42" on 6" of lift.

Too much lift, them calling it lcg is laughable unless they intend on you running 42's with it.

Skip the PR axle and get a TeraFlex JK 44 axle instead. Also keep in mind that you will need to replace the front driveshaft also.

The Teraflex 44 is a few hundred cheaper. You have to get the PR44 Unlimited which costs more than a standard PR44, to get the caster correction you need. The Teraflex 44 comes with that at no extra charge.

Teraflex 44

The Dynatrac can be had elsewhere for cheaper than qtec I'm sure, and I'd bet vendors will give better than Teraflex's list price on the Tera44, putting it under the $2k mark. I'm planning on a CRD 60 in the rear and a Tear 44 up front.

4" lift would be perfect for 37s and room to grow.

Here is 5.5 springs and 1.25bl on 37s with flats and without flats.

sent you a PM with another recommendation. But for the axle, don't forget to include regear, axle sleeves, C-Gussets, possibly truss it, etc. depending on what you do with the current axles or what comes with the upgraded axles if you buy them. Strengthen the axle is highly recommended as everyone has said!

I run a 4" with 3/4" spacer in front and metal cut for 40's, I think 37's and a 4" is about right and your CG will be better for wheelin. That's why I went 4", for lower CG. (see my album)

2010 JKUR, 4" Pro C., 3/4" f Daystar spacer, 5.38's, EVO sleeve/gusset/custom trussed, Rear Ten Factory axle shafts, 1.5" wheel spacers, Pro C. 17 x 9 wheels, 38 x 14.50 x 17 MTR's, SuperChip FP, no fenders, B&M Tranny cooler, Magnaflow, Fr./ Rr. frame hacked off, HD Balls
