TERA or RE lift???

Ok need to make a choice...the Teraflex S3T 3" suspension or should I go with the RE 3.5" super-flex kit???? Interested to see what others think because I have heard A LOT of good things about both.

It's a 98 tj and yea moving up to 33's from 31's. It's a daily driver and sees a fair amount of highway driving but I want to be able to hang with everybody else when the weekend comes and we hit the trails.

RE aint so cheap either...you gotta order the shocks too

but I would go RE over TERA if those are the only two you are looking at

if you want to go cheaper go RockKrawler

Yea well I found the super-flex kit on shaffersoffroad.com for $770 which isn't too bad.....guess I should be asking questions about shocks now. Do I need any type of special shocks to go with this kit and what companies should I look to buy from? (I am REALLY new to all of this jeep stuff if you haven't noticed yet)

the mono tube shockes from RE are STIFF!

if you want a nicer ride look into hydro shocks...RE offers a twin tube but its also pricey


DT3000's (Doetsch Tech) are tried and true...some people love them some people hate them...but they work

Rock Krawler has some soft long travel shocks - with internal bump stops...I think they are lik $69 a pair...

I have the RE 3.5 Superflex now with the Bilstein 5100s on my DD and very happy with them. I get some nice flex on the rocks and a good ride on the road.
