Having run their lifts in the past and seen all the breaks that I have, I can't say that I'm a fan of TeraFlex. That being said, your Jeep looks good and I'm glad that you're happy with what you've got.

I have to concur. Teraflex may not be for me, but your Jeep looks really good. :thumb:

Thier non falcon shocks are like compressing clay and their coils are like sitting on a boulder rolling down a hill. My 2 cents

I had teraflex lift on my Jk and all I can say it was better than the rough country lift kit the Jeep came with!! I never had and problems with it on or off the trail. On the jl I will most likely be going with evo,undecided as of now!!

Kinda been my experience as well. I ran their control arms too and constantly blew out bushings.

Having run both TeraFlex and Rough Country, yeah, I could see you saying that it was better. But, better is far from being "good".

...better is far from being "good".

Well said. I'm going to add that to my lexicon, or put it on fortune cookie. Depends on what my weekend is like.

Hey guys sorry to pounce on this one. My JL is on order and as Iím researching lifts I was actually looking at metal cloak game changer with Teraflex falcon. This is the first time Iíve read negative about it. Can those who have had them, can you offer more input as why or why not. Also any input into a better lift and shock.....

Clearly you havenít done very good research if you havenít found anything bad about either company.

Apparently not. (sad dumb face)Forgive my ignorance. Iíve been running an old school LJ and havenít had the doe to upgrade into a JK/JL until recently. Iím not looking for a slam session, rather honest feedback on what I should be looking at purchasing. I get opinions are like a holes but I trust feedback from the board here. (Without kissing ass). Any help is appreciated.

I've never had herpes but my research shows that it isn't desirable. Same with Teraflex. There's enough info out there that I don't need to have it to realize that it's not desirable.

In the aftermarket parts world, if you want quality components, you will realize that list is fairly short. Most companies simply make parts that merely FIT a vehicle. A select few companies actually ENGINEER parts FOR the vehicle. Trusted and proven companies like dynatrac, evo, icon, Fox, king, old man emu, and even rancho have proven themselves time and time again to be made with quality components and stand up to abuse while offering quality. This applies to almost all car makes, where youíll find only a select few companies produce quality parts, while other companies just produce parts for the mass market with pep boys quality that have no engineering behind them, and usually, are worse than OEM.

Rampart22 -- Welcome to JL 'wheeling! What model did you order: Rubicon, Sahara or Sport? And what size tire are you interested in running once the Jeep is lifted?

The companies you found are great at marketing and not so great at making quality parts. Thatís the reason you found them. Rancho makes a nice kit, Dynatrac makes a nice kit. Those are the two Iíve personally seen and would run. The evo spacer loft is better than teraflex or metaljoke.

What OverlanderJL said. Great marketing can do wonders at "selling" people on products but time, personal use and experience will teach you what is actually good.

Rampart22 -- Welcome to JL 'wheeling! What model did you order: Rubicon, Sahara or Sport? And what size tire are you interested in running once the Jeep is lifted?

Thanks all for the input. Your welcome to pm me or we can start a new thread. ďJL newbieĒ. Im from SoCal and ordered a 2019 rubicon JLU with stock bumper out of state. With hopes of upgrading to 37ís. Iím currently running 35ís on my LJ rubicon with ďgaspĒ and dare I say a 5.5 long arm rubicon express lift. Itís done great but way to top heavy at full flex. Because of that Iíd like to go no higher then 37ís with a 3.5 lift. Iíll be driving it as well so Iím looking for a balance.

Welcome to the jl world Rampart22. Cloak game changer is a fancy way of saying they zinc coated a turd. Their six pack shocks are barely good enough to be used as a wheel chock (I tried). Iím talking about their shocks because its crap like their marketing and products.

Yesterday, I ordered the Rancho 2Ē lift with rs9000xl shocks. I might cancel it and go with the Dynatrac lift.
