    New Teraflex 1.5” lift for Renegade

    I was looking on the Teraflex website and see that they now have a lift for the Renegade. It looks like a well thought out kit. Has anyone else on here seen it? I had been looking at getting the Daystar kit but now this is probably gonna be my choice.

    Looks alright but I don’t trust teraflex as far as I can throw it into the garbage pile. I would still get the daystar kit imo

    I wouldn’t trust the quality of Teraflex. See these threads. There are photos of broken Teraflex parts, that shouldn’t have broken.

    Three, and now four people are telling you, don’t. Spend so time looking at all the TerrorFlex broken parts issues. TF makes excellent advertisement videos, but that’s where the effort stops. Go with the Daystar kit.

    I would cover myself in chocolate syrup and lay in a fire ant pile before I would run a TerrorFlex lift on anything I own.

    My brothers will be getting Daystar, or Dobinsons if they release a BU suspension system.

    Teraflex 1.5" Lifted Renegade TH

    I installed the Teraflex 1.5" lift on my 16 TH without any real issues and so far so good from what I can tell. I was able to align the front camber and toe but not the caster. I probably just have to clock the struts some more. However, since caster isn't going to ruin my tires I probable won't go through the butt pain of clocking them again. As for the rear, camber and toe are good as well. I had to pull the top of the rear struts further outward then the instruction say to do initially when installing them in order to get the camber in specs. But that is a none issue since the instruction later say that what I did may be required in order to set the camber. Furthermore, nothing about the kit seems flimsy or easily breakable. I would recommend this kit to a friend. One more of thing of note; I went with Teraflix because after days of reading how Daystar and ATP kits fail a proper alignment regardless of what the companies claim, I simply didn't want the headache. Teraflix will actual align if you follow the installation instructions.

    Just remember, the instructions do not say to remove the gas tank skid plates. Do yourself a favor and remove them - 3 bolts for each plate. You'll save yourself a headache trying to install the trailing arm brackets.

“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
