Unfortunately I need to add some lift to the deal as I can pay it off. I know if I put the lift I will have more capability to do some more challenging rock climbing.
    I got a 2.5 lift that at the start gave me almost 3.5 in of lift in less then a year, the springs started to flatten out. I was at about 2 inches of lift. The lift is only a year and a half old. They are also really common for breaks. I now run rancho 9000 shocks and am switching in EVO plush ride springs.
    I personally would look at rancho sport lifts or EVOs lift.

    Don't lose horsepower? He said the CAI and AFE power- exhaust- mach force xp will add 3%-7% back to my horsepower....
    Its tricky, I don't want to get a crappy lift, Im hearing different opinions.

    Most sales people are either greedy or ignorant. These guys may honestly believe that Teraflex is top of the line. Why don't you read through this thread and then relook at your decision: https://wayalife.com/showthread.php/...isolated-cases .

    As far as warranty, many members here have had Teraflex parts break, then the company blames the consumer.

    As far as cai and exhaust, you will not see the gains (if any) unless you're on a dyno, and even if there is a gain, it's very minor and not worth the money IMO. We've even seen members here that have purchased a Mopar cai, and when their engine was dusted, the warranty did not cover it.

    If you're determined to get a lift, you could go with a 4" Mopar lift.
    If the dealership installs it, then it will be covered under warranty.

    If you go with larger tires, be sure to re-gear.

    Here's a shot of the wife's 2016 Hardrock JKUR with 4" Mopar lift on 37" Falken Wildpeak MTs.

    The only chopping was a 1 1/4" trim of the rear of the Rubicon sliders. Cut them straight, and put the end caps right back on.

    Dear god...

    Don’t buy a Terrorflex lift.
    Don’t finance your aftermarket parts.
    Certainly don’t finance anything Terroflex.

    Why can’t your jeep be a daily driver?

    Listen to your wife.

    Don't buy 2017/18 JK?

    I am new to Jeeps so my comment may not apply.
    I always heard and read to never buy a car during first or second year of production and wait for reliability or driver reports. I bought a Rubicon Recon on October, did I make a mistake? My thought process was that a JK has been out for 10 years and everyone seem to love it (I do too!!)
    First I heard the JL has run/stop engine, no key and a lot more electronics and due to that I decided not to wait and bought the JK.

    I personally believe you made a great decision!
    The JL will be nice but the JK Recon is no slouch.

    I agree and personally would wait for awhile before purchasing a JL. That being said, I understand the excitement and hope they are all good for the people that do get them. I got burned once with a first model year vehicle and will never do that again!

    To the OP. I think you made a good decision to stick with a proven design that has all the bugs worked out. Follow up with a couple more of those good decisions! We all get the excitement and wanting it all at once. You’ve been given some real solid advice. I hope you take it.

About us
“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.
