    I wouldn't know as I would never sticker my Jeep. Well unless Dynatrac 60s were involved
    That being said, to say everything they make is garbage isn't accurate unless you have used everything they make.... That being said, I wouldn't buy those Falcon shocks, IMO, they look like crap. I don't know how they perform and I don't care. I used there hinged tire carrier version 2 on my JK and loved it.
    Any of you guys thought of going Longarm? I really like how Evos shoves all the brackets up in the frame.

    I'd prefer to run shocks made by a shock manufacturer not a company who markets lifts. IE...King, Fox, Rancho, etc. There is a reason you don't see stand alone "EVO" shocks. King already did it and EVO just specs valving to fit the vehicle you want them on. Also Dynatrac uses specially valved Fox shocks. See the pattern here. Pair a quality lift with quality shocks. Teraflex is good at marketing and selling products.

    Kings cost more but are fully rebuild able and made in USA.

    Garbage was you word of choice, but we can work with that. I've seen and heard enough of TF that I wouldn't spend my hard earned $ on them. Jesse hit it on the head with his comments as well. King, Fox, Rancho and more make good/great shocks. I don't need to take a chance on new and unproven products from a marketing company

    I'm in agreement on the shocks for sure but I know people who run there arms that like them and have no issues at all.
    For me, I won't buy products that are obscure for my jeep....id rather spend a little more to get something proven like King for example when it comes to shocks.
    But back to the thread....

    Has anyone tried Curries arms? They are Jonny joints. Is it hard to set up lifts when you use springs from one company and arms from another?

    Currie arms are great. Teraflex arms are NOT!

    And it's ok to use different companies springs/arms. Lots of people do. I'm running an EVO LA kit with Currie springs in the rear and my old Rock Krawler springs in the front, paired with the King 2.5 shocks.

    I just watched Eddie's video review of the Rancho lift on a trail and I have to admit, those springs stuffed nicely. I might just have to give them a whirl. Worst case I buy some different springs and sell off the Ranchos. Although from the looks of it they'll be just fine as long as on road is ok.

    Thanks,
    Chris

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.
