What's the highest quality leveling kit for a Wrangler JK?

I bought a 2016 Wrangler Sport 4 weeks ago and want to add a leveling kit, but I don't want anything junky. Which is the best one?

Level or Lift? Nobody I know levels a Wrangler. A budget boost is just that - cheap not high quality to say the least. What is your end goal/intended purpose for your Jeep?

I don't want a budget boost. I want to add a leveling kit that puts 2" to the front and 1" to the rear and makes the vehicle level. I can then go with 33" diameter tires, which is all I need. I'm really not interested in a lift.

So you want a 2" lift spring in front and a 1" lift spring in rear? I don't know of a kit kike that. You may have to piece something together.

Not a lift spring, either. One of them is right here:

Re: What's the highest quality leveling kit for a Wrangler JK?

I've got no experience with the kit you posted, but I do have experience with TeraFlex products. I ran quite a few on my TJ and XJ...they make solid stuff. I wouldn't hesitate to buy a Tera kit. Hope that helps.

I've also had very good luck with Old Man Emu, (an ARB brand) in the past. It doesn't appear that they offer a leveling kit though.

Re: What's the highest quality leveling kit for a Wrangler JK?

I had the AEV "leveling" kit on my 2010 Unlimited. If I recall correctly it was 2" in the front and 1" in the rear. Had 30,000 miles on it with no issue. It might be expensive for what you get, but I liked it quality and installation - installed by myself in the garage in one evening.

I'd buy it again.

Not a good idea to cheap out on your suspension.
You'll end up regretting it later.

Re: What's the highest quality leveling kit for a Wrangler JK?

Whichever you end up installing, PLEASE post before and afters. After looking at some photos of "leveled" JK's, I may be putting one of these on my wishlist down the road. I don't need or want a full on "lift" either. This looks like just enough to get an extra inch or so of tire while keeping a factory ride quality.

I have 2 pictures of my old Jeep with the AEV kit and 295/70/17 (large 33") just need to find a way to host them.

Call it what you want, it's still a lift spring or spacers.
