Thanks for posting all of the info regarding the new measurements. I'm getting the same lift and will also be running 37s. Assuming that you park it in a garage? If so, how is the fit through the garage door opening? Really tight?
I have a standard garage door and it fits perfect, still room for a short roof rack. I also have a Tundra with a 6" lift and that sits taller.
Ground to highpoint of hardtop: +/- 78"

Make sure you get the front track bar bracket when they install. I had to call TeraFlex and they sent it separate, easy install.

So I got a call from my local shop saying that Teraflex sent them one of the first 3.5" lifts as a beta. I got it installed and it is absolutely awesome! True 3.5 inches, with 37's it raised the jeep almost 6". Teraflex really thought everything through and the shop says it is far superior to the Mopar lift. Teraflex is also coming out with a 4.5" lift but I don't see a need for it unless you want to run 40's.

Great looking build! I just ordered a 2021 model with the diesel. Planning to do the same lift/tire/wheel combo. This helps a lot. Thanks!

I just did their 3.5" lift on my new Ecodiesel with the Alpine IR control arms added and 37's on the black rhino wheels, I also added a 1 inch spacer in the front to make up for the weight of the diesel

Bad ass! Do they recommend the spacer? Haven't heard of that before. Did you get it from Teraflex too?

yes because the motor is so much heavier, it sags and looks weird

Good to know! Will add that to my list. I just ordered the Black Rhino Primm wheels and the 37" Nitto Trail Grapplers from Custom Offsets. Hoping to get the Jeep and all the add-ons in within the next 6-8 weeks.

Wow, that feels like a century ago. I can't believe how much mine has sagged due to the weight of the bumpers, spare tire, and all the extra weight I've added.

Looks amazing! Looking into this exact build actually (3.5" TF 37" tires). Did you need new control arms, track bars, or driveshaft?

haha dude nice!!! its a gorgeous jeep man great job on the build
Thanks! Not quite done yet, still waiting for shocks and steering components (tie rod and drag link). Running 2" extenders on the factory shocks right now so I've got to take it easy on the trails. Will post some pics when it's all finished.
