JEEP LIFE AND THE GREAT OUTDOORS
"Not all those who wander are lost"
Generally speaking most of us will probably not be going with a long arm lift kit. The average person will lift their Jeep somewhere in between the 2.5 to 3.5 inch range and TeraFlex has some really great short arm lifts that are perfect for the masses.
What about the person that wants the ultimate off-road vehicle though. The person that needs more travel, wants a smoother ride and is certain that they are willing to go all in on building a Jeep that can go anywhere and do just about anything? Well, for that person a TeraFlex Long Flex Arm Kit is exactly what he or she is looking for.
On one Jeep we have a 3.5 inch short arm kit with the 8 Alpine Arms, which I absolutely love. On the other, well...we jumped into the deep end of the pool by upgrading our 4 inch short arm to the long arm kit with new Alpine Arms.
The process was very educational. Geeking out on it all taught me how the geometry of everything working together properly makes all the difference in the world in performance. It's so much more than just moving a bracket and installing a longer arm. We'll save the mathematics for another time though. Let's talk practical here...what will the upgrade actually do and is it worth it??
The over simplified definition is this...by allowing the wheels to freely move underneath your jeep you can drive over bigger obstacles, through bigger dips, ride safely at crazier angles and have an overall smoother ride. That is 100% all true. In fact I was surprised at how noticeably better the ride was and when I watched the TeraFlex Long Flex Arm Kit in action from outside of the vehicle I was amazed even more. It was so cool to watch the Jeep flow through all those big obstacles so smoothly.
TeraFlex is a brand that has built a small empire on learning the Jeep Wrangler inside and out and then developing aftermarket upgrades built specifically for it. Their products are a step above the pack in quality and performance and their suspension kits are world renowned. With a company full of Jeepers, they just seem to get it and that means by sticking with TeraFlex you can have the peace of mind that you are getting the best for your Jeep.
Now, There are a few things I feel like I need to say before you rush off and order your new TeraFlex Long Flex Arm Kit. Remember, these are simply my opinions, always do your homework and make the best choice for you.
