Went to the local dodge dealership and left feeling convinced I could find a better deal on a lift for the 4xe. Found a local place that specializes in aftermarket jeep work and the owner I spoke with recommended I go with this lift anyways since he said it was better than the Mopar lift and half the cost. Does anyone know if this lift will be compatible? The owner of the shop called someone while I was in the store to confirm that the terafelx kit would work and they said yes but I just want to double check before I go ahead and get the work done on Tuesday. If anyone has any advice or suggestions that would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Not a 4Xe or 4Dr but putting my Mopar lift on tomorrow. Yes, lots of lift options out there that are arguably better for less $$. However, Mopar is the only one that complies with ALL FCA warranty stipulations, so Jeep dealers will not have an after-market lift kit component to “blame”. With TerraFlex, Icon or any of the others YOU are taking on that liability. Prices for Jeep dealer installation vary, so check around before you overpay to have your online purchase installed. 4-5 hours shop time with special alignment included was common in my area (even though Lift Kit Manual says 2.2 hrs) and one wanted 7 hrs + $130 to align 🙄. Purchased mine from Mopar Accessory Giant for $1,311 w/ free shipping and it was drop shipped-freighted directly from FCA warehouse in 3 weeks. Your decision of course, but that’s what I did. When the warranty is done, we shall see if else “pops” up 🙂.

Hard to go wrong with the TF setup, solid product and great support.

To NoGas's point - IF you are concerned at all with the warranty support, it may make sense to go Mopar - but it will not out perform a TF build. there are many, many options out there - don't feel compelled to jump on the first one you find.

On my old JK, I optioned the Mopar, TF and Rock Krawler kits - in the end, for me the RK kit was the best bang for the buck - Installed fully in my driveway - dealer never hassled me about it with regard to warranty work. They actually swapped the entire rear end about 3 weeks after install.

Good to know about the warranty! Thank you for the input guys. My main worry was the added weight from the battery pack being able to be supported by the TF kit

Got some feedback from Teraflex, here is what I was told “Unfortunately, we have not finished our testing on the 4xe at this time, so we cannot say what kits will or will not be compatible. We should have more information in the next couple of months.”

I then asked about what the issues were with the testing and here was the response.

“There were issues with the emergency brake lines, shocks, and trying to figure out how to level it out with the heavier equipment.”

Going to talk with the head mechanic at the auto shop here and see if he has any other thoughts.

Good to know they are working on it. The rear end is a lot heavier on a 4xe so obviously will need different springs and maybe rear shocks. I wonder whats different about the ebrake though.

Any updates from Teraflex?
I ended up putting the 2.5” treraflex kit on my 4xe after the owner of the custom jeep shop in Scottsdale called the terafelx owner and gave us the ok. He said the only issue we would run into is if we went higher than the 2.5” lift and we’re doing extreme rock crawling.
The kit has been great for me so far, no issue driving daily and taking on some easy to moderate trails. Mainly just trying to keep the tires connected to the ground. Nothing too extreme

Awesome! I was worried I wouldn’t be able to lift for ages. Not likely to do any ultra extreme rock crawling myself. Just want to be good for overlanding.

Did your installer mention any issues during install? Others had been talking about bar length issues and stuff.

Thanks for responding!

Happy to help!

Only install issues came with the new tire carrier and the back up camera but they were able to fix that pretty easily. Also had to take the jeep into the dealership to get the speedometer recalibrated but that’s pretty standard for the lift/bigger tires. This kit should be more than enough for overlanding

Tire carrier issue makes sense for sure.

Did the dealer charge for the recalibration? I didn’t know they’d do that.
