  1. MetalCloak 2.5" True Dual vs Dynatrac Enduro 2"

    You will get much more than 2.5". I installed the 2.5 True Dual Rate on my JLU Sahara and measured 4.5 up front, 4" in back. The 2.5" label is for a Rubi. As to the lift, I love it. Great quality, really good ride. I have about 5K miles on it now and 0 complaints.
  2. Jeep Accessories - Any that are NOT made in China?

    It took me 40 years to learn that there is nothing more expensive than a cheap product. Make the effort to buy US. That's a priority for me as of late and it's actually proven more cost effective in the long run.

  4. Witnessed the worst case of "death wobble" I have ever seen...

    I have not had a wobble issue in my JLU Sahara recently lifted with Metalcloak and 35's. However, I've been a long time XJ'r and as such have had many hairy death wobble situations at speeds >65mph. It's terrifying at first, but #1 rule is to not panic. Make small movements, lightly tap brakes...
  5. What wheels and size tires are these?

    I am going to retract my guess and back up @DOOKEY on the Dirty Life
  6. What wheels and size tires are these?

    The Wheels look to be Vision Nemesis which I have on. The tires appear to be Patagnoia M/Ts but I am not so sure of that. look to be 35s.
  7. Rc 2.5 spacer vs 2.5 metal cloak

    I have a JLU Sahara and the MC 2.5 gave me 4.5" up front, 4 in back. That was right after install, there will be some settling, but probably not that much. It's been about a month, I need to remeasure to see what if any settling has occurred.
  8. Does anyone adjust headlights after lift?

    I've had my lift on for about a month now. 2.5" Metalcloak True Dual Rate (amazing), and I have noticed a lot of people flashing their bright's at me as if I have my high beams on. Thinking about it, it makes sense, I gained 4.5" with the lift and another 1.5" from my tires, so the headlights...
  9. Rubicon fuel economy (3.6L manual transmission)?

    JLU Sahara 6-speed manual - 35" tires - 2.5" Lift Current MPG all around is ~16 when naked, closer to 17.5 with top and doors on. I was about 18-19 before tires, lift didn't change much. I use only high-tier gas 87 octane. Disclaimer: I drive like an a-hole, accelerate quickly and am usually...
  10. Uconnect periodically has no sound.

    @Rhinebeck01 is correct. That is the known workaround and works for me. It actually wasn't much of a problem until my xm subscription ran out, even though I rarely used it. Perhaps it's just a coincidence.. perhaps. I've read somewhere here or there that there might be an update which fixes...
  11. Why do JL owners do this?

    I have (had) that glass as well. Be careful dropping that ice in, last week it broke the thin glass around the "pew" piece and the crunchy ice I was chewing on turned out to be pieces of glass. Better than fiber... Ahem

    Yeah after going through gallery, this is 100% JL reskinned with a new engine (optional).

    It does look like a JL ate a Pontiac Aztec and has indigestion.

    I ran across this guy cruising down 465 in Indianapolis on Sunday. Curious about everyone's thoughts on this vehicle? I personally have mixed feelings, it is in someways gorgeous and other times hideous. The features look very fun, I just wonder how it truly preforms, starting at $150,000 it...
  15. Installing a 2.5" lift in my garage myself?

    I just did mine last weekend with a buddy who has done a few suspension at home on cars and trucks, never a jeep lift, and I have pretty good mechanical experience, but none with suspension. Give yourself all day, or better yet a weekend. I did a Metalcloak that was essentially bolt on, which I...
