Yeah I am def on the light side right now and can feel it in the wind. Skids and bumpers still to come and will be interesting to see how much it drops. guessing 1/2"
The MC ends up getting a little costly as the seemingly unspoken word is that you absolutely end up wanting to do the tie rods and drag link at the same time. Pushes the cost up another $800 or so.
Sounds like you are all set, but if you end up being interested in seeing and possibly test driving an MC 2.5 on 37s, let me know as I am in San Jose as well and just did mine.
That would be cool to get a Hollister trip together or something for those of us in the bay and maybe a regular meetup. I’ve been looking for one since relocating from Oregon!I got mine installed at Metalcloak themselves last year, now running 37s on the 3.5" GC lift. Went back again yesterday to have my uncle's JT installed there as well, also 3.5" GC. I was also looking at AEV in the beginning, but settled on getting the GC as they were local to California (in Rancho Cordova) and has a lot of good feedback from others. The ride definitely is a bit stiffer than stock due to the rocksports, but tradeoff for having excellent articulation. It'll also soften up a bit once I add my rack and roof top tent on it. BTW I have the same color as you! Good selection! I'm also in the bay, Newark. We should all meet up one day!
7/10 from me.Hi Ashton,
How's the long term review of lift?
thanks for the honest response. I will be getting steersmarts adj front track bar for lift.7/10 from me.
The quality of the parts that are there are great and I'm happy with the end result but I think this lift demands a new front track bar at a minimum, front and rear for perfectionists to recenter the axles. I also had fitment issues with the rear track bar tower that required my trusty BFH. All in all I'd say the install and incomplete kit are the reason for me to ding it to 7. The end product for ride quality is great for me. But I also have a lot of extra weight between the gobi rack, steel front bumper, winch, rock sliders, etc. it'd be a rough ride on a Wrangler running less additional weight.
