Looks awesome! Who's lift you running?
Frankenstein lift....Originally RK 2.5" stage 1 with their twin tube long travel shocks, but it only lifted it 1". Now running Roam 2.5" progressive coils, Metalcloak chromally trackbar, RK shocks/rear trackbar relo/RK LCA's, Roam adjustable front upper arms & rear upper/lower arms. It rides super soft with 37s at 26psi and flexes well with RK twin tubes...have 12" travel in front and 13" in rear.(shocks might be too soft bc it bounces around a bit offroad) I may add fox 2.0 monotubes.

Are you running the RK RRD 2.25 shocks? If so you think they’re too soft?

No...mine are the RK RRD twin tube. The RRD 2.25 are montube. I want to get the fox 2.0 for 3-4" lift...but will lose an inch of travel. Here are mine:

Got it, why not try the RRD 2.5 in 3.5”? I’m with you at the Frankenstein lef i’m with you at the Frankenstein suspension.

SS Yeti track bar
SS Yeti drag link
SS Yeti tie rod (Amazing)
Teraflex Alipne IR adjustable control arms, all 8, good quality but overpriced in my opinion..
Falcon 2.2 SS relocated
Mopar Lift, big mistake for my needs.

Now I’m undecided and keep going in circles over which shocks and springs go with next. I’m leaning towards the RK because I’ve heard by others and RK themselves that their 3.5” springs are true to size which I like. Choices are below.

1-RK 3.5” with RRD 2.5 shocks
2- Metal Cloak 3.5” Dual rate with Rocksport shocks
3- Teraflex 3.5” with Falcon SP mono tubes

I've considered the RRD 2.5...I have a friend who paired the fox 2.0's with my coils and said they work well together. The RK RRD's are also pricier and dont look as good in my opinion.

On a side note, rings or no rigs, both are with 37’s. I feel like the rings make them look smaller. Funny story my wife says your tires look huge, what did you do to them? I said nothing sweetie, I just took off the rings and it makes them look bigger. I put the rings back on a said, see they look small again, she said yeah they do :fingerscrossed::whew:thoughts?

On a rubi, I think a 2.5" lift looks proportional with 37s and keeps the center of gravity a little lower which can help offroad and with wind blowing it around on the hwy. To allow a couple more inches of uptravel, I'm prob going to chop the fenders and add the AAL/Quake LED fender kit in the next month.

With a 3.5" lift, I think 37s start to look smaller and you'll be tempted to get 38s or 40s.:CWL:

Thanks bud, I prefer the look of the bead lock rings as well, but I don’t need the hassle of bead locks. I’ve run them in the past and they’re a pain in the ass, in my opinion anyways. Plus these wheels take a ton of weight to balance out and I just don’t see a smooth ride with a true bead lock.

Here’s a few pics of the 37’s at install tonight, I really like the jump from 35 E rated to 37 D rated Ridge Grapplers. To be honest, I don’t really notice much of a difference in performance and handling between the two, and that’s a great surprise!! I have to adjust my headlights ASAP because I was getting flashed by everyone on the way home. Just for kicks I threw in a couple of pictures of my front end, in my opinion it’s a work of art, an expensive art lol. On a side note I really like the Mopar lift, it’s great lift for daily driver/weekend warrior duties but I want a little more capability and height so I decided on the Metal Cloak Dual rate 2.5” with Rocksport shocks. I hear nothing but great things about this lift, anyone running this lift on this thread?

I am running the MC 2.5 Rocksport edition. While I have not had the opportunity to flex it yet, I chose this system based on all the positive reviews on this and other forums. Deciding factors for me where high flex, adjustable control arms and both track bars which allow me to go with 37's for now and only swap out springs down the road if I want to move up to 40's [gearing, ball joints, brakes, etc upgrades aside] I also took MC's and my shop's [Elias 4WD] recommendation to replace the front stock driveshaft with a custom Tom Wood's, which is actually getting installed today. As for onroad manners, this is also my DD so 70mph plus highway driving was important and has not disappointed at all. Rides awesome with Toyo MTs with no wobble or bump stear from MA/NH potholes or bridge expansion joints. I still have some slight steering wander at high speeds which I hope to remedy with either MC or Synergy drag link/tie rod purchase and/or Synergy track bar/sector brace like yours. I just need to confirm the latter will not interfere with the MC setup.
