    I like the JL products Metalcloak has on their website. Anyone have any experience with them?

    Just installed one of their 3.5 kits on my buddies sport. If you haven’t installed a lift before I suggest getting someone who has or bring to a shop as their instructions are terrible lol
    Looks and rides nice but a 3.5” kit netted him almost 5.5” of lift.

    Wow! That is incredible! I am looking at their GC 2.5” lift. And yes, I won’t be installing it myself. I guess I will wait to see what other experiences I can learn from. Thanks for your reply! Cheers

    They make quality stuff. I have the 2.5 Game Changer Rocksport edition and their rear diff skid. Good stuff, great ride quality. I would buy it again.

    Let us know how it goes. Particularly just how much of a lift you actually achieve. Cheers!

    I had an installer put on an MC 3.5 and it really came out great! I couldn't be happier with it. I don't know what the net lift is with the MC 3.5 and the 35in tires and the lift but its pretty damn tall:)

    Can you get a measurement to the tallest point? I'm thinking of doing the same, but want to make sure it can fit in the garage.

    Looking @ the same kit for mine. I’m too much of a cheap ass to pay the shop to do it lol. I plan to knock it out myself. The shops I priced the lift at want $1300 for labor to install. Plus when I do the work myself I gain better knowledge on how to fix it when it breaks. Now I just need to decide on wheels!

    I have their belly skid system and their 3.5" game-changer lift kit.

    All are top notch. Love the gold components, as they tend to Zinc everything.

    If I had access to all the tools and a decent lift (and someone who knows what they are doing) I'd love to do the install myself. I have the kit sitting in my garage and debating if 2.5 or 3.5 is the right height.

    No, that's the stock rear. The front drive shaft is the one that needs to be upgraded if you have over 29" of travel or something rather.

    I do have their front drive shaft. It technically isn't theirs, though. They get them from a Sacramento company.
