With your experience, do you recommend getting the MC 3.5 GC lift for the diesel?
I installed the MC 2.5 GC on my diesel the weekend before Xmas. Rocksport shocks. No rub anywhere yet but I did break off the front axle e-locker connector the first day out.

I ended up with ~2.25" lift in front and ~2.75" in rear. Back of Jeep was squatting a little I think on the stock springs with the extra 41 lbs of tire/wheel hanging a little further back thank stock.

I get over 20 inches of wheel travel at the front. Plenty of room for MC front driveshaft with factory cross members. Hoping there will be plenty with Artec's system too.

Thanks for your advice. Cutting the zip ties is critical on the FAD to prevent breaking. Jeep is getting the tailgate support next, then the tires.
