Just dropped my Jeep off to get my 3.5 Gamechanger lift installed. Can't wait to see it. Did the MC 3.5, Fox 2.5 shocks, Fox ATS steering stabilizer, MC Draglink, tie-rod, and stabilizer relocation. Supposed to pick it up Friday night. Can't wait to see. Then I'll install my Zeon 10-s winch, and White Knuckle sliders.

I know how you’re feeling man. It’s like being a kid the day before Christmas. And you know the drill - pics or it didn’t happen! ;)

I’ll have some up Friday. Can’t do the winch till next weekend, and sliders are still in transit, but I’ve been saving for two years for this lift.

I’m also putting on the MC HD steering kit with relocation. The shop just called and said the Fox 2.0 ATS won’t mount. I haven’t seen it, but I don’t understand why it wouldn’t. Help me out here.

I just picked mine up from cloakworks Tuesday. They installed the game changer 2.5 and fox IFP shocks. I am beyond impressed with the ride. I had no idea a jeep could ride so well. Enjoy

Man, she rides so good now. Tires look a little small though. May have to save up for 37’s, lol. Wallet is a little skinny right now. Super happy though.

I’ve got my fingers crossed. My parts should be in early next week. It’s gonna be interesting to see what a 3.5 GC and 37s do..

It’s made me do a lot of questionable stuff!

They can take you places where you’ll have lots of fun.

I’m sure my confidence level will go up considerably.

Thanks man. Going to do a shakedown test either next weekend or the one after that.

Couple things to look for with those shocks at full flex.... The shock body hitting the frame if you don’t have shock relocation brackets on......

The drive shaft , even though it’s aftermarket will hit the exhaust, not bad but will rub the paint....

Also keep an eye on your brake line, fad wire harness, and locker wire harness. They’ll need to be released from some of their connecting points.

Im sure your shop did an awesome job, no disrespect, this is just a heads up from experience with these shocks. They extend 1/2” longer than the rock sports, and with the GCs flexibility like the RK it’s a different world...........✌
