So, I just came from the Jeep shop where I'm getting a Metalcloak 3.5" game changer on my JLUR. The guys at the garage believe I might be the first one (one of the first ones in the country) with it per Metalcloak's comment. Anyways, here are couple pictures; I haven't had a chance to go off roading yet or even drive it yet. I'm waiting on my 37 Coopers STT and rims to come back from the powder coat guy.

I should have the Jeep back by Wednesday.

I'm 5'8" if that helps with the next picture.

I wouldn't say you're the first. A guy in the issues forum has the death wobble already with this lift installed.

You got a link...so I can read up on it.

Doesn't look like he did the complete game changer lift. He is still running the stock shocks on it; not the 6 pack version. Unless he changed them back out in trying to find the issue.

Or he is running the Rocksport addition which is a little different from the one I installed.

6 pack version - https://www.metalcloak.com/JL-Wrangler-3-5-Suspension-Lift-Kit-6Pak-p/7630.htm

Those wheels look awesome with that color
Thanks! I think so as well. I almost gave up on them as they were backordered forever. I guess because they are 17's vs 20's. but for offloading id rather have more rubber with the 17's! I am however Glad i waited on these wheels. they are pretty badass and match the coloring scheme well..

Have had mine on since Begining of June. 3.5 w/ sixpacks
Why did you guys go with the six pack shocks? From what I've read about them, they leak and need to be rebuilt often.

I haven't seen much on the leaking outside of needing to top them off once a year. I'll google it but if you have some links I would like to read up on it.
