Metalcloak 2.5" with Rocksport shocks. 37" Patagonia M/T's. And it is amazing on and off-road

So far i have no complaints with the Pat’s but I haven’t had them all that long. Will see how the perform after a little more wear and abuse off-road.

Stock and 37" K02. Scratched and scraped skid plates and inner fender liners but nothing that can be counted as important. I also haven't rolled over

Dynatrac 2" lift supplemented with Yeti steering linkages and front track bar with relocated Fox ts stabilizer, Yeti front sway bar links, Synergy rear track bar, and all 8 Synergy control arms.

Originally thought I'd never go bigger than 35's and didn't want too much height, so I liked the idea of a true 2" with tuned Fox shocks for the springs.

But plans have changed, im now sitting on 38x13.50 Pat's wrapped around 17x9x4.53bs KMC Brutes, all fenders are chopped for AAL goodies (just waiting on their rear liners), and am now contemplating Metalcloak 3.5" springs and shocks for added travel.

The Dynatrac lift has been great. Ride and handling on and off road is sweet. Its just a bit too limiting with this size of tire. I chopped the front fenders when the 35's were still on, but had to immediately chop the rears and remove the bumper fillers after the 38's went on. Also, the front bumper wings had to come off because they contacted the tires at half turn.

OK guess it's time for the Teraflex people to pile on. Here is a Teraflex ST2 2.5 inch installed yesterday. Still has 33's hiding in the dark somewhere... Ordered spare tire relocation bracket this morning. I'll have 35's in a couple weeks.

I stayed low at 2.5”, with 37”s. Flexes great, 10” travel in front, 12” in rear.

I’m going to go up to 3.5” though. I need more uptravel - have just over 3” at ride height until metal to metal contact (bumpstops smashed). It needs more room to breath for large potholes and whoops in the dunes.

Looking at all these metalcloaks just reminded me how broke I am.

Who's 2.5 lift do you have? It looks super low, more like a Dynatrack 2 in or almost even as low as my stock suspended Rubicon on 37s (yeah it rubs, but 2.5 in Metalcloak on the way).
