I included two images of the finished product and two of my Jeep on the lift with the project underway (one with the kit installed but stock wheel and tire). More to come... Sven

Thanks for the pictures @Sven. The 3.5" Geo-Lift & 38" tire combo looks great. Next-up, the highly anticipated Maximus-3 JL Tire Carrier.
Can't wait to see what the future holds. Be well and Jeep on!

In just over three weeks Maximus-3 we will be proving the JL Geo Lift on the trails of Moab, UT. We are excited and beyond confident in the off-road capabilities of the JL Geo-Lift Kit.

Stay tuned because we will be sharing tons of great content from the 2019 Easter Jeep Safari.
Nice! I can't wait to see how it does!

Sven - how are you liking those Falcon shocks?

Sven - how are you liking those Falcon shocks?
Pretty positive on the Falcons so far. I've kept a pretty good eye on then. I "dress" the wheel wells every other week or so and get in there with a little Toolbox Buddy and a towel. I haven't seen any leaks, and while they're only 3 1/2 months old, no corrosion anywhere (unlike my Baja Design LP6 brackets which already started to corrode a little).

I keep them on the harshest setting around town and softest on the trail. I might start running in setting 2 around town. Our roads here in MN are a little rough this spring and while I don't really notice when I'm on my own, I find myself feeling sorry for my passengers when I have them and when I'm driving on the harshest setting around town.

In retrospect...

My JL is not a dedicated trail rig. I rode with several JKs, TJs and a YJ at Moab which were much more severe builds than my JL, and I loved watching those drivers and their Jeeps tackle obstacles. It was so much fun watching a new buddy of mine in his "built" YJ (he confided in me that his long travel kit with KING shocks set him back $20K). I followed his lines more often than not and after a while I got more comfortable picking up on what he was seeing and I was able to pick my own lines. Here's my point. After I got used to picking my own lines, it dawned on me how ridiculously good my JL was in a "point and shoot" scenario while the drivers in the built rigs around me seemed to be working way harder than I was. I am not a 25 year veteran driver. I'm relatively new at this, yet the M3 Geolift and Falcon shocks (plus the Patagonias) made me look way better than I deserved.

Very nice Sven. The rig looks great and sounds like it handles the trails smoothly.
The Falcons are definitely well made.

Maximus-3 is proud to introduce our upcoming JL premium full geometry correction lift system, named the Maximus-3 JL Geo-Lift System. Current phase: on vehicle testing

Basic Intro: Countless hours of engineering went into designing a JL lift system with optimal geometry, superb ride quality, and off-road performance. Basically adding height while improving both on/off road drive-ability.

A few features:
* Correct front & rear track bar angles
* Correct caster angle
* High steer kit with SteerSmarts Yeti XD flipped Draglink
* High positioned steering stabilizer

We paid attention to every detail and innovated a full suspension system that provides the added lift at an arguably better ride quality than OE. That’s what makes Maximus-3 a step above the rest!
Very interested just have two questions:

What RTI scores have you seen with your lift? I remember you were going to get on an RTI ramp at EJS? Just curious how it compares to stock and other lifts.

Also, I don't see a 2.5" version on your site. I believe that is still in the works? If not, can the 3.5" lift be used with springs and shocks for a 2.5" lift or would that throw off the geometry correction aspects of the lift?

Thanks in advance!

Hi @alphalife9,
We have yet to gain access to an RTI ramp, but the Geo-Lift has performed beyond expectations in real-life off road trails.
The Maximus-3 Geo-Lift has conquered many of Moab's challenging trails with ease. The added flex and enhanced capabilities are far beyond stock and on par with the competition. Plus we can confidently say our on-road drive-ability is incredibly smooth and greatly surpasses the competition.

The 2.5" Geo Lift is in process of being uploaded to our website, but it's ready to ship now. Our 2.5" uses different brackets specifically designed for that lift only. The 3.5" & 4.5" brackets are not to be used for 2.5" coils/shocks.

I will be happy to send you more information and pricing on any of our Geo-Lift Kits. Thanks!!
Maximus-3

Absolutely, please send me more info and pricing on the 2.5" setup.

I appreciate your help.

Hi,
do you maybe have a list of parts for your 2.5" lift kit?
I'm wondering about the high steer kit. I assume it won't work with the 2.5".
Also, on one of your first pictures in this thread I noticed factory-looking front swaybar endlinks. Aren't they too short for anything above 1" of lift?
I am asking because I've seen 3-4" lifts with SS Top mount Draglink hitting the swaybar arms or the frame on moderate articulations. How did you solve this problem, if I may ask?

Thanks!
