Just to be clear, the RK X-Factor without shocks is $2168. The Metalcloak Gamechanger WITH shocks is $2299. Those are comparable kits although the Metalcloak gives you both track bars. At this point there are very few shocks available for the JL and even fewer spec'd to handle the RK X-Factor kit. I'm an RK fan and run them on my JK, just trying to make sure that the info provided is useful.

I like MC’s videos...very interesting for a jeep-noob like myself. Curious why jeep wouldn’t go with a dual rate in their kit?

The Mopar kit is substandard as far as I'm concerned. It is simply designed to give dealers a way to make more money. Coil spring bow?... come on folks. The Mopar kit doesn't come with adjustable Track Bars either... a show stopper in my book.

Wish I had the skills...but I have a local shop (authorized MC dealer) who does installs and has done many MC setups, that's his speciality...so I'll pay him the big bucks to knock it out.

At least you’ll have the comfort of knowing it’ll be done right. :blush: Fortunately I have other jeep friends with the skill, tools, and desire to help me do a lot of stuff. It’s a huge money saver. And I am sure to return the favor (at least in terms of free labor as an extra set of hands).
