Got my 3.5" Gamechanger with Rocksports installed last Friday. Took it on a 550 km (340 mile) highway run. It did well, until I hit the head wind coming back home. I have a slight pull to the left, and the steering wheel is angled left. I'll get that fixed in a week or so.

Haven't had a chance to take her off-roading yet. Winter and all. Will do a bit mid-March, I think.

Running with 37" Milestar Patagonias. Wanted the 38s, but I'd be too far out from the fender and get into trouble.

Nice. I like how cool and relaxed you look in the after picture. Before, you’re all rigid and upright. After, you’re like “yeah, I’m just chilling here with my lifted Jeep”. :rock:

Everything is connected and complete. Indexed properly. Axles centered. Drives great. Almost one inch lean passenger. Puzzling!

So I been I torn between Mc 312.5x for my jl or stage 4 Evo coilover suspension, any thoughts ?
Seriously though, what kind of wheeling do you do? What's your goal? Hard to say without some idea what you want to do. I'm sure we can all help you spend your money though. :like::beer:

The MC GC flexes great with a very attractive price point for the features. The evo stage 4 isn’t really a fair comparison. You’re talking 2500 vs 8k or so. If I was spending 8k, there’s no way I’d go mid arm coilover over a long arm system unless you like the flashyness of the coilovers.

RK has a great long arm system out too.

Doh , for a sec I thought you meant RC LOL. I did look into MC. They don't have a long arm for jl that I can find only a mid arm
I love my Metalcloak lift, but I daily drive my Jeep and as such I try to keep from doing stupid things. I've never had the coilover setup with bumps, but I'd bet they would be awesome if you are going faster... My stock JL out performed my 4.5" long arm lifted LJ though. I'll go more places now on the MC mid-arm lift than I did on the long arm Jeep.

My .02. :dunno:
