I’ve been debating 2.5 vs 3.5 gamechanger lift for months. I thought I had more time to decide as I was thinking I’d pull the trigger on Black Friday sales. Well, the Columbus Day sale from Metalcloak happened and I ordered the 3.5” gamechanger rocksport edition today. Hope the 37’s don’t look too small! I wanted max articulation and was concerned with the 2.5 possibly needing too much bumpstop, plus I’ve got a lot of weight added.

I don't know if you have a Rubicon or not but either way it definitely won't look odd with 37s.

Congrats! I just had mine installed this past Monday! 37s definitely looks good, and not too small. Of course I'm a little biased ..

How is the Metalcloak at dealing with 300+lbs cargo load when wheeling? Dynatrac's bottoms out easily

Still need more trail time, but with 150lbs on light trails it's been awesome. :)

I ran my 3.5" MC with Falcon 2.1 series monotubes with 400+ lbs (RTT, 3 passengers, and a full camping loadout) with no issues. Didn't notice any sagging, and it handled off-camber very well.

Some how I didn’t notice this thread until now. I went the 3.5” lifts with Rock Sport shocks. Ive got about 500 mikes on it so far and love it. It rides really great but I’d like to see how it rides with Falcons or Fox shocks down the road. Here’s a few pics with 37’s and factory wheels. Couldn’t decide which bead locks to go with till now so I’m running spacers. I also went with the American Adventure Light kit and inner fenders.

How much clearance do you have between the rear sway bar end links and your rims? MC recommends 4.5" back spacing. I just ran into that and am rethinking which wheels to buy.
