The Gamechanger went on yesterday. It will definitely be a Gamechanger! Measurements in the morning were
29-1/2" to front bumper. Now 34-5/8
27-1/2" to rear bumper. Now 30-3/4
That's 5-1/8" in front and 3-1/4" in rear.
Super impressed with ease of installation too. I mean, I did the entire thing myself. 2 food breaks, some reading and admiration thrown in- 9-1/2 he's. Off to get alignment this morning and have everything all double checked by my front end ace and kill any bugs and off for a test run tomorrow on Miller Jeep Trail in Gorman, CA.

Back from complete alignment and setting new control arms with computer. Took it for a test drive up on the freeway. Can't say enough. I think it drives better than stock. The way the 6 pak shocks work in both directions while the center chambers seem to allow a smooth floating feeling over the bumps. Can't wait to hit the last black diamond trail I was on prior to lift. Gotta say, if a lift is in your future, o strongly recommend Metalcloak!

You gained 3” in rear and 5” in the front? Why would you want to be so high in the front?

It actually sets level now. Talking to Metalcloak today they build the leveling in. They also charge the shocks up to handle the weight of steel bumpers, winches, rock rails, skids etc. Super happy!

I bet, the kit looks complete, and all that zinc sure looks nice.

Awesome. You plan on running 37's or larger? Fill up some of that wheel gap?

Gonna run these out and go with 35's next time around. If I want to try 37's I will after that. I have taken it on black diamond trails with no lift and 33's and done fantastic. This extra ground clearance in center was my main need.

You still fit in the garage? Looks killer. I'm getting this when it cools off.

Looks so nice! That's the same lift and shocks we want to get down the line. Expensive but it looks so amazingly designed :D

We're going to hit up Miller Jeep Trail too once we pick up our JL in the near future here. Never been out there before but looks fun!
