Looks good. Where did you get the tires from? Who sells them. Does it hit 8th gear on the highway?Here she is with the 37s and the new wheels:
We need to figure out how we're going to mount the spare tire right now but haven't been a whole lot of thought in considering I've been working. Need to give the Jeep a full test drive too with the new wheels/tires to see how she feels. The 37s do look really good and I'm happy with the choice. I'm sure my MPG is gonna tank and stuff but oh well, it's a jeep! ha
We recalibrated with the taser lite to adjust for the spedo issues. It will hit 8th gear but not very often. It mainly sits in 6th or 7th gear.Looks good. Where did you get the tires from? Who sells them. Does it hit 8th gear on the highway?
The Jeep looks great, I know we have some big fans of yellow over here!! We really love the 37 or 38" tire paired with the 3.5" and have been running that since the lift was installed. We have drove to Moab from Northern California and the fuel mileage is way better than in the JK with the new 8 speed transmission! Plus with the Rubicon you have a way easier time running 37s with the wider axle, you can use a wheel with 4.5" of backspace and be good to go. Here is ours with 38s, it does have our Overland Fenders which open them up a little bit compared to yours.
We ran the stock tires with the Metalcloak lift for a few days. There was rubbing when you fully turned the vehicle. When we wanted to upgrade to 37s, I was told the stock rims wouldn't hold the 37s. The spacing is different. I imagine if you use spacers you could do it. By that time, I just took the opportunity to select some different wheels that I knew would work 100%.nice build, I have a 2019 JLUR in Hella yella on order, I am currently looking at a couple different lifts, I want to go 37's but stay with the stock rims, do you know with the metal cloak 3.5 lift could you have used the stock rims with no spacers? Did you have to change the front driveline?
By the picture it looks like you use the original drive shaft with the Metalcloak 3.5" lift? Did you have any issues with the driveshaft touching the exhaust pipe?Installed the Metalcloak skid plates today and added a photo of the rear dif cover from yesterdays project. We still have to install the steering stabilizer relocation bracket and a rear dif skid cover but ran out of time forgot it gets dark at 3pm now lol!
Hi. No issues with the driveshaft yet. If we do end up rubbing and messing it up we’ll replace it. I didn’t want to shelve our to cost when we got the lift and tires though because it was already a lot of money.By the picture it looks like you use the original drive shaft with the Metalcloak 3.5" lift?

Our Vector mount doesn't rattle or anything while in use. I tightened everything down pretty well minus the two screws because I was afraid I was going to strip them that secure to the center console thing.Has there been any rattling from yours? Mine does on washboard type ruts. I believe it's the hard plastic shims? that slide into the aluminum frame.. not sure how to resolve
