What length did you get? I see they have 2.5-3.5 and 4.5–6 lift but no mention on actual length. I know with metal cloak the sway bar is supposed to be angled up more than stock a few degrees for more droop.
I went with the shorter ones, but I might have to double back and get the longer ones. That pic was before I started making tweaks and adjustments. The links are now extended to their max, but the flex of the 3.5" Gamechanger is no joke. Also in that pic, I had the lower shock bracket along with the upper. WAAYYY too much droop! I ditched the lower brackets and now only have the uppers in the front. Heres a pic taken a minute ago. I have them extended to the point where there is only the diameter of the studs length worth of threads in the main body. I'm thinking that the longer set could remain fully collapsed, while not limiting droop.

Drove by my local Ford dealer, and had to do a U-turn to check out two Bronco Sport's parked in front of the dealer. Wasn't even worth getting out of our Rubi, or worth taking a picture. What a couple of sh$tboxes... Small, cartoonish, and no bigger than a Rav 4. Holy crap.., I hope the other models are more impressive. Was hoping for some pressure on Jeep to pick up the game, but the Sport models aren't going to do it. Guess that is what happens when you share the Ranger platform....

- Installed the H3R 2.5L Halguard fire extinguisher with Warn mount .. prettiest fire extinguisher I have seen

Just installed the H3R Performance HG250 HalGuard Fire Extinguisher in my JLU. Couldn't decide whether to go RED or BLACK, with RED of course being easier to find in an emergency but BLACK just looking badass with Sting-Gray and Black interior of my Willys. Went BLACK, using HGR NB300 mount and CoolTech bracket. Couldn't be happier with the whole package. And love working with H3R, a great company that really takes care of its customers.

Thanks for the reply! Yeah I had a evo lift before and this one seems higher as you can tell by the sway bar angle. Also gained a few inches of up travel which is usable with the bumps.

I’ll have to contact rk and see what the length collapsed/extended are on them.

That’s cool, I went with Chrome, looks good to me.
I might get the smaller one too and mount it to the front passenger seat.

Painted my antenna black. Looks much better than the silver/chrome one.

what did you use to paint, cut mine also
Just picked this up from Walmart yesterday. I did the semi gloss to match the black bolts and sliders.

Oracle Sidetracks installed... fishing wire through the passenger side grommet was not fun at all.

I am happy with the product though!
That is pretty cool. Nice work!

Installed my Voswitch yesterday, took my time & the install went pretty swell.

I’ll never have to have another wire going through my firewall again & hopefully it will last a while.

the unit has to sense a load on the relay to actually work.
it doesn’t tell you this in the directions.
The cool thing is it makes it a snap to add any other accessories 👍🏼

I went through the side cowl, then windshield channel (tilted windshield down) and got into the cab super easy. Surprised I don't see more folks using this route.

About the 5 minute mark on this video..

Great stuff, your way is probably better, and my post is likely more of me worrying about my method over anything else...

Stay well.

Installed Evo ProTek engine/trans skid plate on the JLU. Installation was pretty simple even from the garage floor. It helped to have two sets of hands.
