A ways back this started out with a 4 link Clayton Long Arm Lift kit which is about a 4" lift. I absolutely loved the kit, Clayton builds great stuff. It is all weld on versus some of the bolt on lift products.

That being said, a WHOLE lot has been done to it since then and the Clayton lift kept getting heavily modified (new rear truss, longer arms for the stretch, removed their radius arms to do a true triangulated 4 link, etc.) and now is no longer there at all.

What lift you get depends on how extreme you want to go. Give me some ideas of what type of wheeling you want to do and how much money you're willing to spend (not really a dollar amount, but more of "a little budget", "a typical budget", "what's a budget?") and I can point you to a few lift kits you may way to check out.

It just seemed Asking what lift to put on being his "lift" is entirely custom. Was spam but the thread turned out legit

Cheers

So your the only one I've actually seen running stretch Metalcloak corners. Are there any provisions or good ways to mount a fuel filler neck in a stockish location or say where the stock license plate location is. I've had cloaks for some time now and I am in processes planning my stretch in the next round of upgrades. I want to run a Genright tank so I don't have to run a fuel cell in the back but I havnt seen any application of this sort with their stretch corners. Any good insight or your opinion since your runnin em. Check my build thread or Ober_Time on IG for details on my current setup if you want

You may have missed it on the long build thread write up... however, I originally did exactly what you're referring to. Before I decided to go the fuel cell route, I actually installed the GenRight Alien Crawler Tank and drilled out a 4.5" (or 5.5") hole in the rear below the driver brake light using a hole saw. This allowed for the axle to be pushed back and still have lots of room, kept the tank in the stock location, and still looked very clean.

Hope that helps, but let me know if you have any more questions.

Here are some pics:

If you'd like to check out what I did with my Cloaks and stretch please check out my build. I'm also planning to use the Alien tank and appreciate those photos! It's hard to find any photos of those tanks out in the wild!

Last time I was wheeling at Dixie Run, I busted the welds on the lower control arm bung and it caused the whole arm to fail... thus pivoting the axle pinion straight up to the sky.

Additions / Removals:
- Added 7075 Aluminum lower links from Wide Open Design.
- Replaced the flange / u-joint on the rear driveshaft which cracked when the axle pivoted.
- Added Savvy rear tailgate armor and some led license plate lights.
- Removed the JL Audio sub and amp from the rear along with the Alpine headunit.
- Added a bluetooth Alpine headunit and wired it directly to two front Kicker speakers.

Three known issues with jeep:
1) Driver front axle seal is bad and leaking fluid.
2) The front coilover hoops need to be redone... as the mounts for the c/o were welded to the side of the hoop which is putting a lot of strain on them. The hoops need to be raised and the mounts placed downward so that the forces are directed straight into the hoop itself.
3) The rear axle tubes seem to be slightly bent, as I think each tire slightly leans inward. So at some point, I will have the axle re-tubed with much thicker and stronger tubing.

Kind of what I was thinking.

Makes me worried about the axles now, especially on my heavier rig. Hopefully going for an end-to-end type truss will help the issue.

Yeah, I'm definitely not going easy on her... in fact, I'm starting to push it to the point where I know I'm going to be rolling soon... but at least I'll know her limits then.

I was surprised that the tubes bent, but when I talked to Wide Open Designs, they said that a good 60% of the wheelers out there are bent and people don't even realize it..... it's extremely common. I'm guessing it was a combination of the following that caused it:
1) When I strap the jeep onto the trailer, I wrap a chain around each end of both axles and ratchet them down. I can see this causing a lot of strain on the tubes. I'm thinking of welding anchor points onto my frame instead.
2) The truss wasn't as heavy duty as I hoped it would be.... it really needs to be full end to end with lots of gussets the entire way.
3) I have been REALLY hard on it, especially when doing ECORS. It has seen lots of jumps, 5' free falls, hard rock hits, etc.

My bet is that truss. Seems there are some bends and it's width is on the shorter side
