Nice lineup of parts so far. The undercover skids are great! I agree with everyone else, you will like the novak. You will like it better if you have to use your stock linkage for a while first. LOL.. Have fun!

I mentioned this before, but with the metalcloaks, a 1" BL, and 33s, you don't need much lift, if any. Check out Toberste's build thread (I can't link it on the app), you can see his TJ with stock suspension, 1" BL and 35s. If you really want some lift, I would go with 2" AT MOST, and a full set of quality adjustable control arms. BDS or OME both have low lift springs. But there's plenty of good info on here about that, I'm sure you'll figure it out Just my .02....

I have been looking at ome springs don't think I have ever heard a bad thing about them but springs and disco's are a given but for best up and down travel I'm saying. Four new control arms are coming as well eventually, but what else is limiting down/up travel?

Have some good news, the mc fenders are on. And I have a few pics. Took the front sway bar off as well not a bad ride at all. Much smoother over bumps and braking and turning isnt bad at all just have to remember your driving a jeep... Weathers been super crapy and cold here so I haven't had to much time to work on it. Painted the hard top black and I took the spare of I think it looks cool
