Metal Cloak Overline with 35's on 3" lift TJ

Going for the LCOG build once I get a TJ since it will also be my DD. Would a 3 inch lift look alright with this setup or should I look into a smaller lift? I've looked on search but couldn't find exactly what I was looking for.

35's will look fine with a 3" lift. You can go bigger, but the proportion will be fine. If you wanted to, you could go down to a 2" lift and have a nice, effective, wheeler.

I am sure many of our customers out there with that sort of set-up will post there pics for you. But feel free to PM me or email me at matson (at) metalcloak.com if you have any questions.

Thats what i'm planning on running for a while. Later on I plan on adding a lift but i'm not sure if a 2 inch or 3 inch would be better for my purposes. Just trying to plan everything out before I dive into getting a jeep .

Surely someone has this setup, or at least something close.

You think about running a 2" old man emu lift. People seem to like it and that with a body lift would give u plenty of flex with 35. Its probably way ill go, iv got the fenders but there not on the jeep yet.

Thanks Filthy-Beast.

With everyone liking the OME kits, that sounds like a good route to take. I might do that too. But to keep the cost down a little, I might try the BDS 2" lift. Then again, everyone seems to like the 3 inch zone lift haha. So many options to choose from. Please post pictures when you get done.

The OME are nice, however my rig is heavy to begin with and then the load varies greatly. So I changed from OME to variable rate AEV springs.

How are the AEV springs holding up with the weight? Everything I have read about the and the tech specs on them seems like they would do really well maintaing height with the weight. Supposedly they ride pretty good too. What shocks are you running with yours? I am thinking about running Bilsteins 5100 series. I would definitely be interested to hear what you have to say about the springs.

Not sure about beast but I am running 3" AEVs as well and love em. I dont have the rake that I used to with the Pro Comps and the road manners/comfort is noticeably better. I am running them with the Pro Comp MX-6 adj shocks left from the 4" lift.
