Let you know this weekend. Still waiting on my new track bar relocation bracket and shock brackets. I got so much more droop then with stock that my shock tubes got dents now. Also put on new metal cloak fenders and had to replace the hood latches. All that comes in tomorrow.

You'll love them...they flex like mad!! I just finished installing my LTSA Lite setup last week, and this thing is FLEXY now. Metalcloak does alot of thing that other people do...only better!

My 3.5" LTSA MC lift gave me 3.5" over the 2.5" Rough Country kit that was already on the Jeep. I don't know how old the RC lift was, bc it was on my Jeep when it became new to me, but the rig had only a total of 49### miles...

You'll love the MC stuff

Just installed mine last weekend... Didn't need an alignment afterward though, as no steering components were swapped. All that it needed was to have the 'steering arm' lengthened in order to straighten out the steering wheel. I can pm you the procedure if you like-

Save the cash for beer unless you also swapped out your tie-rod

Sure, if I don't need to mess with anything but that why not. I will save all the money I can.

Super easy to do... If you just need to change the wheel skip the first several steps.

Manned up and got the safari portion of the trektop on along with my spider web shade. Top needs to stretch a little more to fit perfect but its latched and shouldn't flap.





Happy to have a black top and uppers again.

Did you check toe-in? Or axle centering? Those two things were wayyyy off after I installed my lift.
