I'm running one of these. If I'm not mistaken it has 28 clicks of adjustment. All the way out is soft, and all the way in is hard. Set it at 16 clicks from all the way out/in which will put you in the center of it's range. I like it here, but you may find the steering too heavy/soft at this point. Adjust from this center position to suit yourself, a few clicks make an amazing difference in steering feel, but don't use it to mask problems caused by other things, if the jeep drives good with no wobble or bump-steer when the adjuster is at full out/soft then you are good to center the adjustment as explained above and go from there.

PARKER! How've you been? Haven't seen any update on your installs, or pics of your updated rig? Hope life is treating you well!

How do you like the steering stabilizer? I have a 2.5 AEV lift on my jeep and I am considering this down the road. My jeep handles well, just every now an then there is a little slop in the steering. Hoping this will tighten it up a bit. It drives straight as an arrow, so it's not the alignment. .

Doing well BadDog, just been really busy. Sorry about not getting back to you on the PM. When I get the chance I'll take some pics, the only thing left is deciding on some LED lighting.

I love the ATS stabilizer on mine. If you like light steering then dial it back, but if you want a firm resistance at the wheel then just turn in a few clicks. It's a great tool for dialing in steering resistance and feel.

Hey Parker, glad you mentioned the ATS Fox stabilizer. I am looking hard at the MOPAR/Teraflex 3" Stage, and I think this would complete it. I am also looking at lighting, skids, wheels/35's, and even front axle gusset/tube when going to the 35's. It looks like I may be back in Marietta with the Jeep in January and perhaps we can try that lunch meet again.

@PJM86...after two days with the ATS I'm liking the results. If you have any sloppiness or loose feeling in your steering this will help. It also seems to help with body roll into turns. Still working on dialing it in but so far so good.

I don't have the OEM paint code, however I have used Sunrise red. A few of us have already painted items to match. This was the closest.

Lunch sounds good anytime FAP.

So far I have no complaints with the Teraflex short arm pre-runner system. This is basically the same thing as the Mopar stage 3. The only difference is that I have 8 adjustable control arms rather than the fixed ones. Personally I'd just assume use the fixed ones in the stage 3 kit. Once they are adjusted at install and alignment you never touch the adjustables again, so why pay extra over the fixed ones in the Mopar kit. The adjustables are pretty to look at, but hind sight is 20/20.

If you go with tubes and gussets everything is an easy fit. I went with the Artec truss kits on front and rear. This necessitated a little finesse and fab work.

I had to relocate the front limiting strap mounts due to the truss being in the way of their designed lower mount. I also had to order a set of JKS quick disco stabilizer links for the front bar. The truss kit relocates the lower mount points, so neither the factory links nor the ones supplied by Teraflex were the right length. I also had to do a little fab work to mount the steering stabilizer due to the fact I used the higher trac-bar mount from Artec which is welded in place of the factory one. This presented some clearance issues when mounting the stabilizer, but a few spacers turned on a lathe along with some slight clearancing on a few steel components cured the issues.

The one thing I wish I had done was to relocate the rear spring perches. Once assembled the rear coils wanted to bow out toward the rear. The right side coils was making contact with the rear trac-bar. I didn't want to pull the rear again to cut and weld the perches since I had already re-painted it from welding the truss and Artec raised trac-bar mount, so I just used some spring wedges to cure the problem. Also after installing the winch plate, winch, tow brake system and tow-bar base plate my front end settled about 1inch. I installed teraflex 1" spacers and all is level now.

Thanks for the detailed info Parker. I feel better about the Stage 3. I may just gusset the front axle and be done with it. I saw some of the Artec line as part of the many, many modifications made on a 10A build from a custom shop out of Kerrsville, Tx. Awesome. I'm looking for lights as well. I do like the 50" E series Rigid, and the D2 Dually mini's (who wouldn't). Have you done skids? I may just go with the complete River Raider system, including Evap, but am still researching aluminum. You have a bulletproof rig, must be planning on towing to Baha for vacation, eh!

My dream suspension setup right now is the Mopar Stage III, teraflex monster track bars, and Fox ATS SS. May even add the rear speed bumps as they simply bolt on with no drilling or cutting. Problem is its about 3K for just those parts with another 2K for wheels and tires. I can go Rancho 3" with wheels and tires for what just the lift parts will cost me.

The debate rages. Do it right the first time and wait potentially a year or so or do it now and go Rancho with plans to upgrade down the road.

Go for what you want, even if it means you have to wait a bit. Stick to your dream setup!

Yep, me too Doc. I definitely will do the ATS with the Stage 3. I have been shopping around and I found the Stage 3 below $2,400 at a dealer in Saint Louis. I having really talked to my Jeep friendly dealer yet, but believe they will match or beat that price. They have told me they will honor any warranty work IF they install a Mopar lift, and I will ask for that in writing. I am looking at maybe the 305 KM2's, just under 34", and I like the Rugged Ridge black satin wheel in 17x9, or a Pintler.

I'm also looking at black pintlers with 285/75r17 Toyota open country at2 that are 34"/11.5", we will likely end up with pretty similar rigs.

I'm working on getting the kit employee priced which is around 1800, I would then shop for a dealer that will warranty that work

I haven't installed any extra skids yet until I see the need. I did build a mount for a 2.5 gal. air tank under the jeep which helps protect and reinforce the evap skid. The tank is mounted just ahead of the evap between the resonator and driveshaft, while the ARB twin compressor is mounted under the passenger seat and quick disconnects at front and rear. Looking at the Rigid 50" with PS mounts as well as a 10 or 20 on the bumper. Just got to save a little coin for the lights, my daughter started college this year and it's a sizeable financial responsibility which comes first.

As stated above, save for what you want! The Teraflex/Mopar stage 3 is a quality kit through and through with excellent shocks and ride quality. The rear speedbumps are in the kit, they just hve a different appearance. The rear speedbumps which look like an aluminum can are for 4" or greater lift due to clearance issues. The ones in rear for 2.5 to 3.5 lifts have a very different appearance which is similar to a standard rubber bumpstop, but they work very well.

One question I have for those that have installed the speed bumps: is it reversible? Is that spring bucket/perch replaceable after the fact. It looks welded onto the frame so it looks to me like once the bump stop mount is cut it's destined to have speedbumps forever without the skill of a talented welder.

All this lift talk from some of my favorite classic 10A buddies, guess I ought to share what's pending on my end. Have a MetalCloak GameChanger Lite ordered, and will have a set of Synergy Axle Sleeves, Gussets, and LCA skids going on at the same time. Haven't finalized treads, but 35" Kevlar MTRs are leading. Wheels I'm vacillating on a set of Fuels I like and a couple of different bead locks. Can't decide if the extra spend is worth it.

I did go with the River Raider steel skid set (+Evap) and they are well made and have already proven their worth. The install is a challenge, but the result is solid. As close as I am to their shop, I probably sold have just had them do the install, but my stubbornness got the best of me. PSC Bombshell diff covers will round out the armor.

I also have a 50" Black Box Logistics LED ready with PSC mounts, and am still deciding on a set of floods for A-pillar install.

So, the work continues, and the Jeep keeps draining, but I keep having fun and smiling!

You will love the Metalcloak lift. It rides superb and the cornering is impressive (for a jeep).

Are you going with the 2.5" or 3.5" lift?

Sounds like ya have some great plans for your 10A. I may just do a road trip and have RR do the install on skids. Rausch Creek is quite the skid test platform, eh! Ya know, wheel choice may be the hardest decision of them all. I'm sure we'll meet up sometime at either Rausch or perhaps at the River Raiders shop.
