The springs are very nice and I like that this kit seemed to focus on extreme rock crawling and on road comfort. I commute 90 miles a day on LA freeways, so this was of utmost importance to me.

I also heard that a 3" lift kit could sometimes net around 5" of lift. I didn't want to go this high because I'm not ready to upgrade driveshafts yet. I went with the exhaust spacer kit for now.

I haven't trimmed my wheel housing in the rear yet because very soon I will be buying the rest of the control arms that recenter the rear axle in the wheel opening.
You have a link to the 27 page post on MK, really think of purchasing this lift.

That thread is awesome because it really shows where both companies come from and really cemented my decision on a MC kit over RK.
