Those were the two options that I was considering as well. I read the 27 page forum on one of the other sites where everyone was hitting Metalcloak with every conceivable question and it kind of helps me with my decision. I like the engineering geekery aspect to how they present their product.
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.
Make sure to have the beer and popcorn ready its a long read.
Always remember that I have taken more out of alcohol than alcohol has taken out of me.
