Lift Kit rating

Just had my 2013 JKUR lifted and below are what was done..

4" Teraflex short arm kit
Fox Shocks 2.0 w/reservoirs
Fox Shock steering stabilizer(currently running a procomp due to fox stabizr req tuning was to stiff)
5.13 gears front and back
37x12.5x20 Nitto Trail Grapplers
Kmc XD 806 Bomb wheels
Bully Dog Jeep Gt Tuner

I have to say I am very very impressed with this setup.. From a scale of 1-10.. 1 being horrible and 10 being awesome.. I give it a 9.9..my JK runs so much better than stock that I am still in awe!! I can hit the hwy going 70-80 mph an not even realize it.. The ride is so smooth feels like a caddy!! JK does not feel heavy nor sluggish at all like it did with stock setup.. Got to say I am very satisfied with it..

Bully just curious what kind of articulation can you get with this set up and what did the hole setup cost you before install if you didn't do it your self?

I'm looking to do a lift soon and am torn between spending top doller on the metalcloak or finding something a little cheeper

Lift height has little to nothing to do with articulation.
You really don't have to spend top dollar if all you 're looking for is flex.

Flex isn't all I'm looking for but I would like to hit the 12 to 14" mark as most the trails I hit have some nice size boulders on them and I'd like to push a little deeper then I'm able to get right now. Still trying to figure out what size tires I want to run so I'm still doing some research on how high I want to go. I've heard nothing but good things from ppl running the MC lifts for on and off road and since my jeep is almost a DD I'd like to keep her running smooth on road and still be able to get to those places that not many can.
