Nice Rig!!! Thats good to hear about the MC suspension being a GREAT ride. I have them sitting in my garage waiting for their 3.5'' springs to come and a few others. I do however have a set of Currie rear uppers that I just installed a few months ago when I did my sye and dc ds. Not sure if I am going to switch them just yet. Might tho lol

My father in law is going all Currie and im going all Metalcloak so it might come down to shock choice or literally joints. See who flex more and has the best road manners. It should be fun

Nothing wrong with 5100's just do you research first. I got lucky with my 7100's. 3 of the 4 cost $50 and the 4th was $178! Do the math.

It is the 3.5" MC springs. They netted me 4" up front and 4.5" in the rear, I measured. They are designed to be a minimum of 3.5" so when you add heavy bumpers and full size spare plus body armor it could bring me down to 3.5"

I think this is going to be my next mod. I really like the looks of these. I have been putting it off for way too long!

Yep and lucky for me, my evap canister is under the hood because I have a 98.

Yeah I had planned on getting the hole saw already. I have spent most of my time getting my interior the way I wanted it and am done with that now (at least for now). I swapped in a 2005 console with subwoofer, premium sound package front enclosures, headunit from a 2007 Durango, replaced front and roll bar speakers with MTX speakers, and the sub with a kicker powered with a small kicker amp. Swapped in Grand Cherokee seats, made my camo shift knob, got a camo shift boot from Bardofett, and just installed the camo roll bar covers my fiance made for me, and last but not least my compass/temp, auto dimming rear view mirror

Definitely time to start some exterior mods.

Metalcloak 3.5 which netted me 4" over stock in the front and 4.5" in the rear. Bilstein 7100 at all 4 corners. Tax time will pay for Metalcloak arched fenders.
