That looks so good. What size bump stops are you running front and back with those fenders? I guess those are 35" tires?

Be sure to get the exhaust spacer kit or y pipe. Your front drive shaft will bind. I like my lift but I wish I had fit the 3.5 instead of the 2.5, my front end kinda dips lower than the front. Got some rust on a couple of my shocks. I sent metalcloak pictures but they haven't got back to me. Other than that I like it a lot

We ordered the 3,5" game changer lift plus new drive shafts front and back. Are you still running the stock front drive shaft??

That is f'n awesome. That will be my next lift. Been looking at them for a long time. Amazing how much flex you get from a bolt on kit. 3.5 Game Changer and 40's will be my next move. Here is a pic of my JKUR currently.

Looks really bad ass. I wouldn't go past 37's though. That's just my preference

I love the way 40's look on JKU. Major upgrades too run them though. It will be a while before I can swing it all.

Has any one installed the 3.5" gamechanger arb on their 2dr JK?
From what I understand, the rear coils will bow, and require one to remove, and re-weld the spring perches back on at a differnet angle to accommodate for the new pinion angle.
Any thoughts, or actual experience would be much appreciated.

I did the same lift without the shocks and rear track bar on my 2 dr. Seems like a little too much bow to me also. I was going to take mine to a shop that installs MC lifts and have them check it over to make sure I didn't get something not straight during install. Curious now reading about the spring perch issue.

Is the bowing only an issue on the 2 doors or is it an issue on the 4 doors, as well? I have been planning on doing the 3.5" dual rate ARB edition on my JKUR so, this worries me.

heck ya! have fun with that lift. I can't wait to order my 3.5" game changer setup and install it. Right now I have a teraflex 2.5" lift with bilstein 5100's and it does a good job but I want to move to this setup eventually. We do a ton of rock crawling here in Arizona and the extra height and articulation with 37's will come in handy big time.
