I also want to give a shout out to these guys. I have their front lower control arms, rear track bar kit with bracket, front track bar, and their bump stop "system" (hockey pucks in the rear lol). They have absolutely the best bushing/mounts for a jeep that spends time on the road imo. Not sure about their springs. I started out with RockCrawler, but didn't like the road manners because the Jeep would get that "initial lean" when turning - as will most any multi-stage spring. I swapped to 3" BDS springs, with evenly spaced coils. Now my Jeep rides smooth and handles way better as a commuter. Dramatic difference, plus I don't rockcrawl or usually get my axles more than 10-20 degrees from level anyway....MetalCloak
Thanks Steven! Hope you take my copying as a compliment!!Coming along nicely:thumb: What's next?
Thank you! I am very happy with it so far and can't wait to get it lifted and on 35s. As for the beadlocks, these are not actual beadlocks. OMF makes these rings (bolt right onto Method Standards) and call them Sim-u-lok. More of a form of rim protection with a beadlock look.Congrats and you chose a great model to own and mod! :happyyes:
I think your wheel choice is awesome and bead locks means you can install the tires in your garage.....
My own Polar build is out of date...have since installed a Tuffy locking glove box and center console and CCM's knuckle grab-handles x4. My next plan is to do a spare tire delete, add some Rotax gas containers to that location, then do an under-the hood-onboard air (single ARB compressor with an EVO mounting plate). Also installed a Lange hard top hoist in my garage - very sweet setup!
Appreciate your input on Metalcloak. Honestly the only negative thing I have heard about them is that they are expensive.I also want to give a shout out to these guys...
Thanks Steven! Hope you take my copying as a compliment!!
1. Metal Cloak SportGate Tire Carrier
2. Metal Cloak 2.5" True dual-rate lift Rocksport edition
3. 35x12.5 Toyo RTs
I am hoping for some black friday deals from Metal Cloak that might help with the overall cost!
Going to hold off on the tires until spring.... at least I say that now.
Don't mind at all my friend:thumb: Those are big next up mods! Hope you snag some good deals. Spring is really not that far away...hope that helps:happyyes:
Might try and squeeze that Big brake kit in as well!Buildit said:Don't mind at all my friend:thumb: Those are big next up mods! Hope you snag some good deals. Spring is really not that far away...hope that helps:happyyes:
