I currently have a Rough Country 2.5" spacer lift and Rubicon Shocks (w/ext), this is a great lift for those who offroad every once in a while and stay on Greens. Over the past year I have been on mainly blues and this kit just isn't cutting it any more.
What is the difference in support mods between the Metal Cloak 2.5 springs and the Metal Cloak 3.5 springs? (Both will net about .5-1" over their advertised lift with armor)
Can I get away with running the MC 2.5" springs and clear 37's?
Is there a need to upgrade the stock bump stops before switching to 37's? (Currently running 33's)
Are there any other mods that I should consider (Required/Recommended)?
The problem I am having is (Like everyone else) money is tight. I don't want to go ahead and buy the 3.5" springs then have to upgrade the Drive Shafts sooner than I need to. Especially if I could have got away with the 2.5" springs.
Current (This year) build plan:
2.5" MC Springs
Bilstien 5100's (Already have in garage)
MC Front/Rear Track Bar
MC rear shock relocation bracket
MC Front Lower Control Arms
Future (Year or more out) Build Plan:
Artec front axle armor kit (Truss and Gusset)
Yukon gears (4.88)
Nitto Mud Grapplers 37x13.5r17
