    Planning my build, any suggestions?

    I'm considering MetalCloak for the lift I was going to get. Here's a screenshot of what I'm looking at getting. Any suggestions in the same price point? Or is this a good setup to go with? I want to do more than just spacers. This is about the max of my budget. I want the most for my $$. And this was suggested by a good friend of mine. ImageUploadedByWAYALIFE1438482748.487782.jpg

    You could into Rock Krawler they make a nice 2.5 inch kit check it out

    Also EVO makes a nice kit called the Enforcer it can yield 3 inches or 4 inches and it comes with plush rides or coilovers whichever you prefer

    They also make a budget boost leveling kit check it out as well

    Just a few that I have heard are good kits
    In the end it's your decision

    Best idea is to read everything you can. A lot of misinformation is out there. Good luck!
    I am a bit of an evo fan but a lot of my local forum run RK and love it.

    in the process of replacing my 3.5" RE kit with a 3.5" RK X factor mid arm. Cant wait to see the difference. Be a few weeks as Jeep still in garage after accident. I'll let you know how it rides when I get it done. Whats your time frame for the lift install?

    What's a "mid arm" kit? What are the benefits?

    Just to add to what you're considering.. I also started with a RE 3.5" kit... It had all the parts and pieces and gave me several years of great Off-roading.. Rubicon, Slick Rock, etc.. It was what fit my (Wife's) budget..

    Now I'm swapping out parts for better quality stuff.. I have the Metalcloak Adjustable Control Arms.. Love Them.. Synergy Parts, a few RK items, etc... So, basically I bought what I could afford...was happy with it... and as time progresses I've been swapping in items that I want for Better performance. EVO is very popular on this forum and for very good reason... But there's lots of ways to build.

    Most importantly is do what makes you happy... It's your Jeep... Make it Your Statement...

“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
