    installed my Metalcloak 3.5" lift

    Only got about 15'miles since done but so far much more stable no diving when on the brakes and seems to handle corners better :-) took me all day by myself but it's a great kit and fits great.

    Metal Cloak makes very good stuff, you will be very happy with the kit, just check all the torque values after 200 miles once it settles in

    Will do a check for sure. I would agree very high quality parts that fit.

    Mine is the rocksport game changer 3.5". The only thing you need is brake fluid and a day to install. I will try to post some pictures in the morning, it's on 35" tires with 18x10 rims no clearance issues at all on a two door!

    Picked up the 3.5 Game Changer with the Fox shocks over Black Friday weekend. What Back Space did you get on your wheels? MC is recommending 4 or less which sounds like much. The wheels I am looking at are Black Rhino 17 with 4.5 back spacing. I want to put 35 KO2 on them. How about the drive shaft? To you replace it? Looking forward to start wrenching just want to make sure I get everything I need.
    Thanks

    You should be fine with 4.5" of BS with 35's. You are going to sit higher then you need to with 35" tires and you can run a new driveshaft or do the exhaust spacer for the extra cleracne you need. They may be saying 4" or less with that kit because it is better suited for 37" tires which would need the smaller back spacing.

    Great choice!

    I have the MC 3.5" Game Changer with the RockSports too. Way better than tha factory suspension. I have about 6,000 miles on it now. Feels just as good as the day it went in.
